Xenon ballast testing

I have asked a few questions on the xenon headlights and after some ellimination process and talking to people i now need to test the ballasts.
The problem with the lights is there lumin output. They start up fine and run flicker free but they are dull even compaired to halegon lights let alone other xenons. The near side is duller than the offside.
What i what to know is there any way i can test the ballasts to see if they are operating correctly once started with out the expenise of buying a new ballast.
