I have two tube lights in my kitchen, have replaced both the tube lights not long ago, one of them isn't coming on now. Don't think it could have blown that quickly. I thought it could be the starter, but then wouldnt both of them not come on? I don't know anything about d.i.y. as you can tell :(

I used to have the same in my kitchen, and had the same problem. Might just be a build ip of grease on the contacts (casing). Make sure the power is off, then give them a good wipe. Better still, take off the casing (usually just two screws holding it in place, and remove any dust, grease and, as I found, cobweb. It isn't the starter if one comes on.
