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
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
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.

IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS, continued
12. Power Lines
An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or
power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system,
extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them might be
fatal.
13. Overloading
Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
14. Object and Liquid Entry
Never push objects of any kind into this TV through openings as they may touch dangerous voltage points or shortout parts that could result in fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on or into the TV.
15. Outdoor Antenna Grounding

2. CableCARD™ Slot
5. Input-1, -2; Monitor Output
The CableCARD access card provided by your cable TV
service provider is inserted into this slot. The top of the
card should face in the direction the CARD TOP arrow
indicates.
CableCARD is a nationwide standard system that allows
your local cable TV provider to supply you with an
access card customized to your account. This card
allows the TV to receive, decode and unscramble the
premium digital channels included in your cable TV
subscription without the use of a cable box. See page
16 for additional CableCARD information and activation
instructions.
If your cable company is not currently offering
CableCARD access cards, you will need to use a cable
box provided and authorized by your local cable company
to view scrambled channels.
(Audio/Video 1, Audio 2)
Input 1 and 2 can be used for the connection of a VCR,
Super VHS (S-VHS) VCR, DVD player, standard satellite
receiver or other A/V device to the TV. Please note that
if S-VIDEO and VIDEO are available for the input, you
must choose to connect only one. They cannot both be
connected at the same time.
The Monitor Output sends the TV audio and video
signals from the antennas or Inputs to an A/V receiver
or other analog A/V equipment such as a VCR. Digital
channels and IEEE 1394 signals will be down converted
to analog signals compatible with traditional VCRs.
Digital channels or IEEE 1394 signals may be output with
copy protection or may display no video signals if they
have copy restrictions. There will be only audio and no
video signals from Monitor Outputs when viewing the
Component 1 & 2 inputs, INPUT-DTV, the HDMI input or
Cards 1-4.
13
Back Panel, continued
Monitor Output Audio/Video 1 should be connected to
a VCR for recording. Monitor Output Audio 2 should
be connected to your A/V receiver for home theater
surround sound.
6. PC Input and Audio
(VGA/WVGA/SVGA/WSVGA/XGA/
720p, 60Hz )
This input can be used for the connection of a computer.

8. IR Emitter-NetCommand®
Two jacks are provided for connecting IR emitters. IR
Emitters connected to these jacks are used by the
NetCommand system of the TV to control external analog
devices such as VCRs, DVDs, cable boxes, satellite
receivers and audio receivers.
9. DVI Analog Audio
Unlike HDMI, DVI does not carry audio information on
the same cable. Use these analog stereo audio inputs
when using the HDMI input with a device that outputs DVI
instead of HDMI.
10. HDMI/M-Link
M-Link(MonitorLink™) is a Mitsubishi exclusive
proprietary digital interface for the display of high quality
digital video signals from Mitsubishi products, such as
the HD-6000 HDTV Receiver/Controller.
The HDMI™ (High Definition Multimedia Interface)
supports uncompressed standard and high definition
digital video formats and existing digital multi-channel
audio formats. If using a cable box, the HDMI input
supports both video and audio using a single cable.
14
Use this input to connect to EIA/CEA-861 compliant
devices such as a high definition receiver or DVD
player. This input supports 480i, 480p, 720p and 1080i
video formats. It is not intended for use with personal
computers or devices outputting video signals with
computer resolutions.
This input can also be used as a DVI connection with
separate analog audio inputs. An optional HDMI-toDVI adaptor or cable will be necessary to make this
connection and may be available from your local
electronics retailer. When using the optional HDMI-toDVI adapter, the DVI analog audio inputs on your TV allow
you to receive left and right audio from your DVI device.
This input is HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Copy
Protection) compliant.
11. M-Link/RS-232C Control
A digital control interface that works in conjunction with
M-Link. While M-Link provides the digital video signal,
the RS-232 control provides enhanced functioning such
as automatic power ON/OFF and input port selection
with an external control system. For RS-232 command
protocol please visit www.mitsubishi-tv.com.
12. Digital Audio Output
This output will automatically send Dolby® Digital audio
from digital channels and IEEE 1394 devices to a digital
Audio/Video receiver. Connect this output to the A/V
receiver’s coaxial digital audio input. The output will
automatically turn off when viewing an analog channel
or device. Use Monitor Output Audio 2 to send analog
sound to your A/V receiver.
Some digital cable channels send MPEG-1 digital audio
instead of Dolby Digital, however, not all A/V receivers
can decode MPEG-1 digital audio. This can cause the
A/V receivers to produce a loud noise that can damage
speakers. For this reason, the TV will automatically turn
off the digital audio output when tuned to a channel or
device that has MPEG-1 digital audio and send it to the
A/V receiver as analog left and right audio from Monitor
Output.

Connecting External Devices & NetCommand® Setup
NetCommand is able to control many current audio and video devices by sending remote control signals from the
TV to each device through IR emitters. Additionally, it is also able to learn the remote control signals used by most
audio video devices not already in the TV’s memory. NetCommand can automatically switch the TV and compatible
or learned Audio/Video (A/V) Receivers to the correct input used with each device. It is important that the inputs on
the TV and A/V receiver back panels match the NetCommand setup that is displayed on-screen.
To simplify the installation of NetCommand, there is a step-by-step on-screen NetCommand Setup procedure in this
chapter, which details the type and brands of devices you are connecting to the TV. The NetCommand Setup also
assigns preset TV and A/V receiver inputs for each device. You should connect each device to the TV input (both
audio and video) and to the A/V receiver (audio) as shown in the figure below.

CableCARD™ Technology
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. It also
allows your cable provider to automatically update
and change your subscription. When you move to
a new cable provider’s area, you simply return the
CableCARD to the original cable provider and get a
new card from your new cable provider.
Please note that CableCARD is a 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” which
means your cable provider can send updates to the
access card and TV, however, the TV cannot send
back signals such as requests for Video-On-Demand
or Pay-per-View request by remote control.
Digital cable channels authorized by the CableCARD
will be available on the Firewire® IEEE 1394 network
and can be shared by other products on the network.
Some digital channels or programs may not be copied
or recorded because of copy restriction limits set by
the content owners or copyright holders.
The digital television is cable of receiving analog
basic, digital basic and digital premium cable
television programming by direct connection to
a cable system providing such programming. A
security card (CableCARD) provided by your cable
operator is required to view encrypted digital
programming. Certain advanced and interactive
digital cable services such as video-on-demand, a
cable operator’s enhanced program guide and dataenhanced television services may require the use of a
set-top box. For more information call your local cable
operator.
Please see page 17 for instructions on how to insert
the CableCARD.
18
Using a CableCARD
After inserting a CableCARD into the TV back
panel CableCARD slot and powering On the TV,
the initialization process begins. An initial screen
will automatically display for a few minutes, with
information that your Cable Provider will need in order
to start service. Please write down this information
before calling your cable provider.
Please call XYZ Cable
at xxx-xxx-xxxx to
activate cable service.
They will need these numbers:
Host ID X-XXX-XXX-XXX-XXX
CableCARDTM ID: X-XXX-XXX-XXX-XXX
See owner's manual for
further information
An example of an initial screen is shown here. Your
screen will display specific information from your
cable provider and may not look like this screen.
If you were unable to record the information, you can
press TV MENU on the remote and then enter the
number 999 and the screen will re-display. You can
also press DEVICE MENU when the CableCARD is
the selected source and you will be able to select the
startup application.
IMPORTANT
To use a CableCARD, the primary incoming
cable must be connected to ANT-1 MAIN.

Connecting the IR Emitter NetCommand®
IR Emitter NetCommand®
Figure 17
A quadruple IR Emitter cable is included with the TV.
The emitters connected to these jacks are used by the
NetCommand system to control other devices such as
VCRs, DVD players, Cable boxes and Satellite receivers.
6. If you are not going to be using all emitter ends,
place the unused ends behind the devices so that
they cannot send signals to the remote control
sensors.
1. Connect the plug end of the supplied quadruple
IR Emitter Cable to one of the IR Output
NetCommand jacks on the TV back panel.
2. Run the cable for each of the emitter ends under,
along side or over the top of each device to be
controlled to the area of the front where the remote
control sensor is located.
3. Place the emitter end in front of the remote control
sensor of the device to be controlled. The emitter
bulb should face the remote control sensor. This
bulb emits infrared light in a cone shaped pattern.
The bulb needs to be placed far enough from the
remote control sensor to allow the cone pattern to
include the sensor.
The remote control sensor is usually behind the
plastic window of the front display panel. It is
sometimes visible when you look through the display
plastic using 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 using the
device’s remote control. Hold the remote about 1/2
inch from the front of the device. Starting from one
end of the display window plastic, press the POWER
button.
If the device does not respond, move the remote
control 1 inch toward the center and try again.
Repeat this until the device responds. Note this
location then start over from the other end of the
display window plastic, repeating until the device
responds again. The remote control sensor will be
somewhere between these two positions. This is
usually enough accuracy for the placement of the IR
emitters.
4. With some devices, the emitter will work better
facing downward from the top of the device.
Some experimentation may be needed.
5. The emitter end being used can be secured in
place using double stick tape.

IMPORTANT
If a single emitter end can be placed in a
position that will operate more than one device,
do not use a separate emitter end for the
additional device. A single device receiving
remote control signals from too many emitters
or remote controls may not respond at all.

Connecting Compatible IEEE 1394 Devices
Compatible IEEE 1394 Devices
It is possible to connect devices to the TV that have IEEE
1394 connectors but are not compatible with the TV or with
the NetCommand® control system. Areas of compatibility
to consider are:
1. Digital Video Signals
The TV is able to decode MPEG2 video. Other types
of digital video, such as DV video provided by some
camcorders, must be decoded by the source device
and sent to the TV as analog video or S-Video. If the
camcorder uses a compatible digital control system,
the IEEE 1394 cable can still provide control for the
camcorder while the TV is viewing the analog video or
S-Video signals.
2. Digital Audio Signals
When received with video signals, the TV is able to
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.
The TV may not be able to pass incompatible digital
audio signals on the coaxial digital audio output,
however these signals may pass on the IEEE 1394 cable
to other devices.
3. Digital Control Signal
The TV is able to act 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 is designed for tuning devices such as cable
boxes allowing the device to send simple graphics.
However, this standard does not allow the TV to
control the cable box by IEEE 1394.
• AV/C (Audio Video Control) is designed to provide
basic controls such as play, stop, channel selection
and volume, as appropriate for the device.
Some devices may be a combination of two or more
types of devices. For example, there may be a
recording device that is also a tuning device. Each
portion of the device is called a sub-unit. When you
select a device on the Device Selection menu that
has sub-units, a pop-up menu will appear so you can
select which sub-unit section you wish to use.
28
When Connecting IEEE 1394 Devices
• Do not loop the last device in the chain back
to the TV. When the device chain is looped,
the TV may not be able 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 will be 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 speed can interfere
with IEEE 1394 signals from faster devices.
When using NetCommand to set up a digital
recording between a faster and slower device,
select “Record Later”.
• Do not use an IEEE 1394 cable longer than 15
feet between each device.
• This TV is an IEEE 1394a Device. IEEE 1394b
is currently under development. This system
will provide for longer distances and multiroom applications. Included in the IEEE
1394b systems are IEEE 1394a to IEEE 1394b
converters to maintain compatibility with this TV
and other IEEE 1394a devices.
Connecting Compatible IEEE 1394 Devices, continued
Connection Styles
There are two different connection styles that can be
used when connecting IEEE 1394 devices. Use the
style that fits your network of audio/video products.
4-Pin Style vs. 6-Pin Style Connectors
There are two different types of connectors used for
IEEE 1394 terminals and cables, a 4-pin and a 6-pin
style.
Direct Device-To-Device Style
The IEEE 1394 offers you the capability to chain
devices, unlike previous audio and video connections
where you had to individually connect each device
directly to the TV. For example, you can connect your
D-VHS to your 1394 DVD Player and then connect the
1394 DVD Player to the TV. The resulting IEEE 1394
chain will allow you to add more devices to the chain.
You will be able to see each video device on the TV’s
Device Selection Menu and send information from
any IEEE 1394 device to other compatible devices.
4 pin connector
6 pin connector
��
Hub Connection Style
The IEEE 1394 also offers you the capability to
connect your devices using 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.
6 pin to 4 pin adaptor

��������
�����
���� ������ ��
������� ��� ��
The 6-pin connector is capable
of sending the same digital audio,
video and control signals as the
4-pin connector, but the 6-pin
connector is also able to send low
voltage electrical power. This TV
does not have 6 pin connectors.
The purpose of this low voltage electrical power is to
provide the needed operating power to a device that
is not connected directly to the household AC power
such as a camcorder. A device with a 6-pin connector
can send this electrical power to another device, or
receive electrical power from another device, or simply
use a 6-pin connector without using the two additional
pins.
�������
���
�������
���
The 4-pin connector sends
digital audio signals, digital video
signals and digital control signals
back and forth between devices.
Your TV has three 4-pin type
connection jacks available. One
is on the front panel and two are
on the back.
�������
��� ��
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,
you will need to obtain a 6-pin to
4-pin adaptor or adaptor cable.
These cables are available from
electronic and computer stores.
When connecting a 6-pin device (such as a camcorder)
to the TV, (if it is designed to receive electrical power
from another 6-pin device) you will need to connect
the camcorder directly to the household AC, or use the
camcorder’s battery for power. If this is not possible,
then the camcorder will need to be connected directly
to another 6-pin device in the network that can provide
the electrical power.

Connecting: Helpful Hints
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. There are two solutions:
1. Connect the single set of stereo audio outputs to the TV only. Use Edit NetCommand® to change the
setup of this device. In the Connection screen of “Change” make sure both audio and video for the TV
input are checkmarked and neither the audio or the video for the AVR input are check marked. This will
allow the NetCommand system to use the TV outputs to transfer the device’s audio to the A/V Receiver.
See Edit NetCommand in the next chapter for details.
2. Use RCA type “Y” splitter cables to split the device’s audio output to be connected to both the TV and
the A/V Receiver.
Q. I have both the TV monitor stereo audio output and TV digital audio output connected to the same
input designation on my A/V Receiver. How do I switch between analog audio and digital audio?
A. This depends on the individual A/V Receiver. Some A/V Receivers will switch automatically to digital when
a digital audio signal is supplied. Other A/V Receivers can be manually switched by remote control. For
these types of A/V Receivers, see Edit NetCommand in the next chapter for NetCommand control of these
features. Some A/V Receivers will require that you make this change on the front panel of the A/V Receiver.
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.
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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. You can connect the video output of the A/V Receiver to an unused input on the TV. Then use Edit
NetCommand to “Add” this as an “Other” device, not an A/V Receiver. On the “Connection” screen, indicate
which TV input was used and checkmark the video box. Make sure the TV input audio box and both the
audio and video boxes for the AVR input are not checkmarked. You should also name this device so you can
easily identify it on the Device Selection Menu. You can also use Input 3 (Camcorder) on the front panel.
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 Device Selection Menu. Just add this unit once using the Input-DTV
and once using one of the S-video inputs. Make sure you indicate that this is the same manufacturer for
both. We suggest that you connect stereo audio outputs with the S-video to the TV so that you do not need
to use two inputs on the A/V Receiver. If this is a NetCommand compatible HDTV receiver and HD or SD
outputs can be switched by remote control, see Edit NetCommand in the next chapter for NetCommand
control of this feature.

Using the Remote Control with NetCommand®
Below is a list of several manufacturers devices tested and shown to be compatible with NetCommand. These devices
can be controlled without changing the setting of the remote control from TV to another product. NetCommand may be
able to operate additional models since many manufacturers use the same control signals to operate some or all of the
models they offer. This chart lists only the models that have been tested with NetCommand. The NetCommand Learning
feature is able to learn the remote control signals of most Audio Video devices. For devices not listed in the table, or
if your device does not operate using the same remote control as the models listed below, use the learning feature by
selecting “Other” at the [Device] screen. See the Edit NetCommand section of this Guide.
NOTE: There are many different types of remotes and not all of them may be compatible with the learning feature. Bright
light near the TV screen can also adversely affect the learning feature. If it is not possible to learn a device, you will need

IEEE 1394 Devices and NetCommand® Control
See pages 28-29 for information regarding compatible IEEE 1394 devices and connection styles. The TV is not able
to control IEEE 1394 devices that use other types of control protocols. Incompatible digital audio, video and/or
control information will still be able to pass from one device through the TV to another device on the network. These
incompatible devices may not appear on the Device Selection menu or in the Review screen of the Edit NetCommand
menu.
NetCommand Control of Digital Devices Using the “Learn” Feature.
Some IEEE 1394 devices such as cable boxes or satellite receivers will not have compatible digital control signals
or require the use of the device’s own remote control. Some of these IEEE 1394 devices will not display on-screen
information through the IEEE 1394 connection and will require using an analog connection for on-screen displays. In
many cases, to control these digital devices, the Learning feature of NetCommand can be used.
1. Place an IR Emitter for NetCommand in front of the device’s remote control sensor (see IR Emitters, page 27).
2. On the Name for 1394 Device screen (Figure 2, page 49) check mark the Analog Connection check box.
3. Select the device type on the IEEE 1394 Device Type screen (Figure 3, page 50) of cable box, DBS or similar tuning
device.
4. Select “Other” as a manufacturer and then highlight “Learn” and press ENTER on the Device screen (Figure 4, page
50).
5. Follow the device learning instructions found in Edit NetCommand section of Chapter 3.
6. The Connection screen (Figure 5, page 50) follows the learning screens. If analog connections are used, select the
correct inputs. If analog connections are not used, uncheck the audio and video connections for both the TV and AVR
inputs.
7. Proceed with the Finish screen.
This will allow NetCommand to use the learned remote control signal to control these IEEE 1394 devices.
Note: When using the NetCommand learning feature for IEEE 1394 devices that do not have analog connections,
the GUIDE function will require pressing GUIDE twice. The first press of GUIDE will display the TV’s digital channel
guide. The second press will display the program guide for the device if an IEEE 1394 Guide is available.

Adding IEEE 1394 Devices Automatically
Adding IEEE 1394 Devices
Automatically
When an IEEE 1394 device is connected into the
TV network and is powered On, the new device will
automatically announce its presence. This process is
called device discovery and can take up to 1 minute.
Some non-audio/video or non-compatible IEEE 1394
devices, such as Personal Computers (PCs), may not
announce their presence to the TV. The TV will not
be able to show these devices in the Device Selection
menu, however, they can coexist and will still be
available to other devices on the IEEE 1394 network
that are compatible with these non-audio/video
devices.
Name for 1394 Device Screen
Figure 2
If you choose to add the discovered IEEE 1394 device,
the Name for 1394 Device screen will appear. Name
the device or use the default name that appears
automatically.
Some IEEE 1394 digital devices, such as some DVCRs,
can also operate as analog devices. For example,
some DVCRs can record and play as VHS or S-VHS,
in addition to D-VHS. This allows you to play analog
rental tapes or analog tapes from your established
library or make analog recordings from antenna or
cable systems. To use the analog capability, check the
Analog Connection box.
IEEE 1394 cable boxes and satellite receivers may
require that you use the remote control that came with
those devices. For some compatible devices, the
Cable/DBS/DTV position of the TV remote control may
be able to control operation.
New 1394 Device Screen
Figure 1
When your TV discovers a new IEEE 1394 device, the
New 1394 Device screen will appear. Selecting “Add”
will include the device in the Device Selection menu.
Selecting “Do Not Add” will not add the device to the
Device Selection menu. If the IEEE 1394 device does not
provide audio and video, you may not want to add that
device to the TV’s Device Selection menu. Devices that
were discovered but not added to the Device Selection
menu will still be listed in the Review screen of the Edit
NetCommand® menu.

If the new IEEE 1394 device is also connected using
analog inputs, you will need to define the device type.
Select the type of device, such as a VCR.
Select the TV input that you used when you connected
the video or S-Video cables. You may also select the TV
or A/V receiver input you used when you connected the
stereo audio cables. The TV will learn the input names
for the TV Input and A/V Receiver Input selections. If
your A/V receiver has other inputs than those listed
in the menu, those other inputs are not available for
NetCommand.
Figures 3 and 4
Figure 3. IEEE 1394 Device Type screen
Once the device type is selected, then the Device
screen is displayed so the manufacturer can be
selected. If the manufacturer is listed, then you may
be able to control this device while it is operating as
an analog VCR. For example, if the IEEE 1394 device
you have added is a Mitsubishi DVCR, and you have
selected an analog connection as a second connection,
then you will select Mitsubishi for the manufacturer. If
the manufacturer is not listed, select “Other” and use
the Learn screens.
Be sure to place an IR Emitter in front of the remote
control sensor, just as you have done for other
NetCommand® devices. It is necessary to use the
IR Emitter only when the DVCR is being used as an
S-VHS or VHS VCR. When the DVCR is playing or
recording digital signals in D-VHS, the TV will control
the VCR through the IEEE 1394 cable.
Figure 5
The playback and record control of some DV camcorders
may still operate by the IEEE 1394 cable automatically,
even though you must use the video or S-video cable
for the picture. In this case, when you select the

NetCommand® Controlled Peer-to-Peer Connections
What is a Peer-to-Peer Connection?
Figure 14
A peer-to-peer connection allows the IEEE 1394 devices
in your TV network to talk to each other without the
further need of TV intervention once the peer-to-peer
connection is established.
For example, the TV can setup a connection for an
A/V Disc or DVCR that sends a recorded program to
an IEEE 1394 monitor in another room. NetCommand
will establish the connection between the two devices.
Once the connection has been established, the TV
can be turned off or used to watch another device.
Recording from digital channels to a DVCR is also a
peer-to-peer connection. In this case, the TV is one of
the devices in the peer-to peer connection.
Analog or traditional (non-digital) devices can not be
used for peer-to-peer connections.

Display Formats
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 will never be a perfect solution for displaying a narrow image on a wide screen, Mitsubishi offers several
display formats to choose from.
Press FORMAT on the TV remote control to cycle
through the available display formats. The last used
format for each device will be used when you return to
that device.
Note: Not all formats are available for
PIP/POP. Side-by-Side, 3 POP and 9 POP are
only available in Standard and Expand formats.
PC formats vary depending on PC signal.
Signals and Formats Definitions:
480i Signals: Traditional analog interlaced signals from
or through Ant-1 & 2, Inputs 1-3, Component 1 & 2,
Input-DTV and HDMI.
480p Signals: Progressive scan analog DVD signals on
Ant-1 & 2, Component-1 & 2, Input-DTV and HDMI.
720p & 1080i Signals: High definition analog signals
received through Component-1 & 2, Input-DTV and HDMI.
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 wide screen 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).
Standard: This is the full screen format. HDTV
signals use this format. This format is useful to display
Anamorphic DVDs that have 1.78:1 or 1.85:1 aspect
ratios. Anamorphic DVDs that have a 2.35:1 aspect
ratio will still display black bars at the top and bottom,
but will show the entire image correctly. Narrow (4:
3) images will be stretched evenly from side to side.
Available for all signals.
Expand: This will enlarge the picture to fill the screen,
cropping off some of the image at the top and bottom.
This is useful to reduce the letterbox top and bottom
bars of non-anamorphic DVD. Available for analog
480i, 480p and digital SD 4:3 signals only.
78
Zoom: This will enlarge the picture, cropping off some
of the image at each side and top and bottom. This is
useful to remove or reduce the black top and bottom
bars on anamorphic DVDs with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio.
Available for analog 480i and 480p and SD 4:3 signals
only.
Stretch: 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. Available
for analog 480i and 480p and SD 4:3 signals only.
Stretch Plus: Similar to stretch mode, however
to minimize distortions on the side, the picture is
expanded to crop off portions of the top and bottom.
Useful when no important information is shown at the
top and/or bottom of the screen. Available for analog
480i and 480p and SD 4:3 signals only.
Narrow: This format will display narrow (4:3) images in
their original shape, and add stationary black side bars
to fill the screen. Available for 480i, 480p and digital
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 analog 1080i, 720p, digital SD
16:9 and digital HD signals.
DVD Definitions:
Anamorphic (or Enhanced for Widescreen TV’s):
These DVDs are recorded in a special way to properly
show widescreen images on 16:9 TV sets in the
Standard format mode. This is the recommended
choice.
Non-Anamorphic (or 4:3, 1:33:1, Letterbox or Full
Screen):
These DVDs are recorded for use with traditional
shaped TVs. They may be full screen (4:3 or 1:
33:1) which crops movies to fit the narrow TV, or
Letterboxed which adds black top and bottom bars.
This information may or may not be listed on the DVD
case. Some DVDs support both types of recordings.

Bypassing the V-Chip Lock:
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.
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 TV
remote control at the same time, when your passcode
is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV.
When entering the V-Chip Lock menu, this process
deletes your old passcode and prompts you to enter a
new passcode. Press HOME to exit the menu.
Bypassing Front Button Lock
If you have misplaced the remote control, you can
bypass the front button lock by pressing and holding
the MENU button on the front panel for more than 8
seconds.
IMPORTANT
Cut along the dotted line and file
bypass instructions in a safe place for
future reference.
IMPORTANT
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.

Net command® 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
exciting new 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. Many DV camcorders that have
IEEE 1394 connections will be compatible with the control features of this TV, but not compatible with the audio or
video decoder.
As other manufacturers produce products that use the IEEE 1394 AV/C standards, they will be responsible to develop
theses products to 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.
The HDMI input is compliant with EIA-861B standards for standard, extended and high definition video, digital audio
and HDCP copy protection. However, this input is not intended for use with personal computers or devices outputting
video signals with computer resolutions.

Appendix F: Cleaning and Service
IMPORTANT
DO NOT use any kind of abrasive cleaner
on the surface of the TV screen or
Diamond Shield™.
Cleaning
Normally, light dusting with a dry, non-scratching duster will keep your TV clean. If cleaning beyond this is needed,
please use the following guidelines:
First, turn off the TV and unplug the power cord from the power outlet.
Top and Sides of the TV:
• Gently wipe down your TV with a soft, non-abrasive cloth such as cotton flannel or a clean cloth diaper, lightly
moistened with water. Dry with a second dry, soft, non-abrasive cloth.
• For oily dirt, add a few drops of mild liquid detergent, such as dishwashing detergent to the water used to moisten
the cloth. Rinse with a second cloth moistened only with water. Dry with a third dry, soft, non-abrasive cloth.
Diamond Shield™:
• Clean with a soft non-abrasive cloth moistened with water only.
Screen behind the Diamond Shield:
• Follow the instructions for the top and sides, however, wipe gently in an up and down motion, following the
grooves in the screen.
• Clean the entire screen evenly, not just sections of the screen.
• Do not allow liquid to drip down the grooves of the screen as some liquid may enter the TV between the screen
and the screen frame.
• You may purchase Mitsubishi Screen Cleaner, part number CLEANER-VSS, by calling (800) 553-7278.
General Cleaning Warnings:

Appendix H: Lamp Cartridge Replacement
Before you replace the lamp cartridge please note the following:
CAUTION: If the television is on, press POWER to turn off and allow the television to cool
for one hour before attempting to replace the lamp cartridge.
LAMP LIFE
The light source for this television is a lamp, which is part of a lamp cartridge assembly. The actual life of the
lamp in this television 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 shortens the lamp life, as does turning the television
on and off frequently.
Mitsubishi warrants the lamp for one (1) year from date of the original purchase at retail. However, it is likely
that the lamp will last significantly longer than this. When the end of the lamp's life is approaching, the TV will
display a warning message for one minute, when the TV is powered on. The purpose of this message is to
advise you that the lamp may fail soon. This warning message will continue to be displayed every time the TV
is turned on, until the lamp cartridge is replaced and the lamp's status is reset.
After replacing the lamp cartridge, when you power on the TV, the message "Did you change the lamp? Press
ENTER for Yes, press CANCEL for No" will appear, press ENTER to reset.
To order a new lamp cartridge, please call (800) 553-7278 and order part number 915P020010.
WARNING:
Do not remove the lamp cartridge immediately after turning off the television. You may get burned because of
the lamp's high temperature. Allow the television to cool for one hour before attempting to replace the lamp
cartridge.
Do not remove the lamp cartridge, except when replacing. Careless treatment can result in injury or fire.
Do not touch the lamp element directly. It may break and cause you to have injuries or burns.
Be sure not to insert any metal or flammable object into the lamp cartridge opening, as it may cause
fire or electrical shock. If any object is inserted into the opening unplug the AC cord of the TV
and contact your dealer for service.
Install the lamp cartridge securely. Failure to do so may cause a fire.
The lamp in this product contains mercury. Disposal of mercury may be regulated due to environmental
considerations. For disposal or recycling information, please contact your local authorities or the Electronic
Industries Alliance: www.eiae.org

Mitsubishi DLP™ Projection Television Limited Warranty
MITSUBISHI DIGITAL ELECTRONICS AMERICA, INC. (“MDEA”) warrants as follows to the original purchaser of this
television that if purchased 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 and/or the Diamond Shield™ 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 VIP 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 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 media 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 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) the Diamond Shield™ and/or some Embedded Software, the consumer is solely responsible for any replacement
labor. The VIP lamp is consumer replaceable and labor for replacement is not covered under warranty, please refer to the
Owner’s Guide for replacement procedures. Air filter cleaning is normal consumer required maintenance and labor for this
procedure is not covered under warranty, please refer to the Owner’s Guide for air filter cleaning procedures. 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.
e. This DLP™ Projection Television uses a revolutionary technology, Digital Micromirror Device™, to create the screen
image. This technology creates the image 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.
1. TO OBTAIN WARRANTY SERVICE:
a. Contact your nearest authorized MITSUBISHI service center whose name and address can be obtained from your
MITSUBISHI dealer, by writing at the address provided below, calling MDEA at the 800-332-2119, or use the support
feature of our website at www.mitsubishi-tv.com.
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.
106
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.
d. To obtain a replacement VIP lamp during the warranty period, please contact the MDEA Consumer Relations Department
at (949) 830-8364. After the warranty period you may order the lamp directly from the MDEA Parts Department at (800)
553-7278.
2. THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER:
a. Up to .01% pixel outages (small dot picture elements that are dark or incorrectly illuminated).
b. Damage to Diamond Shield, lenticular screen or Fresnel lens, screen frame, cosmetic damage or to any other damage
where such damage is caused by unauthorized modification, alteration, repairs to or service of the product by anyone other
than an authorized MITSUBISHI service center; physical abuse to or misuse of the product (including any failure to carry
out any maintenance as described in the Owner’s Guide including air filter cleaning or any product damaged by excessive
physical or electrical stress); any products that have had a serial number or any part thereof altered, defaced or removed;
product use in any manner contrary to the Owner’s Guide; freight damage; or any damage caused by acts of God or other
factors beyond the reasonable control of MDEA, such as power surge damage caused by electrical system or lightning. This
warranty also excludes service calls where no defect in the product covered under this warranty is found, service calls related
to unsatisfactory audio or visual reception or signal unless caused a defect in the product that is covered under this warranty,
all costs, expenses or any other damages arising from product installation, or set-ups, any adjustments of user controls
(including contrast, brightness, color, tint, fine tuning, sharpness), other adjustment necessary to prepare the unit for display
or use, connection with any external audio receiver, 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 warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
