Question about Toshiba TDP-T3 Multimedia Projector
My TDP-T3 turns on fine then after about 5 to 10 minutes automaticlly shuts off flashing a yellow light at me. It does this with or without the Bulb in it and the fan seems to be working fine. Help!!!!
This problem is caused by the overheating sensor cutting in too early. Some bulbs seem to run hotter than others and the overhear sensor seems to gradually cut out at a lower temperature over time. The solution is simple. Open up the projector and you will find the sensor/cutoff bolted to the back of the lamp compartment (not visible from the lamp compartment), you need to take the top off to see it. The component is an Airpax 67L100. You can order a replacement from Digikey.com -- or other component vendors for between $5 and $9. Simply replace the current sensor with a new one (solder it in) and for just a few dollars you will be back in the game. If you want to give yourself a little more margin of heat replace the component with an airpax 67L110 (cut off at 110 degrees instead of 100 degrees). The extra 10 degrees will give you more ability to handle hotter bulbs.
If you want to verify that this really IS the problem before spending the $8 try unbolting the sensor and letting it remain loose. Since it is not bolted down it will not heat up as much and will likely solve the problem. Don't leave it that way though. Once you have satisfied yourself that sensor really is the problem order a replacement, solder it in, and bolt it back down so that it can do its job.
I hope that helps.
