If it is not that then there is a break in the wire, you can try taking it all apart and checking the wire. It could also be the contacts on the bulb housing. Anything regardless really is going to be a bit of slightly dangerous work.
You risk either damaging the fixture taking it apart or you risk at WORST the possibility of being electrocuted if you make a mistake.
I am a qualified electrician so I know what I am doing, which is why I suggested you get a professional electrician to look at it.
The little starters in flourescent tubes, actually for a split second get hotter than the surface of the sun when they first start up to agitate the powder in the tubes.
thanks, i tried the starters and another bulb it wont work i really want this working cos my tank is too dark 1 light isnt enough for a deep tank
