ceiling fan, fan works but lights do not

I have 2 kids and one threw a toy that hit one of the 4 bulbs in our celing fan. Of course the bulb shattered but now the fixture won't work. I changed all the bulbs and while the fan function still works . . . the lights will not. Any idea where to start?

My best guess is that the toy loosened a connection inside the light fixture. You'll need to open it up and look. I'd do this with the circuit breaker turned off. Check the wire nuts inside that connect the fixture to the rest of the fan. If those are tight and it still doesn't work, it's time for a repair (or replacement) of the fixture.
