Troubleshoot and fix or replace defective lamp connectors or sockets for fluorescent light fixtures.:

This article series explains how to diagnose and repair fluorescent lights in buildings.

If the simple repairs we describe here don't cure the problems with your light fixture, switch off the bad-acting light, leave it off, circuit and ask for help from a licensed electrician.

We also provide an ARTICLE INDEX for this topic, or you can try the page top or bottom SEARCH BOX as a quick way to find information you need.

Common Types of Fluorescent Lamp Sockets

How to insert a fluorescent bulb into the lamp sockets (C) Daniel Friedman at

[Click to enlarge any image]

Bi-Pin Fluorescent Bulbs: rapid / programmed start

Traditional straight fluorescent bulbs use a turn-type connector whose internal metal clips contact two pins at each end of the bulb.

The electrical industry refers to these as bi-pin bulbs and bi-pin sockets.

The photo above is of a T8 type lamp being held in the position to insert the lamp into the socket holder. You can also see the two brass-colored clips into which the pins will connect.

Bi-pin sockets used to connect traditional "rapid start" or "programmed start" ballasts with bulbs whose connectors look like that in the photo I show below.

T8 type flourescent lamps use a bi-pin connector like this (C) Daniel Friedman at

The T8 turn-type lampholder takes a 1" diameter bulb and is designed for a medium, bi-pin socket, "non-shunted" for programmed-start ballasts.

Center Pin Instant Start Fluorescent Bulbs

Above, and in more detail below, our photos illustrate the other common type of straight fluorescent lamp socket, center pin, and the bulb and connector's contact points. This is a single pin bulb connects to a single center pin Fa6 base. The pin is 6mm in diameter.

Watch out: don't knock yourself out looking for a separate starter: instant-start fluorescent bulbs use a different type of transformer and they do not use an additional starter.

Center pin bulbs use a ballast / transformer that provides the bulb starting current without needing the additional starter device that we discuss at FLUORESCENT LIGHT STARTER REPLACEMENT

Replace a Bad Fluorescent Bulb Connector or Base

Fluorescent lamp base connector (C) Daniel Friedman at InspectApedia.comWatch out: Changing a fluorescent lamp or bulb and changing the fluorescent lamp starter (if your lamp uses a starter) are easy tasks within the ability of most homeowners or occupants.

Electrical wiring is a different story: if you are not trained and comfortable with proper electrical wiring and repair work, hire someone who is qualified. Making a mistake can cause a building fire, shock, injury, or death.

Fluorescent Lamp Socket Defects

Inspect each lamp socket and the metal connectors inside.

Look for

  • Loose socket: you may simply need to tighten mounting screws
  • Loose wire connection to the socket: the electrical connections may need to be re-made or a twist-on connector replaced or tightened
  • Cracked body of the socket: replace the holder
  • Missing, burned, corroded metal terminals or contacts; clean or replace as needed

In my photo above you can see that this fluorescent light fixture, an original fixture installed in the bathroom of a Two Harbors MN home built in 1963, used two straight bulbs as there are two base connectors at each end of the fixture.

I have also marked the starter found at one end of the fixture.

In my next photograph, found just below, you may notice that the two bulb sockets do not match exactly.

The inner socket of the pair is a replacement unit that I installed after finding that the original had lost its internal clips - that meant the inner bulb would not light no matter what other repairs were made.

As long as the replacement base handles bulb pins of the same spacing (the bulb type and diameter), and as long as the wattage and voltage are within limits of the fixture (they will be for just about any residential fluorescent lamp fixture) the repair will work - it did.

The bulb connector clip surface can fail to make good contact with the bulb's connecting pins if the connector is loose in its mount or if its clips are bent, broken, corroded, or lost entirely.

Replacement connectors are inexpensive and are widely available, and their wiring connections are rather simple if you simply replace-in kind by wiring the new connector exactly as the old one was connected.

Two screws mount the replacement connector to the metal strap and its wire(s) connect matching the connections of the wires you removed when you disconnected the old bulb connector-base. You made a note of that, right? OR took photos?

Watch out: there are several turn-type fluorescent lamp connectors: to be sure you're buying the right replacement you can

Measure the length and distance between the pins on your fluorescent bulb

Measure the distance between the connector clips

Take the old connector along to your electrical supplier to match it properly.

Tale care as well that the replacement bulb connector is rated to meet or exceed the voltage and wattage of the light fixture.

Take a careful look at the base of the lampholder: match the base design to the lampholder you are replacing.

You'll see that usually the lampholder base simply slips into a slot cut into the steel of the fluorescent light fixture face.

T5 Power Connector

This is a power connector, manufactured by Mirrorstone™ to be compatible with our T5 LED tube lights.

It’s fashioned from tough white plastic and comes complete with two metal screw-in brackets.

The T5 LED tube light is designed to be an alternative to T5 fluorescent tubes, and is packaged along with these power connectors. This item will replace a mislaid or damaged connector, or can be used to join together more than one LED tube light.

We have a super selection of T5 LED tube lights with which this connector is compatible, so you should find one that’s perfectly suited to your requirements.

There’s the 600mm, 2ft 450 Lumens, the 900mm, 3ft 710 Lumens, the 1200mm, 4ft 990 Lumens and the 1500mm, 5ft 1200 Lumens, so you’re really spoilt for choice!

Why Choose LED Tube Lights?

T5 LED tube lights are becoming increasingly popular as replacements for traditional fluorescent tubes, because of their versatility and also due to the fact that they outlive and outperform them on so many levels.

They come in a choice of two colour temperatures, so you’ll be able to define the lighting ambience of your room according to its function.

Fluorescent tube lights are available only in the utilitarian cool white (6000K) option, so they’re not really suitable for the more convivial living areas that suit the warm white (3000K) temperature so well.

They have an extremely long life-expectancy. At a massive 70,000 hours, they’ll work at optimum performance for more than twice as long as fluorescents, meaning that you won’t have to replace them for well over a decade!

They’re better for your health! Unlike fluorescent bulbs, which flicker continually and cause headaches and eye-ache, LED T5s produce a constant light and work silently, so no more annoying buzzing !

LED tube lights don’t contain poisonous mercury either, and nor do they emit potentially harmful UV rays, like fluorescent tubes, AND they’re fully recyclable, so they don’t damage the environment.

Savings Galore!

Because LED tubes are so much more energy-efficient than traditionally used fluorescent tube lights, they’ll cost you much less to run. The LED T5s, for example, produce the same number of Lumens, yet cost a tiny fraction in terms of the electricity they require!

We frequently update our discount and promotional codes. Just apply the correct code to your shopping basket and you’ll get up to 20% off selected items.

You may wish to create an account with us, in order to become a trade customer. By doing this, you’ll be able to take advantage of our further reduced wholesale prices!

Returns And Money Back Guarantee

If you buy one of our LED lighting products and you’re not 100% satisfied with it, simply cancel it within 14 days of the date of your purchase, and we’ll replace it or give you a refund.
