Projector Lamp doesn't turn on

When I turn on the projector, the power light is yellow as usual. But when I hit the "on/standby" softkey, the power light goes on green for 2 seconds then goes back to steady yellow, and the status light blinks red twice every 2 seconds. The lamp never seems to come on. The projector has been used maybe a 200 hours. I tried reseating the lamp. Any suggestions? Thank you.

try pressing and holding the enter button on the projector for about 30 seconds - this resets it. It worked for me!!

SOURCE: Blinking status light

Replacing the lamp with an old one was helpful for me. Good news: the projector itself not faulty. Bad news: I have two projectors with the same issue at the same time (the lamps were replaced also at the same time) after only 400 hours of running.

Hi Craig,

If you get no lamp light at all coming from the main projection lens then odds are the lamp ballast or power supply has failed. These can usually be repaired & is a common fault among the VT series projectors. If one of the fans are stuck the unit normally still lights up for a few seconds up to 20 seconds or more until the extra heat trips the safety shutoff & shuts down the projector.

How do I reset the lamp timer to '0' hours when I replace the bulb?

Make sure the main power switch is OFF. Hold the "ON", "MENU", and "INPUT" buttons at the same time and turn the main power switch on. Keep them held until the yellow power standby light comes on, then let go.

Light of projector is not working

Try to turn off your projector and open it again after 10 minutes. The lamp may be malfunctioning due to overheat. This usually happens when your projector was not turned off properly. The fans inside the projector should slowly cool the lamp inside when turning it off properly causing the projector to be in a standby mode for a couple of minutes before you can completely unplug it.

What does it mean when that blinking green light turns to orange one in lp 350?

This would be "Standby"
When you press standby, the display and audio turn off and a blank screen is displayed for 15 minutes.
You can change the amount of time the projector stays in standby mode; see “Standby Time” on page 27 for details.
The LED lights orange while the projector is in standby.
• If you press standby again within 15 minutes, the projector returns to normal operations immediately. The LED changes from orange to green.
• If you press standby again after 15 minutes, there is about a 60 second delay before the lamp turns back on. The LED flashes green while the lamp is re-lighting.
• If you don’t press standby again, the lamp turns off after 15 minutes. The LED lights orange while the projector is in standby.

Standby light for toshiba

probably power supply or ballast (starts the lamp)

either would be $600.00 or so to repair, probably costs more than the projector is worth.
