I have a T5 Actinic light hood. I've had it for about 2 years now. It has 2 blue bulbs and 2 whites. My whites stopped working but the blues are fine. I've wiggled all the chords and wires but I'm not very mechanical. Any ideas on what might be wrong or where I can take it to find out.
Also, till I get it fixed,is it better to run just the blues or none at all?

Could be a bad bulb or a ballest went out, do you have any other bulbs to check it with?

Take the known good bulbs an swap out with the ones that are not working. If they don't come on, then it is probably the ballast. Then take the bad bulbs and put them on the known good circuit. If they light up, you confirmed either wiring or ballast.
