    Hi everyone,
    Yesterday my sister switched on the bedroom light and all the lights o the top floor went out! there are six lights in total and none of them work at the moment. The lights on the bottom floor work and all the plug sockets on both floor's work fine too.
    I know next to nothing about electrics so am at a loss what to do!:cool: I changed the bulb of the bedroom light to see if that made a difference but no luck.
    I dont know if there is an easy fix I can do myself or if I should call the electrician?
    Thank you for your help in advance!

    Hi mate.
    As above. See if it has tripped a circuit breaker in her consumer unit.

    The odd one out with B6 probably written on it !
    ( Facing other way to rest )
    If there was a bang that bulb you swapped - was guilty
    (and a bit cheap-maybe )

    Try bulb taken out in a "Table Lamp" plugged into a socket , (not down stairs) if bulb is good ,you will need help .
    Did you find trip switches =B6 , or OLD fuses?

    Does your fuse box have a row of little switches on it ?, If it does then make sure they all face the same way.
    If it doesn't have small switches, but the older fuse holders then you'd be best calling an Electrician.

    Can't argue with you there Spoon, I'd love to go for a pint with Tel & Pete.
    Think they're both brilliant, can you imagine working with Tel though ? He'd have us rolling with laughter.

    I'd love to work with SparkyChick as well though, think she'd be great to have a laugh but get the job cracked out at the same time.
