Question about Toshiba TDP-MT200 Multimedia Projector
Unit will not power up. The little "on" led is not even on.
I had exactly the same problem with the same projector. I took the whole thing apart last night, including all PCB boards the lot. After a lot of searching I found nothing untoward. Finally after figuring out how to put the thing back togther again, ready to accept defeat I noticed the micro-switch on the lamp replacement cover.
It turns out that the little plastic striker moulded to the lamp replacement cover was deformed/warped (possibly by heat?) and eventually it must have got to the point of not switching the micro-switch into the closed safe position. (I assume it there so that you can not power up the unit whilst the lamp cover is off, which would make sense) With the power effectively on and being very careful, I manually depressed the micro switch (with something plastic) the projector jumped into life! Of course I can not recommend anyone does this as it is probably not safe , but neither is having to pay a shed load for a service just for a **** plastic cover replacement. Long story short it fixed the issue. Hope this helps someone and saves them tearing their unit apart.

I'm pretty sure this is whats wrong with my projector also but i am just not sure where the plastic striker moulded to the lamp replacement cover was. Would anyone have a picture? If not I have can send a picture of where I think it is and if someone can point me in the correct direction is would be great!
