Ceiling fixtures in kitchen and living room have stopped working there is still power at the base of the socket and the bulbs work in other lamps. Both fixtures are new. What could the prblem be?

I've had fixtures where the center contact in the fixture's socket won't make contact with a "particular" bulb....Some bulbs/globes bottom out before making contact......not enough solder on the end of the bulb/base......with the power OFF adjust the contact (out) slightly
