So, my backbox long bulb is out in Tron. I tried switching out a bulb from another Stern to see if it was the bulb. It is not. I have no idea where to begin. Any help would be appreciated.

If not bulb, or starter. Then the ballast is bad.

Here is a ballast on amazon that is half the price of marco if the starter is not the issue.
