I have a coralife 36 watt power compact and while on vacation for a week when I came back the light no longer was working. My neighbor was taking care of the feeding and I think they left the lights on. (not sure) anyway I just ordered a new bulb however if it does not work are there anythink else in paticular to look for that may have gone bad. Thanks

recurring issue with Coralife ballasts. My 36" fixture ballast failed a couple months ago. Awaiting the second one to die. don't bother replacing the ballast (that particular ballast costs $40-50).

in the meantime, I replaced my fixtures with the new Deep Blue T5/led fixtures. they're awesome. dual ballasts/larger alum heat distribution/led moonlights.

Check out Catalina Aquarium. Talk to them very helpfull. Think about a T5HO or a T5 HO retrofit. For the price of fixing yours and a few $ you can get a T5HO.
