Question about BenQ MP610 Multimedia Projector

Mp610 blue/black screen

I just replaced my projector lamp for the 2nd time in two years, no biggie. I started the projector and got the normal startup blue screen, I was happy. While I was fiddling with wires half-way across the room (no wires were hooked up to the projector at this point) the projector made a funny noise, went from the normal blue screen to a black screen and had "Ygb/Bgb" or whatever that combination is in the middle of the screen. I turned the projector off and then back on and got a black and blue screen with a funny shaped blue thing in the middle, all of which was fuzzy. What happened? did the video card just mysteriously go out?

Hi there

If the problem occurs again , you will most probably have to replace the mainboard , as all the inputs of the unit lies on the mainboard itself.

Lamp LED should be lit when the projector is in Standby. However, the problem you are describing sounds like one of two issues. Either the lamp is bad and needs replaced, or there is a power supply fault. If you have tried replacing the lamp already, make sure you reset the lamp counter or the projector may still not function properly.

does the temp warning light come on when the projector shuts off? if so you may also try cleaning the air vent filters and ensure there is proper air flow around the projector. if that checks out then have the projector serviced as the power supply is likely suspect.

You need a smallish phillips head screw driver. Disconnect any power cords.Turn the projector upside down with the front facing you. On the back there is a 3" or so cover secured with one small screw. Remove the screw and the cover. You will see the lamp assembly. On the right is a white cable connection. Disconnect it. On the left is one screw securing the lamp assembly. Unscrew that, then lift the lamp assembly out of the projector housing. Now your options are to replace just the lamp or the whole lamp assembly.

before a lamp blows it draws more current than it usually uses, but since it uses dc, it couldn't blow the ac fuse. but if the regulators on the ballast or power supply were bad, it would blow the lamp and draw ac power, possibly blowing the fuse.

How do you open a BENQ MP610 projector to replace the light? What tool do you use? Thanks Marty

I just replaced my lamp for the same beamer. Took me a while to figure out how, but if you know how, it is easy. Turn the beamer on its back. In the middle, you will see a black rubber (small), it covers a hole and a screw is in the whole. Pull the small bblack rubber out. Unscrew the screw. A small cover will come loose. And there is the lamp, You have to pull out the power cable, and than only one little screw that mounts the lamp to the inside of the beamer.

It's easy!
Hope you will succeed,

Benq MP610 does not project any picture

OK , then this is positively a Mainboard problem.

Check if this unit is still under warranty as the BenQ MP Series came out with a standard 3 year warranty and in which case will cover the replacement of this part.

Hi Big Dogg

Replace the lamp and reset the lamp timer.

Lamp timer can be reset by holding down the up arrow key and then following the easy on-screen instructions.
