If you search this thread you'll find your way into the service menu where you can tame the brightness all you want... down to total darkness.

Hi, yes I have been in the service menu and adjusted the DB setting but nothing "sticks" it reverts to standard after power cycle, plus I am not 100% sure which parameter to adjust.

Adjust Max to kill the brightness and Min to reduce the black level. As far as sticking I don't remember... just that the color wheel speed never stuck.

Hi again, well I can't get the iris settings to "stick" but for now I live with it but another issue I have is the ISF settings, after calibration in the ISF menu it doesn't "load" the ISF profile after power cycle, is there any setting I have overlooked? Thank you in advance

Best regards

Rune

Can someone help me out? My bulb that I replaced recently blew and was still under warranty. I just got the replacement back in the mail, but I have misplaced the piece of paper telling me which side of the connector is positive. I have to install the bare bulb into the housing. I know the wire coming off the back of the bulb is the positive, I'm just not sure which wire coming from the black connector is positive and negative. The connector end only fits in one way, so I know it will be correct going from housing to PJ. I also had written down the orientation of the bulb within the housing, but I'm not sure if that matters or not.

Help!

Do you have a link as to where you bought the bulb?

All BenQ lamps come with the housing included. The knock offs require you to install a bulb in the housing. BenQ lamps are 2year 2000 hour warranty on these W6000's there's docs still somewhere if you google indicating as such.

How much did you pay?? My genuine BenQ ones have been $263 Canadian, but I have had 2 that blew within 200 hours. My W6000 is currently around 12,500 hours. Would be interested in saving some money in the future.

As for your question, the polarity of the bulb should not matter as it is just 2 electrodes that arc to fire the gas inside the bulb then maintain a voltage to keep it illuminated. The electrodes do not physically touch or have a filament. In fact, I believe it is a high voltage AC current that runs the bulb so polarity really wouldn't matter in that case. They are very similar to HID head lights, just more precise and calibrated manufacturing for color and output.

How did these 'aftermarket' bulbs work compared to the original BenQ lamp? I typically see a noticable drop off in brightness at 1500 hours, and almost unusable past 1700 in Economy mode.
