Question about Mitsubishi WD-52627 52" Television

Ballast Assembly Circuit Board

This is related to another post but I have more specific information now. I have Mitsubishi WD-52627 DLP. It makes a buzzing/crackling sound when turned on and there is no picture. The lamp is fine. Yankeegurl pointed me to the ballast assembly in the area of the noise. (Thanks Yankeegurl!) I looked back there and sure enough I could see what looked like sparking/glowing that coincided with the buzzing. I can see the part on the circuit board that has the problem. I have the service manual and I opened up the tv and took a picture of the board. The part with the problem is circled. Anyway, I called Mits and they told me they would not sell me a new board, they would only sell to an authorized service center. They said the board would be just shy of $400. Does anyone know if there is a service center for replacing parts on these circuit boards rather than just replacing the entire board. If I can have the part replaced for even half of what the board would cost I would probably go that route. I am not having any luck finding a place but I thought someone here would know. Just want to make sure I have explored all options.
Thanks experts!!

If that is sparking the ballast is ok. Change the bulb although it looks ok it is not firing up. also make sure the bulb is plugged securely in its socket.

Bulb goes out after a few minutes

The ballast for the bulb is the culprit. That is the circuit board directly wired to the bulb. You can get a replacement on line at:

You're asking the way to access the ballast board, I assumes and posts this solution. You have to disassemble the set. If you wish to get more details, check this site. Pull up older posts there. Check the site with patience, as it has over 2250 posts now. All are related to electronic equipment repair help. Search the site by 'Timeslide' option. It will make search easy. Or, type in the brand name to your device into its search box, and press "Enter" Disassembley procedure is given in detail with illustrations.

Mitsubishi wd-52627 dlp hdtv doesn't appaer as

I have seen alot of the Mitsubishi DLPs to get very dim and the colors appear dull and the cause was almost always caused by the small front mirror needing to be cleaned due to a dust build up. If you need assistance with how to access the mirror on that model send me a email and I will send you info on how to access the mirror. The file is too large to post here.

Where is the ballast board on a Mits. WD-52627

In order to reach ballast you have to remove optical block. Ballast is usually covered with metal shield. It's located on the right hand side of optical block (if to look from the back of the TV). and it have two black thick short wires that connected to the lamp cartridge socket.
