Question about Toshiba TDP-S20U Multimedia Projector

2 Answers

Bulb light projects red

At first there was no blue at all, now the entire screen is red. The light coming from the bulb appears red. Not sufficient time on the bulb to normally warrant replacement.

    Thanks for your comment....I'll see about getting it repaired. At least I didn't buy the bulb and then find out it wasn't the trouble.

Infact a color wheel issue. your mainboard is likely ok. these units use a spinning wheel with colored lenses to reproduce color. yours is bad.

Hi there

I guarantee you 100% that this not a bulb problem but rather a Mainboard failure.

This can unfortunately only be resolved by having it repaired or replaced.

And it is expensive incase you were wondering.

Why will my mitsubishi lvp x300 projector only project a blue screen when I turn it on?


Blue is probably the default "no signal" screen. It means that the projector is getting no signal.

I have two issues with the pb8220 1. How do you reset the bulb hrs when a new bulb is installed? 2. Projects for about 10 seconds then goes black. The red bulb light comes on when the screen goes...


Reset the lamp hours as follows.
Press the Exit button on the projector for 3 seconds to display the total used lamp time. Press the MENU button on the projector during the lamp hour message. An adjustment message will appear. Press left or right arrow to reset lamp hours or press EXIT to leave.

After changing the bulb image will not come on and solid orange light appears


Other then POWER BUTTON light there are three lights more
1. lamp indicator
2. temperature indicator
3. computer input
witch one light is flashing RED or illuminated RED with POWER BUTTON orange light.
If LAMP INDICATOR light is illuminated RED than lamp runtime has reached 1800 hours. but projector still working.
If LAMP INDICATOR light flashing RED than lamp circuit failure, or abnormal function or lamp unit is damaged. In this case projector doing the same behave just like your projector.
if TEMPERATURE indicator illuminating RED the projector still projecting and if flashing RED than turned of itself

I,ve got a red spot in the screen i replaced the bulp but stil have the problem


it is most likely a burned polarizing filter. There is a polarizing filter on the blue light channel and another on the red channel. When black, or other dark colours are displayed, the red polarizing filter is supposed to block ALL of the red light being projecter. If the filter is burned, some light slips through and creates a red tinge on the projected image. If the red tinge only appears on dark images, but is absent when the images is completely white, a damaged filter is likely the problem.

Seems its hard to buy them. Best bet is probably buying a broken projector from ebay and stealing the filters out of it.

Hitachi projector model CP X260 projects yellow spot on screen


This is probably the polarizing filter. It will need to be replaced. It should not cost very much to fix.

Two problems, first the menu appears to be burned into the projection, the bulb has less than 100 hours. Second when black is supposed to be projected it projects blue?


You have a bad lcd, you would probabaly have some blue lite leakage also. Any lcd projector should not be left on the same image for long periods, it wears out the pixels that control the lite thru. The blue lcd is usually the culprit.

My projector won't come on.


I answered this question many times. This is caused by a failed color wheel sensor. It faile gradually, first the lamp flickers, sometimes go dim for no good reason. Finally the lamp will not strike and you will get two red warning lights. I am factory trained and I stock the redesigned senor.
