    Can a Flourescent Light Ballast be tested?

    Replace the suspect ballast.
    If the light now works, then it was bad.

      I might have time to head to Fla. with a sharp pointed boot. You got any hemorrhoids?

          Used to, but the last hillbilly I messed with stomped a
          mudhole in my azz, then turned around and stomped it dry.

            It was the ballast. Just replaced the whole fixture assembly.

              There is an Actual way to test a Ballast. You would want to check the voltage across the ballast. The voltage across it will be very low while the starters are operating. After the flurocent gas starts to conduct. The Voltage will Increase.

                  We live in an age of "swap-tronics" , if a flourescent fixture no longer works, change the ballast with a new one, it is that simple.
