3. Digital Audio Output
This output will automatically send Dolby® Digital audio
from digital channels, IEEE 1394 devices and HDMI TM
(not DVI) signals to a digital Audio/Video receiver.
Connect this output to the A/V receiver's coaxial digital
audio input. This output will automatically turn off when
viewing an analog channel or device. Use Monitor
Ouput Audio 2 to send analog signals to your A/V
receiver.
Some digital cable channels send MPEG-1 digital audio
instead of Dolby Digital, however, not all A/V receivers
can decode MPEG-1 digital audio. This can cause the
A/V receivers to produce a loud noise that can damage
speakers. For this reason, the TV will automatically
turn off the digital audio output when tuned to a
channel or device that has MPEG-1 digital audio and
send it to the A/V receiver as analog left and right audio
from Monitor Output. You can enable the digital output
to include MPEG-1 digital audio if your A/V receiver
is capable of decoding it. See Edit NetCommand for
details.
4. CableCARD
TM
Slot
The CableCARD access card provided by your cable TV
service provider is inserted into this slot. CableCARD
10
Back Panel, continued
is a nationwide standard system that allows your local
cable TV provider to supply you with an access card
customized to your account. This card allows the
TV to receive, decode and unscramble the premium
digital channels included in your cable TV subscription
without the use of a cable box. It also allows your
cable provider to automatically update and change your
subscription. See pages 15, 25, and 44 for additional
CableCARD information and activation instructions.
If your cable company is not currently offering
CableCARD, you will need to use an external cable box.
5. HDMF M or DVI Devices
The HDMI TM interface supports uncompressed
standard, enhanced and high definition digital video
formats. This interface also supports existing digital
multi-channel audio formats. The HDMI input supports
both video and audio using one single cable. Use this
input to connect to EIA/CEA-861 compliant devices
such as a high definition receiver or DVD player. This
input supports the 480i, 480p and 1080i video formats.
It is not intended for use with personal computers
or devices outputting video signals with computer
resolutions.
This input can also be used as a DVI connection
with separate analog audio inputs (see DVI Analog
Audio, below). An optional HDMI-to-DVI adaptor will
be necessary to make this connection and can be
purchased from your local electronics retailer. When
using the optional HDMI-to-DVI adapter, the DVI analog
audio inputs on your TV allow you to receive left and
right audio from your DVI device.
This input is HDCP (High-Bandwidth
Protection) compliant.
Digital Copy
8. IR Output-NetCommand
®
Two jacks are provided for connecting IR emitters. IR
Emitters connected to these jacks are used by the
TV's NetCommand system to control external analog
devices such as VCRs, DVDs, cable boxes, satellite
and audio receivers.
9. Monitor
Output
(Audio/Video
1, Audio 2)
The Monitor Output sends the TV audio and video
signals from the antennas or Inputs 1-3 to an A/V
Receiver or other analog A/V equipment such as a
VCR. Digital channels and IEEE 1394 signals will be
down converted to analog signals compatible with
traditional analog VCRs. There will be no video signals
from digital channels or IEEE 1394 signals that have
copy restrictions. There will be no video signals from
Monitor Outputs when viewing the Component 1 & 2
inputs or the HDMI input
Monitor Output Audio/Video 1 should be connected to
a VCR for recording. Monitor Output Audio 2 should
be connected to your A/V Receiver for home theater
surround sound.
10. Inputs 1-2
These inputs can be used for the connection of a VCR,
Super VHS (S-VHS) VCR, DVD player, standard satellite
receiver or other A/V device to the TV. Please note
that if you connect to the S-VIDEO terminal, the VIDEO
terminal is deactivated. The VIDEO terminal is available
when there is no S-Video connection.
11. SERVICE
PORT
This input is for use by Authorized Mitsubishi Servicers
only.
6. DVI Analog Audio
Unlike HDMI, DVI does not carry audio information on
the same cable. Use these analog stereo audio inputs
when using the HDMI input with a device that outputs
DVl instead of HDMI.
7. Component Inputs 1-2
YPbPr(480i/480p/1080i)
These inputs can be used for the connection of devices
with component video outputs, such as a DVD player,
external HDTV receiver or compatible video game
system. Please see Appendix B for signal compatibility.

IMPORTAN
Warning:

NOTES
Do not leave stationary PIP/POP, or letterbox images on the screen
for extended periods of time. Mix the types of pictures shown.
Uneven picture tube aging is NOT covered by your warranty.
The normal use of a TV should include a mixture of TV picture types. The most frequently used picture types
should fill the screen with constantly moving images rather than stationary images or patterns. Displaying the same
stationary patterns over extended periods of time or displaying the same stationary pattern frequently can leave
subtle but permanent ghost images. To avoid this, mix your viewing patterns. Reducing the initial contrast level can
help slow the aging process. Do not show the same stationary image for more than 15% of your total TV viewing in
any given week. Display constantly moving and changing images that fill the screen whenever possible.
This projection TV uses picture tubes to project the image to the screen. All picture tubes age with use. As they age,
their light output is gradually reduced. Normal TV pictures fill the screen with constantly changing images. Under
these conditions, picture tubes age at an even rate across the entire screen. This maintains a TV picture that is
evenly bright over the whole screen. Stationary images or images that only partially fill the screen (leaving black
or colored bars to fill the screen), when used over extended periods of time or when viewed repeatedly, can cause
uneven aging of the phosphors and leave subtle ghosts from the stationary images in the picture.
Still or stationary images may be received from broadcasters, cable channels, satellite channels, DVD discs, video
tapes, laser discs, on-line services, web/Internet searching devices, video games, and digital TV tuner/converter
boxes.
Examples
of these types of images can be, but are not limited to the following:
_q. Letterbox top/bottom
black bars:
shown at the top and bottom of the TV screen when you watch a widescreen
(16:9) movie on a standard (4:3) TV.
_q. Side bar images:
solid bars shown on each side of an image when watching a standard (4:3) program on a widescreen
(16:9) TV.
_. News and stock-market report bars:
ticker running at the bottom of the TV screen.
_. Shopping channel Iogos & pricing displays:
bright graphics that are shown constantly or repeatedly in the same location.
_. Video game patterns and scoreboards
Bright station Iogos:
moving or low-contrast graphics are less likely to cause uneven aging of the picture tubes.
_q. Online (Internet) websites:
or any other stationary or repetitive computer
programs.

External Devices & NetCommand ® Setup
NetCommand is able to control many current audio and video devices by sending remote control signals
TV to each device through IR emitters. Additionally, it is able to learn the remote control signals used by
video devices not already in the TV's memory. NetCommand can automatically switch the TV along with
or learned Audio/Video (A/V) Receivers to the correct input for use with each device. It is important that
on the TV and A/V Receiver back panel match the NetCommand setup that is displayed on-screen.

To simplify the installation of NetCommand, there is a step-by-step on-screen NetCommand setup procedure in this
chapter, which details the type and brand of devices you are connecting to the TV. The NetCommand Setup also
assigns preset TV and A/V Receiver inputs for each device. You should connect each device to the TV input (both
audio and video) and to the A/V Receiver (audio) as shown in the figure below.

NetCommand
®
Figure 13
A quadruple IR Emitter cable is included with the TV.
The emitters connected to these jacks are used by the
NetCommand system to control other devices such as
VCR, DVD players, Cable boxes and Satellite receivers.
1. Connect the plug end of the supplied quadruple IR
Emitter Cable to one of the IR Output NetCommand
jacks on the TV back panel.
2. Run the cable for each of the emitter ends under,
along side or over the top of each device to be
controlled to the area of the front where the remote
control sensor is located.
3. Place the emitter end in front of the remote control
sensor of the device to be controlled. The emitter
bulb should face the remote control sensor. This
bulb emits infrared light in a cone shaped pattern.
The bulb needs to be placed far enough from the
remote control sensor to allow the cone pattern to
include the sensor.
The remote control sensor is usually behind the plastic
window of the front display panel. It is sometimes
visible when you look through the display plastic using
a flashlight and is normally a round or square cutout
behind the plastic. If you cannot see the sensor and
the device's Owner's Guide does not specify the
location, you can find it by using the device's remote
control. Hold the remote about 1/2 inch from the front
of the device. Starting from one end of the display
window plastic, press the POWER button.
If the device does not respond, move the remote
control 1 inch toward the center and try again. Repeat
this until the device responds. Note this location then
start over from the other end of the display window
plastic, repeating until the device responds again. The
remote control sensor will be somewhere between
these two positions. This is usually enough accuracy
for the placement of the IR emitters.
.
With some devices, the emitter will work better
facing downward from the top of the device. Some
experimentation may be needed. If you are not
going to be using all emitter ends, place the unused
ends behind the devices so that they cannot send
signals to the remote control sensors.
5. The emitter end being used can be secured in place
using double stick tape.
6. Place any unused emitters in an out-of-the-way
location.

IMPORTANT
If a single emitter end can be placed in a

do not use a separate emitter end for the
additional device. A single device receiving
control signals from too many emitters
or remote controls may not respond at all.

Connecting
IEEE 1394 Devices
4-Pin Style vs. 6-Pin Style
There are two different types of connectors used for
IEEE 1394 terminals and cables, a 4-pin and a 6-pin
style.
The 4-pin connector sends
digital audio signals, digital video
signals and digital control signals
back and forth between devices.
Your TV has two or three 4-pin
type connection jacks available.
All models have two inputs
on the back panel. WS-55615,
WS-55615A. WS-65615.
WS-65615A and WS-73615 have
an additional input on the front
panel.
6 pin connector
The 6-pin connector is capable
of sending the same digital audio,
video and control signals as the
4-pin connector, but the 6-pin
connector is also able to send low
voltage electrical power. This TV
does not have 6 pin connectors.
The purpose of this low voltage electrical power is
to provide operating power to a device that is not
connected directly to the household AC power such
as a camcorder. A device with a 6-pin connector can
send this electrical power to another device, or receive
electrical power from another device, or simply use a
6-pin connector without using the two additional pins.
6 pin to 4 pin adaptor
When 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 (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 will be marked near the
IEEE 1394 connector with an "S" number. The
higher the number, the faster the communication
speed. Devices with slow communication speed
can interfere with IEEE 1394 signals from faster
devices. When using NetCommand to set up
a digital recording between a faster and slower
device, select "Record Later".
Do not use an IEEE 1394 cable longer than 15
feet between each device.
This TV is an IEEE 1394a Device. IEEE 1394b
is currently under development. This system
will provide for longer distances and multiroom applications. Included in the IEEE
1394b systems are IEEE 1394a to IEEE 1394b
converters to maintain compatibility with this TV
and other IEEE 1394a devices.
A 6-pin connector cannot be
connected directly to a 4-pin
jack, and vice versa. Instead,
you will need to obtain a 6-pin to
4-pin adaptor or adaptor cable.
These cables are available from
electronic and computer stores.
If you connect a 6-pin device to the TV (such as a
camcorder) that is designed to receive electrical power
from another 6-pin device, you will need to connect
the camcorder directly to the household AC, or use the
camcorder's battery for power. If this is not possible,
then the camcorder will need to be connected directly
to another 6-pin device in the network that can provide
the electrical power.

The IEEE 1394 offers you the capability to chain devices, unlike previous audio and video connections where you
had to individually connect each device directly to the TV. For example, you can connect your DVCR to your 1394
DVD Player and then connect the 1394 DVD Player to the TV. The resulting IEEE 1394 chain will allow you to add
more devices to the chain. You will be able to see each video device on the TV's Device Selection Menu and send

Using a CableCARD
Technology
CableCARD is a nationwide system standard that
allows your local cable TV provider to supply you with
an access card customized to your account. This card
allows the TV to receive, decode and unscramble the
premium digital channels included in your cable TV
subscription, without the use of a cable box. It also
allows your cable provider to automatically update and
change your subscription. When you move to a new
cable provider's area, you simply return the CableCARD
to the original cable provider and get a new card from
your new cable provider.
Please note that CableCARD is a

The CableCARD system is "unidirectional" which
means your cable provider can send updates to the
access card and TV, however, the TV cannot send back
signals such as requests for Video-On-Demand or Payper-View request by remote control.
Digital cable channels authorized by the CableCARD
will be available on the Firewire TM IEEE 1394 network
and can be shared by other products on the network.
Some digital channels or programs may not be copied
or recorded because of copy restriction limits set by the
content owners or copyright holders.
The digital television is cable of receiving analog
basic, digital basic and digital premium cable
television programming by direct connection to a
cable system providing such programming. A security
card (CableCARD) provided by your cable operator
is required to view encrypted digital programming.
Certain advanced and interactive digital cable

A. You can connect the video output of the A/V Receiver to an unused input on the TV. Then use Edit
NetCommand to "Add" this as an "Other" device, not an A/V Receiver. On the "Connection"
screen, indicate
which TV input was used and checkmark the video box. Make sure the TV input audio box and both the
audio and video boxes for the AVR input are not checkmarked.
You should also name this device so you can
easily identify it on the Device Selection Menu. You can also use Input 3 (Camcorder) on the front panel.

A. Yes, this item will appear twice in the Device Selection Menu. Just add this unit once using the Antenna and
once using one of the S-video inputs. Make sure you indicate that this is the same manufacturer for both.
We suggest that you connect stereo audio outputs with the S-video to the TV so that you do not need to use
two inputs on the A/V Receiver. If this is a NetCommand compatible HDTV receiver and HD or SD outputs
can be switched by remote control, see Edit NetCommand
in the next chapter for NetCommand control of
this feature.

Pre-Memorized
Devices
Below is a list of several manufacturers
devices tested and shown to be compatible with NetCommand.
These devices
can be controlled without changing the setting of the remote control from TV to another product. NetCommand
may be
able to operate additional models since many manufacturers
use the same control signals to operate some or all of the
models they offer. This chart lists only the models that have been tested with NetCommand.
The NetCommand
Learning
feature is able to learn the remote control signals of most Audio Video devices.
For devices not listed in the table, or if
your device does not operate using the same remote control as the models listed below you can use the learning feature
by selecting "Other" at the [Device] screen. See the Edit NetCommand
section of this Guide.
NOTE: There are many different types of remotes and not all of them may be compatible with the learning feature. Bright
light near the TV screen can also adversely affect the learning feature. If it is not possible to learn a device, you will need
to use the original remote control of the device, or program the TV remote to operate these devices in the traditional
manner.

Adding IEEE 1394 Devices
Automatically
When an IEEE 1394 device is connected into the
TV network and is powered On, the new device will
automatically announce its presence. This process is
called device discovery and can take up to 1 minute.
Some non-audio/video or non-compatible IEEE 1394
devices, such as Personal Computers (PCs), may not
announce their presence to the TV. The TV will not
be able to show these devices in the Device Selection
menu, however, they can coexist and will still be
available to other devices on the IEEE 1394 network
that are compatible with these non-audio/video
devices.
Name for 1394 Device Screen
Figure 2
If you choose to add the discovered IEEE 1394 device,
the Name for 1394 Device screen will appear. Name
the device or use the default name that appears
automatically.
Some IEEE 1394 digital devices, such as some DVCRs,
can also operate as analog devices. For example,
some DVCRs can record and play as VHS or S-VHS,
in addition to D-VHS. This allows you to play analog
rental tapes or analog tapes from your established
library or make analog recordings from antenna or
cable systems. To use the analog capability, check the
Analog Connection box.
IEEE 1394 cable boxes and satellite receivers may
require that you use the remote control that came with
those devices. For some compatible devices, the
Cable/DBS/DTV position of the TV remote control may
be able to control operation.
New 1394 Device Screen

When your TV discovers a new IEEE 1394 device, the
New 1394 Device screen will appear. Selecting "Add"
will include the device in the Device Selection menu.
Selecting "Do Not Add" will not add the device to
the Device Selection menu. If the IEEE 1394 device
does not provide audio and video, you may not want
to add that device to the TV's Device Selection menu.
Devices that were discovered but not added to the
Device Selection menu will still be listed in the Review
screen of the Edit NetCommand® menu.

while it is operating as an analog VCR. For example, if
the IEEE 1394 device you have added is a Mitsubishi
DVCR, and you have selected an analog connection as
a second connection, then you will select Mitsubishi for
the manufacturer. If the manufacturer is not listed, select
"Other" and use the Learn screens.
Be sure to place an IR Emitter in front of the remote
control sensor, just as you have done for other
NetCommand® devices. It is necessary to use the IR
Emitter only when the DVCR is being used as an S-VHS
or VHS VCR. When the DVCR is playing or recording
digital signals in D-VHS, the TV will control the VCR
through the IEEE 1394 cable.

IEEE 1394 Devices Compatibility
Compatible
IEEE 1394 Devices
It is possible to connect devices to the TV that have IEEE 1394 connectors but are not compatible
the NetCommand® control system. Areas of compatibility to consider are:
1. Digital Video Signals
The TV is able to decode MPEG2 video. Other types
of digital video, such as DV video provided by some
camcorders, must be decoded by the source device
and sent to the TV as analog video or S-Video. If the
camcorder uses a compatible digital control system,
the IEEE 1394 cable can still provide control for the
camcorder while the TV is viewing the analog video or
S-Video signals.
2. Digital Audio Signals
When received with video signals, the TV is able to
decode Dolby Digital signals and MPEG Audio signals.
Other types of digital audio as provided by some digital
recording devices, such as MP3 Audio and DTS Audio,
cannot be decoded by the TV when received over IEEE
1394.
The TV may not be able to pass incompatible digital
audio signals on the coaxial digital audio output,
however these signals may pass on the IEEE 1394
cable to other devices.
3. Digital Control Signal
The TV is able to act as the control center for IEEE 1394
audio/video devices, such as VCRs, A/V Discs, tuners,
cable boxes and amplifiers that are compatible with the
following IEEE 1394 control standards.
EIA-775 is designed for tuning devices such as
cable boxes allowing the device to send simple
graphics. However, this standard does not allow
the TV to control the cable box by IEEE 1394.
AV/C (Audio Video Control) is designed to
provide basic controls such as play, stop,
channel selection and volume, as appropriate
for the device. Some devices may have an onscreen display for these functions.
Some devices may be a combination of two or more
types of devices. For example, there may be a
recording device that is also a tuning device. Each
portion of the device is called a sub-unit. When you
select a device on the Device Selection menu that has
with the TV or with
device on the network. These incompatible devices
may not appear on the Device Selection menu or in the
Review screen of the Edit NetCommand menu.
NetCommand
Control of Digital
Devices Using the "Learn" Feature.
Some IEEE 1394 devices such as cable boxes or
satellite receivers will not have compatible digital
control signals or require the use of the device's own
remote control. Some of these IEEE 1394 devices
will not display on-screen information through the
IEEE 1394 connection and will require using an analog
connection for on-screen displays. In many cases, to
control these digital devices, the Learning feature of
NetCommand can be used.
1. Place an IR Emitter for NetCommand
in front of the

What is a Peer-to-Peer
Connection?
Figure 11
A peer-to-peer connection allows the IEEE 1394
devices in your TV network to talk to each other
without the further need of TV intervention once the
peer-to-peer
connection
is established.
For example, the TV can setup a connection for an
A/V Disc or DVCR that sends a recorded program to
an IEEE 1394 monitor in another room. NetCommand
will establish the connection between the two devices.
Once the connection has been established, the TV
can be turned off or used to watch another device.
Setting
Connections
up a Peer-to-Peer
Connection
A peer-to-peer connection is a current connection
cannot be setup as a delayed connection.
To establish a peer-to-peer
and
connection:
1. Press REC on the TV remote.
2. Press DEVICE on the remote control to move to the
Source Device section.
3. Press ADJUST _ or _ to select the source device
you will record from.
Recording from digital channels to a DVCR is also a
peer-to-peer connection. In this case, the TV is one of
the devices in the peer-to peer connection.
4. Press ENTER to confirm selection and return to the
"Record to" section.
Analog or traditional (non-digital) devices can not be
used for peer-to-peer connections.
5. In the "Record to" section, review the destination
device (example: DVCR) and duration. Change if
necessary.
6. Press REC a second time to initiate recording.
NOTE: Multiple peer-to-peer connections can
occur simultaneously, sometimes with the same
source device. Also, please note that peer-to-peer
connections are NOT listed on the Record List
screen.

that the on-screen icon for the peer-to-peer connection
is highlighted in the Connection Section next to the
TV icon, then press CANCEL. The peer-to-peer
connection will end and the destination icon will be

IMPORTANT NOTES
WARNING: Do not leave stationary or letterbox images on-screen
for extended periods of time. Mix types of pictures shown. Uneven
picture tube aging is NOT covered by your warranty.
The normal use of a TV should include a mixture of TV
picture types. The most frequently used picture types
should fill the screen with constantly moving images
rather than stationary images or patterns. Displaying
the same stationary patterns over extended periods
of time or displaying the same stationary pattern
frequently can leave subtle but permanent ghost
images. To avoid this, mix your viewing patterns.
Reducing the initial contrast level can help slow the
aging process. Do not show the same stationary image
for more than 15% of your total TV viewing in any given
week. Display constantly moving and changing images
that fill the screen whenever possible.
This projection TV uses picture tubes to project the
image to the screen. All picture tubes age with use.
As they age, their light output is gradually reduced.
Normal TV pictures fill the screen with constantly
changing images. Under these conditions, picture
tubes age at an even rate across the entire screen.
This maintains a TV picture that is evenly bright over the
whole screen. Stationary images or images that only
partially fill the screen (leaving black or colored bars
to fill the screen), when used over extended periods
of time or when viewed repeatedly, can cause uneven
aging of the phosphors and leave subtle ghosts from
the stationary images in the picture.
Still or stationary images may be received from
broadcasters, cable channels, satellite channels, DVD
discs, video tapes, laser discs, on-line services, web/
Internet searching devices, video games, and digital TV
tuner/converter boxes.
Examples of these types of images can be, but
are not limited to the following:
_q. Letterbox top/bottom black bars:
shown at the top and bottom of the TV screen when
you watch a widescreen (16:9) movie on a standard (4:
3) TV.
Side bar images:
solid bars shown on each side of an image when
watching a standard (4:3) program on a widescreen
9) TV.
(16:
News and stock-market report bars:
ticker running at the bottom of the TV screen.
Shopping channel Iogos & pricing displays:
bright graphics that are shown constantly or repeatedly
in the same location.
Video game patterns and scoreboards
_I. Bright station Iogos:
moving or low-contrast graphics are less likely to cause
uneven aging of the picture tubes.
Online (Internet) websites:
or any other stationary or repetitive computer style
images, including digital photos or computer
applications/programs.
Closed Captioning
Mitsubishi recommends using a gray background
rather than black or a bright color if you frequently use
closed captioning.

Convergence.
Your Mitsubishi TV has three picture tubes which need
to be aligned to properly converge the projected light
beams on the screen. Each picture tube projects a
single color of red, blue or green.
During production, your TV was carefully adjusted to
properly align these colors. However, moving the TV,
the TV's location in relation to the Earth's magnetic
poles, and the passage of time can cause these
adjustments to change.

When the original signals originated on 30 frames
per second video cameras, the On setting will
automatically apply video decoding, the same as
used with the Off setting. Try the On setting when
the TV seems to have difficulties and adds too
many jagged edges to the images.
Film Mode is not effective for progressive scan (480p)

Display Formats
This is a widescreen TV (also known as a 16:9 TV). This shape reflects the new types of images available from HDTV
and many DVDs. There are still many older style narrow screen images (called 4:3 aspect ratio) you will encounter.
While there will never be a perfect solution for displaying a narrow image on a wide screen, Mitsubishi offers several
display formats to choose from.
Press FORMAT on the TV remote control to cycle
through the available display formats. The last used
format for each device will be used when you return to
that device.
Note: Not all formats are available for
PIP/POP. Side-by-Side, 3 POP and 9 POP are
only available in Standard and Expand formats.
Format Signals:
480i Signals: Traditional analog interlaced signals from or
through Ant-1 & 2, Inputs 1, 2 & 3, and Component 1 & 2.

the screen with less distortion than seen in the
Standard format. Available for analog 480i and 480p
and SD 4:3 signals only.
Stretch Plus: Similar to stretch mode, however
to minimize distortions on the side, the picture is
expanded to crop off portions of the top and bottom.
Useful when no important information is shown at the
top and/or bottom of the screen. Available for analog
480i and 480p and SD 4:3 signals only.
Narrow: Displays narrow (4:3) images in their original
shape, and adds stationary black side bars to fill the
screen. Available for 480i, 480p and digital SD 4:3
signals only.
Wide Expand: Enlarges the picture, cropping some
of the image on both sides. Useful for removing or
reducing black side bars on HD broadcasts of 720p,
converted to 4:3 images with black bars. Available for
analog 1080i, digital SD 16:9 and digital HD signals.
SD 16:9: Standard definition wide screen format signals
from digital channels and IEEE 1394 devices.

Format Definitions:
Standard: Full screen format used by HDTV signals.
Also useful when displaying 1.78:1 or 1.85:1 aspect
ratio Anamorphic DVDs. Anamorphic DVDs that have a
2.35:1 aspect ratio will still display black bars at the top
and bottom, but will show the entire image correctly.
Narrow (4:3) images will be stretched evenly from side
to side. Available for all signals.
Expand: Enlarge the picture to fill the screen, cropping
off some of the image at the top and bottom. Useful
for reducing the letterbox top and bottom bars of nonanamorphic DVD. Available for analog 480i, 480p and
digital SD 4:3 signals only.
Zoom: Enlarges the picture, cropping off some of the
image at each side and top and bottom. Useful for
removing or reducing the black top and bottom bars on
anamorphic DVDs with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio. Available
for analog 480i and 480p and SD 4:3 signals only.
Stretch: Stretches a narrow (4:3) image across the
screen, with less stretch in the center than the sides.

DVD Definitions:
Anamorphic (or "Enhanced for Widescreen TV's):
These DVDs are recorded in a special way to properly
show widescreen images on 16:9 TV sets in the
Standard format mode. This is the recommended
choice.
Non-Anamorphic (or 4:3, 1:33:1, Letterbox or Full
Screen):
These DVDs are recorded for use with traditional
shaped TVs. They may be full screen (4:3 or 1:33:1)
which crops movies to fit the narrow TV, or Letterboxed
which adds black top and bottom bars.
This information may or may not be listed on the DVD
case. Some DVDs support both types of recordings.

Bypassing
the V-Chip Lock
After you set the lock, you need your passcode to view
a V-Chip locked program, view the locked TV, cancel
the lock, or enter the V-Chip Lock menus.
If you forget your passcode, you can view the locked
TV without entering your passcode. This is done by
pressing the number 9 and QV buttons on the TV
remote control at the same time, when your passcode
is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV.
When entering the V-Chip Lock menu, this process
deletes your old passcode and prompts you to enter a
new passcode. Press HOME to exit the menu.

IMPORTANT
Some manufacturers may change their
products, or they may use more than one
remote control system. If this is the case,
your remote control may not be able to
operate your VCR, DVD, cable box, satellite
receiver, or A/V receiver.
After entering the correct codes in each position of
the remote control, use the slide switch to select
which product will respond when an operational
button is pressed. If you enter a code from the
AUDIO chart while the slide switch is set to TV, the
volume and mute functions change to match the A/V
receiver. This is useful when using an A/V receiver
with the TV all the time. In all other cases, only one
of the below devices is allowed for each slide switch
position.

Appendix F: Cleaning and Service
Cleaning
General Cleaning
Normally, light dusting with a dry, non-scratching
duster will keep your TV clean. If cleaning beyond this
is needed, please use the following guidelines:
•
DO NOT allow liquid to enter the TV through the
ventilation slots or any crevice.
•
DO NOT use any strong or abrasive cleaners as
these can scratch the surfaces.
•
DO NOT use any cleaners with ammonia, bleach,
alcohol, benzine, or thinners as these can dull the
surfaces.
•
DO NOT spray liquids or cleaners directly on the
TV's surfaces.
•
DO NOT scrub or rub the TV harshly. Wipe it
gently.
First, turn off the TV and unplug the power cord from
the power outlet.
Top and Sides of the TV:
•
Gently wipe down your TV with a soft, non-abrasive
cloth such as cotton flannel or a clean cloth diaper,
lightly moistened with water. Dry with a second dry,
soft, non-abrasive cloth.
For oily dirt, add a few drops of mild liquid detergent,
such as dishwashing detergent to the water used
to moisten the cloth. Rinse with a second cloth
moistened only with water. Dry with a third dry, soft,
non-abrasive cloth.
Screen behind the Diamond
ShieldTM:
•
Follow the instructions for the top and sides,
however, wipe gently in an up and down motion,
following the grooves in the screen.
•
Clean the entire screen evenly, not just sections of
the screen.
•
Do not allow liquid to drip down the grooves of the
screen as some liquid may enter the TV between the
screen and the screen frame.
•
You may purchase Mitsubishi Screen Cleaner, part
number CLEANER-VSS, by calling (800) 553-7278.
Cloth speaker
Warnings:
grills:
• Lightly brush with a soft cloth brush, or lint brush.
• If necessary, you can vacuum using the brush and
hose attachments of your vacuum cleaner. Do not
use the beater brush section on the grill cloth.
Service
If you are unable to correct a problem with your
TV, consult your Mitsubishi dealer or a Mitsubishi
Authorized Warranty Service Center.
•
DO NOT adjust any controls other than those
described in this Owner's Guide.
•
DO NOT remove the protective back cover of your
TV.
Menus not described and shown in this owner's guide
are designed for Factory use and for Authorized
Service Personnel. Damage caused to the TV by nonauthorized changes or changes to these menus made
by non-authorized persons are not covered under
warranty.
This TV is very heavy! Exercise extreme
care when moving TV as foreign material
may become embedded in the castor wheels
which could damage wood or other delicate
flooring.

For the WS-48515:
1. Insert a plastic card, like a credit card at the top
right or left side of the screen between the molding
clip and the Diamond Shield. Pull towards you to
loosen the clip. Then, very carefully, insert a flat
head screwdriver into the space at the top of the
molding clip and gently pull towards you. After
unsnapping the top, the rest of the clip should be
unsnapped by hand. Do not use force. Both the
right and left side clips must be removed. Proceed
to steps 2-4.
For the WS-55515, WS-65515 and WS-65515A:
1. Remove the left and right side molding clips by
inserting a plastic card, like a credit card between
the molding clip and screen, at the top, middle and
bottom. After loosening the clip with the card, pull
on a corner of the clip closest to the screen. Do
not use force, the clips should slide out of place.
Both the right and left side clips must be removed.
