a few words about HDTV
Your purchase of this upgradeable Mitsubishi HDTV puts you at the beginning of a revolutionary new way to watch television. Beginning in the Fall of
1998 digital broadcasting will begin on a limited basis in selected major cities
in the United States. By the year 2005, all stations must have 100 percent of
their programs available on their DTV channel. Programs will still be available through current analog (NTSC) TV sets at least until 2006.
Digital signals are sent over the airwaves, the same way as the broadcast
stations you currently receive. The similarity ends here, as digitally sent
pictures are of a much higher quality than analog signals. Each Major (main)
channel will have several Minor (sub) channels.
When DTV is available in your area, you can purchase an optional Mitsubishi
HDTV receiver. This allows you to buy the most advanced receiver technology when your area of the country is ready to receive digital signals.
Because digital television technology is so new, the way programs will be
broadcast and the services that will be provided are subject to change.

about your remote control
This TV’s remote control has four “layers”: TV, VCR, DVD/CABLE and
AUDIO. Each layer can be used to operate a different component in your A/V
system. You choose the layer you want to use by setting the “select” switch
across the top of the remote control.
When you first receive your remote control, the TV layer is set up to operate
your Mitsubishi TV and the VCR layer is set up to operate your Mitsubishi
VCR. The DVD layer is programmed to operate your Mitsubishi DVD player
and the AUDIO layer is programmed for your Mitsubishi A/V receiver.
You can set up layers in the remote control to operate a cable box, some
digital satellite receivers, a non-Mitsubishi VCR, a Mitsubishi laserdisc
player, Mitsubishi A/V receiver or a compact disc player.
The VCR layer can be set up to operate a non-Mitsubishi VCR. The DVD
layer can be set to operate a Mitsubishi DVD player, cable box, digital satellite receiver, VCR or a Mitsubishi laserdisc player. The AUDIO layer can be
set up to operate a cable box, digital satellite receiver, laserdisc player, or a
Mitsubishi A/V receiver. The TV layer can be set up to operate the volume
and mute controls of a Mitsubishi A/V receiver.

• The selected menu item is indicated by yellow text and outline
for the icon.
• The on-screen menus will turn off if no item is selected within 2
minutes.
• Some on-screen menu items must be set before other items are
available. For example, “Set the Timer” will only be possible if
“Clock Time” and “Set Day” have been set.
• For ease of use, all menu selections are made the same way:
ADJUST up/down moves up or down to your menu choice,
After making a menu choice, ADJUST right moves you to the
selection field where you can enter or change your selection.
ADJUST left moves you from the selection back to the title field
While in the selection field, ADJUST up/down selects the
option.
• You can exit the on-screen menus in two ways:

Chapter 2: Operating Your TV
The Setup Menu
The first step is to make your SETUP menu choices. If the television is
relocated or there is a power loss, or you add components you may need to
make your SETUP menu choices again.
The SETUP menu is where you will memorize the channels you can receive,
set the Clock, select how your television will work with other AV equipment
(AV Connection) and choose the Language (English or Spanish), for on-screen
programs and menus.
Your television is also capable of receiving Digital broadcast signals (DTV)
when used with a Mitsubishi external HDTV receiver. NOTE: Some broadcast stations in major U.S. cities will start limited DTV broadcasting as early
as Fall, 1998.

Memorizing channels
TV GUIDE Plus+ users do not need to memorize channels for ANT-A. TV
GUIDE Plus+ will do this automatically. See the TV GUIDE Plus+ Operating Guide. However, you should still memorize channels for ANT-B and
DTV if those inputs will be used.
You can use the menus to automatically memorize the channels your TV can
receive and skip the unused channels. Once channels are memorized, you
can scan through them using the channel up/down keys on the remote control
or front control panel. Added channels will be labeled, “In Memory”, as
shown below. Channels not added will be labeled “Not in Memory”.
You will need to select the input you wish to memorize channels for. AIR and
DTV are for broadcast stations that use antennas. CABLE is for stations
using a cable or cable box.
The inputs and channels available for memorization are:
INPUT
ANTENNA A AIR
ANTENNA B AIR
ANTENNA A CABLE
ANTENNA B CABLE
DTV
CHANNELS THAT CAN BE MEMORIZED
2 through 69 (not available if TV GUIDE Plus + is activated)
2 through 69
1 through 125 (not available if TV GUIDE Plus + is activated)
1 through 125
1 through 99
CHANNEL up/down controls will work differently after channels have been
memorized. After memorizing, use the channel controls to advance sequentially to the next memorized channel. Use the number buttons to select
individual channels.
⁄Important: If you memorized channels using the Air (non-cable or standard)
Antenna option, your TV can receive antenna channels 2-13 (VHF)
and 14-69 (UHF). If you memorized channels using the Cable
option, your TV can receive cable channels 1-125.

5) using the ADJUST (
æ
4) using the SuperQuickView™ function to scan through any of nine

) keys in TV GUIDE Plus+ SURF screens
6) using DTV Channel Guide (when available)
⁄Important: To change channels faster, use either of the following procedures:
• Enter three digits for every channel number, using zeros where
needed. For example, enter 004 to view channel 4 and 028 to
view channel 28, or
• Press the ENTER button after selecting the number of the
channel. For example, press 4, then press ENTER (in less than
three seconds) to view channel 4.
• For DTV channels you will need to select a major and minor
channel. For example, enter 04 (major), press CANCEL/SUB (a
dot will appear after the first numbers) then 11 (minor). It will
appear as: 04.11. If you press ENTER/EXCH after selecting only
the major channel, you will see the first available minor channel.
• If only one or two keys are used to select the ANT A or ANT B
channel number, the onscreen display will appear and remain
visible for three seconds if no more keys are entered. The TV
will then tune to the selected channel.
• If you have local cable channels that TV GUIDE Plus+ does not
list, you can still select these channels by using the number keys
and enter them into one of the the SuperQuickView lists.

Creating the A/V Connection (Home Theater)
The AV Connection allows you to customize the way your TV works with
other audio and video components. Full use of the system and components
will provide you with a completely integrated home theater experience.
The features you can adjust are:
• AV Network: for use with selected Mitsubishi VCR’s. The
adjustments are: Off, Basic or Active
• External Audio System: when the TV is being used with an
AV Receiver, Audio Receiver or Stereo System. The adjustments
are: Yes or No. To hear the audio through the TV speakers,
select No.
• AV Receiver at Input 1: for use when an AV receiver is
connected to Input 1, to ensure your best audio and video
performance. The adjustments are Yes or No.
• Volume Changed by AV Receiver: to vary the audio output
level from the TV to the AV Receiver using the TV’s Volume
Control, select No. If you have an AV Receiver that cannot be
controlled using a remote control, select No. Select Yes to have
the TV output a fixed audio output level to the AV Receiver.
Setting choices vary, depending on which components are connected to the
TV. Below is a chart of common combinations and the recommended settings.

Creating the A/V Connection (Home Theater) (cont.)
Active A/V Network with a Mitsubishi VCR
The Active A/V Network is a system that Mitsubishi developed to make it
easier to operate many Mitsubishi products with one remote control. The
Active A/V network will automate the TV’s input selection and the playback
of Mitsubishi VCRs into a single command.
You will gain even more benefits if you have a Mitsubishi VCR equipped for
the Active A/V Network. The Active A/V Network allows you to perform
many of the commonly used features of your system at the press of just one
button, as explained below.
before you begin, be sure you have:
• Connected an A/V Network cable from the Active A/V Network
terminal of your TV to the “A/V Network IN” terminal of your
VCR.
• Connected your VCR to INPUT-1 of your TV.
• Set your TV A/V Network setting to Active or Basic.
• Set your VCR’s remote control settings to VCR.
• Turned your VCR video mute setting on.
If you have installed TV GUIDE Plus+ on your TV, you can use the VCR
Plus+ feature to control your VCR for recording.
what the Active A/V Network does
The Active A/V Network makes it easier and faster to use the VCR Play
command or display your VCR’s menu. When using the Active A/V Network,
you should always point your remote control at your television.

TV when you have connected the TV to a Home Theater Receiver, Audio
Receiver or other stereo system. This will prevent potential mismatches
between the TV speaker volume. To use “Volume Controlled by AV Receiver”

NO the speakers in the TV will be turned on again. To prevent
damaging the TV speakers and to prevent a sudden increase of
volume, make sure you have turned down the TV’s volume first.

Using the Closed Caption Decoder
Closed captioning was initially designed so that those with hearing impairments could more fully enjoy viewing television. However, closed captioning
can be used in other ways, such as:
• helping children learn to read
• learning a foreign language
• using the television without disturbing others
There are two types of captioning that broadcasters can send: standard and
text.
Standard captioning is related to the program that is being shown. Standard captioning usually follows the dialogue of the characters on-screen and
displays in a small section of the screen when the broadcaster is sending the
closed captioning.
Text captioning often contains information such as weather or news. Text
captioning blocks out your view of the program you are watching.
Your TV can decode four different standard captioning signals and four
different text captioning signals from each TV station. However, each station
may be broadcasting only one or two captioning signals, or none at all.
When setting the decoder you can choose to display:
• captions when muting (On if mute)
• one of four standard captioning signals (CC1, CC2, CC3, CC4)
• one of four text captioning signals (Text 1, Text 2, Text 3,
Text 4)
• turn the captions off (Off)
If you select “On if mute,” the standard captioning signal (CC1) will appear
whenever you use the MUTE button.
If you set the decoder to a “standard” caption setting or “On if mute” and tune
to a broadcaster that is not sending a caption signal, no captions will appear.
⁄Important: The content of captions are determined by the broadcaster. If your
captions show strange characters, misspellings, or odd grammar, it
is not a malfunction of the television. If you cannot display any
captions on the screen, please keep in mind that not all broadcasts,
video tapes, or laserdiscs supply closed caption signals. Additionally, captions might not appear if you are playing a video tape that
is worn or deteriorated, or starting to play a laserdisc or video tape
from still or search mode.

Adjusting the convergence (cont.)
Your Mitsubishi Projection TV has three picture tubes with large diameter
lenses which are aligned to project light beams on the screen. Each picture
tube projects only one color: red, green or blue. Adjustments are required to
converge the three color images on the screen. During production, your
television was carefully adjusted to properly align these colors.
As a special feature, you have the ability to adjust the color convergence,
should you think that the red and/or blue light beams are out of alignment.
The green beam acts as a fixed reference for aligning the red and blue beams.
There are two types of convergence: Static and Advanced. Static converges
the whole screen at once, Advanced aligns 64 individual adjustment positions.

This section provides descriptions of each video and audio setting, and explains how to adjust them for the A/V Memory. (See “Selecting the A/V
Memory,” in this chapter for more information.)
descriptions of video settings
IRIS™ is the Intelligent Room Illumination (light) Sensor. You may choose to
set it on or off. When IRIS is on, it will automatically optimize picture
contrast and brightness for the room lighting, and the brightness and contrast cannot be manually adjusted.
Contrast provides a scale that controls the level of white-to-black in the
picture. When the contrast is low, you will be able to see the variety of
shades in the darker images on the screen. When the contrast is high, the
screen’s dark images will appear more uniformly black, but this will also
make the colors on the screen seem more vibrant.
Brightness provides a scale that controls the overall brightness of the
picture.
Sharpness provides a scale that adjusts the detail and clarity of the picture.
Color provides a scale that determines the intensity of the color.
Tint provides a scale that adjusts the proportion of red to green in the picture. This determines the delicate tones of color.
Color Temp (Color temperature) allows you to set how the TV will display
white images. Your choices are “Low,” “Middle” or “High”.
•With the Low setting, white images on-screen will have a warm cast to
them. This setting represents the 6500˚K industry standard.
•With the Middle setting, white images on-screen will be balanced between the above warm and cool setting.
•With the High setting, white images on-screen will have a cool cast to
them. This setting may provide the most realistic picture under bright
lighting.
Auto Picture for Antenna A and Antenna B, senses the tuner signal
strength and adjusts color and sharpness to optimize the picture for the
signal conditions. The default setting for this feature is off. When turned on,
sharpness and color cannot be manually adjusted.

Adjusting the sound
This section contains descriptions for each audio setting and explains how to
adjust them for the A/V Memory positions.
descriptions of audio settings
Balance adjusts the level of sound between the left and right speakers.
Adjust the scale until the sound seems to come equally from both speakers.
Treble enhances or reduces high frequency sound.
Bass enhances or reduces low frequency sound.
Level Sound allows the TV to automatically equalize the volume level of
programs that contain significant sound level differences for example, from
regular programming to commercials. To receive the best audio fidelity for
music programs, you may want to turn this setting off.
Listen to for Antenna A or Antenna B allows you to determine how your TV
will receive a broadcast audio signal and play back the sound that you hear.
You can set this function to “Stereo,” “S.A.P.” or “Mono.”
•For almost all situations, you should choose Stereo. With this setting,
the TV will play stereo broadcasts in stereo and mono broadcasts in
mono. If a channel is broadcasting in stereo, the word “Stereo” will
display when you tune to that channel.
•Some TV stations will broadcast second audio program, or S.A.P. signal.
This signal is an additional monaural soundtrack that you can’t hear
during normal TV viewing. The S.A.P. signal might be related to the
program you are watching, such as a soundtrack in a foreign language,
or it might be unrelated; for example, a weather report. If a channel is
broadcasting the S.A.P. signal, the letters “SAP” will appear on-screen
when you tune to that channel. Choose “Listen to: SAP” to hear the
S.A.P. signal.
•Use the Mono setting if you are receiving a weak stereo audio signal.
This setting will reduce background noise. The TV will then only play in
mono, even if the program you are watching is in stereo.

Customizing the A/V Memory settings (cont.)
Listen to for DTV allows you to determine which language your TV will
receive a broadcast in, if that language is available for the program. The
possible choices are:
•
•
•
•
English
French
Spanish
Portuguese
• German
• Italian
• Other
Listen to is not available for INPUTS
PIP AUDIO OUT allows you to hear sound that is being broadcast through
the displayed PIP. Stereo, SAP, Mono or DTV languages, as available, can be
heard through an amplifier or wireless headphones connected to the PIP
AUDIO outputs (on the back of the television). Once connected, if the PIP is
not displayed you will be able to hear the main TV program through the
headphones.
If Antenna B is in the main picture and the PIP, PIP AUDIO OUT will
perform the same function as “Listen To”.
SURROUND creates simulated stereo and surround effects. You can set this
setting to “Off,” “Simulate” or “Surround sound.”
• Select “Off” if you do not want to use any surround effects.
• Select “Simulate” if you are watching a monaural non-stereo
program. Your TV will create a simulated stereo effect.
• Select “Surround sound” if you are watching a stereo program.
Your TV will create a simulated surround effect, making the
sound seem to extend around and behind you using the TV’s
internal speakers.
⁄Important: To turn the speakers on or off, use the “A/V CONNECTION’’ menu.
Set the surround setting to “OFF” when using an A/V receiver with
Dolby® Pro Logic Surround, on Dolby Digital Surround.

Caution and care
æWarning: Don’t leave stationary images on-screen for more than 10 minutes.
These images can scar the picture tube, causing permanent damage to the
TV. Some examples of stationary images are:
• stock-market reports
• station logos (especially bright ones)
• video game displays
• shopping channel displays
• the television’s own on-screen displays
⁄Important: If you plan to place speakers next to the TV, make sure they are
magnetically shielded. Ordinary speakers will cause distortion in the picture
due to their strong magnets. This distortion, however, will not harm the
picture tubes.
For maximum enjoyment and safe operation of your Mitsubishi TV, please
read IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS, pages 3 and 4 of your Owners Guide,
very carefully and apply them properly.
Cleaning
Normally, light dusting with a non-scratching duster will keep your TV
clean.
If you want to wipe down your TV, turn it off and unplug it. Then, wipe it
gently with a soft cloth slightly moistened with water. You can add a few
drops of mild liquid detergent to the water for oily dirt.
DO NOT allow liquid to enter the TV through the ventilation slots.
DO NOT use strong or abrasive cleaners.
DO NOT use spray liquids or cleaners directly on the TV’s surface.
DO NOT scrub or rub the TV harshly. Wipe gently.

APPENDIX
Procedure for Bypassing the Parental Lock
Cut along dotted line and file after reading.
After you set the lock, you will need the secret code in order to:
• view a locked channel,
• view the locked TV, or
• cancel the lock.
If you forget the code, you can view the locked TV without entering
the code. To do this, simply press the buttons on your remote
labeled “RCL” and “9” at the same time whenever your secret code
is requested.
⁄Important: Unlocking with this procedure is only temporary. To cancel the
lock completely, follow the procedure below:
† Turn on your TV. If the TV requests your secret code, press the
“RCL” key and the “9” key on the remote control at the same
time.
¢ Press the MENU key to view the main menu. Use the ADJUST key to select “Advanced Features”. Press ENTER/EXCH.
£ Use the ADJUST key to select “ Parental Lock”. Press ENTER/
EXCH.
® At "Passcode", use ADJUST right to move to the passcode
number field. Press the "RCL" key and the "9" key on the
remote control at the same time, instead of entering the code.
© The message "Enter New Code" will appear. Press CANCEL to
remove the code and cancel the lock. Or to choose a new code,
press ADJUST left to go back to the "Passcode" field and then
ADJUST right to go to the code selection field where you may
enter your new 4 digit code. Press ENTER/EXCH to lock in
your new code, then press the HOME key or press the MENU
key three times.
⁄Important: You must use the remote control included with this TV. You
cannot use a remote control from another Mitsubishi component
and you cannot use “Universal” remotes from other manufacturers.

authorized MITSUBISHI Audio/Video Dealer, should it prove defective by reason of improper workmanship and/or material:
a. Parts. The lenticular (i.e. front picture) screen and/or the Diamond ShieldTM is warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for a period of
30 days. All other parts are warranted for a period of one year from the date of the original purchase at retail. We will repair or replace, at our option, any
defective part without charge for the part. Parts used for replacement are warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period.
b. Labor. For 30 days after the original purchase at retail, we will repair or replace, at our option, the lenticular screen if it proves defective. For all other
parts, we will provide the labor for a warranty repair by an authorized MITSUBISHI service center without charge for one year from the date or original
purchase at retail.
c. Notice. To obtain warranty service, you must notify an authorized MITSUBISHI service center of any defect within the applicable warranty time period.

calling MCEA at the address and telephone number provided below.
b. Warranty service will be provided in your home or, if required, at an authorized service shop, provided that your television is located within the
geographic territory customarily covered by an authorized MITSUBISHI service center. If not, you must either deliver your television to an authorized service
location at your own expense, or pay for any travel and/or transportation costs the service center may charge to and from your home. Actual service labor will
be provided without charge.
c. Proof of purchase date from an authorized MITSUBISHI dealer is required when requesting warranty service. Present your sales receipt or other
document which establishes proof and date of purchase. THE RETURN OF THE OWNER REGISTRATION CARD IS NOT A CONDITION OF WARRANTY COVERAGE. However, please return the Owner Registration Card so that we can contact you should a question of safety arise which could affect
you.
2. THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER damage caused by: modification, alteration, repair or service of the product by anyone other than an authorized
MITSUBISHI service center; physical abuse to, or misuse of, the product; operation in a manner contrary to the instructions which accompany the product;
freight damage; or any damage caused by acts of God such as lightning or fluctuation in electrical power. This warranty also excludes all costs arising from
installation, adjustment of user controls, external antenna systems, service of products purchased or serviced outside the U.S.A., initial technical adjustments

AND OF FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE ARE EXPRESSLY LIMITED TO A TERM OF ONE YEAR.
4. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL MCEA BE LIABLE TO PURCHASER OR ANY OTHER PERSON FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, WHETHER ARISING OUT OF BREACH OF WARRANTY, BREACH OF CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE.
5. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, or the exclusion or limitation of incidental, special, or consequential damages,
so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.
6. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
