If you mean the milkiness of the quartz capsule, all mine do that with age. The metal coating in the neck area also becomes clear with age. Sometimes the milkiness extends to the reflector itself, and sometimes it starts to peel off in certain places. But when these lamps work properly, they emit a very nice light that even the best CMH cannot beat.

No, I mean the small black/blue part at the bottom of the halogen capsule.

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.
