Question about BenQ PE8700 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

PE8700+ Hello! I have a Pe8700+ with just over 1000 hours on the bulb. In start up the power goes on and the unit tries to start up, but after a few tries the lamp light flashes red 3 times. There is no light projection at all. I tried removing the bulb and reinstalling to no avail. In looking @ the bulb, it doesn't look like it is burnt out. I called Benq and they said it would need a new bulb. I am concerned it may be something else and don't want to have to buy a bulb and then find out it is something else, may just buy a new 1080p projector instead. Please assist? Thanks Darren

IT IS YOUR BULB,A NEW BULB WILL COST ABOUT£300 TO £400 POUNDS NEW 1080P PJ A GOOD DEAL MORE.
UP TO YOU BUT IF YOU GO FOR A NEW PJ LOOK AT THE PANASONIC 2000E, IT IS ONE OF THE BEST YOU WILL FIND AT ITS PRICE POINT £2000.

HOPE THIS HELPS.

In a benq PE8700 DLP projector, the lamp bulb comes out in a casing, held with 3 screws. All is good here. I remove it and I want to open the casing to ONLY replace the bulb + cable...cuz it's much...


Buy the new casing if you can not disassemble the case then it may not be serviceable. If you can disassemble the casing then you must find the correct bulb, risky proposion. spend more and get the correct casing replacement part.

New bulb installed and it takes 10 plus minutes to start


Exchange the lamp under warranty...
You've tried almost everything else.
It's not that uncommon to experience "infancy failure" with a brand new lamp.

If the problem persists with the replacements replacement then I would suspect the Lamp power supply (Ballast) is failing.

Lamp replacement


Hi there

Make 100% sure that your lampdoor is closed properly because there is a little swith on the lamp door that supplies the power to the mashine ( only when pushed in ) You'll see on the lamp door there is a pin that stands out - that pin pushed in the switch when the lampdoor is closed thus supplying power to rest of the components.

Benq PE8700 - Won't Power Up


Hi there

Trust me that the Mainboard needs replacement.

I am very familiar with the PE8700's as I am a ASP Technician for BenQ.

Visit www.BenQ.com and look for the link to your country - you should be able to allocate a Approved Service Provider.

Must warn you that the Mainboards on these models are quite expensive.
