Answer: 
No, high-pressure sodium lamps are not manufactured in yellow; rather, they are usually clear and sometimes are frosted inside to be transluscent. The color rendition is approximately like candlelight. For especially yellow HID (high-intensity discharge) lighting, switch to low-pressure sodium (LPS), popular in Europe. Home Depot carries some LPS replacement lamps, but they are tubular and others are Read More
No, high-pressure sodium lamps are not manufactured in yellow; rather, they are usually clear and sometimes are frosted inside to be transluscent. The color rendition is approximately like candlelight. For especially yellow HID (high-intensity discharge) lighting, switch to low-pressure sodium (LPS), popular in Europe. Home Depot carries some LPS replacement lamps, but they are tubular and others are u-shaped; they are NOT interchangeable with HPS lamps and cannot be used in HPS fixtures. LPS lamps emit a characteristic deep-yellow light; the fixtures are available elsewhere. Read Less

Other times they just stop working, but if they are off for a long time they can also damage the ballast and you need to change both the bulb and they ballast. Still other times the ballast fails first and so you need to keep both the bulb and ballast on hand to do quick repairs or like us have a store that stocks them across the street. Read Less

Answer: 
These lamps don’t “burn out” like a traditional lamp. They will cycle on and off at end of life – meaning that they will light up for a period of time, then turn off, only to turn on several minutes later.
