Relax, not a total, lights out, sky is falling, studio is closing sort of thing.
Today while using our Britek fluorescent lights I heard some very disturbing fizzing and popping sounds from the lights. As you might guess this was not a good sound, basically alerting me to the eminent demise of the light.
Funny thing is, that all the lights quit around the same time? We have 4 untis and each began to fail within the last week. I don’t think its the studio electrics, we just had an electrician in, for other reasons, and he did not notice anything out of the ordinary with the wiring for the studio space.
Our Britek lights are an important part of our studio and very popular with many of the photographers and videographers who rent from us. First thing tomorrow I’ll be taking them in for repair and luckily the Britek offices are just a hop, skip, 2 freeways and a lunch away from our studio.
This does not affect our normal rental operations, and we still have a full set of Hensel studio strobes available.
