HOW TO SET UP YOUR NEW HITACHI PROJECTION TV
ANTENNA
Unless your TV is connected to a cable TV system or to a centralized antenna system, a good outdoor color TV
antenna is recommended for the best performance. However, if you are located in an exceptionally good signal
area that is free from interference and multiple image ghosts, an indoor antenna may be sufficient.
LOCATION
Select an area where sunlight or bright indoor illumination will not fall directly on the picture screen. Also, be sure
that the location selected allows free flow of air to and from the perforated back cover of the set.
To avoid cabinet warping, cabinet color changes, and increased chance of set failure, do not place the TV where
temperatures can become excessively hot, for example, in direct sunlight or near a heating appliance, etc.
VIEWING
The major benefit of the HITACHI Projection Television is its large viewing screen. To see this large screen at its
best, test various locations in the room to find the best spot for viewing.
The best picture is seen by sitting directly in front of the TV and about 10 to 18 feet from the screen. Picture
brightness decreases as the viewer moves to the left or right of the receiver.
During daylight hours, reflections from outside light may appear on the screen. If so, drapes or screens can be
used to reduce the reflection or the TV can be located in a different section of the room.
If the TV's audio output will be connected to a Hi-Fi system's external speakers, the best audio performance will
be obtained by placing the speakers equidistant from each side of the receiver cabinet and as close as possible to
the height of the picture screen center. For best stereo separation, place the external speakers at least 4 feet from
the side of the TV. Place the surround speakers to the side or behind the viewing area. Differences in room sizes
and acoustical environments will require some experimentation with speaker placement for best performance.
CAUTION: Magnetic fields, such as those of external speakers, may cause the picture to
distort if
they are placed too close to the television. Move the magnetic field source away from
the television until there is no picture distortion.
HOOK-UP CABLES AND CONNECTORS
Most video/audio connections between components can be made with shielded video and audio cables that have
phono connectors. For best performance, video cables should use 75-Ohm coaxial shielded wire. Cables can be
purchased from most stores that sell audio/video products. Below are illustrations and names of common
connectors. Before purchasing any cables, be sure of the output and input connector types required by the
HOOK-UP CABLES AND CONNECTORS

Input Illustration
PICTURE-IN-PICTURE (PIP)
Your Hitachi Projection TV incorporates Dual Tuner technology designed for improved viewing enjoyment. This
Dual Tuner feature allows you to view antenna inputs on both the main picture and sub-picture simultaneously,
with separate tuning control for each. The Dual Tuner can operate with only one input (ANT A only) or two inputs
(ANT A and ANT B).
ANT A input can be viewed as both the main picture and sub-picture simultaneously. ANT B and COMPONENT
Y-CbCr input 2 sources can only be viewed as a main picture. To select between main picture and PIP subpicture tuning, press the PIP CH button on the remote. The blue highlight on the channel display will move with
every press of the PIP CH button. When the blue highlight is on the top channel display, channel tuning is for the
main picture. When the blue highlight is on the lower channel display, channel tuning is for the PIP sub-picture.
This method of picture tuning is the same for one antenna input (ANT A only) and two antenna inputs (ANT A and
ANT B).
The Picture-in-Picture feature is convenient when you want to watch more than one program at the same time.
You can watch a TV program while viewing other programs from the ANT A source or any of the video inputs.

MAGIC FOCUS
Your HITACHI Projection TV has three color projection tubes: one for red, one for green, one for blue. When
mixed together in the proper proportion, the output of these three color tubes can produce any color. To produce
these colors, however, the beams must be precisely aligned over each other so that the colors can be mixed. The
process of aligning these picture beams is called "convergence".
Over a period of time, the picture tubes can drift out of alignment due to normal bumps and vibrations or moving
the TV. If you move your TV, or if, after a time, you notice color rings or halos around objects in the picture, you
may want to converge (align) the colors.
Properly converged, the lines appear white, which is actually a combination of the outputs of the three color tubes.
The output of the green tube is stationary. The outputs of the red and blue tubes can be adjusted. When properly
aligned, the outputs of all three tubes should be directly over each other to produce the white lines.
To simplify convergence, HITACHI incorporates a function called MAGIC FOCUS, which allows the TV to selfadjust. This process will take approximately 90 seconds. If this button is pressed during this 90 second period, no
change in picture quality will occur. After this 90 second self-adjust period, picture quality will be optimum. (Do not
move TV during self-adjust.)
To enter this self adjust mode, you may also select MAGIC FOCUS from the SETUP Menu. However, this will
display a message prompting you to press the front panel MAGIC FOCUS button.
NOTE: Only a momentary press of the MAGIC FOCUS button is necessary to start AUTO DIGITAL
CONVERGENCE. At anytime during this convergence correction process, you may press the
MAGIC FOCUS button to exit the MAGIC FOCUS mode.
Do not press the MAGIC FOCUS button for more than 3 seconds. This is only for extreme cases of
misconvergence and requires assistance from service. If one of the pictures shown below appears on
the television screen, press the MAGIC FOCUS button a second time to exit this manual set up
mode.

CARE OF YOUR HITACHI PROJECTION TV AND YOUR REMOTE CONTROL
DO
Dust the screen and cabinet with a soft cloth.
Clean the screen with a soft cloth moistened in warm water and dry with a soft cloth. A mild soap may be used if
the screen is extremely dirty.
Place your television away from extreme heat, humidity and extremely dusty places.
Remove the plug from the wall outlet if your television will not be used for a long period of time, for instances,
when you go on vacation.
DO NOT
Do not clean your screen or cabinet with strong cleaners, polishes or a chemically treated cloth.
Do not place rubber or vinyl products or cellophane tape on your set.
Do not touch the screen too often.
Do not subject the remote control to shocks such as dropping it on the floor, etc. Physical damage to the precision
parts may result.
Avoid placing the remote control in a high humidity place or getting it wet. Do not leave it on or near a heater.
Excessive heat or moisture may cause the unit to cease operation.
When the batteries run down, remote control operation will become erratic or possibly stop altogether.
Replace the old batteries with two new "AA" size batteries.
Exposure of the viewing screen to prolonged direct sunlight or heat may cause the screen to permanently warp,
resulting in a distorted picture.
RECEPTION PROBLEMS
• IGNITION NOISE:
Black spots or horizontal streaks may appear, picture may flutter or drift. Usually caused by interference from
automobile ignition systems, neon lamps, electrical drills and other electrical appliances.
• GHOSTS:
Ghosts are caused by the television signal following two paths. One is the direct path and the other is reflected
from tall buildings, hills or some other objects. Changing the direction or position of the antenna may improve
reception. Ghosting may also be caused by defects in the antenna system such as unshielded leads or
connecting several sets to the same antenna without using multiple antenna couplers.
USEFUL INFO
- 43 -
• SNOW:
If your receiver is located in the fringe area of a television station where the signal is weak, your picture may be
marred by the appearance of small dots. When the signal is extremely weak, it may be necessary to install a
special antenna to improve the picture.
• RADIO FREQUENCY INTERFERENCE:
The interference produces moving ripples or diagonal streaks, and in some cases, causes loss of contrast in the
picture.
