Wire t5 ballast light fitting

Hi
I'm replacing a tridonic ballast because I'm not getting output from 1 set of output terminals.

The wholesalers gave me a philips ballast,it is also for a double fleurescent fitting.

The Philips only has 6 output terminals compared to 8 on the tridonic

How do I wire the 8 wires from the bulbs to 6 terminals?

Regards

Follow the schematic on the new ballast not how it was previously connected. If you need help post a clear picture of the diagram on the new ballast. http://www.doityourself.com/forum/li...rt-images.html

I'll put the wiring in order so it's easier to follow.

Old ballast ------------> New ballast
16 ---------------------> 1
15 ---------------------> 2
14 ---------------------> 3
13 ---------------------> combine to 12
12 ---------------------> combine to 13
11 ---------------------> 4
10 ---------------------> 5
9 ----------------------> 6
