I use fluorescent shop lights as grow lights, and one of the new ones suddenly started blinking on and off today. Not just flickering, actually blinking on and off. I've gotten pretty frustrated with the Walmart shop lights before because the holes that you put the hooks in are too close to the wires, but this one did seem to be working okay right after I hung it.
Our power went off briefly once today. But, since all the older shop lights came back on, I don't understand why this one didn't do so as well. Anybody have any ideas? I've already tried unplugging and replugging it, monkeying with the bulbs, etc. All of the other lights plugged into the same strip still are working, so it isn't the strip or timer that is at fault.
