Just got to the end of a film and my new BenQ PE5120 with just 8 hours on the clock powered off with a load of crackling noises coming from the power socket at the back of the PJ. Without thinking I wiggled the power socket and switched it back on, thinking that it would be less harmfull to the bulb to switch it on quickly so as to prevent the bulb from cooling. There was no abnormal shutdown lights displaying it just powered up as normal (strange!) It still works OK and seems none the worse for wear but after a correct shutdown and back in standby the power socket started crackling like crazy again. Seems I have a duff kettle lead! tried a spare one which has a much tighter fit and all is OK. Gave me a real fright I can tell you, I am worried silly now that it will have been damaged. Blooming typical ! I try and treat it with kid gloves and this happens. Kind of like new car syndrome! You'll get one scratch on the paintwork in the entire life of the vehicle and it is during the first week that you have it! I really hope it's OK, but I just wondered if I should have just let it cool down of it's own accord rather than switching it straight back on.
