An energy saving CFL with an electronic ballast in my hostel, flickers with the mains

An energy saving CFL with an electronic ballast in my hostel, flickers with the mains

this fixture is for 4 lamps with E14 base.
There are 4 CFLs in it and only 3 working.
One of the lamps flickers with the mains, which means that the electrolytic capacitor of the ballast is dead.

That looks quite a bit faster than the mains to me, but I don't think most cameras can capture 120Hz.

@Xytrell: The camera always don't renders the flickering correctly.
This lamp is indeed flickers with the mains.
Our mains frequency is 50hz and fluorescents on magnetics, flickers 100hz, which my camera can capture easily.
We have no self ballasted preheat CFLs and magnetic adapter for PL, 2D or Circular fluorescent lamps imported today.
Most of the flourescent fixtures that are sold in shops in Israel have electronic ballasts and not magnetic ballasts (Rapidstarts: you can forget them in Israel).

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.
