    Nope but the flickering on mine was the start of a bulb going! Replaced the bulb and the flickering stopped. Unlikely for both to go at the exact same time though if they're both flickering.

    If they're that new, then as others have said - nothing to worry about and just the bulbs warming up!

    Just replaced my ballast with a new one from hids direct, cos my bulb was flickering all the time.

    New ballast cured the problem.
