The "out of production" Toshiba LCD Video Project TL P670 has great sound and the lamp (1300 lumens) is very weak. There is not video display, just sound. Does the lamp project the image or makes it bright so you can see it better or is there another part that needs replacing?

Re: No Video Display
The lamp should be blindingly bright. The light passes through a color LCD and through a series of lenses that will project the image onto a screen. If the light is "very weak", you won't have enough light to project onto the screen. Try using it in a pitch black room really close to the screen. If you can see ANY image being projected, then the unit is fine and all you'll need is the lamp.... usually a rather expensive item.

Supplied with 82V, 300W EXR lamp Projection Lamps Quartz-halogen 82 V projection lamps- Here is service manual link http://resources.kodak.com/support/pdf/en/manuals/slideProj/manual/ektagraphic_sm.pdf Several different Models all say EXR 300W As CORRECT Bulb : EXR, 300 W (35-hour lamp life at full lamp/medium-brightness) Sampling of other lamps: EXY (200 hours/less brightness) EXW (15 hours/maximum brightness) FHS (70 hours/medium brightness) Use combinations of lamp brightness, plus half- and full-lamp settings to approximate image brightness in multi-projector presentations. Lamp Tips • Projector operation on line voltages above 125 volts greatly reduces the lamp life. • Unplug the projector before changing the lamp. • Allow for unrestricted flow of air to the exhaust vent to prolong lamp life. • Gently wipe off any fingerprints with a soft cloth moistened with rubbing alcohol.
Most bulbs (regardless of vintage) can usually be found at a number of places: you can also try a retail chain called "Batteries PLUS Bulbs". The 3-letter ANSI code that identifies the lamp (can be found on the top of the old lamp, the base of the lamp or in the projector's manual) will make the search simpler. I just did a quick search on "Osram 64610" and found the code to be "HLX", 50 watt, 12 volt. Found a few on Amazon for under $4 each. Happy Hunting !!
I used to have a KODAK warranty dealer in New Jersey - - not sure how close to you, though...... Comet Camera & Video Repair in Cherry Hill, NJ 08002; 856-857-9250. I am unsure of the current status of this business, as Kodak stopped authorized repairs of slide projectors in 2007. Good Luck!!
Telex called those "CaraMate XXXX" (XXXX usually relating to model number ). The old ones projected on the internal screen. Newer models could project both on the internal screen and (by sliding a door on the top panel) on a projection screen for larger audiences. If it needs a lamp, check with: www.bulbman.com But you may have to search - - it's been a long time since they were manufactured! Good Luck !!
