Looks like that's the back of the Ballast board. That is the Ballast trying to fire the lamp. For some ballast boards it is normal to see a spark on the board like that, means that the Ballast is producing the high voltage to ignite the lamp. I don't know if that is true here in your case for your model.
Has the lamp ever been replaced?
Where did you get the lamp and how much did it cost?
What is the actual symptom with the lamp installed?
Do you see the lamp trying to fire?
