I have a refurb benq w10000 which I picked up about 10 months ago. Lately, it has been flickering really bad only on bright or white areas of the screen while the rest of the screen is fine. I sent it into a BenQ service facility for repair, and they told me it was my lamp, which unfortunately was not under warranty. I just purchased a new lamp, installed it, and I still have the same problem.

Have you tried using the lamp on high power to see if that solves it? Otherwise it might be a problem with the circuit that powers the lamp. I had the same issue with my HD350, but I only had to change to high power to solve it, it's quite subtle, but the flickering gets to me once I spot it.

I had this issue on a Panasonic and kicking the buld up to high power vivid for 10 hrs cured it, mine happened around 3-400 hrs then went away.

I'll give it a try. I researched on here about people having similar problems, and running it on high to correct it. I just thought it was weird that it did this even after I replaced the lamp.

I own a Benq W10000 and had some flickering at around the 200 hour mark. I was running in low lamp mode and switched it to high for a couple of movies then switched back and haven't had a problem since ( now over 500 hours ).

Having the opposite problem. I've been running my PJ on high and it just started flickering, switched it to low and it went away.

BenQ tends to have that be their default judgement..."you need a new lamp". I trust they sent back your original lamp when they exchanged it? Likely it was still perfectly good.

That's exactly what they did. I still have the original. It only has 900 hours on it.

I wonder if this fixes it, if I can send back the lamp that I bought. I didn't really want to get a new one yet. I only bought it because they told me to. It would be nice to have an extra $400 in my pocket.
