ATI 8 Bulb 80 watt Sunpower

Two light bays on my fixture are not working. I swapped the bulbs and they work in other bays. Any idea what may be causing this problem. Also, bulbs are brand new, came in the mail today.

Thanks

The fixture has 2 ballasts. 1 of them runs 6 bulbs and the other runs the other 2. You likely have a bad ballast or a connection issue on that ballast.

Check the ends where the bulbs plug in. I find they can get corroded. They are replaceable.

Sincerely,

David
