Re: Won't turn on, only flashes red light

Probably the filter is blocked. Unplug the power lead at the back and leave for about 30 seconds. Plug back in and it should work. The first opportunity you get, buy some compressed air and give it a good clean.

Benq w1000 project not turning on

Look at the manual page 34, for the indicator messages. I suspect it's the same problem I have (which I haven't had formally diagnosed yet!), which I believe is a defective fan. My projector had been making a really loud noise on startup, which varied in length and volume. Recently the projector has taken to turning itself off after being on for about a minute, and the power light flashes green, with the temp and lamp lights flashing red.

Turn on the projector the power light flashes green with status as green then it goes to a flashing orange light

there should be a status for the lamp light; check to see if this one turns red. If it does count the consecutive blinks if it is 6 then replace the lamp

Green light flashing, bulb will not turn on, green light sometimes goes to red flashing light

check the lamp. does it have bulges, black spots, flaking or fogging? if so replace it. aslo if the screen on the side is clogged with dust. if the lamp is ok, check the colorwheel. if you don't hear a high-pitched whir when you turn it on, the colorwheel motor is bad. replace the colorwheel. check the fans, too.

No lamp and a flashing red status light

The lamp has run out of its operating hours which is normally 3000 hrs. Replace the lamp and you will be alright.
