Fluorescent energy-saving lamps in recent years become increasingly popular, despite its relatively high cost. Indeed, all the good these lights are, but the one absurdity of spoiling their reputation. Adapted standard electroputere E27 bulb (photo 1) are too large (diameter) of the Central contact area and when screwing them into the cartridge cases when the site closes both contact.
The result is an electric arc and burning pads in the socket energy-saving bulb, and then the cartridge. Moreover, if the house is equipped with phase and neutral wire switch-machines And 25 (and higher current), they do not have time to work lamp becomes unsuitable for further use. You can try to take the burnt bulb back to the store or exchanged for serviceable — because, in fact, guilty of rather lamp manufacturer than the manufacturer of the cartridge, especially when you consider that the latter previously worked with conventional electric bulbs. If you receive a rejection and a new lamp to buy, costly, and risky (and suddenly again burn!), it is possible to restore the damaged energy-saving lamps.
This is done so.
Burnt-out lamp socket gently remove, and then the eyes master appears in the electronic Board voltage Converter, connect two conductors to the contacts of the socket, and the four outgoing contacts in a glass tube (having a straight or spiral shape) fluorescent lamp.
