Looks good with them all working!

To resist is to piss in the wind, anyone who does will end up smelling.

What'd you do to fix them? Was it ballast issues? Or was it just the lamps?

That's awesome... yeah I'm a little jealous of this set up for real lol... although had this been me, all 4 of these
would be High Output Rapid Start. Maybe even VHO.

Update: The CWX lamp died so the light on the bottom left currently isn't working right now. I just took out the bulb and recycled it. My uncle needs to buy more lamps.

Wait, didn't you just install the CWX lamp back in 2018? If there was no end blackening, and if the lamp
still had vacuum, the lamp more than likely was still good. From late 2018 to now... that's a very, very short life span

@Suzukir: It was only lightly used... Yes very strange. The light next to it has September 2005 Philips DXs that came with the house when he bought it in 2017.

@Lightingguy1994: They run 5 hours a day. No constant switching.

How did it act? Was it completely dead? I can only assume it lost vacuum somehow... maybe a manufacturer error or something.
Or maybe the filament on the hot/neutral wire side broke apart...? Honestly I have no idea how Slimline lamps EOL when they
burn out on the hot/neutral wire side, as opposed to the red/blue wire side.

Sorry for the late reply, but yes, it was completely dead with the other lamp (a March 2006 Philips; still good) dimly flickering.
