I plugged in my toshiba DLP projector one day and I heard a pop

I plugged in my Toshiba DLP projector one day and I heard a small pop. A light amount of smoke shot out from the projector interior. It appeared to be a surge on the system. Any chance of fixing? or should I forget about it.

Sounds like a blown capacitor...they age...leak..and bulge..
and then blow out...
Check (visually) all the capacitors on your power supply board...
if they are fat, bulging or leaking...they should be replaced.

What is going on my toshiba dlp projector image is with lot of sand grains


Sounds like either a bad DLP chip, or dirty optics. If the "sand grains" seem to "multiply< then you DO have a bad dlp chip, some mirrors are "sticking".

The color went out on my Toshiba TDP-T45 projector. Watching the projector and heard sound and the color went away. What is wrong?


Color wheel failed. Clean the glass pieces out loose in the unit and replace the color wheel assy with Toshiba part no: 23125963. No soldering is required, just a no. 2 phillips screwdriver and and a set of jeweler's phillips screwdrivers like Radio Shack has.

I heard a pop and now the projector only shows black and white.


The color wheel has failed in youtr projector. There are 4 pieces of glass in the color wheel which fit togeter in a "pie" formation and they are red, blue, yellow & clear. This wheel is spun by a motor. The glass is glued to the motor's hub, and, when it fails the glass segments are thown off the hub. This gives you a B&W picture because all of the light is allowed to shine through the optics all of the time. Replace the color wheel with Toshiba part no: 23125963. It will be about $65. No soldering is involved, just use care with the ribbon cable to the motor. You will need a no. 2 phillips screwdriver and a set of jeweles screwdrivers to do this.

Projector Lamps for the Toshiba TDP-MT8 DLP


Have you contacted Toshiba? They will sell you a new fan. It is possible the power supply has a problem. Bulbs usually have a 90 day warranty. Contact where you bought the bulb. Prices are dropping rapidly for new projectors. Yoiu can buy a new oen for under 500.00.
