    The Sylvania bulb I installed in my parent's 70W fixture has died with no
    more then 3000 hrs. I put the bulb in my tester fixture at home and it
    doesn't start. There is a faint blue purple arc. I tried another Sylvania I
    had bought a year ago and never used and it too does not start now (in test
    fixture). Same faint arc from the igniter. Another bulb I have starts and
    runs fine.

    Is Sylvania having a quality problem with their HPS bulbs?

    Thanks, John
