Question about Eiki LC-X986 Projector

1 Answer

My church has an EIKI LC-X986 projector that turns on for about 2 seconds then shuts down. The lamp is brand new and the filters are clean. I know the signal is working as I can see it for those 2 seconds. So, power is fine, signal is fine, filters are fine, and lamp is fine, but I do notice the main fan does not spin up when powered on nor at all during the few seconds it's up and running. I'm thinking this 2 inch fan is the problem. I've been able to open the projector and unplug it from the projector and asked Staples / Radio Shack if they carry such a fan but with no luck. So, is there anything else I need to look at as well as how do I go about getting a replacement fan for this unit? The fan is the one that is attached to the door that you open to gain access to the lamp. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

Have a close look at the fan and check if there is a make and model number on it.
If you cant see anything, unscrew the fan and check on the hidden sides.
see what voltage it is. ie 12v dc or 24v dc

Ring the EIKI agent and ask them how much for a replacement rear fan, the EIKI part number, and also if they can supply the manufacturer of it and their part number.

Check that the fan connector is OK, and the socket where it plugs in.

Check that the fan turns freely.

report back what you find

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.

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.

I have the Eike LC-X986 projector and it keeps turning off every 20 minutes. Can't figure out what's wrong. Please help.


if the time is always about the same, then blocked air filters should be cleaned. if there is no sufficient air inflow, temperature inside will become above maximum rating and PJ will shut down.

Eiki LC-X986 - How do I get to the filter to clean them


At the side of the carrying handle you can pull out two grey plastic frames, these are the air filters, If just dry dust, clean with air or vacuum cleaner. If smoke/ oil clean with alcohol and put them back.
This model has no filter hours counter, so no need to reset

Eiki lc-nb3s projector... fan comes on but no lamp then fan shuts down after about 5 seconds. Green "Ready" light and Red "Lamp" light are on... Have tried the reset button and cleaning the filter... no...


Please check on of these solutions :

1:Remove the lamp from the projector. Ensure that it has no cracks, discoloration or "smoky" appearance.

2:Try removing and reseating the lamp, or to try another lamp.

3:Reset your lamp timer. Most projectors have no way of knowing if you physically have replaced your lamp. They rely on the user resetting the lamp timer

4:Pull the lamp back out of the unit, give is a brisk shake and reseat the lamp. Occasionally there is some buildup on the lamp contacts or filament during manufacturing.

5:Are the input and output vents blocked or obstructed in any way?

6:Are the filters dirty or clogged? Most manufacturers will recommend filter cleaning on a monthly basis depending on usage

7:Remove any extension cords, power strips and/or surge suppressors. Many current model projectors will not even try to ignite the lamp if they detect drops or fluctuation in voltage supplied to the unit. This is a safety feature to reduce stress on the lamp.

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.

My projector doesn't stay on. what's wrong?


either the lamp cannot strike (meaning a ballast or lamp issue) or there the fans are not up to speed to sufficientl;y cool down the lamp and therefore shut down to avoid damage.

even if the filters are clean, you will still need to blow the dust out of it with canned air. may be overheating. otherwise, sorry to say, it is the ballast.
