    So, I have an 5 year old Benq w1070 that was working great. The bulb had around 1500hours. Five days ago I was watching a film and the bulb exploded. Everything went black and the projector turned of (no lights on the buttons - all off). So I unplugged from the wall and other a bare bulb for...

    Hi all, I've been having issues with my Benq w1070. It's 5 years old now, so probably time to get something new, but I thought i'd try my hand at some home repair. I think I may be in over my head. The initial problem was, what I thought, a color wheel issue. I took it apart to try and see what...

    The color wheel in my w1070 shattered... I took it completely apart and bought one off ebay. I could only find them coming from china. Took awhile to get here and I finally got it today and put it in after a good cleaning of the unit. Got it powered back on, no extra screws or issues, been...

    I recently bought a lg ph550. It is decent, however, its 720p resolution is just not good enough. So i want to buy a new projector to replace it. I am considering the benq HT1070A or w1070. I heard a lot about HT1070A has great image. But projector central also posted that its bright is just...

    Hi all, I have bought a used W1070, succesfully used it once, and since then have had problems with overheating. The projector shuts down after about 5 minutes of use and the TEMP light is red. I soon realized that the front lamp fan was not running at all. I opened the case and disassembled...

    Hey There, I have a Benq W1070 that i have had for a year. It has served me really well, and i overall love the projector. The other day i noticed the noise level seemed to be higher and it was driving me nuts in quiet scenes. Seemed louder and a tiny bit of a squeel. Not a huge issue but it...

    BenQ's W1070 is one of the most popular low-cost 1080p projectors among AVS Forum members, and with good reason—it offers great performance for little money. But as with all things electronic, improvements are inevitable, so after four years on the market, BenQ is replacing the W1070 with the...

    Hi, I hope yall can help me! I have a BenQ W1070 that I used for a couple years before it just stopped working and wouldn't even power on (not a bad bulb or any error code signaled). The repair shop said it needed a new main board. They replaced it and it worked. However. - The lens is off...

    This thing appeared when I turned on my projector this afternoon. I don't think it was there when I used it last night. Edit: For some reason, the forum rotated this image 90 degrees counter clockwise. I'm calling it a "thing" because I'm not sure how to describe it. It kind of reminds me of...

    Fresh owner of Benq W1070 :). I plan to use it in a small room projecting from 3.3m just above the sitting position. I would like to go with a 100" screen. The room has white ceiling :(, pale smoke grey side wall except the wall sitting opposed to the projector which is dark grey. I have ikea...

    Hi, I am looking for options for ceiling mounting a Benq W1070 for use with a 80x45" screen that will be mounted 2.25" from the ceiling. The reason that the screen is so close to the ceiling is that our basement wall has a 4' high section that protrudes inward, creating a shelf that runs...

    Hi! A few weeks ago, after one year and around 800 working hours my projector (w1080st) stopped to work: the image silently dissapeared and red light for lamp lighted up. I was sure that tha lamp had broken and because the lamp waranty is only 6 months, I gave up that it can be repaired for...

    I have a BenQ W1070 and love it. However, I have one super annoying issue. Periodically it loses its signal and shows the black “searching for signal” screen for a few seconds. At times this seems to happen at random but it seems to flow with power fluctuations in our house. Also, if I have my...

    Hi All, First time posting on here, but been reading for a while. Need some advice as to whether the DN1050 is a good replacement for my current amp. I've noticed that its price has dropped significantly. ($750ish in JB) Probably due to the DN1060. Current Setup: TV - KDL32EX (32" LED LCD) -...
