Topic:   color flicker/distorted in BenQ w1070

hello! i have a BenQ W1070 projector with about 1300 lamp hours (about 18 month old) at first, it worked great. after about 600 hours the colors start to get a little distorted. similer to pictures, but back then it was barely noticeable! couple of days ago i used a compressed air can (like i use for my PC) to dust of the projector. ever since, everything starts fine but after about an hour of working time, the color get really distorted and starts to flicker. sometimes it even turns itself off and a red "lamp" indicator on the unit turns on. is there any hope left? what can be causing the problem? thanks in advance!

Topic:   How can I watch a 3D movie file on my PC with my Benq w1070?

I have 3D blu rays, that's simple enough- put the 3D blu ray in my PC and start Power DVD 14, and boom- it'll be in 3D. What if I just have a 3D movie file? How can I watch it in 3D? Currently when I click on the 3D movie file, it shows a 2D image side by side, and it opens up in VLC Media player. Do I need to open it up in Power DVD 14, and then adjust some sort of settings? Do I make additional changes on my projector's settings? Not sure exactly how to do this.
Topic:   Are these calculations correct?

I've been wanting to setup a projector in my apartment for years. I figure now's the time, and have decided on the BenQ W1070. I'm trying to figure out how big the picture will be on the wall. Using the calculator below, I've set: - zoom to 1.00x - aspect ratio to 16:9 - throw distance to 140 inches The calculator says the picture will be 93 inches wide and 52 inches tall. That sounds wayyy too big. Am I doing something wrong? Other than moving the projector closer to the wall, how can the image be made smaller?
Topic:   New to projectors and looking for advice

Hey everyone, I was mulling over the idea of getting a new T.V around 55" or so. I then stumbled into looking at projectors and have almost decided that I must get one, aside from some concerns and questions I am hoping to get answered. First things first, about the room. It'll be going in a bedroom but I will be moving it to a living room eventually. The room is fairly light with light walls and a white ceiling, I intend to buy blackout blinds because the normal ones allow light to reflect off my T.V during the day which is annoying! So they should darken the room a bit but even in the dead of night the room is never pitch black, albeit it is dark and would be dark enough for a projector, at least I think so. But bearing all this in mind would a white or grey screen be better? Main use is for PS4 gaming, I want the best gaming setup I can achieve. Also occasional films but gaming is the number 1 priority. I sit about 8' back from a 40" T.V atm and intend to display on a 80" screen, Would the distance/screen size be ideal to get the best quality and the full immersive effect without having to look about the screen to see everything going on to much? Projector I've been looking at is the Benq w1070, it has excellent reviews all round and seems like a great buy for beginners, is £500 for this better that a T.V around the same budget? Also found this screen today: Cheap and looks nice in a picture someone attached in their review (they were also using the BenQ). Just really looking for any help and advice from people with more experience than me as I've never considered projectors until this last week or so. Thanks for any help.

Topic:   BenQ W1070 display issues

Hey guys. Looking for some input here. A few months ago i purchased this wonderful projector and have a nice setup now. Picture is crisp, clear, and bright. The only issue i am having is that when i display my Bell Fibe PVR on it, almost every channel does not fill the screen entirely, and most are different from one to the next. And to be clear, i don't mean that the screen isn't filled, i mean that it's full screen except for a thin black bar at the top (not anywhere near what you would get with a BR disk) but just enough to leave anywhere from 1-2cm, enough to be annoying. All other sources such as ATV2, RaspberryPi2, and PC through HDMI work fine and all scale to 100% of the screen. Everything is going through my HTR, so i don't believe it is that that is causing the problem. Anyone else experience this? I'll try to post pictures later. TIA
