My first lamp failed after 900 hours, I purchased a second lamp part number TLPL-MT8 from partstore.com. The fan failed after around 250 hours. Can the fan be fixed? Do I need to buy a new lamp? Can I expect a free replacement? The lamp was $450.00, so I would like to not have to replace them every 3 months! Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Projector Lamps for the Toshiba TDP-MT8 DLP
Have you contacted Toshiba? They will sell you a new fan. It is possible the power supply has a problem. Bulbs usually have a 90 day warranty. Contact where you bought the bulb. Prices are dropping rapidly for new projectors. Yoiu can buy a new oen for under 500.00.

Your lamp is rated for 3000 hours. Is the fan working to cool the lamp? When you turn off the projector do you allow the fan to continue to run? If not the lamp is not cooling evenly and the lamp will fail. Th filters should be cleaned regularly and the vents be unobstructed.
