Could make sense.. I've got a new HDMI switch coming in today, so that I can test. I'll get back on this later on.

Also very strange, but I can't seem to get the 2nd HDMI (the one that supports MHL) to work.. Is there something special about this port ? Or should it just work like the first HDMI without MHL support ?
The devices that work on the first HDMI , get a signal on the MHL port , but don't display anything.

i'm going to send it in. Still not working with a new HDMI switch.
It's sucks that it's just 2 month out of warranty ...

Dreamer, I have repaired the projector!!!
I have found a shorted smd capacitor(C297) on the mainboard, and a 48 pin DC/DC converter IC(PMD1000), that was not delivering the necessary voltages.
After replacing these parts, the pj booted right up.
The image it was very dull. I thought, that I need to replace the bulb, but all it needed, a good cleanup.
The image, is very nice and crisp.
Thank you again for the pj.
I don't know, why the image is rotated?

That's great ! Glad to see somebody will get some more use out of it. I am also glad I didn't waste money trying to guess and replace parts myself. No way I would have figured out what you did.

Yesterday I had a bad luck, the bulb blew up.
Dreamer, do you know anything about this bulb? It was the original bulb, that came with it, or it was a replacement one? It showed, a bit over 2800 hours.
Any recommendations, for a new one? I need the housing as well, the glass is cracked.
Most likely I will sell it, since I have the HT2050A now.

It wasn't the bulb, it was the color wheel, that blew up. Maybe, I screwed up something at the assembly?

Bummer ! Seems awful coincidental to have the color wheel fail so soon after reassembly. The lamp was an inexpensive replacement lamp, not original.

There was a black cardboard, that was sticking upward, from the bottom of the case, and I have forgot where it suppose to go.
I have pushed it, behind the color wheel shield(the one with the round hole). I have assumed, that it was for blocking the light.
While running it, I have noticed a light bleed through the exhaust vent, that was bothering me. It was next to the image projected on the wall, very noticeable.
I thought, that it's coming from that shield and I have pushed on it a bit, to close the gap. Than, it started to make some weird buzzing sound and than it popped.
Hey, it's my first projector repair, I'm learning. Next time, I will take pictures, before I take something apart.
$46 mistake.

Just checked my lamp today. I’m at 3620 and I haven’t seen the warning message yet?

That’s over due isn’t it?

I don't think so, especially if you run in SmartECO. My first W1070 lamp blew up around 3900 hours and I never got a message.

TIA

My OEM bulb bulk blew out a few weeks ago. Not sure what I'm going to do... the bulb is costly, the unit is end of life, but I like that fits perfectly in it's location. It looks like the replacement BenQ short throw solution needs to be further away from the rear apartment wall for air circulation. That forces me to change from a wall mount to a ceiling mount, and I was never able to locate anything like a ceiling joist to mount eh W1070, and it'll also unacceptably reduce the image size.

There are option for a ceiling mount. The easiest is mount the projector to square piece of 1/2 thick wood maybe that has been painted to match the ceiling. The wood should be large enough that it can be mounted to the joists.

SmartEco offers a huge boost to dynamic contrast with nearly instantaneous reaction time. Plus, it boosts lamp lifetime much more than normal, so win win. I don't understand how anyone could use their DLP projectors with it off, it just looks terrible to me.

Haha. Murphy's Law.

It's probably time for me to order a new bulb too. It's always better to replace the bulb long before it's time to explode, to be safe.

I keep expecting there to be something affordable that's worth upgrading to every year but keep getting disappointed.

As soon as there's a 1080p DC3 projector that offers 2300:1 contrast or better, with HDR10 decoding and 4K input (HDCP 2.2 and HDMI 2.0a), with 120hz at least, then I'll jump. We're nearly there with the Acer G550 but it doesn't do HDR10 decoding so not quite.

I also really want laser light source too, and I think 2019 will be when all this comes together. Personally I'm not all that keen on 4K DLPs if it means 700:1 contrast ratio, but I would consider it for under a grand. I'd rather 1080p HDR10 with 120hz and middling contrast than 4K HDR10 with poor contrast. Poor contrast and HDR aren't words that go well together.

Weird, my new RTX 2080 Ti is allowing me to pass 10-bit SDR at 1080p 60 in RGB to the projector. The desktop is still in 32-bit, so still 8-bit and thus gradients don't show improvement, but I think for fullscreen media player modes playing downscaled UHD content I could probably get full 10-bit. I'll try to run some tests in fullscreen in Media Player Classic. At least SDR 10-bit UHD should show some improvement, and even 10-bit HDR, tone mapped at the PC end to Gamma 2.4 to 2.8 should show some improvement to the HDR-ness of this projector, without introducing hopefully too much banding.

Stay tuned!

By the way, the RTX 2080 Ti is totally awesome for UHD Play back using SVP. I can decode several UHD films simultaneously to 144hz on my monitor without breaking a sweat, 16^ GPU occupancy! Crazy good.

It's waiting now for when you least expect it

Anyway, just stopped by this thread to say I can't believe it's been three years already since buying this projector. I only put a 1000 hours on the original bulb so far. Thought I was going to be using it a lot more for gaming and such but I only ended up using it as movie nights for worthy movies. Though I have, from time to time marathoned a few nexflix series. The blu-ray player I bought for it is still kicking as well as the 4 pair of 3D glasses. I'm even more amazed at my JVC-7000V I bought way back in 2000 is still rocking. Money well spent is all I can say.

Hi guys, got a weird problem with my W1070 going on that I'd appreciate some help dealing with. I had the seemingly common issue of my bulb exploding and glass getting sucked into the central blower fan. I followed the guides available online and rebuilt the projector, clearing out any glass/dust in the process.

Since then it has worked intermittently, but will often times lose power, with ALL of the lights on it not being illuminated, as if it's not receiving power at all. i just realized that if I squeeze the chassis (top and bottom) together, then it will start receiving power again, and can often be used for multiple hours.

When I was reassembling it, it didn't fit together quite as tightly as originally, as the plastic clips seem to have fatigued.
Could there be some kind of chassis intrusion detection that is being triggered by the case being loose, or is it more likely a loose connection inside the projector? Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated!

If memory serves (been a while since I owned this unit), it sounds like your lamp door switch isn't being depressed properly by the lamp cover.

The projector cuts power completely if the door is detected as being open: check that the prong in the lamp cover is properly pressing in the switch and hopefully you'll be sorted...

Benq 1070 shutdown

Hi everybody
My Benq 1070 was running flawlessly when it abruptly shutdown. Now the VP doesnt start. The power button(with the power sign) stays green and the power led stays red. Everything else stays off. I had recently successfully changed the lamp and the VP run for about 50 hours before the above occured. Any help please?

Get the dust checked on color wheel. Also google on how to access it’s service menu to check what really happened.

Getting some opinions from W1070 owners here.
I have never own a projector before but would like to try since a lot is saying projector is the best upgrade in their HT journey.

I'm currently using a LG oled C7 65".
Was waiting for the Benq W2700 to be released. But I suspect it will be going at around SGD3000 when it is released in Singapore.
So I'm thinking should I just get a used W1070 for SGD500 or to spend 6 times more on the new W2700.

My room is very small. 3m x 3.5m.
My viewing distance from the dropdown screen would be around 2.8m - 3m.

I'm planning to go on a 100" screen.
Will that be too big since the PQ is not 4k?

I have a room just like that and i had the w1070 with a 100 inch screen from 3,5 meter distance. then i upgrated to a 120 inch screen covering almost the whole wall and that was even a better experience!
Now i have my lg oled c865 from 7 feet distance in that room instead.

Thanks for sharing, mate!
Since you have owned both, may I know which one give a better movie experience to you? 100" on W1070 or oled 65C8? Taking into consideration both the size and PQ.

I can not choose which one gives a better movie experience,because i love the size of the projectorscreen and i love the PQ of the Oled.

The oled with 7 feet distance is too close in my face to have a movietheater experience.
It needs to be further away like the 100inch screen.
I wish i had 77 inch oled from 7 feet distance by the way.


I also have a W1080ST in the livingroom right now by the way with a 135 inch screen from 4.5m distance. Yes,it gives you a better movietheather experience, but now that i have the oled,i can see how much i miss the pure blacks and contrast on the projector.
I think i will buy a 4k laser projector in the future when the prices are lower.

Ya. The black level on oled just amazes me every single time I watch a movie.

yeah on second thought,i dont know if i will ever buy a projector again,because it can never have such deep blacks. I just want a 120 inch oledtv in my bedroom for 2000 euro.
