It works if you hit it hard enough.

I might leave it on for a few days to see if I can kill it naturally.

For a lamp so worn out its not as green as I expected it to be... Perhaps I can make it green by leaving it on.

It is dim enough where I can easily leave it on in my room without losing sleep. Yet bright enough where I cannot really stare at it.

Why there is a strong thermal afterglow of the arctube at switch off, like a MH lamp?

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 (dd.mm.yyyy).

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

Might be because the blackened arctube absorbs much more heat than usual when running that it has brighter afterglow.

Has this leaked a little? I see silvery stuff just above the neck. Curious that it needs to be hit to work, loose wire?

The black stuff was some sort of mold on the outside of the bulb.

The hitting to start it up or hot resrike it is because within the pinch seal there is an open contact. Perhaps a fuse or something.
