I've dealt with DLP projectors and TVs for over two years and never had to send out a technician to calibrate after a bulb replacement unless of course the light engine has been jolted out of position. You may be looking for more than just a calibration, you may need repair service. Calibration was common with front/rear projection TV's when they used 3 lenses. DLP only uses one so other than focus and color adjustments, regular calibration shouldn't be necessary unless something is wrong inside.

Humming Noise coming from TV. Last about 10-15 seconds after I turn it off.

Fans are in the unit that cool the light bulb. The light gets very hot and the fans are needed. You might see if they need to be cleaned. Also note that if the unit is on and there is a power failure and the fans cant run, it could shorten the bulb life.

It could be that the bulb/fan unit has come unseated inside the TV. If you want to attempt this repair yourself this is a good reference:

You may need a new lamp unit but the same instructions would also allow you to install a new one.

How do you calibrated w52lcd after replacing bulb?

You should not have to do any calibration if all you did was put in a new bulb. You may want to reset the bulb timer in the menu if there is one.

Where can I find a Ballast for HP ID5220 DLP TV?

It looks as if you have to return it personally, and have them fix it. I saw nothing on the HP ID5220 DLP TV in the ballast lists. Sorry, man. Wish I could be of more help. Maybe someone else has a better site, or connections, that can help you. Your best bet is to get professional help with someone, like the company that manufactures the hardware.

The model you listed is a rear projection DLP set that uses a lamp and not a CRT. The part number for the lamp is 6912B22007A and is just the bulb itself. Meaning when your go to replace it you have to remove the old lamp from its housing and carefully install the new bulb in the old housing. You will want to use latex gloves so you don't leave fingerprints on the new lamp as it will shorten the life if it.

Lets statrt with the obvious, did the lamp that you replaced showed any type of damage(blown, broken) and when you put in the replacement lamp did you also replaced the lamp cover? or at least remembered to activate the door switch? these tvs have a starter board if everything checks out see if you get any type of activation sound whent you turn the power on, kind of a click sound and another thing to look for is the ventilation fan, is it activating when you push the power button?
