Electricians: Chandelier went out but it's getting current

Couple of months ago our family room chandelier went out cold turkey. I'm just now getting time to get to it.

I originally thought it was the switch as I bought one of those non contact voltmeters and it went crazy at t he chandelier. Took off the dimmer and it went crazy inside of the switch box also.

Replaced the switch at Lowes and NOTHING. It still went crazy at the chandelier.

Thought, "that's odd." replaced one bulb and nothing. Tried the same bulb in another room's chandelier and it worked. Any ideas? I'm hurting here for suggestions.

I'm just kidding about that. Let him zap himself one time. He will call. He never leaves me in the house alone with his wife any more though.

Heh. I call he and his family the black Duggars. They don't even know what that means but his old lady pops out 2 kids per calendar year. I don't know how they do it.

Actually... I didn't think you did electric work Phil.
Would love to get this taken care of after work tomorrow if you can do it.

an outside chance - if it is on a dimmer and you are using neon-type bulbs - will not work. Obvious, i know...

if you're ever in doubt at least use the back of your hand to touch so your reaction doesn't grab the wire, you'll just jump off it. though i suppose if you want to use that method on a 477 3 phase, you might deserve what you get.

Yeah, learned my lesson REAL quick. I went back to using my old multimeter and won't touch a wire until I check for volts just to make sure
