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
For added protection for this TV during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long
period 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.

the only audio connection needed between it and the TV.
12. DIGITAL AUDIO OUT
This output sends Dolby Digital or PCM digital audio to your
digital A/V surround sound receiver. Analog audio from
analog channels and devices is converted by the TV to
PCM digital audio. If you have a digital A/V receiver, in most
cases this is the only audio connection needed between the
TV and your A/V receiver.
13. IR Emitter NetCommand®
IR Emitters connected to this jack are used by the TV’s
NetCommand system to control external IR remote controlled analog devices such as cable boxes, VCRs, DVDs,
satellite receivers and audio receivers. This system also
coordinates with the TV Guide On Screen® system to
control cable boxes and to activate the record feature of
your VCR.
18
Chapter 1. Television Overview
CableCARD™ Technology
CableCARD is a nationwide system standard that allows
your local cable TV provider to supply you with an access
card customized to your account. This card allows your
TV to receive, decode, and unscramble the premium
digital channels included in your cable TV subscription
without the use of a cable box. When you move to a new
cable provider’s area, return the CableCARD to the original
cable provider and get a new card from your new provider.
Please note that CableCARD is a relatively new technology
and your local cable provider may not currently be offering this service. As time passes, this system will become
broadly supported by most cable providers.
The CableCARD system is unidirectional, meaning your
cable provider can send updates to the TV, but the TV
cannot send signals back. As a result, certain advanced
and interactive digital cable services, such as requests for
video-on-demand and pay-per-view programs, a cable
operator’s enhanced program guide, and data-enhanced
television services may require use of a set-top box
instead. For more information, call your local cable operator.
Digital cable channels authorized by the CableCARD are
available on the Firewire® IEEE 1394 network and can be
shared by other products on the network. You may be
unable to record or copy some digital programs, however,
because of copy restrictions set by the content or copyright owners.
Using a CableCARD™
Power on the TV and insert the CableCARD into the
CableCARD slot with the top of the card oriented as indicated by CARD TOP . When the initial screen displays, write down the information that appears and have it
ready when calling your cable provider.
In order to start cable
service for this device, please contact

for assistance.
Moving Through Other CableCARD Screens
In addition to CableCARD menus, other CableCARD
application screens may display and require you to make
additional selections. When using these screens on your
Mitsubishi television:
• Blue text denotes a link to another screen. Press ENTER
to move to the next application. Screens without blue
text contain no links.
• You cannot move backward through the links. To exit
the CableCARD system, press EXIT. The CANCEL key may
not work with some CableCARD screens.
All information on these application screens is provided by
your local cable company. Contact your cable provider if
you have any problems with the application screen displays.
IMPORTANT
Most CableCARD screens show only status or
diagnostic information and do not allow you
to make changes. These screens are meaningful only to your local cable provider.
IMPORTANT
To use a CableCARD, connect the primary
incoming cable to ANT 1/MAIN on the TV.

Carries audio and video on a
single cable.
Note: Only some TV signals are high-definition signals. To view
high-definition programming from your cable or satellite
provider, you must subscribe to the provider’s high-definition
service. Some over-the-air broadcasts are in high-definition
and can be received with a high-quality antenna suited to
your location.
Audio Connections
There are two types of audio connections used on this TV. Refer to the table below.
Audio Connection
Figures
(not to scale)
Additional Information
Left/Right Analog
Stereo Audio
RCA-style connectors usually colored white for left and
red for right stereo audio. For monaural sound (all speakers playing the same sound), use only the white connector.
Digital Audio (Coaxial)
RCA-style connector usually colored orange. Use to send
digital audio from the TV to your digital A/V receiver for
surround-sound effects. Usually the only audio connection required between the TV and the A/V receiver.
21
Chapter 2. TV Connections
Digital Video and Home Recording
The table below will help you decide which type of connection to use for digital video. Digital video comes to your
home in a compressed state, whether received on recorded media (e.g., disc) or broadcast over the air, over cable, or
via satellite. Some compressed digital video is available for recording as noted in the table.
Connection Type into the TV
Effect on Home Recording
HDMI or DVI
Compressed video is converted to
uncompressed form by an external device
such as a cable box, satellite receiver, or
DVD player before it is sent to the TV on an
HDMI or DVI cable.
IEEE 1394 (FireWire®) Connections
Your TV can receive and decode digital
channels, MPEG2 compressed digital video,
and Dolby Digital audio.
You cannot record the resultant uncompressed video sent to the TV
via HDMI or DVI.
You can record compressed digital video either
• on compatible digital recorders as digital signals using IEEE 1394
connections
• converted to analog signals and recorded as standard-definition
composite video from the MONITOR OUT jack
You may be unable to record some programming because of copy restrictions added by the content owners.
HDTV Cable Box or Satellite
Receiver with Component Video

Required: RCA component video cables, left/right analog
audio cables.
A coaxial splitter, available at most electronic supply
stores, may be required to complete this installation.
1. Connect the cable from the outside cable or satellite service to CABLE IN or SATELLITE IN on
the cable box or satellite receiver. See your device’s
owner’s guide for instructions and cable compatibility.
2. Connect RCA-type cables from the Y Pb Pr outputs
on the HDTV cable box or satellite receiver to Component on the TV back panel, matching the
colored connections.
3. Connect left (white) and right (red) audio cables from
the HDTV cable box or satellite receiver to Component /AUDIO LEFT and AUDIO RIGHT on the
TV back panel.
4. Optional: To allow use of the Split Screen feature with
channels from ANT 1 and the cable box or satellite
receiver, connect the incoming terrestrial antenna or
cable service (not satellite) to ANT 1/MAIN on the
TV back panel. A coaxial splitter, available at most
electronics supply stores, may be required to complete this installation.
Note: To receive the benefits of digital surround sound, connect the digital audio output from your cable box or
satellite receiver directly to your digital A/V receiver.

Chapter 2. TV Connections
IEEE 1394 Devices
Compatible IEEE 1394 Devices
Compatible A/V devices include some, but not all, cable
boxes, D-VHS VCRs, A/V discs, and future products. Some devices may have IEEE 1394 connectors but are not
compatible with the TV. Areas of compatibility to consider
are:
4-pin connector
6-pin connector
6-pin-to-4-pin adapter
1. Digital Video Signals
The TV can decode MPEG2 video as provided by cable
boxes and some camcorders. Many camcorders provide
DV video, which the TV cannot decode. Connect a DV
camcorder to the TV using analog audio plus composite
video, S-video, or component video, or use HDMI audio/
video. Other types of digital video, such as PC video
provided by some computers, must be decoded by the
source device and sent to the TV as analog video, S-video,
or DVI/HDMI video.
If you wish to connect a 6-pin device to the TV (such as a
camcorder), and the device is designed to receive electrical power from another 6-pin device, there are several
ways to provide electrical power to the device:
• Connect the camcorder directly to the household AC.
• Use the camcorder’s battery for power.
• Connect the camcorder directly to another 6-pin
device in the network that can provide power.
2. Digital Audio Signals
When received with video signals, the TV can decode
Dolby Digital signals and MPEG audio signals. Other
types of digital audio as provided by some digital recording devices, such as MP3 audio and DTS audio, cannot be
decoded by the TV when received over IEEE 1394 connections.
There are two connection methods for IEEE 1394 devices. Use
the method that fits your network of audio/video products.
The TV may not be able to pass incompatible digital audio
signals on the coaxial digital audio output. These signals
may pass to other devices, however, on the IEEE 1394 cable.
3. Digital Control Signal
The TV can serve as the control center for IEEE 1394
audio/video devices, such as VCRs, A/V Discs, tuners,
cable boxes, and amplifiers that are compatible with the
following IEEE 1394 control standards.
•
•
EIA-775. Designed for tuning devices such as cable
boxes, allowing the device to send simple graphics. This standard does not, however, allow the TV to
control the cable box by IEEE 1394.
AV/C (Audio Video Control). Designed to provide
basic controls such as play, stop, channel selection,
and volume, as appropriate for the device.
Four-Pin and 6-Pin Connections
There are two different types of connectors used for IEEE
1394 terminals and cables: a 4-pin and a 6-pin type. Both
types send the same digital audio, video, and control
signals, but the 6-pin connectors can also supply lowvoltage electrical power to connected devices. This TV
uses only 4-pin type connectors.
A 6-pin connector cannot be connected directly to a 4-pin
jack, and vice versa. To connect a 6-pin device to a 4-pin
device, use a 6-pin-to-4-pin adapter or adapter cable. These cables are available from electronics and computer
stores.
Connection Methods
Direct Device-To-Device Method
The IEEE 1394 interface allows you to chain devices,
unlike audio and video connections that require you to
connect each individual device directly to the TV. For
example, you can connect your D-VHS to your 1394 A/V
disc and then connect the 1394 A/V disc to the TV. The
resulting IEEE 1394 chain allows you to add more devices
to the chain. You will see an icon for each device in the
TV’s Input Selection menu and can also send information
from any IEEE 1394 device to other compatible devices.
"7%JTD
%JHJUBM
7$3
57
Hub Connection Method
The IEEE 1394 standard allows you to use the TV as a hub
within the audio/video network. Each device can send
information, which may include audio and video, to any
other device in the network.

Tips for Connecting IEEE 1394 Devices
IEEE 1394 Camcorders
•
•
Control Functions. Connect the camcorder to the
TV’s IEEE 1394 jack on the rear of the TV and test
using the TV’s remote control to operate the camcorder. If your model does not operate properly, use
the camcorder’s control buttons instead.
•
MPEG Camcorder. If you are unable to play back
over the IEEE 1394 interface, use the analog audio/
video connections described in chapter 2, “TV Connections.”
DV Camcorder. Connect the camcorder using the
analog audio and video connections described in
chapter 2, “TV Connections.”
•
•
•
•
•
Do not loop the last
%JHJUBM
device in the chain back
%7%
to the TV. When the
%JHJUBM
device chain is looped,
7$3
the TV may not be able
57
to work with the other
devices.
Place devices that have only a mechanical (twoposition) power switch at the end of the chain or leave
the power switch in the on position. When turned off,
IEEE 1394 signals may not be able to pass through the
device to other devices.
Place devices with the slowest communication speed
at the end of the chain. Sometimes the communication speed is marked near the IEEE 1394 connector
with an “S” number. The higher the number, the faster
the communication speed. This TV has a communication speed of s400. Devices with slow communication speeds can interfere with IEEE 1394 signals from
faster devices. When setting up a digital recording
between a faster device and a slower device, make the
slower device the source and make the faster device
the recorder.
Use IEEE 1394 cables 15 feet or less in length
between devices.
This TV is an IEEE 1394a device. It can be used with
an IEEE 1394b system when an IEEE-1394a-to-1394b
convertor is used. 1394b systems are capable of
greater distances and multi-room applications.
The TV can recognize a maximum of seven IEEE 1394
devices at any one time.

IR Emitter NetCommand® and TV
Guide On Screen
5. Place any unused ends behind the devices to prevent
stray signals from reaching the IR sensors.
3. Position the emitter end with the emitter bulb facing
the remote control sensor. The bulb emits infrared
light in a cone-shaped pattern. Place the bulb far
enough from the sensor to allow the cone pattern to
reach the sensor.
The IR sensor is usually behind the plastic window
of the front display panel. It is sometimes visible
with the aid of a flashlight and is normally a round or
square cutout behind the plastic. If you cannot see
the sensor and the device’s Owner’s Guide does not
specify the location, you can find it by following these
steps using the device’s remote control:
a. Hold the remote about one-half inch from the
front of the device. Starting from one end of the
display window plastic, press the POWER button.
b. If the device does not respond, move the remote
control one inch toward the center and try again.
c. Repeat this until the device responds.
d. Note this location and then start over from the
other end of the display window plastic, repeating
until the device responds again.
The remote control sensor is somewhere between
these two positions. This is usually enough accuracy for placement of the IR emitters.
With some devices, the emitter works better
facing downward from the top of the device. Experiment if needed.
4. Secure the emitter ends in place using double-sided
tape.
IMPORTANT
Position IR emitters so that each device’s
sensor “sees” the signal from only one
emitter. Otherwise, a device receiving signals
from multiple sources (remote controls, IR
emitters) may not respond at all.

The NetCommand system uses emitters connected to
the IR EMITTER jack to control other devices such
as VCRs, DVD players, cable boxes, and satellite receivers. This control system is shared with the TV Guide On
Screen system.
2. Run the cable for each of the emitter ends under,
alongside, or over each device to be controlled so that
the emitter end is in front of the area where the remote
control sensor is located.

Chapter 2. TV Connections
Helpful Hints for NetCommand Connections
Q. My VCR (or other device) does not have two sets of stereo audio outputs. How can I connect this device’s
audio to both the TV and the A/V Receiver?
A. You need to connect the device to the TV and then make changes to the A/V receiver setup.
1. Connect the VCR’s audio and video to the TV; connect the single set of stereo audio outputs to the TV only.
2. Perform the procedure for setting up a device connection. See chapter 3, “TV Setup,” and the section entitled
“When You First Connect a Device.” NetCommand IR Learning is optional.
2. Press INPUT to display the Input Selection menu, highlight the VCR’s icon, and press ENTER to select the VCR.
3. Press MENU to open the Main menu, highlight the NetCommand icon, and press ENTER.
4. Under AV RECEIVER SETUP, confirm that the text box displays None.
5. Press EXIT.
After performing these steps, the TV will automatically pass the audio signal to the A/V receiver.
Q. I have both the TV stereo audio output and TV digital audio output connected to the same input designations on my A/V Receiver. How do I switch between analog audio and digital audio?
A. In most setups, analog audio is also output as digital audio, so no switching is required, and there is no need to
connect the analog output. In some circumstances, however, you may also need analog audio from the TV. For
example, MP3 audio is only output in analog format, so you must connect the TV’s analog AUDIO OUTPUT to the
A/V Receiver if you want to hear MP3 audio through the A/V receiver. Refer to your A/V Receiver user’s guide to
find out how analog/digital audio switching works.
Q. The front panel of my A/V Receiver is too tall or too convex for the IR emitter signal to reach the remote
control sensor of the A/V Receiver. What can I do?
A. There are several possible solutions.
• Mount the IR Emitter on the top, front edge of the A/V Receiver over the remote control sensor. Use tape to
secure it in place.
• Mount the IR Emitter on the underside of the shelf above the A/V Receiver (if the A/V Receiver is in a cabinet). Use double sided tape to secure it in place.
• Some small stick-on emitters from other manufacturers may be compatible with this TV’s IR Emitter jacks. These may be used instead of the supplied IR Emitters.
Q. I occasionally need to see the menu from my A/V Receiver. How can I connect it to the TV for this purpose?
A. Connect the A/V Receiver’s video output to an unused input on the TV and then use the A/V receiver’s remote
control to display the menu.
1. Connect the video output of the A/V Receiver to an unused input on the TV; Input 3 on the front panel is the
most convenient. The Auto Input Sensing screen will displays when the TV detects the new connection,
2. Press EXIT to close the screen without naming the input.
3. Select Input 3 (or other input you used) from the Input Selection menu: press INPUT, highlight the Input 3 icon,
and press ENTER.
4. Press the MENU key on the A/V receiver’s remote control to open the A/V receiver’s menu.
5. When finished, disconnect the A/V receiver’s video input from the TV.
Q. I have a high definition receiver I would like to connect and it also has an S-video output I would like to be
able use as well. Is there any way to connect this receiver both ways?
A. Yes, this item will appear twice in the Input Selection Menu. Just add this unit once using the COMPONENT
or HDMI input and once using one of the S-Video inputs. Mitsubishi suggests that you connect stereo audio
outputs with the S-video input only.

Initial NetCommand® Setup
What You Need to Know About NetCommand
•
•
•
•
•
NetCommand setup is optional.
NetCommand operates by sending signals from the
TV to your other devices via the IR emitters, telling the
devices to play, record, change inputs, adjust volume,
change channels and many more functions. All this
is accomplished with the TV’s remote control and the
slide switch left in the TV position.
The IR “Learning” feature of NetCommand allows the
TV to learn the remote control signals for your A/V
devices.
NetCommand® can control IEEE 1394 devices by
sending control signals over a FireWire® cable.
You can choose the level of NetCommand control for
your home theater.
Limited Setup. Perform a limited setup if you:
Want NetCommand to control only a few
devices, such as the TV, a playback device
(like a DVD player), and a cable box. With this
setup, you can use the TV’s remote control to
operate these devices.
Want to use TV Guide On Screen® to control
your cable box and VCR and/or A/V disc. After performing this setup, you can use the
TV’s remote control to operate these devices.
Want the ease and flexibility of NetCommandcontrolled recording, with seamless setup of
time-delayed or immediate recordings among
networked devices.
Full Setup. Perform a full setup if you want to
give NetCommand the following additonal control:
Control a surround sound A/V receiver.
Automatically change input selections for the
A/V receiver.

•
sound such as Dolby Digital or DTS directly to the A/V
receiver, bypassing the TV entirely. A DVD player is
used in this example.
It is also possible for your setup to include two (or
more) devices with digital surround sound connected
directly to the A/V receiver. These devices could be
your DVD player plus a cable box or satellite receiver.
Audio Directly from TV. Audio from ANT 1 and
ANT 2, memory cards, and IEEE 1394 devices is
sent to the A/V receiver from the TV’s analog AUDIO
OUT LEFT/RIGHT or DIGITAL AUDIO OUT. In
this setup, you tell NetCommand to switch to the A/V
receiver’s designated TV audio input.
Analog Stereo Output Only. Audio from sources
with only analog stereo output (such as a VCR) can be
sent directly to the A/V receiver or directly to the TV
first and then on to the A/V receiver.
Mitsubishi recommends you send audio directly to the
TV, which can convert the signal to digital audio and
send it to a digital A/V receiver as digital audio.
Part 1: Learn IR Codes for A/V Receiver Inputs

Chapter 4. TV Operation and Features
TV Signals and Display Formats
TV Display Format Definitions
This is a widescreen TV, also known as a 16:9 TV. 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 is no perfect solution for displaying a squarish, narrower image on a wide screen,
Mitsubishi offers several display formats from which you
can choose.
Standard: This is the full-screen format. HDTV signals
use this format. This format is useful for displaying
Anamorphic DVDs that have 1.78:1 or 1.85:1 aspect
ratios. Anamorphic DVDs that have a 2.35:1 aspect ratio
are displayed with black bars at the top and bottom, but
show the entire image correctly. Narrow (4:3) images
are stretched evenly from side to side. Available for all
signals.
Press FORMAT on the TV remote control to cycle through the
available display formats. The last-used format for each
device is used when you return to that device.
Expand: This enlarges the picture to fill the screen, cropping off some of the image at the top and bottom. This
is useful for reducing the letter box top and bottom bars
of non-anamorphic DVD images. Available for 480i, 480p,
and digital SD 4:3 signals only.
Note:
• Only standard format is available for Split Screen.
• PC formats vary depending on the PC signal.
• For 1080p signals from an HDMI input, see “Computer Display Formats” in chapter 7, “Using the TV
with a Personal Computer.”
DVD Definitions
Anamorphic (or Enhanced for WideScreen TV)
These DVDs are recorded in a special way to properly
show widescreen images on 16:9 TV sets using the
Standard format mode. This is the recommended viewing
choice.
Non-Anamorphic (or 4:3, 1:33:1, Letter Box, or Full
Screen)
These DVDs are recorded for use with traditionally
shaped, squarish TVs. They may be full screen (4:3 or
1:33:1) which crops movies to fit the narrow TV, or letter
box, which adds black top and bottom bars.
This information may be listed on the DVD case. Some
DVDs support both types of recordings.
Signal Definitions
480i Signals: Traditional analog interlaced signals from
or through ANT-1 and 2, INPUT 1–3, COMPONENT
and HDMI jacks.
480p Signals: Progressive-scan DVD signals on COMPONENT and HDMI jacks.
Zoom: This enlarges the picture, cropping off some of
the image at each side and top and bottom. This is useful
for removing or reducing the black top and bottom bars
on anamorphic DVDs with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio. Available
for 480i, 480p, and SD 4:3 signals only.
Stretch: This format stretches a narrow (4:3) image
across the screen; there is less stretch in the center than
at the sides, however. This allows the entire narrow image
to be displayed across the screen with less distortion than
is seen in the Standard format. Available for 480i, 480p,
and SD 4:3 signals only.
Stretch Plus: Similar to stretch mode, but to minimize
distortions on the side, the picture is expanded to crop off
portions of the top and bottom. Except when displaying
to adjust the position of
menus or Split Screen, press
the picture vertically. Available for 480i, 480p, and SD 4:3
signals only.
Narrow: This format displays narrow (4:3) images in their
original shape, and adds stationary black side bars to fill
the screen. Available for 480i, 480p, and SD 4:3 signals
only.
Wide Expand: Enlarges the picture, cropping some of
the image on both sides. This Expand format is useful
to remove or reduce black side bars added to narrow
images that are converted to 16:9 signals for digital
broadcast. Available for 1080i, 720p, digital SD 16:9 and
digital HD signals.
720p and 1080i Signals: High-definition signals received
through COMPONENT and HDMI jacks. These
signals are always 16:9 (widescreen).
SD 4:3: Standard-definition narrow-screen format signals
from digital channels and IEEE 1394 devices.
SD 16:9: Standard-definition widescreen format signals
from digital channels and IEEE 1394 devices.
HD: High-definition wide-screen format signals from digital
channels and IEEE-1394 devices. These signals are always
16:9 (widescreen).
Note: All high-definition channels send widescreen (16:9)
signals, but not all programming sent on these
channels was created for this format. As a result,
the broadcaster must convert such programming
for broadcast, and may stretch the image or add
side bars to fill the widescreen area.

Captions Menu
Digital Captions
For analog channels, broadcasters can send either standard closed captions or text service. Standard closed
captions follow the dialogue of the characters on screen
and display in a small section of the screen. Text-service
closed captions often contain information such as weather
or news and cover a large portion of the screen.
The following display options are available for digital
sources:
For digital channels, broadcasters can send up to six different captioning selections or can send analog captions
that are the same as those sent by the analog station. Each TV station may broadcast only one or two types of
captions or none at all. The TV cannot decode closed
captions received on component or HDMI inputs.
•
Captions 1–6: Sent by broadcaster.
•
On if Mute: Closed captions are displayed when
audio is muted. When selected, press MUTE on the TV
remote control to turn captioning on/off (Caption 1).
•
Off: No closed captions.
Note: For digital programs, if the broadcaster is
sending only analog captions converted to digital
format, then the analog caption settings apply.

when sending digital closed captions. Select Custom to
override defaults and customize the appearance of closed
captions. These settings do not apply to analog closed
captioning converted to digital.

Mitsubishi recommends you use contrasting
colors for captions and background.
Black translucent background combined

broadcaster. If your captions show strange
characters, misspellings, or odd grammar, it is
not a malfunction of the TV.

V-CHIP EXCEPTIONS
• V-Chip blocking is ineffective for programs viewed
on devices connected to component or HDMI
inputs. Many of these devices, however, have their
own parental-control systems.
• Videotapes, laser discs, and DVDs may not
contain V-Chip rating signals. V-Chip cannot
block playback of recordings without V-Chip rating
signals.
• Broadcasters are not currently required to include
V-Chip rating signals. V-Chip cannot block programming broadcast without the V-Chip rating
signal.
Movie Ratings
Movie ratings are the MPAA ratings used for theaterreleased and direct-to-video movies. Movie ratings are:
G
General Audience. Designed for the entire family
to view.
PG
Parental Guidance. Parental Guidance is
recommended, may not be suitable for some
children.
PG-13 Parental Guidance, 13 and Older. Not
recommended for children under the age of 13.
R
Restricted. Restricted in theaters to 17 years old
and older unless accompanied by an adult.
NC-17 No Children 17 or Under. Restricted in theaters
to 18 years old and older.
X
Adult. Designed for and restricted in theaters to
adult audiences only.
The movie rating you select is for the least-restrictive
program level that can be viewed. For example, if you
select the PG-13 rating, movies rated G, PG and PG-13 can be watched, but movies rated R, NC-17, and X are
blocked.
Programs Not Rated: This refers to programs that carry
no rating, such as news, sports, weather, emergency bulletins, or movies prior to or without MPAA ratings. This
does not include programs without V-Chip signals.
TV content categories. Boxes marked with an “X” indicate
supplemental blocking you can apply to each rating level.
The TV rating you select is for the least-restrictive program
level allowed. For example, if you select TV-PG, programs
rated TV-Y, TV-Y7, and TV-PG can be viewed, but programs rated TV-14 and TV-MA are blocked.
When you select a TV content category to block, all TV
programs with the same content category listing are
blocked. For example, if you select to block V (Violence)
at the TV-14 level, any programs with the V category listing
rated TV-PG are also blocked.
IMPORTANT
If you enable blocking with the Programs
Not Rated option, you may block news or
emergency bulletins carrying the “None” or
“NR” Not Rated V-Chip rating. Use care when
blocking programming that is not rated.

IEEE 1394 System Compatibility
• This television is designed to conform to IEEE 1394 AV/C Software standards in effect at the time of development. This networking and control technology is designed to provide high-performance digital connections and product
control, making the product easier to use.
• Mitsubishi D-VHS VCRs are fully compatible with this TV in audio, video, and control.
• As other manufacturers distribute products that use the IEEE 1394 AV/C standards, they will be responsible for
developing products that meet the standards of the technology, as well as compatibility testing with other products. Mitsubishi cannot be responsible for their efforts, and therefore cannot promise compatibility with these other products. Any compatibility problems with other manufacturers’ products should be brought to the attention of those
manufacturers.
HDMI
The HDMI input is compliant with EIA-861B standards for standard, extended, and high-definition video; digital audio,
and HDCP copy protection. The HDMI inputs on this TV are not intended for use with personal computers or devices
outputting video signals with computer resolutions.

Appendix C: Lamp Cartridge Replacement
CAUTION
BURN DANGER!
During normal operation, the surfaces inside
the TV near the lamp are extremely hot.
TOUCH THE LAMP CARTRIDGE BY THE HANDLE ONLY
Do not touch the glass parts of the lamp cartridge.
CAUTION: If the television is on, press POWER to turn it off. Unplug the television and allow
it to cool for at least one hour before attempting to replace the lamp cartridge.
Lamp
The light source for this television is a lamp, which is part of a lamp cartridge assembly. The life of the lamp can vary,
based on the lamp itself, the air temperature around the TV while it is operating, and your viewing patterns. Warmer air
or poor ventilation shorten the lamp life, as does turning the television on and off frequently. Mitsubishi warrants the
lamp for one (1) year from the date of original TV purchase at retail.
To Order a New Lamp
To Receive a Replacement Lamp Under Warranty
Call (800) 553-7278. Please have model number, serial number, and TV purchase date available.
Important: All lamps replaced under warranty must be returned to Mitsubishi where they will be inspected for defect
verification.

Appendix D: Programming the Remote Control
This appendix explains how to program the TV’s remote
control to operate other A/V devices. This is distinct from
NetCommand “Learning.” To summarize: the TV’s remote
control can be made to operate other devices by two different methods:
•
Remote Control Programming: you must move
the slide switch to the position specific to the type
of device.
•
NetCommand® “Learning”: you can operate
other devices with the slide switch in the TV position. Position IR emitters in front of the other
devices and “teach” the devices’ IR signals to the
TV.
Functions Available for Other A/V Devices
The TV’s remote control can be programmed to operate
other types and brands of A/V products. To use the
remote when programmed, set the slide switch to the
position labelled for the product type. The functions
performed in each switch position can vary depending on
the product. Not all functions work for all models. The
most common functions available are listed on this page.

Mitsubishi DLP™ Projection Television Limited Warranty
MITSUBISHI DIGITAL ELECTRONICS AMERICA, INC. (“MDEA”) warrants as follows to the original purchaser of this
television from an authorized MITSUBISHI Audio/Video Dealer, should it prove defective by reason of against defects
arising from improper workmanship and/or material:
a. Parts. The lenticular (i.e. front picture) screen is warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for a period
of thirty (30) days from the date of the original purchase at retail. The lamp and all other parts (except any software
incorporated into this television) are warranted for a period of one (1) 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 may
be replaced with those of like kind and quality and may be new or remanufactured. Parts used for replacement are warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period.
b. Embedded Software. MDEA warrants that all software incorporated into this television set (the “Embedded Software”) will perform in accordance with the functional description of Embedded Software in all material respects, but
MDEA does not warrant that the Embedded Software is error-free. MDEA also does not warrant that the Embedded
Software will be compatible under IEEE 1394 AV/C and HAVi software standards with products produced by any other
manufacturer. The limited warranty contained in this section shall continue for a period of one (1) year from the date of
the original purchase at retail. If, after prompt notice within the warranty period, MDEA determines that the Embedded
Software has failed to perform in accordance with such functional description in all material respects and if such failure
is not due to accident, misuse, modification or misapplication of the Embedded Software, then MDEA shall modify or
replace the nonconforming Embedded Software at no charge to you, which at MDEA’s sole discretion may be fulfilled
by means of modification or replacement software contained on a replacement memory card for Customer installation. The foregoing shall be MDEA’s sole obligation to you under this limited warranty. All rights under this limited warranty
on the Embedded Software also subject to your acceptance of and compliance with the terms of the Software License
Agreement applicable to this television, and this limited warranty on the Embedded Software shall be null and void if the
Embedded Software is modified or changed in any manner except as specifically authorized by MDEA.
c. Labor. For thirty (30) days after the original purchase at retail, we will repair or replace, at our option, the lenticular
screen if it proves defective. For certain items that are designed to be replaced by the consumer, including (but not
limited to) some Embedded Software, the consumer is solely responsible for any replacement labor. For all other parts,
we will provide the labor for a warranty repair by an authorized MITSUBISHI service center without charge for one (1)
year from the original date of purchase at retail.
d. Notice. To obtain warranty service, you must notify an authorized MITSUBISHI service center of any defect within
the applicable warranty time period.

using small dots, or picture elements (pixels). Your DLP Projection TV is manufactured to a high level of performance
and quality, in fact, 99.99% perfect in the number of properly functioning pixels. As in other display technology, sometimes a pixel is continuously active, inactive or the incorrect color. Our standard is clear; MDEA warrants only that the
percentage of properly functioning pixels will be not less than 99.99% of all pixels.
BEFORE REQUESTING SERVICE, please review the instruction booklet to insure proper installation and correct
customer control adjustment. If the problem persists please arrange for warranty service.

antenna, cable or satellite systems, or service of products purchased or serviced outside the U.S.A. Please consult the
operating instructions contained in the Owner’s Guide furnished with the product for information regarding user controls.
3. ANY EXPRESS WARRANTY NOT PROVIDED HEREIN, AND ANY REMEDY WHICH, BUT FOR THIS PROVISION,
MIGHT ARISE BY IMPLICATION OR OPERATION OF LAW, IS HEREBY EXCLUDED AND DISCLAIMED. THE IMPLIED
WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND OF FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE ARE EXPRESSLY
LIMITED TO A TERM OF ONE YEAR.
4. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL MDEA 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 limited warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to
state.
