It's probably made just for them, (Which is why they no longer list it as a spare) so with that in mind it will be less grief to buy a complete new fitting. (wasteful, yes, grief, no)

There are "just a few" 4 pin lamp holders available Click here but that is where the grief starts, trying to find your one.

The trouble with the links you have given are that they are just 4 pin lamp holders. It looks like the OP has a combined electronic ballast and (gr10q)holder and the ballast has failed not the holder. This will make it difficult to retrofit a LED lamp as it may be difficult to bypass the ballast. To make thing worse the retrofit DD lamps are upwards of £20.

It's probably new lightfitting time :sad:

I realise that, but it was just a start. I was trying to emphasise to the OP that it is (as I said) less grief to buy a new fitting.

Would it have not been easier to say that the lightfitting is f*****d :wink: ?

When last year ? if it's within a year then it should be replaced under warranty.
