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.

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
short-out parts that could result in fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on or into the TV.
15.Outdoor Antenna Grounding
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the TV, be
sure the antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide some
protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges.

Special Features
Your new High Definition widescreen television has many special features that make it the perfect center of your home
entertainment system, including:
High Definition DLP™ Display System
Your widescreen Mitsubishi HDTV uses Texas Instruments most advanced Digital Light Processing™ technology for
rear projection televisions. This TV is truly a high-performance multimedia monitor uniquely capable of both stunning
high-definition video images and clear, detailed, high-resolution PC images. Your TV is able to accept video signals
from an antenna or direct cable in standard video scanning rates of 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p. It is also able
to accept, through the HDMI 2 connection, signals with PC resolutions from VGA (640 x 480) through XGA (1024 x 768).
When used with a compatible graphics card and controlling software, this TV is also able to accept the custom PC
resolution of 720p (1280 x 720). To connect a PC to HDMI 2, you need a PC video card with DVI or HDMI output. Next
you need to perform NetCommand setup for the HDMI 2 PC input so that the TV knows to apply the correct PC-signal
processing. All of the compatible video and PC signals will be converted to 1080p for final display; some signals will,
however, add black side bars, top and bottom bars, or both to fill the screen, and some signals will display standard
video overscan.
TV Guide On Screen® Interactive Program Guide System
An eight-day on-screen program guide that can be used with cable, over-the-air and CableCARD™ reception. The
subscription-free guide system lists regular, digital and high-definition programming. This system allows multiple
sorting options and easy program recording. Program listings are downloaded while your TV is turned off, so that you
have current program information available every day. Note that when the system is first set up, it may take up to 24
hours to begin to receive TV program listings. It may take one week to receive all eight days of TV program listings.
Digital Cable Ready (CableCARD™)
Your widescreen Mitsubishi HDTV is “Plug-and-Play” ready. It can descramble a cable provider’s one-way digital
signals with the use of a CableCARD security module. The CableCARD is used in place of a traditional cable box
to access digital cable programming (including high definition). Contact your local cable provider for availability
information and service details.
NetCommand® Home Network Control System
Your widescreen Mitsubishi HDTV offers a new level of networking to combine selected older products with new and
future digital products. NetCommand supports IEEE 1394 connections, Audio Video Control system (AV/C), 5C copy
protection and IR control of selected older products such as VCRs, DVD players, cable boxes or satellite receivers.
NetCommand includes the ability to learn remote control signals directly from many devices, allowing you to customize
the NetCommand system in a way that works best for your viewing
16:9 Widescreen Picture Format
Enjoy a full theatrical experience in the comfort of your home. View pictures as film directors intended them. Digital TV
broadcasts, DVDs and newer video game consoles support this widescreen format.
Memory Card Reader
You can display a slide show of your favorite JPEG pictures or listen to MP3 or WMA audio selections that have been
recorded on compatible memory cards.

1. Antenna (ANT-1 MAIN, ANT-2 AUX)
ANT-1 MAIN and ANT-2 AUX can each receive both
digital and analog over-the-air channels from a VHF/UHF
antenna or non-scrambled digital/analog cable source.
Your primary viewing signal source should be connected
to ANT-1 MAIN. ANT-1 MAIN must be used to view
premium subscription cable TV service authorized by the
CableCARD™ access card. The CableCARD access card
is provided by your local cable company. ANT-2 AUX can
receive over-the-air or non-scrambled cable signals.
2. IR EMITTER NetCommand®
IR Emitters connected to these jacks are used by the
NetCommand system of the TV to control external analog
devices such as cable boxes, VCRs, DVDs, satellite
receivers and audio receivers. This system is also
coordinated with the TV Guide On Screen® system for
the control of cable boxes and to activate the record
feature of your VCR. Either connection can be used for
NetCommand functions.
3. INPUT 1 and 2

must choose to connect only one. They cannot both be
connected at the same time.
4. COMPONENT 1, 2, and 3 Inputs
YPbPr (480i/480p/720p/1080i)
These inputs can be used for the connection of devices with
component video outputs, such as a DVD player, external
HDTV receiver, or compatible video game system. Please
see Appendix A for signal compatibility.
5. 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, such as DVI output from a personal computer.
6. AUDIO OUTPUT, RECORD OUTPUT
AUDIO OUTPUT sends analog audio of the program
currently shown on the screen to an A/V surround sound
receiver or stereo system. Digital audio from digital
channels, FireWire® (DTV Link/IEEE 1394) devices and
HDMI devices is converted to analog audio by the TV. If
you do not have a digital A/V receiver, this should be the
only audio connection between the TV and your analog
A/V receiver or stereo system.
RECORD OUTPUT sends analog audio and video to
a VCR for recording purposes. These signals may not
be the same as those of the program that is currently
TV Back Panel, continued
being shown on screen. Signals from digital channels
and FireWire (IEEE 1394) devices are converted to analog
signals. There is no video signal when copy restrictions
are in effect. Audio alone is output when a Component
input or the HDMI input is selected for recording.
7. HDMI™ 1 and 2
The HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) supports
uncompressed standard and high-definition digital video
formats and PCM digital audio format.
Use these inputs to connect to EIA/CEA-861 compliant
devices such as a high-definition receiver or DVD player.
These inputs support 480i, 480p, 720p and 1080i video
formats.
These inputs can also be used as a DVI connection with
separate analog audio inputs. An optional HDMI-to-DVI
adaptor or cable is necessary to make this connection
and may be available from your local electronics retailer.
When using the optional HDMI-to-DVI 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.
HDMI 2
HDMI 2 also allows the TV to display DVI or HDMI output
from a PC. To view PC video on the TV, you must activate
the PC option in NetCommand. You can do this during
initial NetCommand setup by selecting the PC option
in the Device Setup screen. To do this at any time
afterwards, use the NetCommand Add function.
To listen to audio from a PC when using PC DVI output,
you must connect the PC audio output to the TV’s DVI
Analog Audio 2, located above the HDMI 2 input.
8. DTV Link™/IEEE 1394
These jacks allow the TV to connect to external IEEE
1394 digital products by means of a single cable. Two
jacks are provided for this purpose, which allow for a high
degree of flexibility for connecting your NetCommand
controlled system. Detailed information regarding
IEEE 1394 connection requirements is in Chapter 2,
“Connecting.”
9. CableCARD™ Slot
The CableCARD access card from your cable TV service
provider is inserted into this slot. The top of the card
should face in the direction indicated by CARD TOP .
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
23 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.
10. Digital Audio Output
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. In most cases, this should be
the only audio connection between the TV and your A/V
receiver. If you have MP3 audio from memory cards,
however, you need to connect the TV’s analog AUDIO
OUTPUT (left and right) to your A/V receiver.

Connecting External Devices and 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 can 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. If you connect devices to inputs other than the
ones shown as presets, you must change the NetCommand setup accordingly. See the Edit NetCommand information
starting on page 45.

Using a CableCARD
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
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
programs 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 capable 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 data-enhanced 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.
To use a CableCARD, the primary incoming
cable must be connected to ANT-1 MAIN.

The emitter end being used can be secured in place
using double stick tape.
The emitters connected to these jacks are used by the
NetCommand system and by TV Guide On Screen® to
control other devices such as VCRs, DVD players, Cable
boxes and Satellite receivers.
•
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 IR Emitter
Cable to either one of the IR Output NetCommand
jacks on the TV back panel.
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.
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 will be somewhere
between these two positions. This is usually
enough accuracy for the placement of the IR
emitters.
•

With some devices, the emitter works better facing
downward from the top of the device. Some
experimentation may be needed.

2. Run the cable for each of the emitter ends under,
alongside, 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.

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
Compatible A/V devices include some, but not all, cable
boxes, D-VHS VCRs, A/V discs, and future products. It
is also 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 and DV video as
provided by some camcorders. If the TV is unable to
decode the digital signal supplied by your camcorder, try
S-video with analog audio connections instead. 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 HDMI
video.
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 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 is 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) is designed to provide
basic controls such as play, stop, channel selection,
and volume, as appropriate for the device.
The IEEE 1394 interface may not provide reliable control
signals for some DV camcorders, especially older models.
If your camcorder operates incorrectly or not at all, use
the camcorder’s control buttons instead of the IEEE 1394
connection.
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.
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
(two-position) 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 device and a slower device, make the slower
device the source and make the faster device the
recorder.
Do not use an IEEE 1394 cable over 15 feet in length
between each device.
This TV is an IEEE 1394a device. It can be used
with a 1394b system when an IEEE-1394a-to-1394b
convertor is used. 1394b systems are capable of
greater distances and multi-room applications.
IMPORTANT
DV Camcorder Playback
A. When viewing DV camcorders, it is normal
for temporary audio and video distortion to
occur under conditions such as:
• Playback start and stop
• Playback pause
• Forward or reverse picture search
B. Some DV Camcorder models are not
compatible with this TV’s IEEE 1394 system.
Because of this, the “New 1394 Device”
screen will not appear when the camcorder
is connected. For playback of incompatible
DV camcorders, try S‑video with analog
audio connections instead.

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
TV
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.

Chapter 2. Connecting
The 6-pin connector can send
the same digital audio, video,
and control signals as the 4-pin
connector, but the 6-pin connector
can also 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.
Digital
VCR
Digital
DVD
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.
Digital
VCR #1
6 pin to 4 pin adaptor
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 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.
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. 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 check marked
and the audio for the AVR input is not 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.
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.
• If your A/V Receiver’s remote control has an Analog/Digital Audio key, you can use the GUIDE key with the
following models to control switching:
Mitsubishi M-VR900
Denon AVR-2700
Integra DTR-9.1
Kenwood VR-2080
To make the switch, press the Device key on the TV’s remote control, and from the Device Selection menu,
press the Audio key. Then, with the A/V Receiver highlighted, press the GUIDE key to make the switch.
•
If you have some other A/V Receiver model, use the TV’s learn function to learn the analog/digital audio
code for the GUIDE key. Follow the instructions above for using the GUIDE key.
•
If your A/V Receiver has an Analog/Digital selection key on the front panel only, and not on the remote, then
your only option is to use that key to perform switching.
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 check mark the video box. Make sure the TV input audio box and both the audio and video boxes for
the AVR input are not check marked. You should also name this device so you can easily identify it on the Device
Selection Menu. You can also use Input 3 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 Component-1 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.

NetCommand® Introduction
NetCommand makes your TV the heart of your Home Theater
NetCommand® is an intelligent control system that makes your Mitsubishi TV the heart of your home theater. With
NetCommand, the TV sends signals to the other devices in the system via the IR emitters, telling the devices to play,
record, change inputs, adjust volume, change channels and many more functions. All of this is accomplished with one
remote control and without changing control layers.
IR Learning and IEEE 1394 Support
The IR “Learning” feature of NetCommand allows the TV to learn the
remote control signals for new devices that the TV is not preprogrammed
to operate. NetCommand® also includes the capability of controlling IEEE
1394 devices by sending control signals on a FireWire® cable.
Using NetCommand is completely optional
When you first turn on the TV, the NetCommand Setup Wizard launches. If you decide to use NetCommand, follow
the on-screen instructions. If you choose not to use it right away, simply quit the Setup Wizard and NetCommand will
remain inactive. Later, if you decide to use NetCommand, you can easily access the Setup Wizard.
NetCommand and Levels of Control
When you set up NetCommand, you decide how much control you want the TV to have over your home theater system.
You have the choice of performing a basic, limited, or complete NetCommand setup.
• Basic Setup
In a basic setup, NetCommand will:
◊ automatically switch to the correct TV input when you want to view programming from a different device. All
you do is select the device from the on-screen device selection menu. This saves you from having to search for
the correct input every time you want to change devices. Unused inputs are automatically deactivated so that
you don’t see them in the menu.
◊ show an on-screen icon for each device connected to the TV so you always know what devices are available.
Note that with a basic setup, you still need to use the remote control specific to each device.
•
Limited Setup
In a limited setup, you get the benefits of the basic setup plus NetCommand control over the specific devices you
have chosen. Use this type of setup if you:
◊ only want NetCommand to control 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 to control 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 to control these devices.
•
Full Setup
Perform a full setup if you want NetCommand to:
◊ control a surround sound A/V receiver.
◊ automatically change input selections for the A/V receiver.
◊ control all devices with the TV’s remote, including the A/V receiver.
NetCommand Helps You Manage Your Home Theater
With the NetCommand Review screen you can:
• view a summary of all devices connected to the TV and the input used for each device.
• deactivate or turn off unused input connections; reactivate or turn them on.
If you need to change your setup, the NetCommand sub-menu lets you easily
• add new devices.
• deleted devices you have disconnected.
• change device and input selections.
38
Chapter 3. NetCommand Setup and Editing
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 to use the original remote control of the device, or program the TV remote to operate these devices in the
traditional manner.

and VCR so the TV Guide On Screen system
can control these devices.
IEEE 1394 Devices and NetCommand® Control
See pages 33 and 34 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 32).
2. On the Name for 1394 Device screen (Figure 29, page 54) use ADJUST and ENTER to check mark the Analog
Connection box.
3. Select the device type on the IEEE 1394 Device Type screen (Figure 30, page 55) of SAT or similar tuning device
4. If desired, using the ADJUST buttons enter a custom Name on the Name screen (Figure 20, page 50).
5. At the Device screen, Select “Other” as a manufacturer and then highlight “Learn” and press Next (Figure 31, page
55).
6. Follow the device learning instructions found on the screen(s) or in the Edit NetCommand section of Chapter 3.
7. The Connection screen (Figure 32, page 55) follows the learning screens. If analog connections are used, select the
correct inputs. If only digital connections are used, do not check the video or audio boxes.
8. 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
Name for 1394 Device Screen
Addition of IEEE 1394 devices is a special case of
NetCommand setup because the devices are detected
automatically. You review, edit, and delete these devices
through NetCommand just as you would any other
devices.
If you choose to add the discovered IEEE 1394 device,
the Name for 1394 Device screen appears. Enter a new
name for the device or use the default name that appears
automatically. The name used in this screen is the name
that appears in the Device Selection menu.
When you connect an IEEE 1394 device to the TV network
and power it on, the new device automatically announces
its presence. This process is called device discovery and
can take up to one minute.
The DV option applies only to digital camcorders at
this time and is typically detected automatically by the
TV. If your camcorder uses DV formatting but the box is
unchecked, add the check mark manually.
Some non-audio/video or incompatible IEEE 1394 devices,
such as personal computers (PCs), may not announce
their presence to the TV. The TV is not able to show these
devices in the Device Selection menu. They can, however,
coexist and are still available to other devices on the IEEE
1394 network that are compatible with these non-audio/
video devices.
To use the analog capability of some IEEE 1394 devices,
such as some DVCRs and cable boxes, check the Analog
Connection box.
• Some DVCRs, for example, 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 to make
analog recordings from an antenna or cable
system.
• Some cable boxes with IEEE 1394 connections
require an analog connection for on-screen
guides and emergency notices.
Try using the Cable/SAT/DTV position of the TV remote
control to see if it can control operation of IEEE 1394
cable boxes and satellite receivers. If not, use the remote
control that came with the device.
New 1394 Device Screen

Note: You never need to check both the DV and Analog
Connection check boxes for a device.
When your TV discovers a new IEEE 1394 device, the

Not Add” depending on whether or not you want the
device added 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

when the device is selected from the Device Selection
menu. With this setup, the picture is shown via the
analog connection but control is through the IEEE 1394
connection.
Figure 30. 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.

Peer-to-Peer Connections
What is a Peer-to-Peer Connection?
Figure 9
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. With the connection established, you can
turn off the TV or use it to watch another device.
For example, the TV can set up a connection for an IEEE
1394 cable box that sends a program to another device
for viewing. NetCommand establishes the connection
between the two devices. Set up a recording over a
peer-to-peer connection the same as you would any other
NetCommand-controlled recording.
NOTE: Analog or traditional (non-digital) devices can
not be used for peer-to-peer connections.
Figure 9. Recording Setup screen for peer-to-peer
connection

the Recording Setup screen:
• select Record from the Record menu.
• press REC on the remote control when viewing a
recordable source.
Your TV can stop recordings automatically and it can
send the signals from one external playback device
to another external recording device. It is also able to
convert digital channels and IEEE 1394 device signals to
analog signals. These converted signals can be recorded
on NetCommand-compatible analog VHS and S-VHS
VCRs connected to the RECORD OUTPUT/VIDEO and
AUDIO outputs on the back of the TV.
You can schedule the recording to take place at a later
time and program the recording duration for a minimum
of 30 minutes and a maximum of six hours (in 30-minute
increments). The default is one hour.
When a digital recording is being made, the TV can direct
the signals to the recording device using the IEEE 1394
cable. In the case of an analog recording, (as to a VCR)
the TV converts the digital signals to analog format and
sends the analog output to the VCR through the RECORD
OUTPUT jacks.
During the recording, you can view a different device or
power off the TV. See Appendix I for more information.

Operation of PIP and POP
You can display programs from analog channels, analog inputs, or analog devices as picture-in-picture (PIP) and picture-outside-picture (POP). The TV has a second analog tuner for non-scrambled analog channels received on ANT‑1
and displays them as the PIP/POP sub-pictures. Digital channels and devices can be shown as the main picture but
cannot be the sub-picture. PC screens can be viewed as the main picture with PIP.
Press PIP/POP to activate the PIP/POP option. With each
press of the PIP/POP button on the TV remote control,
(within seconds of each press), the PIP/POP cycles

Chapter 6. Additional Features
TV 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 from which to choose.
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.
Note: Not all formats are available for PIP/
POP. Side-by-Side is only available in Standard
and Expand formats. Three POP is available
in Standard format only. PC formats vary
depending on the PC signal.
DVD Definitions:
Anamorphic (or Enhanced for Wide-Screen TV’s):
These DVDs are recorded in a special way to properly
show wide-screen images on 16:9 TV sets in the
Standard format mode. This is the recommended choice.
Non-Anamorphic (or 4:3, 1:33:1, Letter box 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 Letter boxed, 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.
Signal Definitions
480i Signals: Traditional analog interlaced signals from
or through ANT-1 and 2, INPUT 1 and 2, COMPONENT 1–3,
and HDMI 1 and 2.
480p Signals: Progressive-scan analog DVD signals on
COMPONENT inputs and HDMI 1 and 2.
720p & 1080i Signals: High-definition analog signals
received through COMPONENT 1–3 and HDMI 1 and 2.
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).
Format Definitions
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.
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
analog 480i, 480p and digital SD 4:3 signals only.
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 analog 480i and 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 analog 480i and 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. When no PIP
is displayed, you can press ADJUST up or down to
vertically adjust the position of the picture. Available for
analog 480i and 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 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.

IEEE 1394 Devices
Symptom
Suggested Solution
1.
Excessive digital artifacts when viewing an IEEE
1394 device.
• The IEEE 1394 cable is too long; 15 feet between devices is the maximum.
• There may be a slow device in the middle of the IEEE 1394 network. Move the
slow devices to the end so that connections for faster devices do not pass
through them.
2.
D-VHS recordings for digital cable have
drop-outs (loss of picture or sound), or no
playback.
Digital cable signals on IEEE 1394 can exceed the data rate standards
supported by DVCR.

NetCommand® 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.
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.
The HDMI input is compliant with EIA-861B standards for standard, extended and high definition video,
digital audio and HDCP copy protection. HDMI input 1, however, is not intended for use with personal

After entering the correct codes in each position of the
remote control, use the slide switch to select which
product will respond when an operational button is
pressed. Only one of the below devices is allowed for
each slide switch position.
TV position:
TV, NetCommand® Controlled Devices
Cable/SAT/DTV position:
Cable box

Appendices
Appendix G: Cleaning and Service
IMPORTANT
DO NOT use any kind of abrasive cleaner on
the surface of the TV screen.
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.
Screen:
• 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:
•
DO NOT allow liquid to enter the TV through the ventilation slots or any crevice.
•
DO NOT use any strong or abrasive cleaners as these can scratch the surfaces.
•
DO NOT use any cleaners with ammonia, bleach, alcohol, benzine, or thinners as these can dull the surfaces.
•
DO NOT spray liquids or cleaners directly on the TV’s surfaces.
•
DO NOT scrub or rub the TV harshly. Wipe it gently.
Service
If you are unable to correct a problem with your TV, consult your Mitsubishi dealer or a Mitsubishi Authorized Warranty
Service Center.
•
DO NOT adjust any controls other than those described in this Owner’s Guide.
•
DO NOT remove the protective back cover of your TV.
Menus not described and shown in this owner’s guide are designed for factory use and for authorized service
personnel. Damage caused to the TV by non-authorized changes or changes to these menus made by non-authorized
persons are not covered under warranty.

Appendix H: 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. Allow the television to cool for
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 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.
When the end of the lamp’s life is approaching, the TV displays a warning message for one minute when you power on
the TV. The message will reappear the next five times you turn on the TV. After you change the lamp cartridge, you
must reset the lamp reminder through the TV Setup menu. Otherwise, the warning message will appear again before
necessary. Mitsubishi warrants the lamp for one (1) year from the date of original TV purchase at retail.
TO ORDER A NEW LAMP:
While Under Warranty
After Warranty
Call (800) 553-7278. Order a new lamp for your
TV model as shown below.
Call (800) 332-2119. Please have model number,
serial number, and TV purchase date available.
TV Model Number
Lamp Part Number
WD-52628
WD-62628

WD-73727
915P027010
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 it. Careless treatment can result in injury or fire.
Do not touch the lamp glass element. It may be very hot and break, causing 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.
Do not touch the lamp glass elements. Oils from your fingers may cause premature lamp failure.
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 at:
www.eiae.org.
IMPORTANT
Reset the lamp hours through the TV setup menu each time you replace the lamp cartridge.
Otherwise, the lamp warning message will reappear sooner than necessary.

Appendix H: Lamp Cartridge Replacement, continued
WARNING
THE GRILLE/COVER IS PROVIDED WITH AN
INTERLOCK TO REDUCE THE RISK OF EXCESSIVE
ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION. DO NOT DEFEAT
ITS PURPOSE OR ATTEMPT TO SERVICE THE
TV WITHOUT REMOVING THE GRILLE/COVER
COMPLETELY.
1. Turn TV power off and allow the lamp to cool at least
one hour before proceeding.
2. After the lamp has cooled, remove the plastic air
exhaust grille/cover by removing two screws with a #2
(large) Phillips screwdriver. See figure 1.
3. With a large flat-blade screwdriver, loosen the three
shiny screws securing the lamp cartridge until they
disengage from the mating threads. These are
captive screws and cannot be separated from the
lamp cartridge.
Figure 1.
4. Fully open up the bag supplied with the replacement
lamp and set the opened bag aside. If no bag was
supplied, use any available small paper bag.
5. Grasp the wire handle of the lamp cartridge and
pull the old cartridge straight out towards you. See
figures 2 and 3. Note the orientation of the cartridge.
CAUTION: Do not tilt or rotate the cartridge, as small
glass fragments may fall out.
6. Without tilting or putting down the lamp cartridge,
insert it into the opened bag. Close the bag while
being careful that no glass particles fall out.
Figure 2.
7. Do not touch the glass parts of the new lamp
cartridge. Insert the new cartridge into the TV in the
same orientation as the old cartridge. Push on the
cartridge housing until it is fully seated.
8. With either your fingers or the screwdriver, gently
tighten the three screws. If using a screwdriver,
use only two fingers for final tightening. AVOID
OVERTIGHTENING!
9. Replace the plastic grille/cover and retaining screws.
10. WASH YOUR HANDS THOROUGHLY, AS THIS LAMP
CONTAINS MERCURY.
11. Contact your local authorities or the Electronic
Industries Alliance at www.eiae.com for
lamp-disposal or recycling instructions. Do not
dispose of the old lamp with common trash.
Handle
Figure 3.
12. Reset the Lamp Reminder from the TV Setup menu

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.
e. This DLP Projection Television uses a single DLP chip 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.

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 by using the

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.
c. Proof of purchase date from an authorized MITSUBISHI dealer is required when requesting warranty service. Present

2. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER:
a. Up to .01% pixel outages (small dot picture elements that are dark or incorrectly illuminated).
b. Damage to the 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

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

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.
