Question about Toshiba TDP-MT800 Multimedia Projector
I have seen this problem occur due to dust obstructing the flow of light(from the lamp) from reaching the panel and lens. The dust may render the filters ineffective. If you can just take the cover off and blow a can of compressed air, it will most likely resolve your problem.

This is usually caused by the colour filters in the unit "burning out". Filters in the projector are basically polarizing glass tinted to red, green and blue. In time the heat given of by the lamp "fades" the tint similar to sunlight fading fabric and other materials. The filters can be replaced but they can be very expensive, sometimes more than the projector is worth. One thing a lot of people do is buy a second hand unit that has a lamp that has come to the end of its life. You will find that people do not want to spend out on a new lamp which can also be very expensive so they put the projector up for sale on places like ebay. Usually projectors with no lamps sell quite cheaply and you may find you are able to just swap your lamp to that projector and end up with a fully working one. This is probably the cheapest option in your case.
I hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa
