Question about Toshiba TDP-TW90U Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Projector Lamp We purchased this projector brand new approx 3 years ago. Each year for the last two years we have had to replace the lamp. Each time we had to replace the lamp it was not anywhere near the life time that the lamp should have been replaced. This is used in a church, and is used approx 6-8 hours per week, is there any reason that the lamp should have to be replaced each and every year? Thanks

Hi there

Does your Projector go in for regular services ?

Have a technician check out the fans of this unit as well.

I would suggest you hook up a UPS to this Projector , because eventhough you might not have power dips or failures - the power supplied to appliances is not spike free and Projectors struggle to handle this well.

Dull image on projector


This is an old projector which was released in May 2005. Projector image degrades over time as the lamp dims, and other internal factors affect brightness. The original rating is 1600 lumens which is not bright compared to a modern projector.

You can check to status which may give you lamp information by pressing ENTER on remote or projector and going to HELP.

You may find that replacing the lamp helps, however older lamps are expensive and could replace the whole projector with new one of higher specification, complete with 3 year warranty if you spend double as much. A new lamp will not restore a projector to its new state either. Here's a link to the lamp (for the UK), it's over £200 + VAT + delivery, and that's not even for a genuien HP lamp

http://www.every-projector-lamp.co.uk/projector-lamps.php?&brand=HEWLETT+PACKARD&model=VP6310

As I say, you can get projectors with a better spec for as little as £372 + vat + delivery. This one is similar to yours, in that it is a 4x3 business projector. It has an XGA resolution. (Yours is VGA). It is 2000 lumen brightness and it has a 3 year warranty.

We have had this projector for 2 years. The projector will not turn on. It will turn green for 3 seconds then turn red and the lamp light turns red. I feel like the lamp could not already be worn? I was...


Whether or not you need to replace the lamp depends on how many hours of use it's had. You should be able to find the lamp time somewhere in the menu on the projector. Lamps for this projector are rated for 2000 hours (bright mode) or 3000 hours (Eco mode). In my experience they usually need changing at approx. 1500 to 1600 hours (bright mode). On Page 54 of the owners manual ( http://www.projectorcentral.com/pdf/projector_manual_4177.pdf ) are instructions for changing the lamp and zeroing the timer once it's changed. The lamp is Type number : DT00911. You should be able to get one from the manufacturer, the dealer you purchased the projector from, or specialty bulb and lamp stores. Be prepared. They aren't cheap, but it's better than having to buy a new projector.

When I tried to switch on my projector Acer H5360 it makes some noise then it beeps 3 times, blue led light flash 2 times and then red is steady by returns... Its brand new.. Any idea? Pls help


Ordinarily my first thought would be that the lamp is needing replacement. But if it's brand new, the lamp should be OK. Can you open the lamp compartment to see if it was broken during transit, or perhaps it's not fully seated properly. If it's a broken lamp, then I would contact the dealer you purchased it from, or contact the manufacturer directly to have it replaced. Also, is the noise loud and unusual, or just the normal sound of a projector coming on? If it's very loud, it could be the fan motor. Check that the fan is blowing. If the fan is the problem, the projector will shut down to protect itself from overheating. That, too, should be covered under the waranty.

Newer lamp not workering


I don't think that resetting the lamp is the problem if you have had it in there for a few months already. This lamp is rated for 2000 hours. That is abaout 1 year if you use it about 5 or 6 hours a day. If you don't use it that much you should get close to 2 years. There are a variety of factors that will reduce the life of your lamp. Do you let the fan continue to run after the projector is turned off? If not, you will see about half of the regular life. Are the filters clean? You can use a vacuum or rinse out foam filters to clean out the dirt and dust. The lamp needs good air circulation to cool evenly. Are the vents blocked or close to another componant? I'm pretty sure that you just need another lamp. If the lamp was purchased more then 4 months ago, you are probably out of warranty. You can save yourself some money if you buy the bare bulb and replace it in the old cartridge. It looks like the complete lamp module from Sharp runs around 295.00 but the usually have a bare bulb available. We supply a variety of brands fior each projector. You can contact me at 866-470-9877 or go to allprojectorlamps.com. Good luck!

Yamaha LPX 500 home cinema projector isn't lighting up


The reason for a red light is replacement of lamp or it is running too hot. Have you checked for proper venting, and cleaned them recently. The bulb usually lasts 2000 hours, so you may need another.
