I have a 250W HPS lamp that this happened to. The lamp doesn't warm up to full brightness; it remains in a LPS-colored low-brightness state. Maybe as bright as a 50-70W lamp instead of the full 250. I wonder how much energy it consumes in that state. Hot restrikes are instant too, which is cool. Warm up is pretty dragged out as well.

I have that also in my Philips son-t pro lamp...

Interestingly, my 250W lamp is also a Philips-made lamp (branded Supreme). GE 250W lamps seem to have had an issue with this at some point in the mid-late 90s. A number of M-250R2s here from that era had that dim-operating LPS color issue. I had reported some as "cycling" in order to get them fixed, and new lamps got the fixtures to full brightness. The ones I didn't report were still working when they were replaced by LEDs last year. They seem to last a long time in that state.

Picked up this lamp in an NOS American-Electric wallpack. Was quite disappointed that the this lamp had already failed. I thought about tossing it, but decided to post a picture here just in case someone (fellow member, visitor) has never seen this before.

Thank You, I have never seen this before (I don't have any HPS fixtures the only HID fixtures I have are Metal Halide)
Also that's a shame looked like an interesting lamp
