It turns out that i fixed this issue, I opened up my projector and took a look at the board to make sure that there is nothing wrong. It turns out that the projector needed a good cleaning. Just use caned air to clean out the projector make sure that all the vents are clear and not blocked. (note: do not spray the caned air while the bulb is hot, if you do this the bulb can cause the pressurized air to temporary flame up, Please make sure the projector has had at least 30 minutes to cool off) While the board is off press the power button and the projector should power up. Replace the covering, and this projector will work.

When you plug in your system with the power cable and turn the toggle switch (in the back) do you see the red stand by light?

The red and yellow light comes from 1 bulb and the green and blu light comes from another..

If you have the YLOD and your yellow/red light is out, you will only see the green light.

I am really interested in your problem.

Do this to check your status: If you can do this function below but not any other, chances are, you do have the YLOD. It can be fixed.

Power off the unit using the toggle switch on the back. Hold down the 'eject' button and turn the toggle switch back from off to on. This will run a fan test and should eject your disc. Remember, this will only work on the 20, 40g models. Not the backwards compatible units with the 4 usb port holes and the memory card slots.

There are two issues here. The red and green wires are not standard, so rather than assume, you'll have to confirm where they go on the ceiling fixture by dropping that fixture enough to examine it. The other issue is that you have apparently bought two four-way switches - they will work, but you may have to make a change after you initially wire it up.
i'll describe how to wire this, but before you wire it this way you MUST confirm my assumption that at the ceiling fixture the red wire is connected to a black flexible wire (either for the fan or for the light) and the green wire is connected to a white flexible wire (either for the fan or for the light).
Now back to the switch box. .
You need to determine which of the black/white/ground wire sets is coming from the breaker. If this isn't obvious visually, you can check this by temporarily wiring a light to one set, have somebody turn the breaker on then off. If it lights, you got it. If it doesn't light, its the other one, but repeat the test on the other one to be sure.
Now the switches. You will only use two terminals on each switch. On each switch you will use one of the top terminals and one of the bottom terminals. Use the two terminals on the same side of the switches. (Later, if you find that your switch operates upside-down, where up is off and down is on - then you can swap a wire so that you are using two terminals that are on opposite corners of the switch.)
Connect the black wire coming from the breaker to switch 1. You also need to add a jumper wire from that terminal to the corresponding terminal on switch 2.
Connect the other black wire to the other terminal on switch 1. Connect the red wire to the other terminal on switch 2. Connect the two bare ground wires to the grounding lugs on the two switches.
The other three wires are white, white, and green. These are the neutrals and should all be connected together.

Check the switch. It sounds like it has seen better days. Also check the wires on the back of the switch to see if they are shorting out. The problem is at the switch area. Good luck.
