Shoot--Marineland Eclipse lighting issue!-help

Cliff Z

Recommended Posts


I have a 3 gal Marineland Eclipse and recently the light went dead. I noticed the molded plastic ballast is discolored with brown and black spots and streaks. Is this normal? Before I replace bulb as first shot at troubleshooting issue, Can I put a voltmeter on the pin ends of the lighting unit to see if ballast is ok? 120v? Even the texture of the ballast casing seems irregular with wavy/bumpy feel. The lighting unit is all one piece so If its not the bulb, then its the ballast--ugh.

Anybody experience this brown/black on the outside of their Eclipse ballast? Can I test with voltmeter?
