How to Change Language in BenQ Projector?


We often change, update, and personalize many settings with our gadgets and devices.

This scenario also applies to your projectors. 

One of the most common settings changed by customers is the language. 

You could’ve bought your BenQ projector in another country, and the default language is not in your mother tongue.

You want to learn a new language and test yourself by applying the new language to your devices.

Or, you want to check what languages are available on this projector, and which are not available or accessible in your country or region. 

All you need to do is to grab your remote control and click a few times in your system set up menu. And voila! You’ll have the language updated in no time.

We’re listing down some of the bestseller BenQ projector models here, since some steps might vary, depending on the model. We’ve lumped them into several categories – the classic and pioneer models, the home theater projectors, large venue projectors, and portable ones.

FAQs

I want to include closed captions or subtitles while I play the content. Will it also follow the newly-selected language?

Most BenQ projector models use the language most commonly used in your area. Best to check further on BenQ’s website for further clarifications.

Now that you have this fixed and updated, going through the menu and further personalizing your projector will be a breeze.
