I am trying to resolve my flashing fluorescent tube problem. The light does not have a started but has a pack which I believe lowers voltage and powers the start up. The off switch is mechanical IE a pull chord. I guess there is some leakage of current which continuously charges the pack which when charged tries to start the lamps causing a very fast flicker or flash. It happens every minute or so but is so dull you cannot see it in the day time only at night.How do I solve it and is it dangerous?PS mirror is on a 5 amp rcd as in a bathroom.many thanksJustin[MOD EDIT: JUSTIN - CAN YOU PLEASE EDIT YOUR POST TITLE TO RE-PHRASE IT AS A SELF-CONTAINED, MEANINGFUL QUESTION, IN-LINE WITH FORUM POLICY.

I suspect if it is an older mirror type florecent like mine...one on each side of my mirror then each bulb will have a ballast and they are round small cylindric barrels with 1 or two prongs on each end, which goes up into the hole and turns into place much like the tube...I will post a picture hang on..
