check the power cord is wired right and check the ballast grounding and laminations. regent ballasts are crappy maybe u should put in a different brand like AE.

i would try seeing if moving wires would help,but that would risk blowing a new lamp,i think its the ballast this time.

Generally the middle connector is the input, one connector has a black mark, that's the output to the lamp. The last connector goes to the neutral.
