i found putting pressure on a certain point on top of the projector can stop it sometimes, and also switching from smart eco to eco makes it run down (as the fan slows i guess) and sometimes stop, but yesterday it went for 3 hours before getting quiet enough to watch something.

I'm not 100% sure that it's the fan if you can halt/change its sound by applying pressure to the top: it could be the lamp cover simply rattling.

I swapped lamps out a while back and presumably didn't clip the cover back into place properly - and it did what you're describing (rattling - including 'going away' when the cover was pushed); so check it hasn't come loose with all those hours of use (are you ceiling mounted?)

Maybe take it down to re-seat the white plastic lamp cover: there's just one screw on its side if you want to take it off to do so. I didn't need to do anything with the lamp itself, just the white plastic cover.

Sorted it for me.

Question about the Height mount of the Benq w1070. Does it matter How high the projector is mounted.

At this spot I am looking at 125 screen mounting projector 20 inch from the ceiling.

The center of the lens MUST be 2" to 6" above the top of your screen. So, if the center of the lens is 20" from your ceiling, the top of the screen must be 22" to 26" from the top of the ceiling.

It seems very strange that 75% of people asking about projector placement in the last month have a ceiling fan in the room to work around. Very odd.

Most homes only have one room with a ceiling fan that isn't a kitchen or bedroom, if they have any at all, so what are the chances that the same room people want to put a projector in happens to be the one with a fan ?

Every single room (except bathrooms) in my house has a ceiling fan. Luckily the BenQ fit in front of it in the basement family room that I use as a "theater."

Yes, ceiling fans are all evil and should be sot.

The Epson 3000 has more lens shift and can be placed below the top of your screen (anywhere between the top and bottom actually) and will do what you need. It doesn't look as good as the W1070, but is close in price and does what you need.

Or, take the fan down.

Then get the 1080ST. It looks darn near identical. You really need to use a fixed frame screen with it, but it's a great solution when you need the projector a bit closer.

How close can the projector be mounted to the ceiling? My screen will be 6" from the ceiling so the center of lens must be 4" from ceiling? Can I mount it that high, it will be almost touching?

hey kreeturez
thanks a lot for the advice.

i opened it and lifted the plastic sheet and the clip seems to be in place correctly, though I haven't seen any photos of what it should look like. unfortunately i can't turn it on with the lid removed so i can't tell what exactly is vibrating.

it still makes the noise after re-sealing it all. but it does seem to be that pushing in the area that the plastic sheet covers quiets it, at least while my thumb presses rather hard on it. it could be the clip, the plastic, or just that the fan gets fixed by deforming the body...

Quick question, if I ceiling mount this, can it shoot Strait with no offset? My mounting position needs it straight, I don't really have many inches to go down.

So my projector unexepectedly shut down tonight. No warning, the screen went black, the red lamp light went on. It was really hot in my apartment (had the gas fireplace on for too long previously) so I expected overheating. I waited an hour, then turned it back on with no problem! If it was an overheating issue, why didn't the temperature light turn on instead on the lamp light?

It doesn't, unfortunately: you'll need a few extra inches above the screen regardless of lens shift...

Because lamp life is what you'll shorten with frequent overheats?

If you check around these forums you'll see that this is the light that does tend to go on in a room that's too hot or when ventilation is very poor around the pj. No idea why. But provided you power on OK after cooling down, it's not actually the lamp.

In seriousness though, you'll want to avoid running any projector in a situation where you're "expecting overheating" since it will most certainly shorten both projector and lamp life: which would be a waste with a lamp rated for such long life.

It can't shoot "straight" but you can cheat. All that really matters is that the angle between the screen and the projector light path be correct so you aren't forced to correct trapezoid keystoning.

If you can't place the white area of the screen at least 2.5 inches below the lens, you can angle the projector UP and tilt the screen OUT at the top edge to preserve the angles and prevent keystoning. Of course, this only works with fixed frame screens, not retractable. But with a fixed frame screen, the tilt shouldn't put the top edge of the screen more than 2" away from the wall. This has the benefit of tilting the screen down toward the viewers so they don't have to crane their necks. Especially useful for screens high on the wall like over fireplaces.

Okay, so two people have said this now, so even with the lens shift, there is still an offset? I looked up the manual and the picture shows it shooting straight. Would a very small amount of keystone really affect things too much?

What I have is a wall with two rectangle cutouts Top of the rectangle is 103 inchs. I am going to mount the projector to the top of one of those. Even with the lowest profile mount, I'm going to lose 3 inches or so and then another 3 inches with the offset. It is going to go on a fixed frame screen as wife has nixed the retractable one we already have but I doubt she will go for it tilting out on the wall.

What's your verdict regarding the W1070's black levels/shadow details now that you have some hours on the bulb? Blacks and shadows still crushed? Just curious to hear from an experience FP owner of the W1070.

You need to come up with a mount that works well which can be that tight to the ceiling. The reality is that there are no true 'flush' projector mounts on the market. They don't exist. So, any mount you get will push the projector several inches away from the ceiling.

But, Premier makes a mount (about $70) which may work well. Read the reviews here which speak specifically to the W1070:
http://www.amazon.com/Premier-Mounts...ustomerReviews

It indicates that the center of the lens can be under 4" from the ceiling, and they were able to use lens shift to keep the image within about an inch of the center of the lens, so the top of the image was less than 5" from the ceiling.

Sounds like an ideal solution for you.

Not sure why someone said 18" - that's not correct at all.

Well, that's not correct. It doesn't lower the screen, it just presents the screen more squared to the viewers when seated. Not a bad thing or a good thing really, but if the screen is high in the room, then people are still looking up just as much as they ever were.

What cables are you running directly into the projector? Just an HDMI?

well after finding out that the HDMI setting should be on "PC" instead of auto fixed that issue. i no longer get the crushing of blacks and whites. now i get decent shadow detail. the blacks aren't great and the contrast isn't great which causes the image to be a little flat. but it's sharp and bright with decent colors. one thing i've noticed compared to my previous projector is how source dependent this projector is. blu rays look great of course but watching tv (i have Dish network) is a crapshoot. last night's game on espn looked really good...better than any college game this past saturday. the Sharp i had before seemed to do a better job with inferior signals.

it's taking some getting used to. i don't know how many times i've thought about returning the Benq and getting the Sony hw40. but it's just not in the budget right now.

p.s. regarding the sharpness and noise reduction settings, i tried setting both of them to zero but it just looks to soft to me. for now i've settled on 10 for sharpness and 4 for noise reduction.
