Question about BenQ PE8700 Multimedia Projector
Hope this is not getting too old for you? I appreciate your help!
Spoke with BenQ again, still not helpful. They insist that it is the cable or something else and that there is no firmware upgrade for this or the PE 8720. Said the only reported problem was DVI to HDMI and that there was no fix at all for that.
Don't know what to do here???, I'm going to try and test it with another cable to see if it might be the cable but I bought a real high quality cable so I'm pretty sure that's not it and I know the cable isn't too long either.
This has been a real pain, I have this great projector but can't get it to work like it should.

SOURCE: BenQ PE8700 DVI problem
All that needs to be done is a firmware upgrade.
This can however only be done by a BenQ Approved Service Provider because if the person doing this makes a balls-up the Projector will be dead as a doornail.

unless you dropped it, there is no damage to the sensor. it might just be dirty. blow the dust out of the projector with canned air. if there is physical damage, just replace it. if you're sure the remote works but none of the sensors do, it's a main board problem.

I have the same problem, however, my lamp wasn't replaced. Projector working great, just started today. Filter cleaned, reset lamp time, neither helped. Any luck yet?

There's more then one fan inside the projector. I think I counted 3 when I opened mine up. Two are easy to get to, the other is underneath. on theleft side looking from the front. You have to take off the back surround cover in onder to remove the top cover. The top cover slides back and lifts up. Be careful because there's a wire harness running to the top cover control panel. Disconnect it then you have access to the fans. Wish mine was that easy to repair.
