    Wait... Was it the ballast or the bulb? Or both? A lot of times the capacitor just needs to be replaced in those old ballasts... Cheap fix. But I don't know what burned up. Bulbs you can get at home depot, of course. Ballasts or capacitors you might need to go online. Mag ballasts are dirt cheap nowadays, but even digitals have gotten affordable. Good luck to you.

    Sucks man, I have a complete 1000w magnetic setup just sitting in the corner that I'd give to you if you where closer, it would cost too much to ship. I paid around $350 for my 600w lumetek switchable with cool tube and hood last year.
    Atleast you where in a position to rearrange.

    I use an ipower brand ballast for my 1000, and it has been working beautifully for well over a year of constant use. They are considerably less expensive than a Lumatek, for what it's worth. I just found one on Amazon for $158 for you, if you can swing it. They're switchable and dimmable. I also use their branded bulbs and they are quite effective, as anyone who has looked at my 1000w journal can see.

    Don't you just love it when the community comes together with a common goal?

    I hope you're happy with the new ballast, frog. If the old one was magnetic then this would be an opportunity to switch to digital

    Hell, I'm running el cheapo Apollo digi ballasts, 1000 and 600 bloom/veg. Switchable, dimmable, paid about 350 for both with hood, hangers and both bulbs. Replaced the bulbs so far that's it. Carry a 3 year warranty if they are still in business, lol.

    I guess I didn't get much of a deal. My ballast is 600w lumetek switchable 300w, 400w, 600w, and super lumens setting, dual breakers with a cool tube, bulb and reflector.
    Oh well.

    I have heard from others that Apollo seems to be pretty reliable, that was why I figured give them a spin. If the die after 3 years I should have gotten my money out of them by then.

    I will note on some days there is rf interference, ie radio signal distortion. But it is pretty minor.

    frog be sure to ask for a discount for your inconvenience, or even better an extra bulb for backup. your time is valuable too bro. always nice to have an extra just in case.
