A "Nice" looking 32w CFL trashed.

A "Nice" looking 32w CFL trashed.

Why does a clean & bright looking lamp fail? The electronic components will fail, that's why. Took the base apart.. the four lamp eletrode leads were just wrapped around pin outputs from the circuit.

I've also found with some of these that they can fail at the electrodes as the glass is weak on them at the bend.

The wrapping connection is ok if it is wrapped on square pins. There must be some "mechanical" connection there because it is impossible to reliably solder the tube's electrode wires

It is something else that failed for sure. Maybe even the filament in the lamp (from bad connection, not from eol)
