Default Re: Inverter tester using old CFL

The tester is made to drive one or two CCFL bulbs at a time. The 18 are part of a 32in TV where all the bulbs were wired in parallel. The center not being lit is not important as it is due to lack of power. The important thing is that they are uniform and all lit, if one was bad it would stand out. I was just wanting to show what it could do when pushed beyond it's design limits. I would also not do this for very long as it could damage the driver.
