Q:if my Philips F32T8/DX lamps show no sign of burn-out (black spots at end of bulb) in my 4-lamp strip light but will not go on, is it most likely the ballast has failed?
by|Dec 3, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  The ballast could certainly be the culprit. If you have any known, working bulbs try to install those into the fixture and if they do not turn on then the ballast has likely failed.

    Answer This Question

    A:  Yes - just note these are soft white color temperature where your reference bulb is a cool white. The correct replacement cool white can be found at https://www.homedepot.com/p/Philips-32-Watt-4-ft-Alto-Linear-T8-Fluorescent-Tube-Light-Bulb-Cool-White-4100K-2-Pack-479667/303811442

          Just bought them Saturday. I hate the color. It said bright white great for kitchens. But it’s a yellow light and horrible for kitchens. I may throw them out and buy different ones.

          Great Replacement for the 4100k version that was too harsh
          So I had the 4100k Cool White version of these bulbs in my kitchen for about 4 years until 1 failed. I always thought it was a bit harsh. Looked online and my local HD had the 3000K version in stock. I prefer Soft/ Warm White lighting and these bulbs are a perfect match for the rest of my lighting. My kitchen is not as harsh in the lighting anymore.

            Packaging says "bright white". I replaced a tube next to another tube and this new tube is yellow and dimmer than the original tube. Very disappointed that the light is NOT "bright white" like the other tube.

            Philips Fluorescent Tubes should last 8 years according to the package label. My last one only lasted 21 months - not even close to the 8 years based on 6 hrs a day 7 days a week (again based on package label). I have resorted to keeping my receipts and labeling the bulbs as Philips will only honor replacement with the receipt.Unfortunately Home Depot only stocks Philips bulbs. If you can find other brands I would recommend trying them.

            Package claims bright white for kitchen
            I didn't know about Kelvin ratings for color, but the package I'm holding clearly states bright white for kitchen and bath. It's an outright lie, as these bulbs are more yellow than your aunt Karen's nicotine stained teeth.

              I have used these Phillip’s bulbs for over 5 years. I track lighting operating hours and found that this product exceeds the hours quoted in the on the package. Most off brand bulbs do not. This is the only product I can find with. 3000 to 3500 K light rating. soft light. Most products are 4000 minimum and typically 5000-6000K. That is harsh light. Your incandescent bulbs were 2700-3000K. If you want pleasing soft light go with this product. The product price was acceptable.
