As a word of caution to everyone, I turned on my W1070 a little earlier today and the internal fan didn't start up. It was dead quiet. At first I thought there was something wrong until the image appeared, and I figured maybe it was just cold. That is, until I could smell a burning smell, then I knew something wasn't up.
Pressing the power button on the remote had no effect, so in a panic, I went over to the power and disconnected it. The fan turned on the next couple of times I attempted to fire the unit back up, but the lamp light was lit up red and there was no display. Eventually, the light went away, and the image was displayed again as normal.
I've had mine for less than a month, and if it happens again I reckon I'll just return it, but from now on, whenever I'm starting mine up I don't leave the room until I can hear that fan spinning.
