Pendant lights not working

last month

I've replaced two pendant lights and neither are working. The new fixtures have a white wire, one black wire and a ground wire. The electrical box has two red wires. The previous fixtures worked using the two red wires (previous fixtures did not have a ground wire). I've installed the new fixtures attaching to the two red wires and the ground wire to the bracket. A voltage detector indicates there is power in the socket of the light fixtures. I've pulled out the tab in the socket to ensure contact with the bulb but still no luck. The light switch is not a dimmer. Any idea why the lights are not working?
