IR emitter cables are available for purchase from Mitsubishi. Visit www.mitsuparts.com or call 800-553-7278 and request one of the following: -- 242D483020 (two-ended cable) -- 299P254020 (four-ended cable). 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 (infrared) 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 left in TV mode. You may wish to use NetCommand IR control to supplement control of CEC-enabled devices. 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. 55 sensor IRIRsensor 56 On top of a single tall device 5.

Position the emitter end with the emitter bulb facing the device’s remote control sensor. The bulb emits infrared light in a cone-shaped pattern. Place the bulb far enough from the sensor to allow the cone pattern to reach the sensor. In some cases, the emitter works better facing downward from the top of the device. Experiment to find what works best. 5. Secure the emitter ends in place using double6. sided tape. Place any unused ends behind the devices to prevent stray signals from reaching the IR sensors. IMPORTANT Position IR emitters so that each device’s sensor “sees” the signal from only one emitter. Otherwise, a device receiving signals from multiple sources (remote controls, IR emitters) may not respond at all. sensor IRIRsensor On top of a single tall device In front, shared by two average-sized devices IR sensor IR sensor IR sensor Place IR emitters so the signal can be “seen” by the IR sensor on each device.

You may find that CEC functions for a specific device are limited. To use HDMI Control, you must enable it in both the TV and the device. • In the TV. Enable HDMI control from the New Device Found screen or from the Inputs > HDMI Control menu. • In the Device.

Symptom Remarks The TV takes several seconds to respond to channel changes. • • • • 2. You cannot access a channel. • • • • • • 3. When ChannelView list is displayed, information appears incomplete • • • • It is normal for digital channels to take longer to tune in. Press ENTER after entering a channel number to avoid delays. Use a 4-digit number for an over-the-air digital channel. Use a 6-digit number for digital cable channels if your cable service is able to recognize 6-digit channel numbers. Use number keys instead of CHANNEL Up/Down. Be sure the channel you want to view is in memory. Check that the TV is switched to the correct device or antenna for that channel by pressing the ACTIVITY key. Make sure the Lock > Parent menu lock is set to Off. If you cannot tune to a virtual digital channel even though the TV has already memorized digital channels, tune to the physical channel number used by the broadcaster. The virtual channel will then be automatically added to memory. You may be trying to tune to an analog channel that is no longer broadcasting. Press INFO to update the display for the highlighted channel. Program information is displayed only for the currently tuned channel. Available information is sent from the broadcaster or cable provider. No other data is available. Make sure the TV clock is set correctly. TV Power On/Off 1. Symptom Remarks TV takes an excessively long time to power on. • • When powered on, the TV needs time to boot up, just as does a computer. For faster power-up, change the Energy setting to Fast Power On (Initial > Energy menu). With this setting the TV’s power usage when off exceeds ENERGY STAR® recommended levels for a powered-down device. 2. You cannot program the TV to turn on automatically (Timer function) • • The TV may be locked. The clock may not be set. 3. TV turned itself off and the light on the front panel started to blink. • Momentary power fluctuation caused the TV to turn off to prevent damage. Wait for the green light to stop flashing and turn the TV on again. If the TV does not stay on, press the POWER button on the control panel for at least eight seconds to perform System Reset. If this happens frequently, obtain an AC line power conditioner/surge protector. An unusual digital signal may have been received, triggering a protection circuit. Wait for the light to stop flashing and turn TV on. • • 4. TV will not power off. Press the POWER button on the control panel for ten seconds to perform System Reset. Appendices 85 Appendix E: Troubleshooting, continued Picture Symptom Remarks 1. Picture does not look like a high-definition picture. Not all signals are high-definition signals. To receive high-definition programming from your cable or satellite provider, you must subscribe to the provider’s high-definition service. Some overthe-air broadcasts are in high-definition and can be received with a high-quality antenna suited to your location. 2. TV has sound but no picture. • • 3. Picture has become dimmer. Adjust picture brightness and contrast to maximum levels. 4. There is a large black or gray rectangle on the screen. The TV’s analog closed captioning has been set to “text” mode in the Captions menu. Turn off because there is no text information being broadcast. 5. You cannot view a picture when playing a VHS tape. Check your VCR’s owner’s guide for further troubleshooting. 6. VCR or DVD player’s on-screen menus jitter up and down. Stop playback. Possible cause: Many VCRs and DVD players provide on-screen menus at only half-resolution that may appear to jitter up and down. 7. When viewing a stopped VCR, white lines are rolling on the screen. • • • 8. A color program appears as a black and white image, or the colors are dim, or the screen is black. The PerfectColor color balance has been incorrectly set. Reset the PerfectColor balance. 9. Picture from an HDMI input is noisy (poor quality). Upgrade a Category 1 (unmarked) HDMI cable to a Category 2 high-speed HDMI cable. 10. The image from a computer appears distorted when viewed on the TV. • • Check that all video inputs are plugged in firmly. Press and hold the POWER button on the control panel for ten seconds to perform System Reset. Turn off video mute for the VCR. Begin playing the tape. Change the VCR input from Line 1 to the VCR antenna input. Normal TV operation. The TV does not correct distortion in the picture from a computer because the correction process may cut off the edges of the image. The aspect ratio may be wrong for the image. Press MORE and then 0 (FORMAT) to change. Sound 1. Symptom Remarks There is no sound even when the volume is turned up. • • • • • Check if the MUTE key is on. The TV’s “Listen to:” setting may be set to SAP (analog program from the ANT input) but no SAP is being broadcast. Check that the Speakers option is set to TV to hear sound from the TV speakers. Possibly sound is being sent to one of the audio outputs for an A/V receiver or headphones. If using an A/V receiver, check that the Speakers option is set to AV Receiver to hear sound from the A/V receiver speakers. Press and hold the POWER button on the control panel for 10 seconds to perform System Reset. 86 Appendices Appendix E: Troubleshooting, continued Sound Symptom Remarks 2. The sound does not match the screen picture. The TV’s “Listen to:” setting may be set to SAP (analog program from the ANT input). 3. The sound from my A/V receiver does not match the screen picture (I should hear the correct audio from my A/V receiver). • • Check that DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT and/or AVR AUDIO OUTPUT on TV’s main panel is connected to the A/V receiver. Without this connection, devices connected only to the TV (and not the A/V receiver) can be heard only from the TV speakers. Note that this includes the ANT input, a device (such as a camcorder) connected to the convenience panel, and any other device sending audio to the TV only. If using a NetCommand-controlled A/V receiver, NetCommand may be selecting the wrong A/V receiver audio input. Check the A/V receiver’s NetCommand setup in the Inputs > AVR menu. 4. Cannot select an audio-only device; it does not appear in the Activity menu. Plug an unused video plug into the Y/VIDEO jack to activate Auto Input Sensing and make the audio device selectable in the Activity menu. 5. Sound is coming from the TV speakers instead of the A/V receiver. Disconnect headphones. Connect the TV’s AUDIO OUT to the A/V receiver and select AV Receiver from the New Device Found screen. NetCommand IR Control (NetCommand-equipped models only) Symptom Remarks 1. • Cannot see the menu from the A/V Receiver. • • 2. NetCommand unable to learn specific device keys. • • • • • A/V Receiver Set Up for Audio-Only Switching The A/V Receiver is not connected to any video input of the TV. To check the A/V Receiver menu, temporarily plug into an unused input of the TV, such as Input 3. Exit the New Device Found screen and select Input 3 from the Activity menu. Press MENU on the A/V receiver’s remote control. A/V Receiver Set Up for Audio and Video Switching over HDMI Use the MENU key on the A/V receiver’s remote control. A/V Receiver with HDMI Control Switch the remote control to AUDIO mode. Press the MORE key and then 1 (Menu). A/V Device does not use IR format for remote control signal. ITT and RF formats cannot be learned. Room lighting may affect the signal. Have the remotes very close (6 inches or less) to the TV during Learning. If learning a Mitsubishi remote control, make sure mode is not set to TV. Some, but not all, device key functions can be learned by NetCommand. For example, POWER and PLAY may be learned, but other functions may not. The signal from the remote control may not be strong enough. Insert fresh batteries and try Learning again.

See “Automatic Switching (Audio or Audio/Video),” page 63, and perform A/V receiver setup for a digital surround sound device. 5. There is no sound or picture from the A/V receiver for my DVD player or other device connected to the A/V receiver; the A/V receiver should be sending video to the TV over an HDMI cable. (A/V Receiver Set Up for Audio and Video Switching over HDMI) The NetCommand A/V receiver setup is not switching audio and video inputs properly because you did not “learn” the A/V receiver’s IR codes for the device inputs. See “Case 3: Automatic Audio and Video Switching via HDMI,” page 65. 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. • • 7.

Preamble The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation’s software and to any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too. When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things. To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it. For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights. We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software. Also, for each author’s protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors’ reputations. Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone’s free use or not licensed at all. The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow. GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The “Program”, below, refers to any such program or work, and a “work based on the Program” means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term “modification”.) Each licensee is addressed as “you”. Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program does. 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program’s source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License along with the Program. You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee. 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions: a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any change. b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License. c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run, you must cause it, when started running for such interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on the Program is not required to print an announcement.) These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it. Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Program. In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License. 3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following: Trademark and License Information 91 GNU General Public License, continued a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or, b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or, c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in object code or executable form with such an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.) The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source code distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies the executable. If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not compelled to copy the source along with the object code. 4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance. 5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the Program or works based on it. 6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients’ exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to this License. 7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from distribution of the Program. If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances. It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free software distribution system, which is implemented by public license practices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to the author/ donor to decide if he or she is willing to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot impose that choice. This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License. 8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the Program under this License may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License. 9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns. Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and “any later version”, you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that version or of any later version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation. 10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally. NO WARRANTY 11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION. 12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. 92 Warranty Mitsubishi LCD Flat Panel HDTV Limited Warranty MITSUBISHI DIGITAL ELECTRONICS AMERICA, INC. (“MDEA”) warrants to the original purchaser of this LCD Flat Panel HDTV that if purchased from an authorized MITSUBISHI Audio/Video Dealer, should it prove defective by reason of improper workmanship and/or material: a. Parts. All parts (except any software incorporated into this HDTV) are warranted for a period of one 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 HDTV (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. The warranty contained in this section shall continue for a period of one year, from the date of the original purchase from the authorized dealer. 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 Consumer 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 compliance with the terms of the Software License Agreement applicable to this HDTV, 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 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 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. BEFORE REQUESTING SERVICE, please review the TV owner’s guide to insure proper installation and correct customer control adjustment. If the problem persists, please arrange for warranty service. 1.

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 you home. Actual service labor will be provided without charge. c. Proof of purchase from an authorized MITSUBISHI dealer is required when requesting warranty service. Present your sales receipt or other document which establishes proof and date of purchase. THE RETURN OF THE OWNER REGISTRATION CARD IS NOT A CONDITION OF WARRANTY COVERAGE. However, please return the Owner Registration Card so that we can contact you should a question of safety arise which could affect you. 2. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER: a. Up to .01% pixel outages (small dot picture elements that are dark or incorrectly illuminated). b. Cosmetic damage or 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 (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 damage caused by acts of God or other factors beyond the reasonable control of MDEA, such as power surge damage caused by electrical system or damages caused by use of third party mounting brackets or stands. This limited warranty also excludes service calls where no defect in the product covered under this warranty is found, service calls related to unsatisfactory audio or visual reception or signal unless caused by a defect in the product that is covered under this limited warranty, all costs, expenses or any other damages arising from product installation, removal from or re-installation into custom installations or on Warranty 93 wall mountings, 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 consult the operating instructions contained in the Owner’s Guide 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. In no event shall Mitsubishi have any liability, including with out limitation, for general, consequential, incidental, or special damages for loss, destruction, damage or corruption of recorded data, media or software resulting from use of this television, or cost of recovery of lost data, media or software therefore.
