    Still a newbie at this, so I am seeking guidance from the experts here. Looking at a back light not working. I started with replacing the FS-2 as the original looked burnt out. That did not work, so I moved on to getting a replacement tube, that didn't work. So now I am wondering if it is possible the transformer or something else that I am not aware of. Anyone have any suggestions for me to look at for possible solution?

    Check the package the bulb came in. You might have to rewire the towers the bulb plugs into.

    Fixed it. It was a broken hot wire!
