Question about BenQ PB6100 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Everything is red.

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.

Re: Everything is red.

Hi guys

The colour change can only be one of two things :

1. Faulty Cable

2. Faulty Mainboard

Must warn you that a Mainboard is quite expensive to have replaced.

My projector won't project anything. the computer recognizes the projector, but the projector does not recognize the computer. also when i turn on the projector the benq logo doesn't show.

Disconnect all inputs to the BENQ and power on. Do the lights come on as per normal operation. Does the lamp come on when the power button is pressed. Does anything show when the menu is selected.

My BenQ PE7700 stops working after a couple seconds.

the lamp is running too warm from inability to cool down. clean out the dust with canned air and check the fans. the temp sensor may need to be replaced, as the heat may have desroyed it.

No Picture

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.

Hi cvijr

This can only one of two things - the lamp or the Ballast ( lamp's powersupply )

Normally the PB6100/6200 lamp's has got markings on the lamp itself when this flickering occurs.

Take out the lamp by unscrewing the lamp door at the bottom. Then look for any vein like looking marks in either black or white. Or even a bubble at the bottom end of the lamp's shaft.

If you can spot anything out of order , then the lamp will need replacement.

If not , then you'll know for sure that it is the Ballast that is in need of either repair or replacement.

Part Numbers :

Ballast :5D.J8612.011

Lamp : 60.J8618.CG1

Hope this is of help and thanks for using Fixya !

Pip position

Hi there

The PIP ( picture in picture ) is only to determine where the Menu block itself will show on your screen.

Try the Vertical and Horisontal shift in the Menu Options.
