Convergence
(Figure 1)
Your Mitsubishi TV has three picture tubes
which need to be aligned to properly converge the projected light beams on the
screen. 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.

When you select a TV or Movie rating, you are selecting the highest level of program that will be allowed to be
viewed. As an example, if you select TV-PG, you are allowing programs rated TV-Y, TV-Y7, TV-G and TV-PG to
be seen and blocking programs rated TV-14 and TV-MA. If you select a movie rating of PG-13, you are allowing
movies rated G, PG and PG-13 to be seen and blocking movies rated R, NC-17, and X. When you select a TV
Content category, you will block all TV programs that have the same content category listing. As an example, if
you select to block V (Violence) at the TV-14 level, you will also block any program that has the V category listing
at the TV-PG rating level.
IMPORTANT: V-Chip is effective only for programs viewed on Ant-A and Ant-B or from devices connected to Inputs
1-5. It is not effective for programs viewed on Ant-DTV or devices connected to Component 1 and 2, INP-DTV
or from IEEE 1394 devices.
IMPORTANT: Videotapes, laser discs, and DVD’s may not contain V-Chip rating signals, in this case V-Chip cannot
block the program or movie.
IMPORTANT: Broadcasters are not currently required to include V-Chip rating signals at this time. If the broadcaster
does not include the V-Chip rating signal, V-Chip cannot block the program.

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

Video media are live TV broadcast such

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

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
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.

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.
