    so i've got some of those energy saver Fluorescent lamp screw in type bulbs

    well, last night i was going to sleep and had the hallway light turned off, and the bulb started flashing...
    and it kept flashing at what seemed to be a regular interval

    has anyone seen this happen before? and does anyone know why it would do that?

    i had the bulb in about 6 months ago and it did the flashing so i took it out and put a regular bulb in...
    the regular bulb popped so i put the fluorescent one back in and it was fine up until last night

    any ideas?
    it looks like a camera flash every 10-20 seconds

    It's either a logic to flash an error code, or it's a starter discharging. But it shouldn't, because power is off to the circuit.
