Bright lights may make fish uncomfortable but can't kill them unless it's making temp in tank too warm.
Most fish that die are a result of being kept in poor water conditions either at fish store or in our tanks.
To find out ,you might test your water for ammonia,nitrites,and nitrates or take a sample of your water to the fish store and ask them if they would test it for you. Many of the stores will do it .

I haven't heard of light killing fish. Unless it's very very bright or it makes the water really hot. Like using a floodlight on a 10 gallon.

I've heard of some fish jumping and getting lodged on the lighting tube and getting fried, though.

If it is an incadesent light and you leave it on to long it will over heat the water which can kill any fish.

You posted this in 2 sections I answered in the other to but here it is again. Like the others said if it raised the water temp to much it can kill them. I had beautiful fancy tail guppys years ago when I was still in school, I went on a trip out of town with school and my mom left there light on the whole 4 days, all night and day while I was gone when I got home the tank water tempature was around 95 and all my fish were dead. My mom felt awful and so did I. I had left the light off but she had gone into feed them and had turned it on and did not relize she needed to turn it back off.

i think the more important question is....what are you water parameters?
nitrite
ammonia
nitrate
ph?

something is the water chemistry is more likely to be off than a lighting issue....
