Sounds like a grd issue . I can"t help anymore than that tho . The new lighting fixtures have me stumped . I had installed many various types of lighting yrs ago being I did residental & commercial wiring & lately some 8" flueresants have been dieing on me in my shop . Used to be easy & simple to replace tubes or ballasts , but now they"ve went & changed codes & manufacturing standards of tubes & ballasts . The first ballast I replaced last summer took me a couple days to get wired correctly . But then I"m not good at standing on ladders & being off the ground very far either since I"ve become disabled . I did get one fixture working , but still have 3 or 4 more since then quit working . Now , believe it or not , I forget how I wired the cussed ballast so it would work . Oh the joys of getting old , loosing brain cells & then of course code standards changing to confuse me even more . I do know that a friend I"ve dealt with for years at my old electrical supply warehouse said with these new ballsts , grds are an issue . He advised scraping any paint away so you get a good secure grd . Also use a dielectric grease to ensure a good non corrosive contact .HTH ! God bless, Ken
