Hi,

I needed replace my lights cause the bulbs burnt out. I thought they were t5 lights so I bought the Current 54w t5 lights. When I went to replace the bulbs I noticed that it said tl5 on the bulb instead of just t5. I went ahead and replaced the tl5 with the Current t5 but the lights are not turning on? Is there a difference between tl5 and t5 lights?

thanks

I would start by checking the outlet. Plug another lamp or radio into it and make sure it works.....it could be something as simple as a circuit breaker or fuse. If the outlet works then it is your fixture. Could be the plug, ballast, or bulbs. If both bulbs quit at the same time, probably the plug or ballast. Check your owners manual for troubleshooting tips.
The fans on the fixture is still working. I guess it could be the ballast because both bulbs went out at the the same time. Can I replace the ballast? Thanks for the help
