Important Information About Your TV
Installation Notes
Cleaning Recommendations
Stand Requirement
Mitsubishi does not design, manufacture or sell matching bases for 833 series model televisions (WD-57833,
WD-65833, WD-73833). When selecting a stand, base
or other furniture to support the TV, please make sure it
is designed with the appropriate dimensions for stability and to support the TV’s total weight as well as the
weight of any additional equipment you plan to store.
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.
Ocasionally clean dust build-up from the air-intake
grilles on the back and sides of the TV. Clean using a
vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment.
Custom cabinet installation must allow for proper
air circulation around the television.

General Cleaning Precautions
•
•
•
TV Software
Do not attempt to update the software of this TV with
software or USB drives not provided by or authorized by
Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America, Inc. Non-authorized software may damage the TV and will not be covered
by the warranty.
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.
•
•
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 containing ammonia,
bleach, alcohol, benzene, 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.
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, in a wet basement, 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, adult or pet 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.

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.
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.
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. This is a safety feature. 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.
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.
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.
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.

(e) If the TV has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged.
(f) When the TV exhibits a distinct change in performance - this indicates a need for service.
Replacement Parts. When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician has used replacement parts specified by the
manufacturer or have the same characteristics as the original part. Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric shock or other hazards.
Safety Check. Upon completion of any service or repair to the TV, ask the service technician to perform safety checks to determine that the TV
is in safe operating condition.

Special Features of Your TV
Your new high-definition widescreen television has
many special features that make it the perfect center of
your home entertainment system, including:
Component Video Inputs. Also called Y/Pb/Pr
inputs, these inputs receive standard analog video
formats of 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i high-definition signals. This provides a high level of flexibility
when connecting DVD players/recorders, cable
boxes, and satellite receivers.
HDMI 1.3 Inputs. These inputs accept digital 480i,
480p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p video signals plus
PCM digital stereo signals. The HDMI™ inputs can
also accept a variety of PC signals and resolutions. These inputs are compatible with Deep Color and
x.v.Color.
Used with an adapter, these inputs also accept
compatible digital DVI video signals. HDMI
inputs provide additional high-performance,
high-definition connections for maximum flexibility
in your choice of home theater products. The HDMI
inputs are HDCP copy-protection compatible.
IEEE 1394 Digital Interfaces that receive and
send compressed digital signals, including highdefinition signals, along with digital audio and
control signals between devices such as the TV, a
digital cable box, an A/V disc, and a D-VHS digital
video recorder.
1080p High-Definition DLP Display System
Easy Connect Auto Input Sensing
Your Mitsubishi HDTV uses Texas Instruments Digital
Light Processing™ technology for rear-projection TVs
to create the picture you see on screen. All images
are displayed at 1080p. The TV uses Plush 1080p® to
convert lower-resolution signals to 1080p for display. The TV can also accept 1080p original signals and
maintain them at 1080p through all processing until
displayed.
Easy Connect™ Auto Input Sensing automatically recognizes when you plug in an input and prompts you to
assign a name to it. The TV ignores any unused inputs,
so the result is an uncluttered Input Selection menu
where you can easily find and select connected devices
by name.
16:9 Widescreen Picture Format
NetCommand with IR Learning
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.
Your Mitsubishi HDTV offers a new level of networking
that seamlessly integrates selected older A/V products
with new and future digital products. NetCommand®
supports IR (infrared) control of products such as
VCRs, DVD players, cable boxes, and satellite receivers. NetCommand can “learn” remote control signals
directly from many devices, allowing you to create a
customized NetCommand-controlled home-theater
system.
Integrated HDTV Tuner
Your widescreen Mitsubishi HDTV has an internal HDTV
tuner able to receive both over-the-air HDTV broadcasts (received via an antenna) and non-scrambled
digital cable broadcasts, including non-scrambled
HDTV cable programming.

4. IR Emitter NetCommand
If you are connecting an antenna or direct cable without
a cable box, connect the main antenna or cable source
to ANT 1/MAIN. Use ANT 2/AUX for a second source.
IR Emitters connected to this jack are used by the TV’s
NetCommand system to control external IR remote
controlled analog devices such as cable boxes, VCRs,
DVDs, satellite receivers and audio receivers.
ANT 1/MAIN and ANT 2/AUX can each receive digital
and analog over-the-air channels from a VHF/UHF
antenna or non-scrambled digital/analog cable source.
2. 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. If you have a digital A/V receiver,
in most cases this is the only audio connection needed
between the TV and your A/V receiver.
3. RS-232C
Use the RS-232C interface to receive control signals
from compatible home-theater control devices.
5. IEEE 1394 (also known as Firewire®)
These jacks allow the TV to connect to external IEEE
1394 digital products by means of a single cable. See
chapter 6, “NetCommand” for information regarding
IEEE 1394 connections and recording.
6. INPUT (audio and video; front and rear)
Input jacks can be used to connect a VCR, Super VHS
(S-VHS) VCR, DVD player, standard satellite receiver, or
other A/V device to the TV. The INPUT groups on the
back of the TV consist of jacks for composite video,
S-Video, and analog stereo audio. Note that when you
connect to the S-video jack, the composite video jack
is automatically disabled. INPUT 3 is a third set of composite video and stereo audio jacks located on the front
of the TV for convenience.

7. HDMI™ Inputs
9. DVI/PC AUDIO INPUT
The HDMI 1.3 (High Definition Multimedia Interface) supports uncompressed standard and high-definition digital
video formats and PCM digital stereo audio format.
Use the DVI/PC AUDIO INPUT when connecting a DVI
device to one of the TV’s HDMI inputs using a DVI-toHDMI cable. These jacks allow you to send left and
right analog audio from your computer or other DVI
device to the TV.
Use the HDMI inputs to connect to CEA-861 HDMI compliant devices such as a high-definition receiver or DVD
player. These inputs support 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i,
and 1080p video formats.
Mitsubishi recommends you use category 2 HDMI cables
to connect HDMI 1.3 source devices. High-speed category 2 cables bring you the full benefits of Deep Color
and x.v.Color.
These inputs can also accept digital DVI video inputs. To connect a DVI input, use an HDMI-to-DVI adapter or
cable plus analog audio cables. Connect the analog
audio cables to the DVI/PC AUDIO INPUT on the TV to
receive left and right stereo audio from your DVI device.
The TV’s HDMI inputs are compatible with many DVI-D
and HDMI computer video signals. See chapter 2, “TV
Setup” and Appendix A for additional information on PC
compatibility.
These inputs are HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Copy
Protection) compliant.
These inputs are certified for proper interoperability with other products certified by Simplay™.
HDMI Cable Categories
HDMI cables are available as Category 1 and
Category 2 versions.
• Category 2 Cables. Newer, HDMI 1.3-compliant DVD players, video games, and set-top
boxes require Category 2 cables. Use category
2 cables for these high-speed HD signals carrying extended color encodings (i.e., 30 or more
bits, also called Deep Color). Category 2 cables
are also suitable for standard HDTV signals.
• Category 1 Cables. Unmarked cables are
category 1 cables and are suitable for standard
HDTV signals.
8. AVR AUDIO OUTPUT
Use AVR AUDIO OUTPUT to send 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 and HDMI devices is converted to
analog audio by the TV. If using an analog A/V receiver
or stereo system, this is the only audio connection
needed between it and the TV.
10. COMPONENT (audio and video; front
and rear)
Y Pb Pr (480i/480p/720p/1080i)
Use these jacks to connect devices with component
video outputs, such as DVD players, external HDTV
receivers, or compatible video game systems. A third
set of component jacks is located on the front of the
TV and shares the left/right audio jacks and VIDEO/Y
jack with the INPUT 3 composite input. See Appendix A
specifications for signal compatibility.
11. RECORD OUTPUT
Use these composite video and left/right audio jacks
to send analog video and audio signals to an external
recording device such as a VCR. To make recordings
from this output, the TV must be in normal fullscreen mode rather than in Split Screen mode.
• You can watch another device while recording,
but not another channel.
• From this output you can record audio and
video signals from ANT 1, ANT 2, INPUT 1-3, and
IEEE 1394 devices.
• Digital signals from ANT 1, ANT 2, and IEEE
1394 devices are converted to analog video and
audio signals.
• Some signals cannot be recorded because of
copy-protection flags in the content.
12. 3D GLASSES EMITTER
The 3D GLASSES EMITTER jack is in place for future
gaming devices equipped with FX gaming 3D and dualview features. Use this jack to connect a special IR
emitter (supplied with the 3D glasses) that will synchronize your 3D glasses with the screen display.

IEEE 1394 Devices
Compatible IEEE 1394 Devices
Compatible A/V devices include some, but not all,
cable boxes, D-VHS VCRs, A/V discs, camcorders, and
future products. Some devices may have IEEE 1394
connectors but are not compatible with the TV. Areas
of compatibility to consider are:
1. Digital Video Signals
This TV can decode HDV (high-definition MPEG2 resolution) as provided by cable boxes and some camcorders. The TV cannot decode DV (standard-definition
resolution video). If the TV is unable to decode the
digital signal supplied by your camcorder, connect the
camcorder to the TV using analog audio plus composite video, S-video, or component video, or use HDMI
audio/video. 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 DVI/HDMI video.
2. Digital Audio Signals
When received with video signals, the TV can decode
Dolby Digital signals and MPEG audio signals.
The TV may be unable to pass incompatible digital audio
signals on the coaxial digital audio output. These signals
may pass to other devices, however, on IEEE 1394 cables.
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,
and cable boxes that are compatible with the following
IEEE 1394 control standards.
•
CEA-775. 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). Designed to provide
basic controls such as play, stop, channel selection,
and volume, as appropriate for the device.
Four-Pin and 6-Pin Connections
There are two different types of connectors used for
IEEE 1394 terminals and cables: a 4-pin and a 6-pin
type. Both types send the same digital audio, video,
and control signals, but the 6-pin connectors can
also supply low-voltage electrical power to connected
devices. This TV uses only 4-pin type connectors.
electrical power from another 6-pin device, there are
several ways to provide electrical power to the device:
• Connect the camcorder directly to the household AC.
• Use the camcorder’s battery for power.
• Connect the camcorder directly to another 6-pin
device in the network that can provide power.

There are two connection methods for IEEE 1394 devices. Use the method that fits your network of audio/video products.
Direct Device-To-Device Method
The IEEE 1394 interface allows you to chain devices,
unlike audio and video connections that require you to
connect each individual device directly to the TV. For
example, you can connect your D-VHS to your 1394
A/V disc and then connect the 1394 A/V disc to the
TV. The resulting IEEE 1394 chain allows you to add
more devices to the chain. You will see an icon for each
device in the TV’s Input Selection menu and can also
send information from any IEEE 1394 device to other
compatible devices.

%JHJUBM
7$3
57
Hub Connection Method
The IEEE 1394 standard allows you to use 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.
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, use a 6-pin-to-4-pin adapter or adapter
cable. These cables are available from electronics and
computer stores.

as a camcorder), and the device is designed to receive

Tips for Connecting IEEE 1394 Devices
IEEE 1394 Camcorders
•
•
Control Functions. Connect the camcorder to an
IEEE 1394 jack on the rear of the TV and test using
the TV’s remote control to operate the camcorder. If your model does not operate properly, use the
camcorder’s control buttons instead.
•
MPEG Camcorders. If you are unable to play back
over the IEEE 1394 interface, use the analog audio/
video connections described in chapter 3, “TV Connections.”
•
•
•
•
•
Do not loop the last
%JHJUBM
device in the chain back
%7%
to the TV. When the
%JHJUBM
device chain is looped,
7$3
the TV may not be able
57
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 is 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 speeds can interfere
with IEEE 1394 signals from faster devices. When
setting 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.
Use IEEE 1394 cables 15 feet or less in length
between devices.
This TV is an IEEE 1394a device. It can be used
with an IEEE 1394b system when an IEEE-1394ato-1394b convertor is used. IEEE 1394b systems
are capable of greater distances and multi-room
applications.
The TV can recognize a maximum of seven IEEE
1394 devices at any one time.

TV Signals and 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 is no perfect solution for
displaying a squarish, narrower image on a wide screen,
Mitsubishi offers several display formats from which
you can 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.
DVD Definitions
Anamorphic (or Enhanced for WideScreen TV)
These DVDs are recorded in a special way to properly show widescreen images on 16:9 TV sets using
the Standard format mode. This is the recommended
viewing choice.
Non-Anamorphic (or 4:3, 1:33:1, Letter Box, or Full
Screen)
These DVDs are recorded for use with traditionally
shaped, squarish TVs. They may be full screen (4:3 or
1:33:1) which crops movies to fit the narrow TV, or letter
box, which adds black top and bottom bars.
This information may be listed on the DVD case. Some
DVDs support both types of recordings.
Signal Definitions
480i Signals: Traditional interlaced signals from or
through ANT-1 and 2, INPUT 1–3, COMPONENT and
HDMI jacks.
480p Signals: Progressive-scan DVD signals on COMPONENT and HDMI jacks.
720p and 1080i Signals: High-definition signals
received through COMPONENT and HDMI jacks. These
signals are always 16:9 (widescreen).
SD 4:3: Standard-definition squarish-screen format
signals from digital channels on ANT 1 and ANT 2 and
IEEE 1394 devices.
SD 16:9: Standard-definition widescreen format signals
from digital channels on ANT 1 and ANT 2 and IEEE 1394
devices.
HD: High-definition wide-screen format signals from
digital channels on ANT 1 and ANT 2 and IEEE 1394
devices. These signals are always 16:9 (widescreen).
TV Display 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
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 480i, 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 480i, 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. Except when disto adjust the position of the
playing menus, press
picture vertically. Available for 480i, 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 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 1080i, 720p, digital SD 16:9
and digital HD signals; not available for 1080p signals.
Note: All high-definition channels send widescreen
(16:9) signals, but not all programming sent on
these channels was created for this format. The
broadcaster may stretch the image or add side
bars to fill the widescreen area.

NetCommand
About NetCommand
•
•
•
•
•
•
NetCommand setup is optional.
You can perform NetCommand setup when the TV
first recognizes a device during Auto Input Sensing
or at any convenient time afterward.
NetCommand operates by sending remote control
signals from the TV to your other devices via the IR
emitters, telling the devices to play, record, change
inputs, adjust volume, change channels, or perform
other functions. All this is accomplished with the
TV’s remote control and the slide switch left in the
TV position.
The IR “Learning” feature of NetCommand allows
the TV to determine the IR control signals for your
A/V devices.
NetCommand® can control IEEE 1394 devices by
sending control signals over a FireWire® cable.
You can choose the level of NetCommand control
for your home theater.
Important Note on NetCommand
Be sure to connect the IR emitter cable to the
TV and properly place the emitters so that
Netcommand can control your devices. See the
explanation on the following page.
Standard Setup. Perform a standard setup if
you:
Want NetCommand to control only 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
control to operate these devices.
Want the ease and flexibility of NetCommand-controlled recording, with seamless
setup of time-delayed or immediate recordings among networked devices.
Want to use TV Guide On Screen to control
your VCR or A/V disc. After performing this
setup, you can use the TV’s remote control
to operate these devices.
A/V Receiver Setup. Perform A/V receiver
setup if you want NetCommand to:
Control a surround sound A/V receiver.
Automatically change audio input selections
on an A/V receiver when you change inputs
on the TV.

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.
4. Secure the emitter ends in place using doublesided tape.
5. Place any unused ends behind the devices to
prevent stray signals from reaching the IR sensors.

NetCommand-Controlled Recording
This section describes making recordings independently of the TV Guide On Screen system. For instructions on setting up recordings using TV Guide On
Screen, see the separate TV Guide On Screen® Interactive Program Guide User’s Manual.
Before You Begin
For best results, review this list of factors that may
affect your recordings.
Recordable Inputs
You can record from the ANT 1 or ANT 2 jacks, the
INPUT 1–3 jacks, or the IEEE 1394 inputs.
Note: Signals received on the HDMI and component
inputs cannot be recorded.
Analog vs. Digital Recording Devices
•
•
Analog programs can be recorded only to analog
devices. Analog sources cannot be recorded to
digital devices. Connect your analog recording
device to the TV’s RECORD OUTPUT jacks.
Digital programs can be recorded on either digital
or analog devices. For best playback quality,
however, record digital programs on digital recording devices. Connect your digital recording devices
to the TV’s IEEE 1394 jacks.
Analog Recording Formats
If you record from a digital 16:9 channel to an analog
VCR or recording device, select a recording format
based on the type of TV you will use for playback. You
must choose a format for analog recording because
of the mismatch between the 16:9 ratio of the digital
source picture and the narrower 4:3 ratio of the analog
recorder.
Choose the analog recording format in the Record >
Setup menu. Your choices are:
•
•
Anamorphic. For anamorphic (widescreen) playback on this widescreen TV. Ensure that the TV
screen format is set to standard (see the section on
TV formats in this Owner’s Guide).
Cropped. For cropped playback on an older-style
4:3 TV. The cropped display removes the top and
bottom sections of the picture. This setting does
not affect recording from analog devices, analog
channels, or 4:3 digital channels.
Copy-Protected Material
When attempting to record copy-protected material, the
record functions of the NetCommand and IEEE 1394
systems may be prevented or stopped.
Making a Recording
You can start a recording immediately or you can

Description
This television is designed to conform to IEEE 1394 AV/C
Software standards in effect at the time of development. This 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.

WARNING
THE ACCESS PANEL IS PROVIDED WITH
AN INTERLOCK TO REDUCE THE RISK OF
EXCESSIVE ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION. DO NOT
DEFEAT ITS PURPOSE OR ATTEMPT TO SERVICE
WITHOUT REMOVING PANEL COMPLETELY.
CAUTION
BURN DANGER! HOT SURFACES INSIDE!
Touch lamp cartridge handle only. Do not touch lamp or lamp cartridge
housing. Keep lamp cartridge horizontal during removal. Do not tilt as

CAUTION: If the television is on, press POWER to turn it off. Unplug the television and
allow it to cool for at least 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 life of the lamp can vary,
based on the lamp itself, the air temperature around the TV while it is operating, the selected lamp mode, and your
viewing patterns. Warmer air or poor ventilation shorten the lamp life, as does use of the Bright lamp mode and turning
the television on and off frequently. Mitsubishi warrants the lamp for one (1) year from the date of original TV purchase
at retail.
To Order a New Lamp
To Receive a Replacement Lamp Under Warranty
Call (800) 553-7278. Please have model number, serial number, and TV purchase date available.
Important: All lamps replaced under warranty must be returned to Mitsubishi where they will be inspected for defect
verification.

•
Do not remove the lamp cartridge immediately after turning off the television. You may get burned because the
lamp is very hot. Allow the television to cool for at least one hour before replacing 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 a foreign 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.

Lamp-Cartridge Replacement
Removing the Old Lamp Cartridge
1. Turn off TV power and allow the lamp to cool for at
least one hour before proceeding.
2. After the lamp has cooled, remove the cover of the
lamp compartment, located on the back of the TV.
Refer to figures 1 and 2. Use a #2 (large) Phillips
screwdriver to loosen the screw securing the cover.
Keep the screw and cover for re-installation
3. With a large Phillips or flat-blade screwdriver, loosen
the two 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.
4. Fully open the bag supplied with the replacement
lamp and set the opened bag aside.
5. Gently grasp the handle of the lamp cartridge and
pull the old cartridge straight out. See figure 3.
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 not to let any glass particles fall out.
Installing the New Lamp Cartridge
1. 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.
2. With either your fingers or the screwdriver, gently
tighten the two shiny screws. If using a screwdriver, AVOID OVERTIGHTENING!
3. Replace the plastic cover and retaining screws.
4. WASH YOUR HANDS THOROUGHLY, AS THIS
LAMP CONTAINS MERCURY.
Disposal of the Old Lamp Cartridge
Lamp under warranty: All lamps replaced under warranty must be returned to Mitsubishi. Use the return
shipping label provided and send to Mitsubishi Digital
Electronics, America, 1001 Cherry Drive, Suite 2, Braselton, GA 30517.

TV Reset Comparison Guide
You can resolve many common TV problems using
the reset functions described in the following table. See also the troubleshooting suggestions later in this
appendix.
IMPORTANT
Before you change sound or picture settings: If
picture or sound settings seem wrong for a broadcast
channel (a channel from ANT 1, ANT 2, a cable box, or
satellite receiver), first check other channels from the
same input before changing settings. If most other
channels from the same input seem correct, there is
likely a problem with the broadcast rather than with the
TV. Use care in this case, as changes you make to fix
problems on individual channels also affect all other
channels on the same input.

AV menu, even though I have physically
connected the TV to the A/V receiver and
learned IR codes for the receiver inputs.
Wrong input or no input was assigned in the AV Receiver Learn
screen. All audio should go to the A/V receiver as audio output
from the TV unless the device’s audio is connected directly to
the A/V receiver. See chapter 6, “NetCommand,” and perform
the procedure to select the correct A/V receiver input.
5.
There is no sound from the A/V receiver
for my DVD player or other surround sound
device even though I learned the IR code for
the A/V receiver’s DVD input or other input.
NetCommand A/V receiver setup for the DVD player or digital
surround sound device or other device is not switching properly. See chapter 6, “NetCommand,” and perform A/V receiver
setup for a digital surround sound device.
6.
I’ve selected my DVD player or other surround sound device in combination with the
TV speakers but hear no sound from the TV
speakers.
If you have only an audio connection from the device to the A/V
receiver, a physical audio connection from the device to the TV is
also required.
• Connect the left and right audio output from the device to the
appropriate TV audio input. Now you can hear audio from the
device through either the TV speakers or the A/V receiver.
• To switch audio sources, press AUDIO, press
to show the
Speakers option, then press to select AV Receiver or TV.
7.
I “learned” the RECORD key for my VCR/DVR Check that the VCR or DVR is receiving a signal directly from
but when I pressed the RECORD key, the
your cable box or satellite receiver.
VCR/DVR did not record anything.

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.
1. TO OBTAIN WARRANTY SERVICE:
a. Contact your nearest authorized MITSUBISHI service center, whose name and address can be obtained from your

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 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 vent 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

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 limited warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to
state.
7. In the event of any dispute under this limited warranty, jurisdiction and venue for resolving that dispute will be in
the state where the television was purchased and the laws of such state will govern.

SYSTEM RESET
If the TV does not respond to the remote control,
front panel controls, or will not power on/off, press
the SYSTEM RESET button on the front panel.
The green LED will flash quickly for about one
minute. When the green LED stops flashing, you
may turn on the TV. Settings changes you made
most recently, before using SYSTEM RESET, may be lost.
