    Hi all I'm new to the forum and this is my first post.
    My red sea max is having problems with its lights. They come on stay on for a while then start to flash and go off. I've been in touch with the suppler but they want £205 for a complete new lid. They are not really interested as I bought it second hand. I've had a look round for a new ballast but can't find one exactly the same wattage.
    Has anybody had the same problem if so how do I reslove it
    Many thanks

    On my 130 model the lights were really hard to push in all the way. Had to brace it thru the fan slots as I seated then all the way in, mine were doing the same as yours until I did this.
