Question about BenQ PB6110 Multimedia Projector
If the lamp on any BenQ model is at it's life end there will be a on-screen prompt that will warn you about the hours.
I think in my 3 years of working on BenQ's , I've only had one problem like this that ended up in the lamp being the problem.
99.9% of the time it is either the Ballast ( lamp's powersupply ) or the lamp's blower fan.
Hope this is of help.
F.Y.I. The lamp can be reset by holding in the up arrow key for a couple of seconds until the on-screen display shows you step 2&3.
