This is a GE 175w /DX mercury lamp. The starting probe didn't fuction, it just made the lamp glow dim pink. I ran it up on my 250w PSMH ballast (I know, bad idea :P), and it worked. When I switched it off then on again, there was arcing in between the arctube frame and the base of the lamp. Then suddenly, this part glowed white hot and melted away. it was scary and cool at the same time. The glass part and getter in the base are blackened from the vaporization. Now, if I try to run it on the ballast, it just arcs in the base and the arctube dimly flickers. The killer, the 250w PSMH ballast, lurks in the backround.
