Question Any ELECTRIC GURU'S OOT Here??????

Can some 1 here tell me why in the name of ZEUS!!!!!!!!!!!! When the TV is on and I flip the KITCHEN Light on the TV goes all wonky????? The Kitchen light has 1 of those Electronic ballest's in it. I used to have the old style in there but during the summer month's it would not light up because of the humidity. so I put 1 of those Electronic BAD BOY'S in there which comes on right away but like I said it makes the TV all WONKY??????????

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

Your light is causing interference. Seems odd that the other light would not work due to humidity. You should check all of your connections. One of them might be loose or have rust in it.

Sounds like you may have a loose wire connectjon. It could possibly be dangerous. Does.your TV always act up or just at the moment the light is turned on? Only momentary it"s probably just ballast interference.
Try p!ugging your TV into a different receptacle.

How many bulbs are in the fixture and what is the crazy long number off the new ballast ?? Did you look up the old ballast's number to get the replacement ??

You might try swapping out bulbs with another fixture just in case it's a bulb going bad. You might also want to check to see if you have T12's or T8's and if the ballast is rated for the bulbs you have.

Running an extension cord to another outlet on a different circuit would likely solve your problem but it would be nice to fix whatever is the cause as it's not normal for this to happen.

There is also the chance you have everything correct and it's just a glitch between the frequency of the new ballast and your TV but that's pretty unlikely. Like Micah asked, only on startup or all the time ??

interference(feedback) from ballast, theyre on the same phase so its affecting the tv, it also is the biggest cause of wifi /router/modem problems or any modern electronic gadgets.
wire terminals are loose at plugs/switches/junctions, use an interference/noise filter, get a better ballast( moe money), use led, smaller chance of interference but still possible, use old school incandescent light bulbs, or change which of the 2 phases either are on but thats not likely an option.

Bought a dead but now fixed 1980ish craftsman II 10/28....ITS ONE HEAVY BEAST

Are you using an over the air antenna? Different types of lights can cause poor reception. May want to move the antenna if that's the case. Cord cutting for the win!

Wake me up when the snow's done...

If you have a loose connection as suggested by several people, you may not get around to it if your house burns down. Electricity is not something to take lightly.

All the wires are tight up there. I don't even turn it on now since it makes the TV all WONKY. I Just use another light that is over the kitchen sink.
