Toshiba TDP-P5 shuts down everytime I press "Power"

I have a Toshiba TDP-P5 and when I connect it to the power cable the light turns orange. However as soon as I press the Power button it the light turns green for a fraction of a second, I can hear the fan starting up and then it just shuts down.

SOURCE: Toshiba TDP S8 projector shuts down suddenly

The reason why the projector is shutting off is so the lamp doesn't explode. It's more of a safety feature on the projector, you can reset the lamp and it might work for another 500hours. If the picture is still pretty bright I can get you the reset procedure, but be warn that when the lamp does eventually blow it could shatter the glass inside, so be careful, it shouldn't hurt the unit.

SOURCE: Toshiba TDP-S8 Projector Inoperative

I have the same projector, and had the SAME problem.
After unplugging and taking on a trip it didn't work...it just lit up for 2 secs, and then shut off....

LEAVE it plugged in for as long as it takes for the light to stop blinking, and then it should start up on its own, or if you press the on/standby buton.
Be patient, hope this works for you too!

SOURCE: No Power to My Toshiba TDP-S8

Thank you very much for the precise answer!
Had the same fault but repaired mine.
As I only had a 1000u/16V at hand, I put it in instead the swollen 3300u/10V. It works as well.
BTW this cap was extremely hard to desolder, as its holes are very tight in the PCB.
some addition, how to take it apart: the only screw at the center of the bottom is obviously needs to be taken out, then only the plastic holds it in one piece. I used two credit cards (well, not credit cards, but magnetic hotel keys, but looks the same) to insert between the upper and lower chassis to separate them. The capacitor in question was on the bottom board, which has the power connector.

SOURCE: Projector power problem

I HAVE THE EASY FIX!
I had this same problem & almost threw it away!
If you have had it unplugged for a while just plug it in & make sure the yellow power light is on, then leave it plugged in for about an hour or two. Do not try to turn on before at least an hour, then it can easily be turned on. Make sure you reset the lamp timer option. There & you thought it would be difficult & expensive!

Check the color wheel if it is not turning when you hit the power button (light should flash) you have 1 or 2 loose caps on the bottom of the main board behind the audio input try to resolder them with low heat iron these are smt caps and very hard work on if you have not worked on this kind of job take it to a expert
good luck! ps make sure you glue them down
if you do get them to work to prevent a reocurance.
OR you have a power supply issue which
should be a swolen 3300 mf 10 volt cap
in the main power supply.

Toshiba Projector won't turn on!!!


I had the same. Try to press the "input" and "menue" buttons and plug in the power cable. No control light should be active after that. Press the "power" button and it should work.
