I recently bought a BenQ PB6100 used off of flea bay. When I plugged in the projector to my up converting Philips DVD player it could not find it using the component input and just kept searching. It found it using the RCA video plug and S-video cable but I need the component input for my computer which did not work either. I had two cables so I tried them both for the sake of eliminating the possiblity of a bad cable. Any suggestions? Am I missing something?

Ok. It still might be the bulb, if not make sure it is plugged in to a working outlet. Also, if that doesn't work unplug, wait 1 hour, push the power button (with it unplugged) then plug it back in. If nothing fixes your problem, it is the power supply.
Hi I am Vortashpossibly a loose plug or the bulb housing is not secure and the cut off switch is not contacting .. loose fuse .. dry joints o loose component .. one thing is for sure keep shaking it
and your going to kill your bulb ?. During the arc on the lamp it builds up carbon deposits if they break loose they get hot in the bulb under working conditions against the glass and sometimes fracture it ?. don't shake your your unit unless you can afford to replace this at between $400 and $800 i bet that repair would be a more economic solution hope this helps Regards Vortash
Use a standard "video cable" that is used to connect a desktop to a monitor. Your lap-top will also have a similar video out - this is a blue colored outlet jack on your ap-top with three rows of 5-pin holes. The BenQ also has a similar blue receptor jack almost next to the place where you plug in the mains power cable on the rear of the unit.
