Got light boxes at the offices.

Two are now having issues with two tubes out, but because of the circuit have established that only one tube/starter has an issue in each box.

One of the starters doesn't seem to work. Have moved bulbs and starters around and whittled it down to starter issue.

I have replaced with a new starter (tried a few) and they dont seem to work.

Is there a specific starter for certain types of tubes. These are the ones I'm replacing with: Sylvania Luxline Plus G13 T8 Fluorescent Tube 1350lm 18W 590mm

The light boxes are flurescent tube boxes, 4 x 590mm, with Philips S2 starters 4-22w.

I have tried General Electric starters with the following text on it: 155/800, 1500mm 80w, 1800mm 75/85w, 2400mm 100/125w.

Any help greatly appreciated.

You have to use a T2 starter. And swap them in pairs as they are so cheap. Sometimes called FS2.

I would be surprised if they did not.
