Question about BenQ W710ST 3D HD Short Throw DLP Projector
Bought it used. First time i turned it on it started turning off after one minute. I also noticed on the menu under lamp hours it said zero. Do I need a new bulb too?
New bulb is probalbly needed. You need to find out what zero means on that projector. The real problem is finding out why the cooling fan is not turning on. This is probably the reason that the temp light is coming on.

I had the same problem.
First thing to do is look up the owners manual, unless you happen to still have it, then verify the the sensor for the second (or rear something that sounds not like first) temp sensor is going off. If it is basically the fan that sends air into the lamps compartment may be clogged. I have had mine for several years and recently had the same problem. I almost went out to buy something new until I convinced myself that there was no harm in taking it apart and trying something. Good thing too, since all I had to do was clean the fan and reassemble. After that it stopped turning off by itself and I haven't seen any red lights.
Good luck to You!

After 2 years I finnaly solved the problem. There was a flaw in the lamp´s temperature circuit. A technician disassambled my BENQ PB8253 unit and fixed the problem. Charged me US$ 75.00. I´m in Brazil.
Hope this can help.

SOURCE: I have a BenQ PB6100
The inverter - the system that generates the high voltage needed by the bulb - has failed due to normal wear. When that happened it has surely done some damage in the power source also.
The projector is fixable, the inverter/ballast board will have to be replaced and the power source tested and repaired if necessary. But on an such old device, age related failures will be common from now on and in the end fixing them will cost you more than a new one - it's time to accept that this one has done its duty and it's time to retire.
Just cut your losses and buy a new one.

If the lamp usage time has passed 2 000 hours (when LAMP POWER has been set to NORMAL), the projector will switch to standby mode after approximately 10 minutes of operation. The resetting procedure should thus be completed within 10 minutes.
1. Insert the power cord plug into the wall outlet and then
press the MAIN POWER switch.
2. Press the POWER button so that a picture is projected onto
3. Press the MENU button to display the menu screen, and
then press the F or G button to select the OPTION menu.
4. Press the ENTER button, and then press the F or G button
to select LAMP RUNTIME.
5. Press and hold the ENTER button for approximately
3 seconds. The confirmation screen, "LAMP RUNTIME
RESET." is displayed and select OK.
6. Turn off the power.
This will reset the cumulative usage time for the lamp
unit to zero.
