Question about Toshiba TDP P5 Multimedia Projector
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.

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.

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!

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.

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!
