The ballast is no longer available & no replacement

I have a 2 bulb light fixture with Resi-tronic flourescent lamp electronic ballast 2003062 have .85A with a yellow, white & black wire coming out of one side & 2 blue,2 red, a brown and a gray wire coming out of the other side. The replacement ballast that I am told will work have completely different wire arrangements & I don't see how the wiring can be modified to work. Can you please provide an appropriate replacement ballast or a description of how to wire a different type ballast? Thank you.

arch, according to your images, this is a standard T8 2 lamp ballast. Something like this or this one should work. Any major hardware store should also carry it. Yes, the wiring will slightly change. To show you how to connect the new balance, you will have to also give us a few pictures of the light with the current wires.

sorry it's taken so long but i don't know h ow to load pictures of the ballast I have on this site. Can you please let me know how to do that or provide an email address so I can send it to you to find out how the new ballast needs to be wired? Since this is a standard ballast, I don't know why it has so many more wires but are you saying that the wiring doesn't matter as long as it's a T8 2 lamp ballast? The amps don't need to match? Thanks.

The amps matter but most of the T8 ballast will be pretty close to the original. You can wire a new ballast in for as long as it is a T8 that can drive two F32T8 bulbs. to attach an image, use this guide Adding images to an existing question For my email address you just click on my Avatar
