Hi
Driveway ground lights GU10 LED bulbs flickering. 2 out of 3 bulbs. Took out to test on another circuit. Still flickering. See video. Is this faulty bulb or fitting?

Seeing as GU10 lamps do not need "control gear" it is improbable it is the fitting.

But more info is needed.

Are they new lamps or have they been in for a while? (how long)
Have they both started at the same time or not?
What brand of lamp are they?

Been in the ground 18 months but only just got round to wiring up so never been on. Maybe damp? Tested a new bulb in the fitting, not the outside circuit but on internal circuit, same circuit as video,, and that isn't flickering. Guessing issue with bulbs? 1/3 is ok this is the middle lamp on a run of three operating off the same switch.
Cheers

If you are saying you tried one of the lamps indoors and it did the same, you need a different brand of lamp.
