I'm a ASP Repairer for BenQ Projectors and it sounds like your Packlight Pipe Module took a blow ( it is a very fragile part )
Quickest way to check if this is well the problem - switch on your Projector and tilt the unit from side to side - if the cracked bits move you can be sure that it is your problem.
Very cheap to have it replaced.

Very simple - go back to the dealer you bought this from and tell them the CD was damaged when you opened the box. They will give you a new one on the spot.

My solution sounds dumb, I had the same issue. Took the lamp cover off the bottom. The screws were loose holding in the lamp. Maybe they heat and expand and eventually work their way out and the lamp doesn't make good contact. Just tightened mine up, the unit would power off after 45 minutes prior. Been on now for 5 hours, no trouble.

i have the same problem, a clear image, the the projector shuts down, turn the fan on, and "lamp" blinks.
i returned my projector to viewsonic service center, they told me to change the lamp.
the problem is that a lamp is very expensive!

SOURCE: Fan not working
I have the same problem. I open the unit and replaced the fan. I found the computer chassis fan compatible (60MM X 60mm) from E-Bay for $5.00. It is now working find again. This is for those who will encounter the same problem of the fan not working.
