Check ground, and check lamp for continuity. Sometimes they look good but are broken.

Good luck.

checked all that, the meter was showing a complete circuit.

but its working now, we decided it must've been the plug in the back not seating properly, enough to give the reading but not enough to get the current through.

thanks anyway.

Still physically separate and reconnect the earth as sometimes it can arc out when load is put into the circuit and the earth fails.

I have contacted lightforce just today..
One of my lights has been doing the same thing for a while now and i have been puting up with it..
But about four weeks ago it had died fully (globe is fine),,and a couple of days ago the other one has started doing it also....
It will work one time and not the next....
When i take the globe out and put it back in it would work....
Lightforce said the xgt's do have a little problem...
They have asked me to bring them in on Friday so they can inspect them...

let us know the verdict please Voxson. my XGT's are new but I assume it'll happen sooner or later too. Who are you taking it to in ADL?
