Question about Toshiba TDP-S8 Multimedia Projector
There was a time my projector refused to shut off...the screen displayed a blank blue wall with a big red "X" mark on the left corner...I had to pull the plug just to shut it off...I know it's not a good practice but there's nothing I can do to shut it down...HELP!
doesn"t shot off

There is a "mute" screen which will hide the picture on your projector. If thats not the case there seems to be a problem with the remotes/controls fo rthis projector, as my functions do not workcorrectly all the time.
Lastly, the red x in the upper corner meant that you had no signal going to the projector, and would have no effect on shutting down.
Hope this helps

'No signal' and 'unsupported signal' messages mean 1 of 2 things, either the VGA output is off(laptop) or the display resolution is set too high(laptop and desktop). Assuming the VGA cable you are using is good, try this:
Desktop: hook the computer back up too your computer monitor & set the computer to the basic VGA resolution. For windows XP, right click a blank area on the desktop, click 'properties' on the dropdown menu, click settings. Write down the numbers in the 'screen resolution' and 'color quality' boxes!
Drag the 'screen resolution' all the way down to then 'less' side. Then change the 'color quality' to the lowest setting. Click apply, then answer yes (the display will look UGLY - don't worry!!) Now connect your computer back to your projector. If it works, then the resolution you use on your desktop monitor is not supported on your projector. Experiment with different resolutions to see which one looks best on your projector. You will need to change the settings each time you switch monitor to projector.
Laptop: by default the VGA connector on your laptop is off. To turn it on, look for a blue symbol on one of your function (F1, F2, F3...) keys. It looks like an old TV with a line on both sides 'O' (F4 on HP) Press & hold the blue button (on the lower left of the keyboard, usually to the left of control ) and tap the bleu button you just found. Let go & give you're a computer a few seconds to change over. If the laptop screen goes blank, you found the correct button! The display image should now be visible. Repeat this 1 to 2 times to change it back to laptop display.
If you did not see the display on the projector, 2 other issues are possible. First, verify that the VGA output on the laptop is working - connect the laptop to a regular computer monitor & change the display resolution to the lowest settings (see desktop above), then try it again on the projector. If you cannot get an image on a computer monitor, your laptop settings may need to be adjusted in the same dialogue box as the settings. Monitor #1 is the laptop display, Monitor #2 is the external output.
Happy viewing :)

After turning on the projector, press "+" and "-" buttons on the control panel
simultaneously for 3 seconds and release the buttons when screen goes blank.
2 Press "+" and "-" buttons again to exit the diagnostic mode.
3While in Self-diagnostic mode, the screen will run a seven-color-cycle test as
Red--> Green--> Blue--> White--> Watchet Blue--> Dark Green--> Yellow.
Ensure that the colors of the test pattern are correct. Contact Dell if the colors are
not displayed correctly.
