    I have the same symptoms with my projector. It has low lamp hours & is used occationally. Unit is ceiling mounted - no jarring, etc. I don't think it is the lamp... no hi-temp warning, maybe a bad thermal switch?

    My projector is ceiling mounted and the yellow light blinks on and off. When it does come on the picture is blurred then bright. Is the lamp going out?

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.

Most probably the lamp is dead already.

Sounds like you have the wrong bulb or your

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.

Same problem as below.

I have the same projector, and had the SAME problem.
After unplugging and taking on a trip it didn't 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!

Standby light for toshiba

probably power supply or ballast (starts the lamp)

either would be $600.00 or so to repair, probably costs more than the projector is worth.

Hi j cwff

Ok this would be a faulty lamp if you can spot bubbles or vein like looking marks on it in either black or white.

I'm sure you'll solve this by just replacing the lamp and resetting the lamp timer.
