Question about Toshiba TDP-MT500 Multimedia Projector
What does the Blinking red lamp light mean? Also, the projector is loud. The manual said on rare occasions the color wheel spins at a high rate of speed causing a metal scraping sound. Is there any way to fix this?
Blinking red light normally only occurs when lamp needs replacing. one thing to try other than replacing the lamp is resetting the lamp used hours timer (page 33), and if this solves the flashing light you may get some more hours out of your bulb http://tacpservice.toshiba.com/ConsumerProductSupport/Manuals/projectors/MT500.pdf The wheel noise is supposed to be normal and an element of the design - don't think they thought that one through too well. Saying that, if it is all the time and painfully loud then something (possibly the bearing or the housing that the bearing sits in) needs bending back or replacing - toshiba do not suggest any long term solution to the problem at all. Hope this helps please bother toshiba about this, and it may help stop them selling unfinished designs. We must all fight for a better future etc. etc. etc. ;) Hope this helps :)
