Why does it turn on and stay on for a few minutes then turn off with the bulb light flashing?

Bulb has gone bad, and will require a new one. Or check all the fans of the projector and make sure all are running accordingly and nothing is hindering them.

Sanyo pcl-xu50 flashing red power light when i turn on my projector the light goes green it powers up for about 20 seconds then the power light changes to a red flashing one for about 10 seconds then back...

Projectors shut off when they overheat. They overheat when air does not move through the projector cooling it. This happens when the fans are not working or air filters/vents are not working.
Check to see whether the fans are working. If they are working, open the cover and see whether air filters/vents are covered with dust. If so clean them.

New bulb worked for a short trail run now wont light up. flashing green led colour wheel is turning on start up

when you changed the lamp, did you blow the dust out of the projector? if the screen on the side of the lamp is blocked (i.e. with dust), the lamp will blow quickly. if the projector were to overheat, by the fans not running or blocked vents, everything would shut down and the led would blink red.

Toshiba TDP SC25 projector

The manual says it might be because the power went out when it was on. Just a note here, as projectors age they become more sensitive to power outages. When not in use turn off completely if you can. They have an on/off button.

Otherwise not sure but think you may need to replace the fan. Try cleaning it first but gently.

sounds like what 80% of the projectors on this page are seeing... bad power supply or lamp ballast.

Projector starts then shuts down with status light flashing

Possibly the power supply could be bad or also known as the ballast. But keep in mind that there is a little switch for safety reasons near the cover you are taking off to change the lamp that could not be reactivated causing you the same symptom as a bad lamp. Make sure the switch is closed. than recheck. OR possibly you could have received a bad lamp. I have seen that happen on occasion. Keep me posted. Thanks Jay
