How to set up your new HITACHI Projection Television
ANTENNA
Unless your TV is connected to a cable TV system or to a centralized antenna system, a good outdoor TV antenna
is recommended for best performance. However, if you are located in an exceptionally good signal area that is free
from interference and multiple image ghosts, an indoor antenna may be sufficient.
First time use
LOCATION
Select an area where sunlight or bright indoor illumination will not fall directly on the picture screen. Also, be sure
that the location selected allows a free flow of air to and from the perforated back cover of the set. To avoid
cabinet warping, cabinet color changes, and increased chance of set failure, do not place the TV where
temperatures can become excessively hot, for example, in direct sunlight or near a heating appliance, etc.
VIEWING
The major benefit of the HITACHI Projection Television
is its large viewing screen. To see this large screen at its
best, test various locations in the room to find the
optimum spot for viewing.
The best picture is seen by sitting directly in front of the
TV and about 10 to 18 feet from the screen. Picture
brightness decreases as the viewer moves to the left
and right of the receiver.
BEST
VERTICAL VIEWING
ANGLE
20
3'
During daylight hours, reflections from outside light may
appear on the screen. If so, drapes or screens can be
used to reduce the reflection or the TV can be located in
a different section of the room.
If the TV’s audio output will be connected to a Hi-Fi
system’s external speakers, the best audio performance
will be obtained by placing the speakers equidistant
from each side of the receiver cabinet and as close as
possible to the height of the picture screen center. For
best stereo separation, place the external speakers at
least four feet from the side of the TV, place the
surround speakers to the side or behind the viewing
area. Differences in room sizes and acoustical
environments will require some experimentation with
speaker placement for best performance.

Auto Digital Convergence Adjustment
Please turn ON your television for at least 20 minutes
before using this feature.
Your HITACHI Projection TV has three color projection
tubes: one for red, one for green, one for blue. When
mixed together in the proper proportion, the output of
these three color tubes can produce any color. To
produce these colors, however, the beams must be
precisely aligned over each other so that the colors can
be mixed. The process of aligning these picture beams
is called “convergence”.
On-Screen Display
The MAGIC FOCUS button on control panel will not
work when adjustment mode is set to MANUAL (see
page 55 or 56).
MAGIC
FOCUS
MAGIC FOCUS
>>>>>
<<<<<
Over a period of time, the picture tubes can drift out of
alignment due to normal bumps and vibrations or
moving the TV. If you move your TV, or if, after a time,
you notice color rings or halos around objects in the
picture, you may want to converge (align) the colors.
Properly converged, the lines appear white, which is
actually a combination of the outputs of the three color
tubes. The output of the green tube is stationary. The
outputs of the red and blue tubes can be adjusted.
When properly aligned, the outputs of all three tubes
should be directly over each other to produce the white
lines.
To simplify convergence, HITACHI incorporates a function called MAGIC FOCUS located on the front control
panel, which allows the TV to self-adjust. Press this MAGIC FOCUS button and the convergence self adjustment
will start and this process will take approximately 20 seconds. If this button is pressed during this process, no
change in picture quality will occur. After this 20 second self-adjust period, picture quality will be optimum (do not
move the TV during self-adjust).
You may also select MAGIC FOCUS TUNE UP from the Setup Menu.
53
Setup
NOTE: 1. Only a momentary press of the MAGIC
FOCUS button is necessary to start AUTO
DIGITAL CONVERGENCE. At any time
during this convergence correction
process, you may press the MAGIC
FOCUS button to exit the MAGIC FOCUS
mode. However, the convergence
correction process needs to be completed
to SAVE the new corrected convergence
data.

Equipment Care and Troubleshooting
DO
DO NOT
Dust the screen and cabinet with a soft cloth.
Do not clean your screen or cabinet with strong
cleaners, polishes or a chemically treated cloth.
Clean the screen with a soft cloth moistened in warm
water and dry with a soft cloth. A mild soap may be
used if the screen is extremely dirty.
Place your Television away from extreme heat,
humidity, and extremely dusty places.
Remove the plug from the wall outlet if your Television
will not be used for a long period of time, for instances,
when you go on vacation.
Do not place rubber or vinyl products or cellophane
tape on your Television.
Do not touch the screen too often.
Do not subject the remote control to shocks such as
dropping it on the floor, etc. Physical damage to the
precision parts may result.
Avoid placing the remote control or the Simple Remote
Control in a high humidity place or getting it wet. Do
not leave it on or near a heater. Excessive heat or
moisture may cause the unit to cease operation.
When the batteries run down, remote control operation
will become erratic or possibly stop altogether. Replace
the old batteries with two new “AA” size batteries as
soon as possible to preserve the remote control
precodes that were set for the devices. Pressing a
remote control button with a “DEAD” battery might
erase all precodes in memory. Do not use an old
battery with a new battery.
Exposure of the viewing screen to prolonged direct
sunlight or heat may cause the screen to permanently
warp, resulting in a distorted picture..
TROUBLESHOOTING

Reception Problems
IGNITION NOISE:
Black spots or horizontal streaks may appear, picture may flutter or drift.
Usually caused by interference from automobile ignition systems, neon lamps,
electrical drills, and other electrical appliances.
GHOSTS:
Ghosts are caused by the television signal following two paths. One is the
direct path and the other is reflected from tall buildings, hills or some other
objects. Changing the direction or position of the antenna may improve
reception. Ghosting may also be caused by defects in the antenna system such
as unshielded leads or connecting several sets to the same antenna without
using multiple antenna couplers.
SNOW:
If your receiver is located in the fringe area of a television station where the
signal is weak, your picture may be marred by the appearance of small dots.
When the signal is extremely weak, it may be necessary to install a special
antenna to improve the picture.
RADIO FREQUENCY INTERFERENCE:
The interference produces moving ripples or diagonal streaks, and in some
cases, causes loss of contrast in the picture.
Useful Information
BLOCK NOISE (DIGITAL INPUT):
Fuzzy blocks may appear in some area or the whole area of the screen. This is
usually caused by interference from automobile ignition systems, neon lamps,
electrical drills, ghosting of the image and weak signals.
BLACK SCREEN:
When using an antenna, weak signals will display a black screen. It may be
necessary to upgrade your antenna.
NOTE: The TV set can generate sound distortion in external devices such as a radio. Please separate radio
equipment from the TV set to a considerable distance.

Lip Sync. Notice
The on-screen motion of an actor's lips or other moving object may not be in sync with the associated audio
heard from the TV's speakers. This is caused by timing differences in the broadcast signal or DVD content
and is not caused by a defect in the television.
