I have that too. But this only happens on my second one. My first 1070 never had this. It may be the cooling of the lamp, may be something else. If I unplug the power cord, the very high pitch and very faint noise stopped. So it is somehow power related. I had this noise since day one but since nobody had mentioned it, I thought it might be an isolated case.

+1 - guessing its the PSU. I'm running at 220V input; are you guys the same?

Doesn't bother me much; also had it since day 1...

Glad your update worked out Ilia. I hear when you say the longest 5 minutes of your life. I'm probably the least computer savy guy on this entire forum. I had my share of difficulties getting the download to work but was really proud of myself when I got it to download. I had taken my unit down from the ceiling to do the update. I remounted it on the ceiling and powered it up and my heart sank. There was no BenQ logo and the menus wouldn't display. I thought I'm out of my league here and so I called and left a message on a friends answering machine. He is an electrical engineer and specialized in computer systems. I was going over and over everything I had done in my head and it finally occurred to me that I had put the lens cap back on to protect it during the remounting. Needless to say, I was ecstatic when It worked perfectly without the lens cap. I couldn't take back the voicemail though.

You have to be careful with HDMI switches and 3D. I am using the following switch which is more expensive and very small. It does pass HDCP and will support 3D.

The first switch should also be ok since it will also pass HDCP.

Will any of these HDMI splitters actually split the signal and allow video on two display devices simultaneously. The one linked above seems to be an either or solution, not a BOTH. I have a flat panel in a gaming area, and the projector in the movie room, that I'd like to feed the same source too simultaneously.

You need a splitter - not a switch. Check to see if your flat panel and projector are the same resolution - ie 1080p. Otherwise the lowest common resolution is the one that is feed to both devices. In other words if you have a 720p flat panel and 1080p projector (or vice-versa) they will both get 720p. You can get a passive or powered splitter but I recommend powered. Monoprice has several HDMI splitters, the one I own is the #8154 and it's been trouble-free. None of my devices are 3D. They have a new model (no reviews yet) that does 4K and 3D.

below is an email i sent to benq, haven't had a reply yet.

I have a problem when using 3d on my Benq W1070 projector using Benq 3D glasses (rechargeable ones).
I cannot get the glasses to stay in sync, works fine for about 30-40 sec then the lens in the glasses start to flash with a red tint and then goes almost solarized through the glasses, the picture on the screen is fine and just shows the blurred 3d image. You suggested a shorter HDMI lead as the one I'm using is 9 meters, have swapped it out for a 3 meter one, I still have the problem. This is playing back 3d Blue ray, but any 3d content give the same problem.
If I hold the glasses front first into the projector light beam, they sync straight away but then lose it about 30 sec after I have sat down.
The glasses are fully charged.

The projector is mounted inverted on a wall behind me and is projected onto a pullup screen.

Does anyone have any ideas....

Regards,

Martin

I got an response from Benq, just wondering what peoples views of these glasses is.
Regards,
Martin

Dear Mr Hamilton,

I just have a feedback from my product specialist, which confirmed that in the situation in which the projector sits behind the person who watch the screen, the second generation glasses have shown sometimes a similar problem of synchronization.
These glasses are now discontinued and at the end of the month the new generation will be released, which will not have any problems.
Alternatively, you can purchase the Sainsonic glasses form the link below. These glasses have been tested with the W1070 and works perfectly

The Sansonic glasses do not do a great job blocking the red flash.

Which glasses are generally considered to be the most suitable for the w1070?  I haven't really bothered with 3D so far, but a few of my Blurays came with a 3D version so I might just take a look. Thanks.

3D TV Corp and Dimensional optics are good. I like the Dimensional's a bit more, they do cost more then the 3DTV Corp's. There are other glasses as well but these are the only two I have tried. You can also check out this thread..

Like everyone mentioned 3DTV glasses. Be surprise watching 3D with this pj. I don't want to watch 2D any more.
post #5898 of 8471
I tried the Dimensional optics glasses and I couldn't get them to sync at all, the glasses looked great and so was the tech support, but ended up with a refund...
post #5899 of 8471
Would the 3dTV glasses work on a 5 and 7 year old? Or would I need to get a smaller kids pair for them?
Any experience anyone?
post #5900 of 8471
It is very loose on my 7yrs old but still work.
post #5901 of 8471
interestingly the glasses Benq recommend for me are not 144Hz.... how strange is that...

I think you will find that if you look up Sainsonic glasses on ebay they are all 96 - 144 hz and not limited to 120hz. Amazon are lazy in updating the listings!

BUT ... contact them and ask the obvious. Keep in mind that many people find Sainsonic glasses to be poor. Check out the glasses specific thread mentioned above. I use and prefer these glasses but they have non rechargeable batteries, some people prefer rechargeable ones: VIP 3D DLP-Link 3D Glasses http://www.ebay.com/itm/130827722094?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

My other preference (for guests) are these: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=281071032288&clk_rvr_id=508729301935 , much cheaper and just as good with rechargeable batteries.

Something had to be wrong because I and many others have these glasses and they work great. I wonder if you got a few pairs of the older versions. I originally got the old ones from Amazon and had to return them. The new ones work great and they are the best glasses around.

Regarding the HDMI Splitter...

I have mentioned this before but get this one and be done... http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=109&cp_id=10113&cs_id=1011306&p_id=7522&seq=1&format=2

Strange I hear many people said this. But on my $17 ebay Sansonic glass I hardly see red background, if at all. I don't know how other glass can do a better job. A bit brighter?

Not strange at all. Just compare them and you will see the difference. I find the blacks are gray with the Sansonic glasses caused by not fully blocking the red flash. I have compared them to the 3dTV, Benq's or Dimensional Optics 3DActive ones and the blacks are better with these.

This is a very good splitter but you must be aware that when you change resolution you probably will have to turn the splitter power off and back on. It seems that all splitters keep the previous resolution settings. You also will not be able to send a 3D image to one set and a 2D to another.

Hey Guys,

I've recently bought this Projector and have one issue that I'm unsure of. Every time I use the Projector, after exactly 2 hours it will go to the Blue Screen and have "Source Checking..." for a few seconds then it will go back to what I'm viewing. I have a feeling it has something to do with the Projector, but I've looked through all the settings and am still not sure what could be causing it to do this. I'm using Smart Eco, could that be the problem?

My TV and Projector are connected to an HDMI Splitter, which is connected to my receiver. I've had no troubles with my TV, only this one issue with the projector. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Anyone has a link to the 1.06 firmware? They don't even have it on the Benq.ca !

The glasses that Benq recommended are definitely not 144Hz see link below..
