    Having had my 8P drop into limp mode a fair bit recently - I do feel for him there. Mine couldn't pull the skin off of a rice pudding - until you restart it. Hopefully changing the Solenoid block has got rid of my problem.

    Afternoon mofo's, finally installed all my energy saving light tubes and fixings at the shop this morning, totally fubar'd! Suppose to save me 70% electric in the long run, this better work! lol

    Batteries in my 10yr old maglight was drained also, so taking it apart revealed leaking battery acid, which means time to invest in a new one! Gutted, it was a handy weapo.... I mean light to have around!

    My mother's birthday today also, so having dinner later on, Happy Birthday Mum!

    Jojo what bulbs have you got? Are they replacements for normal fluorescent tubes? I need something for my garage and was researching LED replacements which will give me a bit more light too as it's not very well lit in my garage.

    High frequency tubes, I changed he whole fitting/case, it doesn't use starters anymore, so saves energy there, and they get brighter as they warm up! The tube are half the diameter(16mm) and brighter than before. LEDs are more economical still, but the price of replacements are ridiculous!

    Give me some more info mate.

    Are they direct replacements for flo tubes? Do they use less energy then normal tubes? I've got 3 fittings in my garage at the moment.

    Yep you can just change the tubes if you want I have one in my kitchen it's a 5ft tube my fitting is a standard fitting with a starter, it's not a high frequency fitting still works though. The high frequency ones use a bit less energy but nothing to shout about and LED fittings are bright but not as bright as these tubes and they cost the earth, there also faults with them overheating and cutting out. The tubes i use are actually called ACTIVA 172's not 870's there about £6.75 per tube and make my kitchen look like operating theatre how bright they are but it's the fact that there such a white daylight effect rather than the yellow tone normal tubes give off.

    Sounds like a plan mate. If I can brighten up my garage it'll be mint for detailing in

    How can I check my current fittings to see if I need starters? I'm clueless with all this shizzle.

    You can use your standard fittings, go to a specific lighting shop and ask for white light tubes, they usually have a 'W' or something similar in the part number. They are usually the same wattage, but a lot brighter!

    You don't need to change anything Neil just swap the tubes straight over, if they have starters the little round things on the side then there normal fittings if they don't have starters there high frequency that's the difference, when I fit these tubes I replace the starters at the same time if they have them, just preventative maintenance that's all.

    Ok so I need to check for the little round nob thing on the side? I'll check tonight and report back.

    How much are the starters? I might as well replace them at the same time.
