You can reset the "Filter Time" on your projector and it will clear this error out of the system.

1) Clean Filter
2) Turn the power on
3) Hit the Menu button
4) Once the menu appears choose "Options"
5) Choose "Filter Time"
7) While the time is displayed hold the "Reset" button on the remote for 3 seconds
8) The "Reset" menu will pop-up and choose reset.

That should take care of it.

I have a problem with my Canon LV-7265 Projector. When I turn it on, a message appear "please clean the filter" with a blue windows! Please help me how to fix this problem. I try to clean 2...


You need to go into the settings menu and find the lamp reset and filter reset area, sometimes when you get to the reset part you hold down enter then an additional box may show reset/OK, select OK which should reset the filter hours. Most projectors have the filter reset but sometimes resetting can be difficult to work out. I had an old NEC where you had to hold down the on button of the remote for ten seconds to reset.
Hopefully this helps. There may be support from the manufacturers website plus downloadable user instructions.

Good luck

After turning on the projector, I get a message that says clean the filter and reset the timer. How do I do that? I have cleaned the filter.


Procedure for resetting filter time.
Pressing the RESET button for about 3 seconds displays the FILTER TIME menu. Select the RESET using button to reset the timer. : RESET <- CANCEL Selecting the RESET resets the count of the lamp timer to 0. memo Perform this function only when you have cleaned or replaced the air filter. The filter timer counts the used time of the air filter after cleaning or replacement, to display the messages about the air filter. Incorrect performing causes incorrect operation of the messages. memo About caring for the air filter, please refer to the section "Air Filter".

Lamp and temp lights are flashing while in operation


clean out the projector with canned air. the dust is keeping in the heat and the lamp can't cool down. check the fans, too. check the lamp timer. if it's close to 2000 hours, replace the lamp and reset the timer.

Picture or screen displays multicolours : The screen looks bluish with mixed patches of light yellow,purple and grey colours; as though the lens or bulb were wet. Still getting alerts to clean air filter...


Dont use a damp cloth. Use an air hose or can air if possible.
The color differences may be your color wheel and not your
air filter. You may have to reset the projector to clear the alerts, just hold both volume buttons for 5 seconds. I've found its usually 30 seconds
Hope it helps, good luck

How do I clean the filter?


www.berkley.k12.mi.us/file_repository/id2651vt580%20manual.pdf 
Look at maintanance - Cleaning or replacing the filters (page 49)
Make sure you also clear the "filter hours usage" indicator. It is in the same manual on page 48.

Dvd player to projector


Yes please.
You can connect it either thru the RCA Composite output(yellow) of your DVD or thru the S-Video or even thru the component out(YPbPR) connections. In the component out you would require three RCA cables and would give you the best possible picture.
