Astro City Marquee light

Post by SailorLodestar » July 12th, 2019, 9:26 am

Anyone know what kind of fluorescent light goes in an Asto(not new) City marquee? Hoping it's something I can pick up at home depot or amazon.

It's the same size as the lamp in Blast and Net City cabinets. Unfortunately I have no idea what the size is in your crazy American measurements. Here it's just a regular 600mm lamp you can pick up from any hardware store.

It actually wasn’t the same as my blast city. It’s an 18 inch f15 T8 with FG-1E ballast started.

So I got the light and a new starter for good measure but now I have a new problem. Whenever I secure the back plate of the Astro, the light goes out. Particularly if I press down on the left side of the cabinet. When I try to close the monitor hood back flush, the light goes out. Anyone have experience with this problem?

I can keep the light on by leaving the top on loose but then the light spills out from the side of the cab. I can also see it through the top of the monitor bezel. Is it possible I have my belle upside down? Or is it fully symmetrical?

Thanks for any advice.
