My BenQ W5000 did the exact same thing as this photo shows except opposite side of the screen because my projector is inverted today. It is out of its 2 year warranty and I had just clocked up 1497 hours when this happened. Like the OP, it just suddenly appeared and didn't matter if I changed inputs or sources. I powered down and re-fired it up and it has not come back. I am not feeling optimistic about not seeing it again.
The only other issue I have had with this projector was a lamp strike failure at about 1200 hours which has never repeated.
Does anyone know what the cause is - heat, dust? I know a W20000 owner that had the same thing happen at about the same lamp hour time.
