We’ve just had a light just go on us, it has 10 g4 halogen bulbs in it and just totally went while we were watching tv, all the other lights work and none of the switches have tripped on the box, if you flip the light switch you can slightly see the bulbs Flicker. Has the light fitting gone?

I tried the switch and the light has just come on, what’s going on with this light? Faulty transformer?

Transformers can overheat and fail under load. This is a sure sign its on its way out.

Eventually it'll go totally.

Is it a case of just wiring the new one in?

Yes, quite literally. But do take pictures first. You could even make sure it is dead with your new meter. :-)

This is the light in question, I’m not sure what wires are there, I just hope the new one will wire straight in
