Each picture tube projects a single color of red, blue or green. During production, your TV was carefully adjusted to properly align these colors. However, moving the TV, or the TV’s location in relation to the Earth’s magnetic poles, or the passage of time can cause these adjustments to change. As a special feature, you have the ability to adjust the red and blue light beams in reference to the xed gr een l ight beam. This process is called convergence adjustment. Since the memory for the convergence is separate for 480i/480p and for HD 1080i signals, you may need to adjust the convergence while watching each of these types of signals. Figure 1. Setup menu, (Convergence selected) Reset Factory Defaults (Figure 1) This allows you to reset the convergence to the original factory settings. The message “Convergence reset completed” will be displayed when the factory defaults have been restored.

Listen to (for Ant-A and Ant-B) determines how your TV will receive a broadcast audio signal and play back the sound you hear. Your choices are: • Stereo: Default setting. The TV will play stereo broadcasts in stereo and mono broadcasts in mono. The word “Stereo” will be displayed when you tune to a channel broadcasting stereo. • SAP (Second Audio Program): Additional monaural soundtrack that you cannot hear during normal TV viewing. The SAP signal might be related to the program you are watching, such as a soundtrack in a foreign language, or unrelated to the program you are watching, such as a weather report. If a SAP signal is broadcast, the letters “SAP” will be displayed when you tune to the channel. • Mono: Reduces background noise, and should be used when receiving a weak stereo audio signal. All audio will be played mono with this setting. Listen to (for Ant-DTV and IEEE 1394 devices) Determines what possible language you will hear.

Part III: Setup A/V Setting Descriptions: Video Video Settings Contrast provides a slider to adjust the white-to-black level. Low contrast shows a variety of shades in darker images, while high contrast shows darker images more uniformly black and makes colors appear more vibrant. Brightness provides a slider to adjust the overall brightness of the picture. Sharpness provides a slider to adjust the detail and clarity. Tint provides a slider to adjust the proportion of red to green. Color Temp (Color Temperature) allows you to adjust how white images are displayed. Your choices are: • Low 6500K or Low (for DTV): White images will have a warm cast to them. This adjustment is an average and can vary due to ambient room lighting, video scene brightness and the TV’s age. The Low 6500K represents the 6500K industry standard for NTSC (non-DTV) pictures. • Medium: White images will be balanced between the Low (warm) and High (cool) settings. • High: White images will have a cool cast to them. This setting may provide the most realistic picture under bright lighting. Image Type maximizes the original camera media: Video or Film. Video media uses a video camera and is created at 30 frames per second. Film media uses a lmc ame r a and i scr eat ed at 24 frames per second. Examples of Video media are live TV broadcast such as news, special events, or video taped programs. Examples of lmme di aar e motion pictures, made-for-TV movies, and many prime time programs. Filmed media is converted by the broadcaster or home video company to 30 frames per second to match TV or video standards. This conversion can leave subtle “picture artifacts” or conversion errors. Setting the Image Type to Film can reduce the picture artifacts and improve the picture quality, when viewing a movie from a 480i device such as a VCR, standard DVD or antenna. A/V Setting Descriptions: Video Color provides a slider to adjust the color intensity. Video Noise use reduction to reduce minor noise (graininess) in the broadcast received on Ant-A and Ant-B.

PIP/POP Formats Standard 4 5 Stretched: 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. Narrow: This format will display narrow (4:3) images in their original shape, and add stationary gray side bars to ll the screen. Expand Narrow X PIP X X Side by Side X X POP Display Formats 3 Standard: This is the full screen format. HDTV signals will automatically use this format. This format is also useful to display Anamorphic DVDs that have 1.78:1 or 1.85:1 aspect ratios. Anamorphic DVDs that have the 2.35:1 aspect ratio will still display black bars at the top and bottom. Narrow (4:3) images will be stretched evenly from side to side. Expand: This will enlarge the picture, cropping off some of the image at the top and bottom. This is useful to reduce the letterbox top and bottom bars of nonanamorphic DVDs or to correct narrow (4:3) images that have been stretched in the Standard format. X Caution should be observed when using the Narrow format due to the stationary gray side bars. Please see page 70 for guidelines concerning stationary images. 65 Part IV: Operation Programming the Remote Control to Control NetCommand™ A/V Products To Program the Remote to Control NetCommand A/V Products: (See NetCommand Supported Devices, page 16, for the list of A/V products supported by the NetCommand System.) 1 2 Programming Remote Control 3 66 4 Move the slide switch at the top of the remote to the TV layer.

Uneven picture tube aging is NOT covered by your warranty. 70 The normal use of a TV should include a mixture of TV picture types. The most frequently used picture types should ll the screen with constantly moving images rather than stationary images or patterns. Displaying the same stationary patterns over extended periods of time, or displaying the same stationary pattern frequently can leave a subtle but permanent ghost image. To avoid this, mix your viewing pattern. Do not show the same stationary image for more than 15% of your total TV viewing in any one week. Display constantly moving and changing images that ll the scr een wh enever possible. This projection TV uses picture tubes to project the image to the screen. All picture tubes age with use. As they age, their light output is gradually reduced. Normal TV pictures ll the scr een wi thconst ant ly changing images. Under these conditions, picture tubes age at an even rate across the entire screen. This maintains a TV picture that is evenly bright over the whole screen. Stationary images or images that only partially ll the scr een ( l eavi ng bl ack or colored bars to ll the scr een) , wh en used over extended periods of time or when viewed repeatedly, can cause uneven aging of the phosphors and leave subtle ghosts of the stationary images in the picture. Still or stationary images may be received from broadcasters, cable channels, satellite channels, DVD discs, video tapes, laser discs, on-line services, web/internet searching devices, video games, and digital TV tuner/converter boxes. Examples of these types of images can be, but are not limited to the following: Letterbox top/bottom black bars: shown at the top and bottom of the TV screen when you watch a widescreen (16:9) movie on a standard (4:3) TV. Side bar images: solid bars shown on each side of an image when watching a standard (4:3) program on a widescreen (16:9) TV. Stock-market report bars: ticker running at the bottom of the TV screen. Shopping channel logos & pricing displays: bright graphics that are shown constantly or repeatedly in the same location. Video game patterns and scoreboards Bright station logos: moving or low-contrast graphics are less likely to cause uneven aging of the picture tubes. On-line (internet) web sites: or any other stationary or repetitive computer style images. Appendix A: Bypassing the V-Chip Lock Appendix A: 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. When entering the V-Chip Lock menu, this process deletes your old passcode and prompts you to enter a new passcode. Pressing HOME at this time will cancel the entire passcode. 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. Cut along the dotted line and le bypass instructions in a safe place for future reference. Appendix A: Bypassing the V-Chip Lock Appendix A: Bypassing the V-Chip Lock If you forget your passcode, you can view the locked TV without entering your passcode. This is done by pressing the number 9 and QV buttons on the remote TV control at the same time, when your passcode is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV. When changing or deleting your passcode, you must use the remote control included with this TV. You cannot use a Mitsubishi remote control from another component or a “universal” remote. 71 71 72 This page has been intentionally left blank Appendix B: Input Connection Compatiblity Component-1 and Component-2 Inputs INP-DTV This input is compatible with most standard DTV and satellite receivers with component video (YPbPr) outputs. Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i/480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types. Please check the DTV receiver speci cat ions bef or e connecting. This input is compatible with some DTV receivers using RGB with sync on green or with “separate H and V sync”. Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i, 480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types. Industry standards for DTV RGB signals systems, synchronization, timing, and signal strengths are not currently established. These inputs will not be compatible with all DTV receivers that offer RGB. If your DTV receiver offers both DTV component video signals and DTV RGB signals, Mitsubishi suggests you use the DTV component video signals. Please check the DTV receiver speci cat ions bef or e connect ing.

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. 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 CLEANING-VSS, by calling (800) 553-7278. DO NOT use any kind of abrasive, liquid, or spray cleaner on the surface of the TV screen or Diamond Shield™. (Diamond Series Models WS-55909, WS-65909 or WS-73909) Anything abrasive can scratch the anti-glare coating of the Diamond Shield™ and household and window cleaners can remove the coating. Follow the instructions for cleaning top and sides, however, moisten the cloth with only water. Do not use any cleaning chemicals on the Diamond Shield™. DO NOT use Mitsubishi Screen Cleaner on the Anti-Glare Diamond Shield™ Cloth speaker grills: Lightly brush with a soft brush. If necessary, you can vacuum using the brush and hose attachments of your vacuum cleaner. Do not use the beater brush section on the grill cloth.
