At one end of the tube will be printed some data. Post all that is there, I may see something I can figure out. I know some names and terms that can help.

As long as the tube is not more than a year old, it may still be fine, depending what it is, and the above data should help us sort that out.

That isn't helpful but no matter. You might want to look into a new tube. The same length as the tube you have is what you want in a T8. A full spectrum or daylight with a kelvin around 6500K.
