The fan 2 is behind the bulb I believe. Our tv just went out with the same fan 2 code. I am sure your tv is fixed by now but this is for other people. I pulled the back of the tv off and powered the tv on and noticed the left little fan came on but the right big fan behind the bulb did not. You will have to remove the control board on the right and the bulb to remove fan. Plus when I finally pulled the fan out I noticed that it was dragging compared to the little fan on the left (when you spin them). I am a heavy equipment technician and due to my experience I believe I am correct.
You need to install a video card with an HDMI jack then run the cable from the video card to the HDMI input on the TV.
I have a video capture card with HDMI input as well as a video card with an HDMI output jack, I run a HDMI cable from my satellite receiver to my video capture card then output to the TV via the HDMI jack on the video output card.
It's probably overheating. Buy a can of compressed air (same kind that's used for cleaning computers), then blow out all the ventilation ducts on the back of the TV. I did this about a month ago and have not had any more problems.

My HL-S5687W DLP won't turn on.
I have tried to turn it on with the remote and the button on the front of the TV. None of the LED lights are lit on the front of the TV either. I have disconnected the power cable for about 10 minutes and tried a different outlet and still nothing. Any ideas to what the problem may be?
Unfortunately, there is no way to do what you want. You need to have a cable box because that's the only way to convert the signal if you weren't using a cable card. So you'll need to use a cable box from your cable provider.
