you think so, i will do that tomorrow when there is light. i hope that is the problem. but why would a bad connection show a very faint but noticable dim light? i mean, if the connection was bad, it would be much dimmer, or flash on and off, or not even turn on! maybe this is just a quick sign of a bad connection. i will try to fix this tomorrow and post to see if it was the problem. thanks for your guys help.
ps> my dad thinks that the bulbs need time to warm up so that they would fully match. i did not think so since they were all cold from the start and they were all turned on evenly at the same time. though i did not leave it on for long, i do not think this was the problem.
