Question about BenQ DV3080 30 in. LCD Television

3 Answers

Black screen after approx. 1 second.

I have had this unit (which I paid $2200) for 2 years now. I thought the unit was great and always enjoyed watching movies and HD programs without complaint. Until now. The screen is still beautiful... but always black. I turn on the set and after approx. 1 second the screen goes black with only audio to enjoy. I called BenQ support to no avail other than your warranty is up and you'll have to ship it back for $40, with a $60 estimate charged and an approx. repair charge of $200-$300. Needless to say I was appalled by the response I received and have noticed the same complaints throughout the internet. Unfortunately I have been unable to determine (YET) the cause of the problem. If a TV less than $100 has a 5 yr warranty wouldn't it only make sense that one at $2200 would also be taken a little more seriously on the service-end of things. I guess not... another TV sold for BenQ and nothing but regret and disappointment left for me. Well hey, you can't see that on TV... not on mine anyway!

2002 chevy 3500 van temper mental problem has been happening for approx. 4 years. Turns over fires up for approx 1-2 seconds and dies. For past 4 years if I waited for a couple of minutes and tried again...

quick thought may be a coolant temp sensor not reading correctly for the computer it wont throw a code and will make it hard to start usually bout 25 bucks or less but kinda works like the choke for this app.

Which printer should I use

I don't know anything about screen printing, but is there a reason that you can't use a monochrome laser printer for your Black and white...The cost per page is at least 15-20 times less! Especially if you go with HP and get remanufactured cartridges from a reputable source.

Samsung plasma TV, half screen is blacked out

Well, as per my last posting, I thought I would share. The problem of the bottom half of my 42 inch Samsung Plasma blacked out - meant a trip to the local TV repair shop. I have to say, they were great. I took it in and they were able to fix it after replacing a part - had my TV back in about a week. Cost was approx. $300. This was well worth it, considering how much I had paid for this TV only a few years ago. I had the repair done last month and so far, it's been great. Sorry, but I can't remember the name of the part.

LCD Screen problem

You have a failed inverter circuit. This is a very common fault with BenQ and other LCD monitors. I have seen more FP737 and FP731's and all their cousins in the last 2 years then I care to count.

You will be best to take it to a TV technician and have them do the repair. There are ways to fix it yourself, but the chances of success are not great without a decent amount of electronic knowledge.

Call several places and get approx quotes based on the inverter fault. A lot of TV techs will not work on LCD monitors and is another good reason to call around first.

One final thing, check the manufacture date on the back of the monitor, these normally come with a 3 year warranty and it will be either expired now, or very close to it. If it is still under warranty, then contact BenQ near you to facilitate the repairs.
