Question about Toshiba TLP 261 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Projector lamp wil not turn on.

Projector was working fine, then all of a sudden, the light turned off. I figured it was a bulb failure. I bought a new one ($350). It did not fix the problem. I tried the bulb in another borrowed projector, all of the bulbs work in the borrowed projector, even the original one. I suspect it is the HV power supply for the lamp (probably the flyback transformer). What do you think? Where can I get this fixed, or buy another one? The only supplier I could find won't sell to me as an individual and he wants $261. Is there a bone yard available for old Toshiba LCD projectors?

Both the LAMP/COVER and FAN/TEMP indicator lights come on, not blinking


with both lights solid. according to the manual all it says is (there is an electrical failure inside the unit, please take to an authorized servicer). if you are able to do this yourself you will need the schematics and a voltmeter to start testing your voltages. your lamp is fine so dont waste your money replacing that anymore. if you would like the service manual send me an email to fixya@markservicepro.com.

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

Problems with Projector Panasonic PT-L501XU after change the lamp


was this bought new or second hand?
There is a "Lamp Time" setting that can be accessd using your remote control, check this setting.
Look on page 40 and after that of your manual about ambient temperature bulb failure.

By powering off or hittign the reset button the bulb should stay on IF the projector is gettign a signal from a device to show an image. If the projector is not hooked up to a device, laptop, TV, etc. the bulb may turn off to save hours of operation.

My VPL-VW50 suddenly stopped working a couple months ago. It turned on, the fans started, then it would stop and a red light began blinking three times. I looked up the code and found that it needed a new...


fisrt, did you reset the lamp timer? if the projector turns on again, go into the menu settings and reset the lamp timer. 3 flashes also mean that the lamp is too hot. let the projector go through it's cooldown mode and shutdown before you unplug it. remove the filter case and vacuum or blow the dust out of the filter. you can also blow the dust out of the projector (if any) with canned air. lastly, be careful where you buy lamps from. you get what you pay for. cheaper isn't always better.
