Ok, I just connected and tried to fire up my Gavita Digistar 600e with a new 600w Philips Greenpower HPS bulb. Here's what happens: after three seconds, the bulb turns on and immediately turns off. The led on the ballast continues to rapidly pulse a yellow light, which according to the manual means that it's igniting. It says that if there's a problem, check the wiring and the bulb. I figured that the bulb was turning on so there was probably no problem in the wiring. (I should make it clear here that the plug that came with the ballast to connect it to the mains is two pin - this means there is no grounding on the mains end). Is there any way for me to definitively find out if the problem is with the bulb or the ballast? Because I was really looking forward to doing a vert grow with this ballast, if i'm not going to have a working 600w, I need to change my setup and the distance of the screen from the bulb accordingly to work with a 400w. any ideas people??
