I recently wired (with my dad's help!!!) a new light for a bedroom where there was no light before. When you turn it on the light starts to light up for a split second then gives up. If you turn it off again and wait a few seconds you can then get another split second of light by turning it on again! Can't work out why it isn't working? Surely there's either electricity or there's not? No circuits trip out or anything. I've replaced the bulb holder part (not sure what the technical name is) but that made no difference. Have tried different bulbs and again no difference.
Is the problem likely to be in the switch, don't think either of us have changed that part. Only other thing it could be is the wires/wiring I assume but I really don't want to have to take the board up in the loft to get at it again.
Any help appreciated.
