Ceiling Light's 3-Way Switch Faulty - Pls Help

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I'm clueless when it comes to lightings and electrical stuff. Hope any kind soul can help me :)

I have a 3-way switch ceiling light in my master room. Meaning to say:

- Switch on 1st time, it's the 3 x fluorescent light

- Switch on 2nd time, it's the 4 x halogen light

- Switch on 3rd time, it's having all the lights together (3 fluorescent light + 4 halogen light)

I have been using it for about a year now and I think it should still be ok, ie. not spoilt. But I'm not sure.

What happened is I have never touched (ie. made changes) or repaired my ceiling light before ever since the renovation. One fine day, the 3 fluorescent light just didn't start up when I switched on for the 1st time. If I press the switch again for 2nd time, the 4 halogen light still work. If press another time (3rd time), all don't work. In short, switch on 1st time, no light. 2nd time, there's light. 3rd time, no light.

I have since changed the 3 lamp tubes and the 3 starters for the fluorescent light, but the same problem persists.

Is anyone able to help me please? Thanks a million :)

PS: My contractor has closed down already, so I can't call him for help.

Looking for good contractors? Click here for your request

Walk into a lighting shop, select and buy a new light, ask them to supply an electrician to help install the light and pay them for the service. Dont buy from them if they cant help you install for a fee or provide you an electrician to assist to install at a fee.

it can be Ballast for the fluorescent light or swithing IC that is giving you the problem. High chance is the IC problem which cost about S$10 or S$20 for remote version.

Changing these will need some level of electrical knowledge and I do not suggest you do it.

Good luck.

Thanks BeBeCc for the info. We hesitated to change it ourselves when we saw the wirings.

Do you have anyone reliable to recommend?
