    Toshiba projector problem

    Hello,
    new it technician with next to no training into the job needs your help! Does that sound familiar?

    We have on a problem with one of our projectors that keeps shutting down. Now I know it's overheating and so far I've hoovered on the outside of it to see if it makes any difference. It's Toshiba TLP-X2000EDU.

    The other fact I gathered was the lamp time - 1840 hours. I noticed in other posts the recommendations are to replace the lamp after about 2000 hours - so am I heading for lamp replacement?

    Other people mentioned filters noone ever checks those.

    We've had the projector about 18 months so I reckon it's still under warrantee - that is if anyone can find the paperwork for it!

    Also, I have no idea how to replace the bulb in the projector and from health and safety point of view I'm not climbing anywhere!

    Frustrating!!!

    Check which lights flash when it goes off and refer to the manual (you'll be able to find it online).

    As for changing the bulb i'd assume you'll have to take it down - get the caretaker to help... I usually just jump up on a table though

    The manual is a great help, thanks! I will now have to wait to see if/when the projector does it again - not great, since I'm only here 6 hours a week!

    I will have the teacher on the stanby to report the flashing lights status - when I was there it worked normally - typical! We are a split school site and I don't go to the other site very often; not unless they have issues.

    The invoice search didn't yield any results; not unless the projector was Epson initially and for some reason got replaced by Toshiba make without mentioning it on the inventory.

    The ICT coordinator seems to think it's better for us to replace the projector rather than the bulb - what a waste!

    Yeah, it's usually not much more to replace the projector, more of an inconvenience re-setting them up though
