Hps lamp stops working after a few minutes

Hello boys, so today morning i've noticed that one of my 600w hps lamp don't work. I switches the ballast off and ON again - it works but goes off again in few minutes... maybe 10min something about that. I had no time to look better at it as needed to go to work...

 

I am using LUMII BLACK DIGITAL BALLAST (dimmable) and i heard they are shit.

 

I reckon the faulty is ballast right? If lamp would be dead then it would not switch On at all right?

 

Just asking as i want to go and buy faulty part straight after work...

Sounds like a fucked ballast, you are right, if your lamp was fucked it wouldn't do anything. I had 3 Lumii ballasts, all 3 failed after 2 grows i think it was. Utter shite.

their lumii digita ballasts are much much better,

they also  have a 5 yr guarantee...

 

and omega ones are even worse than the cheap lumiis
