Question about BenQ W100 DLP Projector
There is something getting in the way, between the lamp and the lens, I guess, that is visible, as a shadow. This shadow is not covering the complete image. I thought it was that circle in front of the lamp (filter I guess), so I rotate it manually, the shadow shift to another position; I can't manage to make it disappear, because but it is shifting every time I move the projector. What can I do? Is there any repairing guide? Many thanks

This model is now out of production. It was sold as one of the bottom end of the "DLP" projectors. It's basically a "good cheap" model using a 1.5cm DLP mirror. And being as such, over the year the "thermal cycling" has most likely caused the alignment to shift. It could have collect some dirt in a quadrant of the lens too. That's possible too. Being a manual focus, there is at least no "auto focus mechanism" to worry about. That can be a pain to adjust. You could fix this yourself with some luck. It either has three screws to adjust or it has an ellipictal ring arraignment and you'll need a two correct size spanner wrenches. If it was in front of me I could tell you right away. In any event, if you turn either one of the screws the wrong way it can get worst or if you don't have the correct spanner wrench to adjust it either you can be more trouble. Plus you need to do this with a light source "on" so you can see the effect. Your best choice in this case is to go to a camera repair shop. One that doesn't send their repairs out if you can. (you have more control over the repair) It's an "adjustment and cleaning" and shouldn't be that expensive to do. Please let me know the results when you decide.

it might be dusty enough to hold in the heat. it needs a good cleaning. use canned air. if you still have an issue, the fans might be running too slow or the thermister (temp sensor) may be faulty. sometimes if it gets too hot in there, the thermister needs to be replaced, too.

if the cables are new, reset the settings to factory default to make sure the resolution matches. if there ia still an issue, replace the main board.
