Electrical Question from John about Light Switch Wiring

Received from a Homeowner in Mandurah, W.A.

Question: I changed light bulb in bedroom five light ceiling fixture with an energy efficient bulb (the switch is on a dimmer) and as soon as turned on switch the lights stopped working. All other electrical switches and lights around are still working. Is there some sort of trip in the ceiling above the light that I can reset.
