Question about Toshiba TDP-MT500 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Blinking red lamp light

What does the Blinking red lamp light mean? Also, the projector is loud. The manual said on rare occasions the color wheel spins at a high rate of speed causing a metal scraping sound. Is there any way to fix this?

    Thank You.
    You are 100% correct. Toshiba tech support was pretty much worthless. There's no reason why it should be this loud. I did bother them with the problem....believe me!

Blinking red light normally only occurs when lamp needs replacing. one thing to try other than replacing the lamp is resetting the lamp used hours timer (page 33), and if this solves the flashing light you may get some more hours out of your bulb http://tacpservice.toshiba.com/ConsumerProductSupport/Manuals/projectors/MT500.pdf The wheel noise is supposed to be normal and an element of the design - don't think they thought that one through too well. Saying that, if it is all the time and painfully loud then something (possibly the bearing or the housing that the bearing sits in) needs bending back or replacing - toshiba do not suggest any long term solution to the problem at all. Hope this helps please bother toshiba about this, and it may help stop them selling unfinished designs. We must all fight for a better future etc. etc. etc. ;) Hope this helps :)

I own a Samsung HL-R5067W 50'' DLP. Set is about 3 years old. Recently I heard a loud pop while viewing, picture distorted, but never went blank. I turned set off. When turned on again a loud whining noise...


Check your color wheel. There is a DIY guide for replacing the color wheel. Mine did the same thing yours is and my color wheel was all busted up. Unfortunately after replacing the color wheel my set continues to do the same thing, but this could mean I need to replace the ballast as well.

I turn on the 4805,green led blinks & bulb does not come on?


After a few minuets does the green blinking light turn to a red blinking light?

If so the problem is the lamp did not strike.Either the lamp has failed (most likely) or there is a problem with the power supply (less likely)

Infocus 4805 blinking red light problem


My first questions is:

Is this the first lamp you have placed into your Infocus pj? If not, did you reset the hours when you did it last time? Otherwise that can also confuse the projectors internal system thinking there is NOT a new lamp in there and there for make it stop working once the clock hours are expired and over the 3000-6000 suggested hour life.

Let me know so I can help trouble shoot other possible problems.
