Hi All

The fluorescent bulb in my marquee has started to flicker.I am thinking start with the basics and change the starter.Can I buy any 4w-65w 150mm starter or do I have to buy a specific one?
I dont want to cause any damage to the cabs electrics




Thanks in advance

Look at your tube too...if it has black ends, replace that too...bad tube causes bad starter causes bad tube

Initial tests indicate
       unit OK
