BenQ BP8253 Projector

I bought it in fall 06. Used it for 635 hrs. Projector shut down flashing lights for new bulb. OK took me 8 months to get a new bulb so of course warranty expires. New bulb only last 23 hrs. Now it turns on for a few minutes and shuts off with flashing red. According to book means bad bulb. Bulb is over $400.00 and is new not recon.
Can I bypass this shutdown?
I have tried the reset for bulb timer and reset for everything else. No success.

Had the same problem with PB2140, during startup the lamp went off and power and lamp leds turned on. This happened after the projector fell down. I read a post there hat mentioned it was probably the power supply so i disassembled the projector. I found out that a small transistor of the power supply was torn away but it was still inside the projector. I found it, put it back and the projector works just fine. Thanks!

firdt off, did you reset the lamp counter? did you clean the dust out of the projector? it may be overheating as well. if the lamp looks ok, you may have just blown the ballast. try projector doctor online.

Lamp doesn't turn on


BenQ warrants their lamps at 500 hours...I had one go at 420 hours for my projectors, had to contact the company for a return number and pay to ship the entire unit back to them, then they sent me my unit back with a new bulb installed. Process took about a month.

Lamp burn out 3 time in 16months


clean out your projector. if there is a lot of dust and/or no air flow, the lamp will overheat and die. it needs to cool. use canned air and blow out any and all dust from inside the projector. make sure the fans work. also, don't buy lamps from "bob's lamps". get it from a reputable benq dealer.

Optoma HD65 bulb only 108 hrs old having difficulty starting up


Use the warranty! since you anly had it for 8 weeks, and the waaranty last for one year, go back with it and get it repaired or get a new bulb. A buld last at least 2500 hours, in eco mode it last for over 3000 hours.

Good luck to you

NEC projector LT220 - replaced bulb, works for 1.5 hrs then switches itself off


Hi Matt

There might be a couple of reasons for this problem.

Best is to start with the lamp - return the lamp to whoever you bought it from and insist on a another new one.

If the problem still occurs you should rather take the unit to a repairer - because it could be the Mainboard or the Ballast ( lamp's powersupply ) that is faulty and will need replacement or repair.

Check if your unit is under warranty - because the replacement of a Mainboard is quite expensive.
