Hello there, i want help with a ballast fault,

I did wrong connections between L and N and my lamp isnt opening! Do you know if my ballast is burned or its only to change a burned part of it!?

Interchanging L and N should not affect the operation. Please state what you did wrong. Show a picture.

What is the lamp and what is it's rating?

Balast shows compatible with High pressure sodium or metal hallide 400w.

Also wondering if you have ever been around when one of these lamps implode?
Obviously not given your test set-up.
