Customer Question

i have a mitsubishi wd-62526 with an error code 34. Does not turn on, lamp indicator comes on. replaced bulb. I replaced the capacitors on the pwb board. I do have 340v at lamp ballast. Could it be a bad ballast? If so where can i purchase one?

Hi!

 

That's probably the next thing to try, as the service manual says a 34 code is a "Lamp Irregularity."

 

As far as I know, though, the only place to get a ballast is from Mitsubishi, and they can be fussy about selling repair parts like boards to customers. You might try calling their parts department at(NNN) NNN-NNNNand see what kind of mood they're in. Sometimes they will, with the stipulation that there is absolutely no warranty on the part.

 

Good luck, thanks for using JustAnswer!
