Not sure if it is related by my MT200 would not power up at all eventually. Check the lamp cover micro switch is being depressed. I posted the comment below somewhere else. I hope this might help.

"I had exactly the same problem with the same projector. I took the whole thing apart last night, including all PCB boards the lot. After a lot of searching I found nothing untoward. Finally after figuring out how to put the thing back togther again, ready to accept defeat I noticed the micro-switch on the lamp replacement cover.
It turns out that the little plastic striker moulded to the lamp replacement cover was deformed/warped (possibly by heat?) and eventually it must have got to the point of not switching the micro-switch into the closed safe position. (I assume it there so that you can not power up the unit whilst the lamp cover is off, which would make sense) With the power effectively on and being very careful, I manually depressed the micro switch (with something plastic) the projector jumped into life! Of course I can not recommend anyone does this as it is probably not safe , but neither is having to pay a shed load for a service just for a **** plastic cover replacement. Long story short it fixed the issue. Hope this helps someone and saves them tearing their unit apart."

Due to voltage fluctuation fumes come out from the projector what might have happened? and what would be the repairing cost?

you fried the power supply board and/or the ballast. you'll spend more on the labor than the part itself, and toshiba won't sell the parts. you'll have to send it in to them.

Optoma H56 - turns off just after start up.

It's not a short, the blub is near the end of it's life ~ the optoma is designed to detect when the blub is about to blow and shuts itself down. Turning the projector upside down or right side up usually only gives you a brief reprieve (some have reported a modest amount of extra time gained) on the blub ~ but in the end it's on it's way out and the projector will shut down again.

Dark Area Growing on Right Side of Image

It isnt the lens. There is a crystal asembly that the light is reflected thru after it hits the color wheel. It is 4 pieces of completely mirrored glass glued into a small metal holder. One of those pieces has shifted. To fix it, you can take it out and possibly have a jeweler repair it. It is difficult to take out, but it is doable. Feel free to contact me if you need to. email is (bill @ baerwalde . com) Just remove the spaces.
