IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Please read the following safeguards for your TV and retain for future reference.
Always follow all warnings and instructions marked on the television.
1. Read, Retain and Follow All Instructions
Read all safety and operating instructions before operating the TV. Retain the safety and operating instructions
for future reference. Follow all operating and use instructions.
2. Heed Warnings
Adhere to all warnings on the appliance and in the operating instructions.
3. Cleaning
Unplug the TV from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid, abrasive, or aerosol cleaners. Cleaners
can permanently damage the cabinet and screen. Use a lightly dampened cloth for cleaning.
4. Attachments and Equipment
Never add any attachments and/or equipment without approval of the manufacturer as such additions may
result in the risk of fire, electric shock or other personal injury.
5. Water and Moisture
Important Safeguards
Do not use the TV where contact with or immersion in water is possible. Do not use near bath tubs, wash
bowls, kitchen sinks, laundry tubs, swimming pools, etc.
6. Accessories
Do not place the TV on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, or table. The TV may fall, causing
serious injury to a child or adult and serious damage to the TV. Use only with a cart, stand,
tripod, bracket, or table recommended by the manufacturer, or sold with the TV. Any mounting
of the TV should follow the manufacturer’s instructions, and should use mounting accessories
recommended by the manufacturer.
An appliance and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick stops, excessive force,
and uneven surfaces may cause the appliance and cart combination to overturn.
7. Ventilation
Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation and to ensure reliable operation of the TV and
to protect it from overheating. Do not block these openings or allow them to be obstructed by placing the TV
on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. Nor should it be placed over a radiator or heat register. If the
TV is to be placed in a rack or bookcase, ensure that there is adequate ventilation and that the manufacturer’s
instructions have been adhered to.
8. Power Source
This TV should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you are not
sure of the type of power supplied to your home, consult your appliance dealer or local power company.
9. Grounding or Polarization
This TV is equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug having one blade wider than the other. This
plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try
reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do
not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.
10. Power-Cord Protection
Power-supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed
upon or against them, paying particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point
where they exit from the TV.
11. Lightning
4
For added protection for this TV during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long
periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will prevent
damage to the TV due to lightning and power-line surges.
IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS Continued

How Connections Affect the PIP and POP
How Connections Affect the PIP and POP
To see a picture in the PIP or POP inset, you
may need to select an input source. If the
only input connected is ANT-A, then both
the main picture and the PIP/POP insert
will be from that input source. If other
video equipment is connected, you may be
able to view these input sources as the
PIP/POP insert. When connecting your new
Mitsubishi bigscreen, it is important to understand which main picture and PIP/POP input
sources can and cannot be used together.
Table 1 shows which inputs can and cannot
be used together and the limitations they
may require. To see if DTV 480p, HD or
DVD 480p is being displayed as the main
picture, press INFO on the TV remote control. The on-screen display, figure 1, will
list 480p or HD 16:9 when those signals
are being received. See Operation of PIP
and POP, pages 58-59, for operating instructions. An asterisk (*) displayed after the
signal type indicates that the signal being
received is a non-standard format. A nonstandard format signal may or may not display properly in a PIP/POP inset. See
Operation of PIP and POP, pages 58-59, for
operating instructions.

How Connections Affect the Home Theater IR System
The Mitsubishi Home Theater IR System
Control is a special feature that makes it
easier to use your TV with a Mitsubishi
digital A/V receiver (M-VR700, M-VR800,
M-VR900, or M-VR1000). Once your equipment is properly connected and set up, your
TV and Mitsubishi digital A/V receiver will
change inputs together, to match high resolution pictures with the proper surround sound.
When you change inputs on your TV to
watch different video products, your TV will
send signals via the infrared emitter to your
14
PIP/POP
MAIN
Mitsubishi digital A/V receiver and will also
change inputs to hear the sound from that
product. You will automatically hear the high
quality digital surround sound from digital
products like your DTV receiver and DVD
player, and high quality analog stereo or surround sound from non-digital products like
your VCR.
Part II: Installation
Special Setups: A/V Equipment
VCR: Do not connect the cables to the TV
as directed on page 17. Connect the cables
to the inputs labeled:

it will automatically be used. This procedure is
explained in your A/V receiver’s Owner’s Guide.
•Digital Assignment for DTV: For Mitsubishi A/V
receiver, models M-VR800 or M-VR1000, assign
the DTV digital input to VCR 2. VCR 2 will
now be used to hear the DTV sound. If you
have a Mitsubishi A/V receiver model M-VR700
or M-VR900, assign the DTV digital input to
•TV Speakers: OFF
•A/V receiver: Mits A, if you have Mitsubishi A/V
receiver model M-VR800 or M-VR1000.
•A/V receiver: Mits B, if you have Mitsubishi A/V
receiver model M-VR700 or M-VR900.
•Audio Output: Fixed
•Set the slide switch to the TV position and
follow the programming instructions using the
A/V receiver code 010. Always point the remote

Part II: Installation
Warning: Do not leave stationary or letterbox images on-screen for
extended periods of time. Mix the types of pictures shown.
Uneven picture tube aging is NOT covered by your warranty.
This projection TV uses picture tubes to
project the image to the screen. All
picture tubes age with use. As they
age, their light output is gradually reduced.
Normal TV pictures fill the screen with
constantly changing images. Under these
conditions, picture tubes age at an even
rate across the entire screen. This maintains a TV picture that is evenly bright over
the whole screen. Stationary images or
images that only partially fill the screen
(leaving black or colored bars to fill the
screen), when used over extended periods
of time or when viewed repeatedly, can
cause uneven aging of the phosphors
and leave subtle ghosts of the stationary
images in the picture
Still or stationary images may be received
from broadcasters, cable channels, satellite channels, DVD discs, video tapes,
laser discs, on-line services, web/internet
searching devices, video games, and digital TV tuner/converter boxes. Examples of
these types of images can be, but are not
limited to the following:
Letterbox top/bottom black bars:
shown at the top and bottom of the TV
screen when you watch a widescreen
(16:9) movie on a standard (4:3) TV.
Side bar images: solid bars shown on
each side of an image when watching
a standard (4:3) program on a widescreen (16:9) TV.
Stock-market report bars: ticker running at the bottom of the TV screen.
Shopping channel logos & pricing displays: bright graphics that are shown constantly or repeatedly in the same location.
Video game patterns and scoreboards
Bright station logos: moving or lowcontrast graphics are less likely to cause
uneven aging of the picture tubes.
On-line (internet) web sites: or any
other stationary or repetitive computer style
images.
IMPORTANT NOTES
The normal use of a TV should include
a mixture of TV picture types. The most
frequently used picture types should fill
the screen with constantly moving images
rather than stationary images or patterns.
Displaying the same stationary patterns
over extended periods of time, or displaying the same stationary pattern frequently
can leave a subtle but permanent ghost
image. To avoid this, mix your viewing
pattern. Do not show the same stationary
image for more than 15% of your total TV
viewing in any one week. Display constantly moving and changing images that
fill the screen whenever possible.

• Off: No surround effects. Use this setting
when using an A/V receiver with Dolby™ Pro
Logic Surround, or Dolby™ Digital Surround.
• Simulated Stereo: Your TV will create a

• Stereo: Default setting. The TV will play
stereo broadcasts in stereo and mono broadcasts in mono. The word “Stereo” will be
displayed when you tune to a channel broadcasting stereo.
• SAP (Second Audio Program): Additional
monaural soundtrack that you cannot hear
during normal TV viewing. The SAP signal
might be related to the program you are
watching, such as a soundtrack in a foreign
language, or unrelated to the program you
are watching, such as a weather report. If
a SAP signal is broadcast, the letters “SAP”
will be displayed when you tune to the channel.
• Mono: Reduces background noise, and
should be used when receiving a weak
stereo audio signal. All audio will be played
mono with this setting.

A/V Setting Descriptions: Video
Video Settings
IRIS™ is the Intelligent Room Illumination (light) Sensor. When IRIS™ is
on, your TV will automatically adjust picture contrast and brightness for best
quality (Contrast and Brightness cannot
be adjusted manually).
Brightness provides a slider to adjust
the overall brightness of the picture.
Image Type maximizes the original
camera media; Video or Film. Video
media uses a video camera and is
created at 30 frames per second.
Film media uses a film camera and
is created at 24 frames per second.
Examples of Video media are live TV
broadcast such as news, special events,
or video taped programs. Examples of
film media are motion pictures, madefor-TV movies, and many prime time programs. Filmed media is converted by
the broadcaster or home video company
to 30 frames per second to match TV or
video standards. This conversion can
leave subtle “picture artifacts” or conversion errors. Setting the Image Type to
Film can reduce the picture artifacts and
improve the picture quality.
Color provides a slider to adjust the
color intensity.
Tint provides a slider to adjust the proportion of red to green.
Color Temp (color Temperature) allows
you to adjust how white images are displayed. Your choices are:
• Low 6500K or Low (for DTV): White images
will have a warm cast to them. This adjustment is an average and can vary due to
ambient room lighting, video scene brightness and the TV’s age. The Low 6500K
represents the 6500K industry standard for
NTSC (non-DTV) pictures.
• High: White images will have a cool cast
to them. This setting may provide the most
realistic picture under bright lighting.
• Medium: White images will be balanced
between the Low (warm) and High (cool)
settings.
Video Noise reduces minor noise (graininess) in the broadcast or input signal.
A/V Setting Descriptions: Video
Contrast provides a slider to adjust
the white-to-black level. Low contrast
shows a variety of shades in darker
images, while high contrast shows
darker images more uniformly black and
makes colors appear more vibrant.
Sharpness provides a slider to adjust
the detail and clarity.

Remote Control Functions: Display Formats
This is a wide screen TV (also known as
a 16:9TV). This shape reflects the new
types of images available from HDTV and
many DVDs. There are still many older style
narrow screen images (called 4:3 aspect
ratio) you will encounter. While there will
never be a perfect solution for displaying
a narrow image on a wide screen, Mitsubishi offers several display formats to choose
from.

Display Formats
Press FORMAT on the TV remote control
to cycle through the five available display
formats.
When displaying HDTV (1080i) signals,
the FORMAT control will not operate. All
HD signals will automaticaly be shown
using the Standard format , and will fill
the screen.
Stretched and Zoom formats are not
available durring PIP/POP functions, and
the Standard format will be used instead.
Caution should be observed when using
the Narrow format due to the stationary
gray side bars. Please see pages 23 or
62 for guidelines concerning stationary
images.
60
Standard: This is the full screen format.
HDTV signals will automatically use this
format. This format is also useful to display Anamorphic DVDs that have 1.78:1
or 1.85:1 aspect ratios. Anamorphic
DVDs that have the 2.35:1 aspect ratio
will still display black bars at the top and
bottom. Narrow (4:3) images will be
stretched evenly from side to side.
Expand: This will enlarge the picture,
cropping off some of the image at the
sides, and top and bottom. This is
useful to reduce the letterbox top and
bottom bars of non-anamorphic DVDs or
to correct narrow (4:3) images that have
been stretched in the Standard format.
3
Zoom:This will enlarge the picture, cropping off some of the image at each side.
This is useful to remove or reduce the
black top and bottom bars on anamorphic DVDs with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio.
4
Stretched: (Not available when viewing
480p signals) This format will stretch a
narrow (4:3) image across the screen,
however, there is less stretch in the
center than the sides. This will allow
the entire narrow image to be displayed
across the screen with less distortion
than seen in the Standard format.
5
Narrow:This format will display narrow
(4:3) images in their original shape, and
add stationary gray side bars to fill the
screen.

Part IV: Operation
Warning: Do not leave stationary or letterbox images on-screen for
IMPORTANT NOTES
extended periods of time. Mix the types of pictures shown.
The normal use of a TV should include
a mixture of TV picture types. The most
frequently used picture types should fill
the screen with constantly moving images
rather than stationary images or patterns.
Displaying the same stationary patterns
over extended periods of time, or displaying the same stationary pattern frequently
can leave a subtle but permanent ghost
image. To avoid this, mix your viewing
pattern. Do not show the same stationary
image for more than 15% of your total TV
viewing in any one week. Display constantly moving and changing images that
fill the screen whenever possible.
Warning: Uneven picture aging is NOT covered by your warranty.
Still or stationary images may be received
from broadcasters, cable channels, satellite channels, DVD discs, video tapes,
laser discs, on-line services, web/internet
searching devices, video games, and digital TV tuner/converter boxes. Examples of
these types of images can be, but are not
limited to the following:
Letterbox top/bottom black bars:
shown at the top and bottom of the TV
screen when you watch a widescreen
(16:9) movie on a standard (4:3) TV.
Side bar images: solid bars shown on
each side of an image when watching
62
This projection TV uses picture tubes to
project the image to the screen. All
picture tubes age with use. As they
age, their light output is gradually reduced.
Normal TV pictures fill the screen with
constantly changing images. Under these
conditions, picture tubes age at an even
rate across the entire screen. This maintains a TV picture that is evenly bright over
the whole screen. Stationary images or
images that only partially fill the screen
(leaving black or colored bars to fill the
screen), when used over extended periods
of time or when viewed repeatedly, can
cause uneven aging of the phosphors
and leave subtle ghosts of the stationary
images in the picture
a standard (4:3) program on a widescreen (16:9) TV.
Stock-market report bars: ticker background at the bottom of TV screen.
Shopping channel logos & pricing displays: bright graphics that are shown constantly or repeatedly in the same location.
Video game patterns and scoreboards
Bright station logos: moving or lowcontrast graphics are less likely to cause
uneven aging of the picture tubes.
On-line (internet) web sites: or any
other stationary or repetitive computer style
images.

Lock Bypass Instructions Have Been
Filed for Future Reference
Bypassing the V-Chip Lock
After you set the lock, you need your
passcode to view a V-Chip locked program, view the locked TV, cancel the
lock, or enter the V-Chip lock menus.
When entering the V-Chip Lock menu,
this process deletes your old passcode
and prompts you to enter a new passcode.
Cut along the dotted line and file bypass
instructions in a safe place for future
reference.
Appendix A: Bypassing the V-Chip Lock
Appendix A: Bypassing the V-Chip Lock
If you forget your passcode, you can
view the locked TV without entering your
passcode. This is done by pressing the
number 9 and QV buttons on the remote
TV control at the same time, when your
password is requested. This process
temporarily unlocks the TV.
When changing or deleting your passcode, you must use the remote control
included with this TV. You cannot use
a Mitsubishi remote control from another
component or a “universal” remote.

Cleaning
Service
Normally, light dusting with a dry, nonscratching duster will keep your TV clean.
Use care when cleaning your TV with any
other product. If you want to gently wipe
down your TV with a lightly moistened soft
cloth, first turn off and unplug your TV. You
can add a few drops of mild liquid detergent
to the water for oily dirt.
If you are unable to correct a problem with
your TV, consult your Mitsubishi dealer or
a Mitsubishi Authorized Warranty Service
Center.
DO NOT use any kind of abrasive, liquid,
or spray cleaner on the surface of the
TV screen.
Menus not described and shown in this

you see a menu or display not described
in this owner’s guide, make no changes to
the settings, turn off the TV to clear the displays and return to normal operation. Nonauthorized changes and changes made by
non-authorized persons may void all or part
of the warranty.
