Important Information About Your TV 7

Cleaning Recommendations

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, nonabrasive cloth.

Screen

• Follow the instructions for the top and sides, wiping 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 through the gap between the screen and 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 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.

TV Software

Unauthorized Software

Do not attempt to update the software of this TV with software or cards that are 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.

IMPORTANT

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.

Important Safeguards, continued

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.

CableCARD™ Technology

(models WD-57731 and WD-65731)

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. When you move to a new cable provider’s area, return the CableCARD to the original cable provider and get a new card from your new provider.

Please note that CableCARD is a relatively 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, meaning your cable provider can send updates to the TV, but the TV cannot send signals back. As a result, certain advanced and interactive digital cable services, such as requests for video-on-demand and pay-per-view programs, a cable operator’s enhanced program guide, and data-enhanced television services may require use of a set-top box instead. For more information, call your local cable operator.

Digital cable channels authorized by the CableCARD are available on the Firewire® IEEE 1394 network and can be shared by other products on the network. You may be unable to record or copy some digital programs, however, because of copy restrictions set by the content or copyright owners.

Using a CableCARD™

Power on the TV and insert the CableCARD into the

CableCARD slot with the top of the card oriented as indicated by CARD TOP . When the initial screen displays, write down the information that appears and have it ready when calling your cable provider.

In order to start cable service for this device, please contact your cable provider

ANT 1/MAIN.

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.

ANT 1/MAIN and CableCARD™ (models WD-57731 and

WD-65731)

Use ANT 1/MAIN to receive 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 continue to receive over-the-air or non-scrambled cable signals when ANT 1 is used for CableCARD™ service.

2. CableCARD™ Slot

(models WD-57731 and WD-65731)

The CableCARD access card from your cable TV service provider is inserted into this slot. When inserting, ensure that the top of the card faces in the direction indicated by

CARD TOP .

If your cable company is not currently offering CableCARD access cards, use the cable box provided and authorized by your local cable company to view scrambled channels.

3. INPUT 1 and 2 Inputs

(Audio and Video)

INPUT 1 and 2 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. INPUT 3 is a third set of jacks located on or near the front of the TV for convenience. Please note that if S-VIDEO and VIDEO are both available, you must choose to connect only one.

Chapter 1. Television Overview 19

TV Back Panel, continued

4. COMPONENT 1 and 2 Inputs

(Audio and Video)

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. Please see Appendix B for signal compatibility.

5. HDMI™ 1 and 2

Do not connect a computer to either HDMI jack.

The HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) supports uncompressed standard and high-definition digital video formats and PCM digital audio format. For PC video, use the PC-DVI input instead.

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, 1080i, and 1080p video formats.

These inputs can also accept 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 HDMI/DVI AUDIO inputs on the TV to receive left and right stereo audio from your DVI device.

These inputs are HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Copy Protection) compliant.

8. PC-DVI AUDIO

Use the PC-DVI AUDIO jacks in conjunction with the

PC-DVI video input from a personal computer. These jacks allow you to send left and right analog audio from your computer to the TV.

9. DTVLINK™/IEEE 1394

These jacks allow the TV to connect to external IEEE 1394 digital products by means of a single cable. See chapter

7, “Using IEEE 1394 Devices” for detailed information regarding IEEE 1394 connections and recording.

10. MONITOR OUT

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. The signals from these jacks are from the program currently being viewed on the

TV screen. To make recordings from this output, the

TV must be in normal full-screen mode rather than in

mode.

• 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.

These inputs are certified for proper interoperability with other products certified by Simplay™.

6. HDMI/DVI AUDIO

Use these analog audio inputs when connecting DVI video devices to the TV’s HDMI jacks. Unlike HDMI, DVI does not carry audio information on the same cable.

For analog audio from a personal computer, use the PC-

DVI AUDIO jacks instead.

11. AUDIO OUT LEFT/RIGHT

AUDIO OUT LEFT/RIGHT jacks 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, FireWire® (DTVLink/IEEE 1394) devices 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.

7. PC-DVI

Do not connect a TV video source to the PC-DVI input.

PC-DVI is a DVI-I input compatible with both DVI-A

(analog) and DVI-D (digital) inputs. Connect your personal computer’s HDMI, DVI, or VGA video output to this jack.

An adapter or converter cable may be required. Please see Appendix B for signal compatibility. To hear audio from the computer, connect analog audio cables from the computer to the PC-DVI AUDIO jacks.

12. DIGITAL AUDIO OUT

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.

If the device is powered off when connected, detection will occur when the device is next powered on.

1. Connect your devices to the TV.

The TV and the devices can be either on or off when connecting. If the TV is powered off, the detection process will occur the next time you turn on the TV.

2. When the Auto Input Sensing screen opens (figure

2), you can accept the default name or press to select from a list of device names (e.g., cable box,

DVD, Satellite, VCR).

Choose a name that will help you when selecting inputs in the Input Selection menu.

Figure 2. The Auto Input Sensing screen appears when a device is first detected. Select a name for the connected device in this screen.

More About Auto Input Sensing

• You can change the input name at a later time using the Input Name menu.

• If you disconnect a device and then later connect a different device to the unused jack, open the Input

Name menu to update the device name.

• Antenna inputs ( ANT 1/ANT 2) and TV outputs are never detected.

• Be careful to choose different names for each input.

IEEE 1394 Connections

The screen in figure 3 appears when you make an IEEE

1394 connection, The TV can recognize up to seven IEEE

1394 devices at one time. If you connect more than one device of the same type, a unique identifier is added to the name for each one. For example, if you connect three A/V discs, you may see AV Disc, AV Disc1, AV Disc2.

IEEE 1394 Device with an Analog Connection.

Some IEEE 1394 devices have both digital and analog outputs to the TV. If you have such a device, place a check mark in the Analog Connection check box to:

• Allow a cable box with both analog and digital outputs to switch automatically between them.

• Allow you to use a TV menu to select either the analog or digital output from the device.

For instructions on switching between analog and digital outputs, see chapter 7, “Using IEEE 1394 Devices.”

Chapter 2. TV Connections 23

Before You Begin, continued

Name assigned to the device device, as later changes can only be made after returning all TV settings to their defaults.

Digital Video and Home Recording

The table below will help you decide which type of connection to use for digital video. Digital video comes to your home in a compressed state, whether received on recorded media (e.g., disc) or broadcast over the air, over cable, or via satellite. Some compressed digital video is available for recording as noted in the table.

Connection Type into the TV

HDMI or DVI

Compressed video is converted to uncompressed form by an external device such as a cable box, satellite receiver, or

DVD player before it is sent to the TV on an

HDMI or DVI cable.

IEEE 1394 (FireWire®) Connections

Your TV can receive and decode digital channels, MPEG2 compressed digital video, and Dolby Digital audio.

Effect on Home Recording

You cannot record the resultant uncompressed video sent to the TV via HDMI or DVI.

You can record compressed digital video either

• on compatible digital recorders as digital signals using IEEE 1394 connections

• converted to analog signals and recorded as standard-definition composite video from the MONITOR OUT jack

You may be unable to record some programming because of copy restrictions added by the content owners.

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.

Note:

• Only standard format is available for Split Screen.

• PC formats vary depending on the PC signal.

• For 1080p signals from an HDMI input, see “Computer Display Formats” in chapter 6, “Using the TV with a Personal Computer.”

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 analog interlaced signals from or through ANT-1 and 2, INPUT 1–3, COMPONENT

1 and 2, HDMI 1 and 2.

480p Signals: Progressive-scan DVD signals on COM-

PONENT inputs and HDMI 1 and 2 .

720p and 1080i Signals: High-definition signals received through COMPONENT inputs 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).

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 displaying menus or Split Screen, press to adjust the position of the 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.

Note: All high-definition channels send widescreen (16:9) signals, but not all programming sent on these channels was created for this format. As a result, the broadcaster must convert such programming for broadcast, and may stretch the image or add side bars to fill the widescreen area.

Chapter 6. Using the TV with a Personal Computer 77

Adjusting Image Resolution

Your Mitsubishi TV can display resolutions from standard

VGA (640 x 480) through 1920 x 1080 signals at a refresh rate of 60 Hz. Note that 1280 x 1024 and 1920 x 1080 signals are supported only for digital computer signals, and 1920 x 1080 at 24, 30, and 60 Hz. See Appendix B in this book for more on compatible screen resolutions.

When connecting a computer providing digital video, in most cases the computer will select the best resolution match to display on the TV. You can override this setting if you wish. For a computer providing analog video, you may need to set the resolution manually. The instructions below are for setting the resolution on most personal computers.

1. In the PC’s Start menu, select Settings.

2. Select Control Panel.

3. Select Display.

4. Choose the Settings tab.

5. Change the resolution to the highest resolution with the aspect ratio best suited for the image. See the table on the next page showing possible PC formats.

Depending on your computer’s operating system, adjust the resolution with either:

• the Screen area slider.

• the Screen Resolution slider

6. To change the refresh rate, click on the Advanced button.

7. On the Monitor tab, select a setting from the Screen refresh rate drop-down list. The resolution of 1920 x

1080 is supported at 24, 30, and 60 Hz; other resolutions are supported at 60 Hz.

You may need to restart the computer for this change to take effect.

NOTE: Whenever the TV is powered on, the lamp is in use, even if the TV screen appears dark. As a reminder that the TV is powered on and that time is being added to the lamp’s elapsed hours, set the computer’s screen saver to a pattern that will display after several minutes of inactivity.

80 Chapter 7. Using IEEE 1394 Devices

Overview

Compatible IEEE 1394 Devices

Compatible A/V devices include some, but not all, cable boxes, D-VHS VCRs, A/V discs, 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

The TV can decode MPEG2 video as provided by cable boxes and some camcorders. Many camcorders provide

DV video, which the TV cannot decode. Connect a DV 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. 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 connections.

The TV may not be able to pass incompatible digital audio signals on the coaxial digital audio output. These signals may pass to other devices, however, on the IEEE 1394 cable.

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. 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.

4-pin connector 6-pin connector 6-pin-to-4-pin adapter

If you wish to connect a 6-pin device to the TV (such as a camcorder), and the device is designed to receive 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.

Connection Methods

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.

��

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.

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 lowvoltage electrical power to connected devices. This TV uses only 4-pin type connectors.

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.

that has sub-units, a pop-up menu will appear to allow you to select the sub-unit you wish to use.

Tips for Connecting IEEE 1394 Devices

• 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 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-1394a-to-1394b convertor is used. 1394b systems are capable of greater distances and multi-room applications.

• The TV can recognize a maximum of seven IEEE 1394 devices at one time.

IEEE 1394 Devices and the Input Selection

Menu

Select an IEEE 1394 device to watch from the Input Selection menu just as you would any other device. See figure

3, Input Selection menu.

When you connect an IEEE 1394 device to the TV network and power it on, the new device is automatically detected.

Some non-audio/video or incompatible IEEE 1394 devices, such as personal computers (PCs), may not be detected by the TV and do not appear in the Input Selection menu. Such devices can, however, coexist and are still available to other devices on the IEEE 1394 network that are compatible with these non-audio/video devices.

Some devices may be a combination of two or more types of devices, such as 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 Input Selection menu

IEEE 1394 Amplifiers

For some IEEE 1394 MPEG2 amplifiers, you can use the

TV to control switching between the TV speakers and speakers connected to the amplifier.

1. Press INPUT to open the Input Selection menu. The screen will show an icon for a connected IEEE 1394 amplifier. See the Input Selection menu, figure 3.

2. Press AUDIO to move the highlight to the audio section.

3. Press to select either the TV speakers or the IEEE

1394 amplifier.

4. Press ENTER to select and hear the new audio source.

• 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.

HDMI

The HDMI input is compliant with EIA-861B standards for standard, extended, and high-definition video; digital audio, and HDCP copy protection. The HDMI inputs on this TV are not intended for use with personal computers or devices outputting video signals with computer resolutions.

Appendix C: 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. Unplug the television and allow it to cool for at least one hour before attempting to replace the lamp cartridge.

Lamp Life

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, and your viewing patterns. Warmer air or poor ventilation shorten the lamp life, as does turning the television on and off frequently. Mitsubishi warrants the lamp for one (1) year from the date of original purchase at retail. It is likely that the lamp will last much longer than this.

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.

Visit our website at www.mitsuparts.com or call (800) 553-7278. Order the new lamp part number shown below.

WARNING

• 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.

TV Reset Functions

You can resolve many common TV problems using the reset functions described in the following table. See also the additional 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.
