Question about Toshiba TDP-S8 Multimedia Projector
I've tried using it on different PC's and it cuts out after about five minutes - everything seems to work OK.
Hi, Cutting out after 5 minutes sounds like an overheat fault. On every projector will be a filter that is user serviceable - it will most likely be blocked up with lint. To Clean - locate the filter & remove carefully. gently brush the lint & dust off the surface of itusing a soft brush or vacuum cleaner on its lowest seting. Try not to puncture the filter element. reinstall.

The reason why the projector is shutting off is so the lamp doesn't explode. It's more of a safety feature on the projector, you can reset the lamp and it might work for another 500hours. If the picture is still pretty bright I can get you the reset procedure, but be warn that when the lamp does eventually blow it could shatter the glass inside, so be careful, it shouldn't hurt the unit.

Have you tried resetting the lamp timer ?
If you have and it didn't solve the problem , take out the lamp and check for any discolouration or markings on the lamp.
If you do find anything out of order then the lamp would need replacement.

Smetimes the other fan comes on when set to full bright. As your lamp is not lighting up, the other fan will not come on. If yo have replaced the lamp and it is still not working, then 9 times out of 10 it is will be the ballast.

Then 'No signal' or 'unsupported signal' messages are usually because your display is set too high. To see if this is your issue, hoop it back up too your computer & set the computer to the basic VGA resolution. Assuming you are using windows, 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, then 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.
Note for Laptop users-- 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 <fn> button (on the lower left of the keyboard, usually to the left of control <crtl>) and tap the bleu button you just found. Let go & give you
