BenQ PB6100 Component input problem

I recently bought a BenQ PB6100 used off of flea bay. When I plugged in the projector to my up converting Philips DVD player it could not find it using the component input and just kept searching. It found it using the RCA video plug and S-video cable but I need the component input for my computer which did not work either. I had two cables so I tried them both for the sake of eliminating the possiblity of a bad cable. Any suggestions? Am I missing something?

Re: BenQ PB6100 Component input problem

You can get high defintion by connecting a cable that is component video source on one end your (dvd) and VGA (to projector)on the other. This cable is available from cables to go.

Ok. It still might be the bulb, if not make sure it is plugged in to a working outlet. Also, if that doesn't work unplug, wait 1 hour, push the power button (with it unplugged) then plug it back in. If nothing fixes your problem, it is the power supply.

My Benq pb6100 projector needs a ''shake'' on switching on to run

Hi I am Vortash possibly 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

How to hook up BenQ PB6100 Digital Projector to a lap top?

Use a standard "video cable" that is used to connect a desktop to a monitor. Your lap-top will also have a similar video out - this is a blue colored outlet jack on your ap-top with three rows of 5-pin holes. The BenQ also has a similar blue receptor jack almost next to the place where you plug in the mains power cable on the rear of the unit.

I think the problem has to do with the videochip component. Perhaps it went misconfigures and need to be flashed. Iwouldn't know how to do this, though.

In any case the problem has nothing to do with your motherboard, because this symthom points to internal problems rather than PC gear hardware.

BenQ 8700 projector solution

Hi Rick

The upgrade is the same one used for the BenQ PE8720

Whoever told you this obviously did'nt know this.

You'll be needing Flashloader and the RS232 cable that came with the Projector.

It is absolutely cheeky of them to suggest that you should just use the Component input for all your applications on this Projector.

Make sure they understand that this was a top of the range Projector when you bought it and that it is not a good enough answer.

Super video and composite wont work with progressive dvd

Hi there

Right next to the Mainboard sits the inputboard where all your video inputs go into. This small board might need replacement.

Very cheap to have replaced.
