I don't have a ballast for flourescent.

If you can't borrow a ballast, Home Depot sells T8 ballasts for cheap. Just hook up the wires and if that's not the problem take it back for a refund.

Probably not available at HD then. If you know an electrician or are handy with a volt meter you could get it tested.
