Question about Toshiba TLP-S10 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer


I have a TLP-S10 that got a fan error after I blew air through it to remove dust. I opened it all up and determined that all the fans actually work so i'm stumped. If you have the same projector with the same or different problem send me a personal email ( and maybe we can help each other. Thanks! :)

    Thats good advice, do you have any suggestions for removing the two fans that are on either side of the lens? The circuit board on top of it has ribbon cables that cannot be unattached. Also, do you happen to know the exact location of the air flow sensors? Are they inside the fan? How do you recommend I clean them? Thanks a bunch! :)

    I have a similar problem with the TLP-S10. Plug unit in, press on button, start-up screen appears for 5 seconds and then projector shuts down.

    Fans remain running and "lamp" and "on" lights turn red. Once unit cools down i can start the process over again but the results always remain the same. I am prepared to purchase an new bulb, but am not sure that the bulb is the problem.

There are air flow sensors in the unit as well which you may have blocked up when you blew out the fans. If those sensors do not detect air flow, the assumption is that there is a fan error. Try removing the fan and cleaning the entire air flow path.

My TLP-S10 lamp will not stay on after a couple of moments.

Is the fan working. Check fan. Very likely the device overheated. If fan is working the air filter might need to be cleaned. See you manual how to clean filter and reset the filter cleaning counter so that the device can work properly again.

The fan seems to be running hard and loud. i have cleaned the system and it's running quieter since then. is that normal for the system to do?

I'm assuming that when you say you cleaned the system that you mean you removed programs, old files, viruses, etc.
If your computer is set to change fan speed based on how hot the processor or video card gets, which it probably is, then more programs and stuff running on the computer would cause your hardware to work harder, get hotter, and need more ventilation. Thus faster fan speed.
However, I believe what really happened is that dust collected on the fan(s), causing them to make some new noises and then the dust fell off because it was so heavy or it got sucked through the fan and out of the way finally. Which means it was a coincidence.
Now if you meant that you literally cleaned the computer (opened it up and blew all the "dust bunnys" out) then yeah it makes perfect sense that it would be come quiter.
By the way, if you have not opened the computer case and cleaned out all of the dust, you really really should.
Disconnect the computer from the outlet, open up the case, and using a can of compressed air (about $5) blow out all of the dust, hair, and dirt to make sure your hardware stays in good condition.

Hi, we have a roland camm-1 cutter plotter. It has been showing "fan error" on the display these last few days but would correct itself when turned off and on again. Now though,when I put vinyl in and send...

I had a similar problem. The issue was that I would receive a "fan error" notice but the fan was still spinning when the error displayed and then the machine would stop. I took plotter to my garage, removed the covers and used my air compressor to blow out the dust from the fan and the circuit boards. When I blew out the fan, a ton of dust and "dots" from the punched material came flying out. After a thorough cleaning, I put it back together and have not had the problem since - it works like new. I think what happens is that the fan becomes clogged with dust and dots and slows the fan enough to send an error signal to the plotter. No dust, no dots, no error! Try that - hope it works for you!

I have a Toshiba TLP 260 Multimedia Projector --after a couple of minutes of being on the fan icon appears in upper left corner the projector will shut down indicator lights for the fan and on, goes red. ...

If all the fans are running and you are sure, than it sounds like you have a bad main control board. Double check that all the fans are running. If so you will need to replace the main controller, this is the board that the fans are plugged into.
Thanks the Projector Guy

Case Cooling fan runs at high speed

A few possible solutions.

You said that you got some canned air to blew it out... what I normally like to do is simply use a vacuum and **** up as much dust as possible (besides who wants dust in your face?). Once that is done, I would advise that you take off the fan from the CPU cooler itself and get in there with either the canned air or vacuum... simply because with the fan still attached, there is possibly still a layer to caked dust under the fan and on top of the heat sink.

If it is any of the other case fans, I would either get in there and vacuum them out really good or simply replace them. My computer use to sound like a jet engine after 2 years but when I replaced my fans (with cool blue LED ones) it was significantly (can't stress enough) quieter. Most fans are of course using ball bearings, so if you can imagine the bearings getting a good layer of dust in them as well...

PC won't run: Fan Error

This is a self test that is checking the fan and finding that it is in error. You might have the fan damaged or else just stuck with dust inside and therefore to protect from over heating the laptop gives you this error.

Please check if the fan actually works when you switch on.

I'm not familiar with your specific model, but I do work on projectors all the time (some as large as 35000 lumens). DO NOT touch the lens area. Any movement of those panels will require a reconvergence procedure which is neither easy nor cheap. Use canned air to clean the area of dust. That is about all you can do.

Keep me posted.
