I recently powered up my BenQ 6100, to find that the picture is fine, with normal clarity, except the picture has a very reddish tint to it. Enough where it looks as if I've put red Saran Wrap over the lens. I've looked in the settings for color correction, but I am unable to find anything that helps at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated. -Matt

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.
It might be a possible CCD defect , as usually the symptoms are odd colours in a photo hence your red tinge in your photos.Its quite expensive as it labour intensive to fix .Rather just buy another camera or you can try to solder another ccd from anotehr camera > look on ebay for parts (not recommended precise alignment needed).
you camera is experiencing CCD image sensor failure, very common problem with Canon cameras, Canon offer free repair, follow this link: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=221&modelid=10462&keycode=2112&id=29819
Although normal room lights (tungsten lights) appear white to our eyes, their light is actually much "warmer" than daylight, giving a reddish or orange color to pictures. This happens with digital and film cameras. To prevent or lessen this reddish or orange color:
If your digital camera has a selectable White Balance mode (check your camera's User's Guide) and you are not using the camera or external flash, set the White Balance mode for "Tungsten" light.
If your pictures are reddish even when you use the camera flash or external flash, the room lighting is overpowering the flash. Try setting the White Balance mode for "Tungsten" and continue to use the flash.
If your camera does not have a selectable White Balance mode, use the camera flash or external flash when taking pictures in lighting that makes your pictures turn out reddish or orange.
If you can, turn down or turn off one of the room lights (without making the room too dark), or move your subject so that it is not being hit directly by the room lights.
If you can, when taking pictures in the daytime, try opening any drapes that might be covering windows. Letting in natural daylight improves the color quality of the lighting.
