It is quite likely that the lamp is defective. The whirring sound is possibly the fan doing its cool down cycle. If the lamp has failed, it is likely that you may need a ballast unit as well as a lamp.

Benq w1000 project not turning on


Look at the manual page 34, for the indicator messages. I suspect it's the same problem I have (which I haven't had formally diagnosed yet!), which I believe is a defective fan. My projector had been making a really loud noise on startup, which varied in length and volume. Recently the projector has taken to turning itself off after being on for about a minute, and the power light flashes green, with the temp and lamp lights flashing red.

I have a 55" sony


According to the manual (you can see it here) page 122 that describes 3 red flashing lights:

"The lamp cover is not attached securely. When you secure the lamp cover, the POWER / STANDBY light flashes in red and the LCD projection TV enters the standby mode (see page22)"

Page 22 says:

"... if the POWER / STANDBY light flashes continuously, this may indicate the display unit needs servicing..."


Most DLP displays make use of a "color wheel". These small motors spin at many thousands of RPM. They often begin to make scratching sounds when they are beginning to fail. Some manufacturers make it difficult to change yourself - and others make it pretty easy.

I hope this was at least a good starting point for you & good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Will not turn on, red light flashing next to the menu button


if the fans don't turn on, they may be bad and needs replacing or rewired. if the fans turn on but not the lamp, the colorwheel may be bad (listen for a high-pitched whir when you switch it on. if no whir, replace the colorwheel). if the colorwheel is ok, replace the lamp.

My bulb went out in my x1a so i replaced it now it


is the led on the top of the projector blinkng at all? if there is no led lit, the fuse on the power supply may be blown or the power supply itself needs replacing. turn the projector on. you should hear the fans and a high-pitched whir. if you don't hear that whir or it sounds like a noisy motor, the colorwheel needs replacing. if it sounds good but no light, make sure you have the correct lamp. the x1a takes the sp-lamp-009 lamp. it should have 2 white wires, each at opposite ends of the plug. if you have a lamp with a red wire and a white wire, you have a lamp for an x2. also make sure the lamp door is closed completely. if the door is closed (hitting the switch), the lamp is correct, the led is green, and the sounds are good and it still does not light, the ballast is bad and needs replacing.

Light went out


then it may not be the lamp, but make sure you have the right one (sp-lamp-021). also check to see if the colorwheel is moving. turn the projector on and listen for a high-pitched whir. if you don't hear one, the colorwheel needs replacing. and the lamp won't light without the colorwheel spinning.

Unit powers on but green light flashes and no projection


if you hear a high-pitched whir, the lamp or ballast may be bad. if you don't hear a whir, the colorwheel is bad. the lamp won't turn on without the colorwheel.

No light come on from the projector


Thats the projector telling you that you need to replace the lamp. Lamps usually lasts for about 2000 hours so if you had it for a while you may need to replace it.

www.froogle.com and enter your make and model or go to www.projectorcentral.com and find a few retailers in the US that sells lamps.

good luck
