    Hi All

    I have a Boyu TL550 and everything was working perfectly until yesterday.
    The 2 Blue LED Moonlights don't switch on now.
    The other lights work perfectly.
    I have had the 2 LED's tested and they are still fine.
    So anyone have any experience with the same issue????

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    @JS

    There are 2 Small White Round screw out (fuses) I think.
    These seem fine too.
    I will take the hood off tonight and see whats cooking....

    @dallasg

    If you do not use them, do you run the normal lights and switch leave the tank dark at night?

    the 2 round white screw out things are the "starters" for the PL Light tubes....they dont affect the LED. :)
