A rectifying lamp (Only one end black) triggers the starter in the storage of Carmel hosptial

Video here:
I don't know why this is happening. One end is clear means that the electrode have sufficient emissive coating and one end is black means that the electrode is deplated emitter.
In this case, the lamps should simply flicker with the mains continuously, as happened with the old inner circular lamp in my hostel that didn't triggered the starter when reached to this mode.

What's so unusual about it? The tube's acting as a half wave rectifier so the other half of the cycle goes through the starter instead, the contacts heat up and close.

@Eliot_240: So why in this video of the old inner 32W circular lamp in my hostel , the lamp reached to this mode (One end is clear and the other is blackened), but the starter wasn't triggered?

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 (dd.mm.yyyy).

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

Starter must be rather old and worn out I should think.

@Eliot_240: But you can see that it successfully ignited the old lamp and also continue to operate the replacement "Luxten" branded 32W circular lamp correctly.

Reverse the starter in its socket or swap the lamp end for end. Sometimes that will allow a lamp to rectify without flashing.

Preheat Fluorescents forever!
I love diesel engines, rural/farm life and vintage lighting!
