when you said that you wiggled the endcap all was fine. the problem is not your ballast but either the endcap or the wiring to the endcap. first try wiggling the wires without moving the endcap if this has an affect then you probably have a corroded wire to one of the endcap leads. if only wiggling the endcap does it then you have a corroded connector inside the endcap. i have been using current orbits and outer orbits for a while now and have never seen this problem with them. i have seen this problem quite often with a DIY retrofit kits. the current fixture sounds like it was used without the acrylic lens on it, and probably on a saltwater tank. i have been keeping reef tanks for many years and i have seen salt splash get into places that i would never suspect.
