HELP: Lights turning off after few seconds


New member
My jbj deluxe lights (the one with the external ballast) all of a sudden shut off when I was in the room. I unplugged them, and plugged them back in, and they go on for 5 seconds approx and then shut back off. Any ideas on what to do/fix. It's plugged into a surge protector so i dont think that was the problem..
I have to leave today, so the best I can think of is throw 30 inch coralife on it that only has one of the 65 watt bulbs currently for a temp fix
Thanks in advance.
