Benq W1070 acting up
I've been spying on this forum without an account for quite a while now. I guess it was time to register.
Anyway, I've had my Benq W1070 projector for 6 months now and all of a sudden I have a weird problem with it.
After about 10 to 15 minutes of turning the projecter on, during which it gives me perfect images, it will start flickering and drop frames. After about a minute it stops flickering and the colours are all screwed up, getting much darker and especially faces getting a green hue.
It's connected through HDMI. I've tried changing cables, changing colour settings, using different inputs and sources, etc.
When the colours are all screwed up and I put the projector in eco/blank mode, the fans will start spinning very fast, the lamp will go off and the red 'lamp' light comes on.
After letting it cool down for about 15 to 20 minutes I can turn the projector on again and it looks great again, but then ... you know, rinse and repeat.
It may be nothing, but it looks like it takes a bit longer to get all screwed up on a Bluray player than a media topbox.
I've ordered a new lamp, which I will be trying this weekend, but my gut says this may not be the problem.
