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.

Hi slumes

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!

Thanks

Due to voltage fluctuation fumes come out from the projector what might have happened? and what would be the repairing cost?


you fried the power supply board and/or the ballast. you'll spend more on the labor than the part itself, and toshiba won't sell the parts. you'll have to send it in to them.

Won´t work when upside down..


Not sure if it is related by my MT200 would not power up at all eventually. Check the lamp cover micro switch is being depressed. I posted the comment below somewhere else. I hope this might help.
