Question about BenQ PB8240 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Projector only displays Black and White / No color images.

I have had the PB8240 for about 2 years. Recently it has started to display only in black and white. I have checked all the connections and everything looks good. My lamp has about 1300 hours and I am running in economy mode. I have checked the manual and cannot find any reference to this problem.

The problem is the color wheel. It may have broken or motor stopped on clear. Either way the image will remain unchanged just without color. It will need to be sent in for service. Not an unusual problem for BENQ. I have had 3 that have come apart after making a loud whirring sound. Good luck getting someone with BENQ to help they are horrible when it comes to service. Buyers beware!!!

LCD projector not displaying color only black and white

Did you ever see color on this projector?
It could be the composite input cant detect the "color burst" 3.58 mhz signal for chroma.

Have you tried a different input?
That could help you track down what the problem may be.

Thin vertical line appears on projector

I have found that vertical lines that suddenly appear from projectors are due to poorly connected cables. Sut off your projector and wait for the fan to go off. Then unplug the connectors from the computer to the projector and secure them again, making sure to go all the way. Hope this helps.

Black and White video on S-Video output

The Concept of S-video is Splited Video Signal (Luminance for black and white, Chrominance for colors), in your case the luminance is ok but there is no chrominance out. Expert technician is required: Check for dry solder at the s-video out outlet. Good Luck Toufic Malek
