From the booklet that comes with the replacement lamp:

1 While holding down the "MENU" and "ON/STANDBY" buttons simultaneously.

2. Insert the power cord

Not great English, but I tried this yesterday and it works.

I have the same projector, and had the SAME problem.
After unplugging and taking on a trip it didn't work...it just lit up for 2 secs, and then shut off....

LEAVE it plugged in for as long as it takes for the light to stop blinking, and then it should start up on its own, or if you press the on/standby buton.
Be patient, hope this works for you too!

I have a BenQ PB 6210. After switching it on, it first displays that the lamp has run 2001 hours and should be replaced. After this window disappears, it takes maybe 2 seconds and the projector shuts...


Hi cholthusen,

Please be informed that the average lifespan of a projector's lamp is around 2000 hours. The light bulb is almost certainly the problem. The best solution would be to change the bulb. The easiest way to do that is to change the lamp assembly (fresh bulb is in the new assembly). You may also try resetting the unit. Turn the unit off, then physically remove the power cord. wait for about 10-15 seconds then start it back again. If this did not work, please replace the lamp.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Will not coming on ,standby light is orange temp and lamp light not on


hi,
Just try to reset the lamp hour of your projector. For resetting the projector do the following.

While simultaneously holding down MENU/HELP, ENTER and Down arrow button on the projector, Press STANDBY/ON on the projector.
Remember one thing lamp hour reset is recommended only after the lamp replaced. Before going to buy a new lamp just reset the lamp hour and confirm that the projector doesn't have any other problem.

If these doesn't help then check the lamp of you projector chances for lamp became faulty.
ok

the lamp units should be properly aligned with the 2 very tiny switches
between them. If not lamp led will blink.
If lamp led is continuously on, lamp timer has to be reset, according instructions that come with new units.
Original lamp modules are AH-45001 and AH-45002, two different
units needen for 1 projector, reset procedure is different for each lamp !!

If you haven't tried it already, unplug the unit, hold down the power button for 15 seconds, release, then wait about a half hour and try plugging the machine in and powering up again. This may reset the memory and enable your projector to start up normally.

LP 240 stopped working. No lights, no fans, nothing.


Please describe the status of the LED indicator. No LED would indicate a failure of the power supply. I can help you with that.
Flashing red would indicate a fan/lamp problem. Some lamps fail prematurely before the lamp hours are up.
If it is the power supply, no lights at all, I can get you running again. These units have fragile power supplies that can burn out with the slightest power surge. A UPS goes a long way to save future headaches.

Wil not turn on


Either your lamp is burned out or you had it unplugged for a while.
If you have had it unplugged for a while, plug it in, make sure the yellow power light is on, then wait for about an hour. Don't repeatly try to turn it on in the meantime. After about an hour or two plugged in,,,,, it should power up. Then reset your lamp timer through the menu.

Toshiba TDP S8 projector shuts down suddenly


The reason why the projector is shutting off is so the lamp doesn't explode. It's more of a safety feature on the projector, you can reset the lamp and it might work for another 500hours. If the picture is still pretty bright I can get you the reset procedure, but be warn that when the lamp does eventually blow it could shatter the glass inside, so be careful, it shouldn't hurt the unit.
