Question about Toshiba TDP-T30U Multimedia Projector

Open Question

I actually have the TDP-S26, but looks similar

I have enjoyed my projector for a few years now, but when I turned it on the other day, the VGA input didn't recognize the signal from my computer! I tried different cables and different computers with no success. I plugged in my VCR into the composite input and it works just fine. Therefore, I know that the projector is working, it's just not "seeing" any signals that come in through the VGA! Any ideas??

    TDP-D1 (handmedown). My Toshiba laptop's f5 seems that it isn't programmed to do function-f5 to toggle between options. note in the case says use f8, which does not work either.

This is an SVGA projector with a max resolution of 800X600. Even though it can accept higher resolution signals, they are scaled down to 800X600 which causes degradation and artifacting of the displayed image. Obviously setting your computer's resolution to 800X600 will result in the best image the projector is capable of. Standard definition video (480i, 480p, S-Video or composite) signals should also display very well. High definition signals like 720p and 1080i get scaled down to 800X600 with the same issues as a higher resolution computer signal.

First off be sure that you plug into the input connector. As you look at the back of the projector it the VGA connector on the left. Also make sure you activate the VGA output of you computer (This mainly applies to laptops and secondary Video jacks on PCs).

I have connected my toshiba TDP-T9 to my laptop but I'm getting a "No Signal" error on screen. Could my VGA cord cause this?


Depending on your laptop, the internal splitter may be turned of. Usually the keystroke to turn it on is Fn F8. However it may be different on your laptop. Look at the function buttons, and the one with a screen looking thing on it is the one you press with your "Fn" key.

Cannot get connected to notebook pc


The most common problem is compatability of VGA signals.
Check the input settings and the notebook settings, they must be the same otherwise the projector will ignore the PC.
Hope that helps.

Colors look smeared on screen


If the colour wheel on your projector is out of sync, you will get incorrect colours.
If it is out of focus, focus the lens assembly, if misaligned colours, perform a re-convergence procedure at a fully equipped work shop with a qualified Toshiba engineer.

use a vga to vga cable. if your HP has a 13 pin serial conector. (looks like a trapezoid), use that.
If not you may need a dvi to vga cable.
if not, the projector may have two ports on the back - use computer in - not monitor in.

Lastly, try the video settings on the HP to see if its picking up the projector as a second monitor as a primary

Hi there

I would suggest you investigate it yourself first before dishing out that sort of amounts.

Check if the fans are running.

Most of the times the overheating of a Projector is as a result of a faulty fan.
