Hi,

I have just completed the setup of my new projector BenQ W1070. But i m having issue with the 3d thing. When i go into setup of the projector, i cant select Auto for the 3d. It is always grey. I tried some movies but i cant select Auto and i cant get the 3d view. I also tried it without the AVR. Directly connected the 3D Player to the Projector but still no 3D. Does anybody have an idea about my issue?

My configuration is ;

Projector - BenQ W1070
AVR - Yamaha RXV 775
3D Bluray Player - Pioneer BDP 140
Cable - Mediabridge Ultra 3D
Glasses - Sainsonic 144 Hz 3D

For troubleshooting, eliminate the AVR as you have done. Running straight from BluRay to projector, make SURE You are a using a 3D bluray (duh, right?), go into your bluray settings and make sure that 3D is enabled. Try different HDMI cables. Try turning the bluray off and back on to resolve potential handshaking issues. You shouldn't have to change any settings on the w1070.

Some 3D blurays don't switch to 3D until the movie starts or the main menu starts. Try a different 3D bluray.

Those are my suggestions.

It's hard to love Martin Logans and 2.35:1 CIH at the same time...

Quick question. I'm trying to use the throw calculators from projectorcentral and from BenQ. BenQ sets the default zoom at 1.0, while you can't get lower than 1.15 zoom on projector central.

So what do people have their zooms on, and does zooming affect PQ? My couch is 13' away, so looks like 120" screen what I'll be looking at. Thanks!

Your projector is at a slight angle.

Any projector needs to be angled with its lens perfectly, perfectly perpendicular to the screen - at a dead-on right-angle - otherwise you get the geometry you're seeing. And of course it also needs to be perfectly level (parallel) with the screen as well (probably not a problem in your case).

Same as Kreeturez said.
In your case it looks like your projector needs to be moved a few inches to the right (that's if you're standing behind it, facing the screen) and turned to still face dead-center on the screen of course, and the left leg might need to be raised just a hair.

This is why when you ceiling mount it is very important to measure plenty of times before you mount your projector. Because right now you with it on a table you can move all over the place.

I spent many nights measuring and marking with tape where my pj would go.

First Post on the Forum, thanks for all the help in pulling the trigger on the W1070 and an Elite 120" Sable screen.

That being said, I am planning to shelf mount the PJ at the level of the top of the screen. Will this present any issues with the throw? I have vaulted ceilings that prevent an easy ceiling mount. I am concerned that the PJ will not be able to adjust the image down with lens-shift.

Any help fro you guys is appreciated.

TIA

Was planning on just a shelf mount but learned that's a no go. Currently looking at ceiling mounts that can also mount to the back wall

Got a satellite box today for the theater and tested the projector for the first time. Projecting the signal onto a yellow wall with a lot of ambient light and I am still impressed. Can't wait to see the results when I get the screen put up and properly position.the projector.

A year after I have my setup, I too wish I went with a 2.35 screen... Has anyone used this projector with a 2.35 screen (zoom method)?


I haven't checked in on this thread in a long time. Amazing how active it still is.

I don't believe the W1070 has enough zoom range to fit a 16:9 image into the height of a 2.35 screen.
I am using my W1070 with a 2.1 ratio screen (constant area); white over black spandex at 114" wide X 54" high (gain estimated at 0.80).
The constant area screen provides the best of both worlds and works with the W1070's limited 1.3X zoom lens.
Likely not many W1070 owners go to the trouble of masking, but those who do will need four-way masking when using a constant area screen;
small strips on the sides for 16:9 movies, and small strips top and bottom for 2.35 movies. I don't bother.

Switching between the two screen formats on the projector takes about 30 seconds to change the zoom and then refocus. I find that the lettering of the projector's menu provides the best image for focusing.
Also worth noting is that the offset needs to be changed when switching back and forth. My projector is mounted upside down on a shelf so zooming to the widest image requires the front of the projector to be lifted ever so slightly, which I accomplish with a thin piece of trim. The change in angle is so slight that the change in geometry does not show at all in the image.
Though having to make the switch manually is somewhat of a hassle (I have to stand on the frame of my sofa) it is well worth the effort. I can not enjoy a 2.35 blockbuster movie without zooming the image wider.

If anyone is interested in shelf mounting their W1070 just PM me and I will post some pictures in this forum. You can't just lay this projector upside down on a shelf (obviously). Making the controls accessible for zooming also takes some thought.[/quote]

I need help with the upside down projector mounting!!! Pm me or something, I really need advice.

1.You'll need a low profile projector ceiling mount first. (read instructions)

2. Attach it to the bottom of the shelf.

3. Hang projector.

4. Enjoy =)

Make sure nothing is within 1.5ft of the vents. Airflow is critical to a happy projector.

What is the extension rod length of C4504 mount?

Works, stable, downside of being cheap is the lack of screwdriver::vernier adjustments for the inveterate tweaker.

You've got about 9" of adjustment range. Minimum (ceiling -> center_of_lens) is ~15.5".

I foundout after weeks of stress with same issue that one of the rear feet is adjustable, wondered why only one is, but if you adjust it up or down it will twist the image straight for you.
Also,
Make sure your table is completely flat as that can twist the image aswell.

I have 2 stacked in a stacked setup (passive 3d) and they are upsidedown, boy oh boy was that fun to get aligned and setup right.

Thanks Scotthal,
Do you mean Dell C4504 you have is with adjustable extension? Does the mount provides sufficient adjustment?
By looking at the image I think it's with fixed rod length. Another model dell C3504 is with adjustable extension, which i think is also usable. However if the fixed rod fits my ceiling I prefer a simple and sturdy extension and get the C4504.

The C4504 has an adjustable extension - inner pipe comes drilled at 2" intervals; outside pipe has two through holes, spaced an inch apart. So the pipe assembly can be solidly bolted together, with effective length ranging from 12"..21". Mounting plate w/spacers adds about an inch, lens center adds another 2.6". Pitch & roll adjustments are limited, but should suffice if your pipe is truly vertical... I had some problems with that (effing popcorn ceiling).

Hello!
There is a 119 inch screen and 3.5 meters between the wall and screen. I think to install at that place standard set with the 1070 pj, the screen was pre-determined.
There is also a choice between w1070st (as far as I know it is the same as w1080st) and w1070. The w1070st is even cheaper, what surprises me, but not much.
I have been reading that it is better to trim the zoom in the middle, for best lens performance.
At the current set the picture, according to the benq calculator, fits, but I am not sure or the picture will fit to the screen with middle zoom. So I have the opportunity to choice between w1070 and w1070st(w1080st). Also maybe there are some other new pjs at this time with good colours and not so noticeable RBW-effect? There is a deal that the hd25e is available at the same price as the w1070. But how far I know at the HD25e the RBW-effect can be noticed. But maybe you know something about the hd25e that i don`t know. Anyway I know that the HD25e has the same colour wheel as the x131e, so the main question is about the difference between w1070 and w1070st(w1080), I meant the image quality. How far I know, the short-throw version of this pj sometimes has a little bit unfocused corners.

The W1070 would work best. At full zoom (largest picture), all four corners are sharp, at minimum zoom (smallest picture), one corner does not want to come into focus. With the projector mounted on the back wall your throw distance is about 3.2 meters, which will give you 119 inches near maximum zoom. Perfect. There are no projectors near this price range that have both a better picture and no Rainbow. W1070 is still the one to beat.
