Flickering dots on Benq PB6200 projector.

it's not the lamp. if you've replaced the cords and still have the problem, reset the settings to factory default to make sure the resolution matches. if still not ok, there may be an issue with the main board.

Replacing the lamp

We contacted BenQ's technical service people from the toll free number on their website. They had us do the same thing the manual said to do and of course the lamp hours would not reset. We had to send the projector to them and they responded that our mother board went and that it needs to be replaced. They've quoted us around $180. What happened to us was that we didn't change the bulb when the warnings came up on the screen. It isn't explained anywhere that if you wait til you get to 3000 hrs without changing the bulb that you could screw up your machine, but it's kind of looking that way. If I were you guys, I would make that call to their tech support and see what they tell you.

Hi Terence

Yes you have to reset the lamp timer.

How to do this :

1.) Hold in the up arrow key on the Projector for 5 seconds , a on-screen display will appear in the top left hand corner.

2.) It will read : Press left or right and then Menu or Auto.

Just follow the steps and the lamp timer will be reset.

Thanks for using Fixya !

Lamp goes out after about 20 minutes of operation, does come back on after pressing the power button again, but not for long.

how old is the lamp? If old then at end of life and projector shuts down automatically to avoid damage. If new bulb reset lamp in OSD menu
