If it is a high pitched whine, then it is most likely the color wheel. Mine did the same thing, took it apart and there is no way to lubricate the bearing, just have to deal with it. If it is a lower noise like a vibration or grinding, your best bet is to check the fans. Take the case apart and spin the fans to see if one is not spinning freely. You can lube them by taking the sticker off the back and putting a drop of oil on the shaft, then spin it until it frees up. Make sure you seal it back up with a piece of tape or something so that no contaminants get in there.

That might be that the lamp has exploded inside or the lamp's condition has deteriorated to the point where the projector can't drive the lamp. Try a new lamp and be sure to follow the reset procedure that comes with your lamp to reset the hour counter.
Hi I am Vortashpossibly a loose plug or the bulb housing is not secure and the cut off switch is not contacting .. loose fuse .. dry joints o loose component .. one thing is for sure keep shaking it
and your going to kill your bulb ?. During the arc on the lamp it builds up carbon deposits if they break loose they get hot in the bulb under working conditions against the glass and sometimes fracture it ?. don't shake your your unit unless you can afford to replace this at between $400 and $800 i bet that repair would be a more economic solution hope this helps Regards Vortash
This is most probably your lamp , I have had loads of PB6100 's that has even had less hours on the lamp than yours and needed replacement.
Keep in mind that the 2000-3000 hours they talk about on a lamp is just a rough factory estimate. The time you get on a lamp is determined by how you use the Projector - because at the end of the day the lamp is just like a globe in your home - it doesn't like being swithed on and off for short periods. This is a mistake most Projector owners make - by thinking they are saving the bulb's lifetime and switching it off for short periods.
You can take my word on this as I am a Authorised BenQ Service Technician.
I've had clients who got 10 000 hours on one bulb just because they left the unit running for longer periods.
Lamp Part No : 60.J8618.CG1
Easiest way to make 100% sure before investing in a new lamp is to take out the lamp by opening the lamp door at the bottom.
Check for any vein like looking marks in either white or black or a bubble on the shaft.
