Topic:   Projector screen size

Greetings to everyone, this is my first topic on this forum so if I posted in the wrong section or if I said anything against the politics of the forum i apologize. So I got my projector from a friend that doesnt want it anymore and instaled it at home. The screen size is about 98" with every adjustement set up to be as big as possible. I got a "problem" tho the flatscreen i got is for 108 inches as it looks not as good as i thought with the 98" my projector displays. Is there anything i can do to increase the display size for about 7-9"? Is there any other lens for the benq w1000+ I can buy online to increase the size? Thank you very much in advance and Im happy to be here.
Topic:   Bulb won't turn on

Hello, Newbie here. I just bought a bulb replacement for this projector, I decided not to go with the whole lamp for various reasons. I replaced the bulb, seemingly placing everything back the way it was while removing it. When I turned it on the bulb doesn't light up at all. The power button will blink for a couple of minutes then shows a red light on the Lamp indicator. So I know I did something wrong with replacing the bulb, but what? Is there anything I need to be careful of when replacing the bulb? I tried putting the old bulb one back in and still nothing. I did try to blow out dust with compressed air. Also I did touch the bulb with my hands, and I later learned that oil from skin can burn out the bulb. But I never notice the bulb flash in a burn out when turning on, nothing lights up. Any suggestions? Thanks, Eric

Topic:   Lighting

I recently purchased the BenQ W1000+. It's my first projector and I intend on using it in my room where I have complete control over the lighting. My question is, what is the ideal lighting for a home theatre setup? I own a HDTV and have a soft light behind the TV to reduce eyestrain. Is some sort of ambient lighting necessary to reduce eyestrain for a home theatre projector setup or is it best to watch in the dark?
Topic:   Compatable Ceiling Mount?

I'm replacing my current BenQ projector a PE7700 and considering a new projector. The BenQ W1000+ is on the top of the list. Question is, will my existing ceiling mount work for the new projector? How do you tell what the mounting looks like on the bottom of a projector?
