Question about Eiki LC X986 Multimedia Projector

2 Answers

Our Eiki LC-986 projector has worked flawlessly for at least 3 years. Last week, the projector shut itself down after approximately 30 minutes of use. This happened at least 5 times, so we replaced the bulb Friday. Two days later, the projector ran perfectly for about 3 hours, then shut itself off again. This was repeated later in the day, and it ran approximately 30 minutes before shutting down. Any suggestions?

It sounds like it is overheating. Are the fans all working? If so, try opening the casing and blowing all the dust out with a can of air from Staples/Office Depot. If the fans aren't working you may need to replace them.

How can you view the amount of bulb hours for an Eiki LC-986?


The manual for your projector is found here:
http://www.eiki.com/resources/resourcedownload.ashx?filename=/ownersmanuals/om_x986.pdf

My assumption since it is not specifically stated on the location of the counter is it should be located close to the option to reset the counter. I would start here and look around above and below this option.

According to pg 39 the steps to reset the counter are the following:

Turn projector on, press MENU button and ON-SCREEN MENU will appear. Press POINT LEFT/RIGHT button(s) to

move a red frame pointer to SETTING Menu icon (refer to page 37).

Press POINT DOWN button to move a red frame pointer to "Lamp counter reset" and then press SELECT button.
Message "Lamp replace counter reset?" is displayed. Move pointer to [Yes] and then press SELECT button.

In few minutes after turn on the projector (Eiki Lc-xnb4m) , it shut off automaticlly. and i connect notebook with the projector ,no any reaction. i don't know how to operate it?


are any of the leds flashing? could be overheating. blow out the dust with canned air. if the lamp is old, it could be that it needs to be replaced. if the fans go out immediately as well, it could be the power supply.

The projector switching off after 30 seconds


check the following :
1.does the lamp glow
2.do u get the connected image
3.if yes does the screen show temperature or overheat
4.if yes then one of the cooling fans do not work properly & hence the unit turns to standby & goes into protection
if no 1 does not happen, then check the lamp physically,it should not show melted or breakage.
if the lamp seems ok, then the ballast is defective!

hi,

This is 2000 Hours, 160 Watts, UHP lamp. dont keep it on always.Check the usage and then replace the lamp. It's better to turn off the projector after each class.

The lamp is around $400.00 for Eiki LC-SD15.
