Question about Toshiba TDP-S8 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Two or more black bands appear

When I switch on the Toshiba TDP-S8 two or more black lines appear and as it runs they either grow in width or decrease or sometimes disappear and appear again. This also happens when there is no external input, just the blue default startup screen. It started with the entire screen blacking out but now it has reduced to two lines. The bulb and projector is very new with just about 150 hours of running.

Re: Two or more black bands appear

Try resetting all parameters to factory settings. Do it once and then set your personal settings. Then, reset to factory defaults again.

Toshiba's s8. Designed to deliver stunning images in breathtaking XXL format, the TDP-S8 features 2000:1 contrast, the latest DLP technology for brilliant color and sharpness, and 2000 ANSI lumens brightness for top performance. The product retailed for close to two thousand dollars. Due to problems production was discontinued. If it works for you then you got a good deal. Replacement parts are easily available on for reasonable prices.

TDP-S8 only run for 20 sec.

Possible filter problem or sensor related to over heat. Might also be a bad bulb or worn out bulb.
Leaning more towards bulb replacement.

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.
