IRIS is the Intelligent Room Illumination (light) Sensor. When IRIS is on, your TV will automatically adjust the picture contrast and brightness for the best picture based on your room lighting.
When turned on, Contrast and Brightness cannot be adjusted manually.
TM
Contrast provides a slider that controls the level of white-to-black in the picture. Low contrast
will show a variety of shades in the darker images on the screen. High contrast will show the
screen's dark images more uniformly black and make the colors on the screen seem more vibrant.
Brightness
provides a slider that controls the overall brightness of the picture.
Auto Picture for Ant-A and Ant-B, senses the tuner signal strength. It adjusts picture color and
sharpness for the best picture.When turned on, sharpness and color cannot be adjusted manually.
Sharpness provides a slider that adjusts the detail and clarity of the picture.
Color provides a slider that determines the intensity of the color.
Tint provides a slider that adjusts the proportion
of red to green in the picture.
ColorTemp
(Color temperature) allows you to set how theTV will display white images. Your
choices are"Low 6500K or Low (for HD)", "High" or"Medium"
With the Low 6500K or Low (for HD) setting, white images onscreen will have a warm cast to them. This adjustment is an
average and can vary due to ambient room lighting, video scene
brightness and the TV's age. The Low 6500K represents the
6500°K industry standard for NTSC (non-HD) pictures.
• 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.
• With the Medium setting, white images on-screen will be

sidebars. If this is a letterbox picture, there will be black bars at the top and bottom.
•

•
Zoom - After expanding the picture left-to-right, Zoom will stretch the picture top-to-bottom,
and there may be some loss of picture at the top and bottom. This format will reduce or
remove the black bars from letterbox pictures.

Pictures
Some DVD discs might have anamorphic pictures. Anamorphic pictures are specially designed for
display on widescreen TVs (the DVD player should be set to "TV Shape 16:9"). We recommend
using the Expand format with these programs to enjoy the benefits of full screen display, proper
image shape and high resolution. Some anamorphic pictures are in special movie theater
widescreen shapes and might be marked "aspect ratio 2.35: I". These images will still show small
black bars at the top and bottom of the screen when displayed in the Expand format.

Assign the digital input you used for your DVD player to theAV receiver's
DVD input selector. For example, if you connected your DVD player's digital
output to the DIGITAL INPUT I, you need to then assign DIGITAL INPUT I
to the AV receiver's DVD input, so that it will automatically be used. This
procedure is explained in the owner's guide for theAV receiver.
DIGITALASSIGNMENT
FOR HDTV:
For Mitsubishi AV receiver model M-VR800 or M-VRI000, assign the HDTV
ditial input toVCR 2. VCR 2 will now be used to hear the HDTV sound.

Important
Notes
Warning:
Don't leave stationary or letterboxed
Mix the types of pictures shown.
images on-screen
for extended
periods of time.
The normal use of aTV should include a mixture of television picture types. The most used
pictures types should fill the screen with constantly moving images rather than stationary images
or patterns. Displaying the same stationary patterns over extended periods of time, or displaying
the same stationary pattern frequently can leave a subtle but permanent ghost image in your
picture. Note that moving images with stationary black bars can also leave a subtle but permanent
ghost image. To avoid this, mix your viewing pattern; do not show the same stationary image for
more than 15% of your total TV viewing in any one week. Display constantly moving and changing
images that fill the screen whenever possible.
This projection television uses picture tubes to project the image to the screen. All picture tubes
age with use. As they age,their light output is gradually reduced. Normal television pictures fill the
screen with constantly changing images. In these conditions, the picture tubes age at an even rate
across the entire screen. This maintains aTV picture that is evenly bright over the whole screen.
Stationary images or images that only partially fill the screen (leaving black or colored bars to fill
the screen), when used over extended periods of time or when viewed repeatedly, can cause
uneven aging of the phosphors and leave subtle ghosts of the stationary images in the picture.
Uneven
picture tube aging is not covered
by the warranty.
Still or stationary images may be received from broadcasters, cable channels or satellite channels,
DVD discs, video tapes, laser discs, on-line services or web/internet searching devices, video games
and digital television tuner/converter
boxes. Examples of these types of image can be, but are not
limited to the following:
• Letterbox top/bottom
black bars
(These are the black bars shown at the top and bottom of the
screen when you watch a widescreen movie on a standardTV)
• Side bar images
(These are the solid bars shown on each side of the image when
you watch a normaITV program on a widescreenTV)
• Stock-market
report bars
(These are the row of stock prices normally shown at the
bottom of the screen during a financial report)
• Shopping channel Iogos and pricing displays
(Especially bright displays that are shown constantly or repeatedly
in the same place on the screen)
• Video game patterns or scoreboards
• Bright station Iogos
(Subtle, low-contrast Iogos are less likely to cause uneven aging,
especially if they are translucent and are not always projected in
the same spot)
• On-line (internet)
web sites
or other computer style images that are not changed or are left
on display for long periods of time

Notes, continued
Warning:
If you 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
permanently harm the picture tubes.
If you place non-shielded speakers next to the TV, they may affect the convergence.
move the speakers further away from the television.
If this happens,
For maximum enjoyment and safe operation of your Mitsubishi TV, please read IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS, pages 5 and 6 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 theTV 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

connection
compatibility
This input is compatible with component video signals from standard DVD players and other
equipment that send standard NTSC component video, also known as 480L This input may also be
compatible with some newer DVD players, that are described as 480p or progressive scan. Since
the industry standard concerning copy protection for 480p DVD signals was not finalized when this
TV design was completed, you may experience a small amount of picture disturbance near the top
edge when playing discs using the 480p outputs of some DVD players.

connection
compatibility
This input is fully compatible with the Mitsubishi HD-1080 HDTV receiver. You will need BNC-toRCA adaptors for the RGB with H andV cable connections to the TV. Adaptors are available at
most electronic and computer supply stores.
For other HDTV receivers, this input is compatible with most standard HDTV receivers that have
component video outputs. Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i or 480p and HDTV 1080i. All
other digital TV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the HDTV receiver to any of the
above signals. Please check the HDTV receiver specifications before connecting.
This input is also compatible with HDTV receivers using RGB with "sync on green" or RGB with
"separate H and V sync". Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i, 480p or H DTV 1080i. All other
digital TV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the HDTV receiver to one of the compatible signals. Industry standards for DTV RGB signals systems, synchronization and signal strengths
are not currently established. These inputs will not be compatible with all HDTV receivers that
offer RGB. If your HDTV receiver offers both HDTV component video signals and HDTV RGB
signals, Mitsubishi suggests you use the HDTV component video signals. Please check the HDTV
receiver specifications before connecting.
