The good news is that they are easy to get. Pat @ SW-Fantaseas has them in stock, or search DIY fluorescent and you should find about 10 online retailers that sell them. Not too spendy either ($40-$50).

 

Bad news is that you will have to do some wiring, but it's pretty simple. Just make a diagram, or take a photo of how the old one is wired.

 

Have you checked all connections? Is the plug lamp cord plug on the ballast a Molex plug? Or is it the hard rubber 4 pin config?

It's a four plug. Black. When I find my camera (kids) then I will take a picture.

Sometimes those 4 pin plugs get worn out over time, but you already addressed that info. I'm assuming that you have verified that the plug is in good condition. ie: you unplugged both plugs and plugged into different receptacles on the ballast, and the bulb fires.

 

If you need help, I could possibly rewire it for you.
