Default Cathodes HELP

I purchased 4 green cathodes for my PC (2 per inverter) and they just wouldn't light up. So I then ordered 4 more (2 per inverter), this time from ebuyer and they still won't light up. I have tried removing the switch aswell and that didnt help. I cn't believe that all 8 cathodes are broken and I have even tried them in a different pc. Is there something I could be doing wrong? Thanks.

I'm no expert in this stuff, but did it come with instructions or some type of box that would contain any information on it?
Try reading it thoroughly.

The only instructions are a small diagram on the back of the inverter. It shows a molex being connected (which i have done), the switch (which is turned on), and the two cathodes being plugged in to the other end of the inverter (which I have done). I spoke to one of my mates who has cathodes in his PC and he can't understand this either.

Try get some other cathodes that work like go borrow them off someone you know and put them in your system.

If they work, ask if that guy can put them in your system.
