    I have had starters go on florescent fixtures before. They are like $3 for a pack of 2 I think. Looks like a small (usually white) cylinder near where the bulb rests or sometimes in other spots. Possible you may have gotten a bad bulb as well. If those are all good, then the ballast would be next.

    OK so is that bulb original replacements or something new you trying.. what i am trying to say those hoods have ballast and they design for different types bulbs. Either way if you do replacing it with same bulb and it won't come on completely is the ballast...
