IMPORTANT NOTES

Warning:

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.

Examples of these types of images can be, but are not limited to the following:

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

(16:9) TV.

News and stock-market report bars: ticker running at the bottom of the TV screen.

Shopping channel logos & pricing displays: bright graphics that are shown constantly or repeatedly in the same location.

Video game patterns and scoreboards

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.

Bright station logos: moving or low-contrast graphics are less likely to cause uneven aging of the picture tubes.

When using a computer or similar device through a VGA input, be sure to turn on the Screen Saver feature and set the activation time to 5 minutes or less. If your computer program allows, you should also set your toolbars to the hidden mode.

Online (Internet) websites: or any other stationary or repetitive computer style images, including digital photos.

Closed Captioning

Mitsubishi recommends using a gray background rather than black or a bright color if you frequently use closed captioning.

Connecting External Devices & NetCommand ® Setup

NetCommand is able to control many current audio and video devices by sending remote control signals from the TV to each device. NetCommand is also able to learn the remote control signals used by most audio video devices not already in the TV’s memory. NetCommand will also automatically switch the TV and compatible or learned Audio/Video

(A/V) Receivers to the correct input used with each device. It is important that the inputs on the TV and A/V Receiver match the NetCommand Setup.

To simplify the installation of NetCommand, there is a step-by-step on-screen NetCommand Setup procedure. This procedure details the type and brands 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 ® Pre-Memorized Devices

Below is a list of several manufacturers devices tested and shown to be compatible with the NetCommand control system. When you use these devices you will be able to control them 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.

For each manufacturer, models other than those specified above may be compatible.

If the manufacturer of the device you own is not listed below or if your device does not operate using the same remote control as the models listed below, you should use the learning feature to add your device to the NetCommand memory.

The remote control signals of most audio video devices can be learned by NetCommand. However, there will be some types of signals that cannot be learned.

For devices not listed in the table above, you can use the learning feature by selecting “Other” at the [Device] screen.

The procedure for this is outlined in the Edit NetCommand section of this book, Chapter 3.

NOTE: There are many different types of remotes and some of them may not 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.

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.

OR ...

IR Emitter Repeater

The emitters connected to these jacks are not used by

NetCommand, but will repeat any IR command received by the TV. These emitters allow the TV to be the remote control sensor for other devices outside the range of the hand-held remote control. Do not use these repeaters with devices that can receive the remote control signal directly, as the signals can interfere with each other.

1B. Connect the IR emitter to IR EMITTER-REPEATER on the TV back panel.

After you have used 1A or 1B,

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.

4. 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.

IMPORTANT

If a single emitter end can be placed in a position that will operate more than one device, do not use a separate emitter end for the additional device. A single device receiving remote 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.

4 pin connector

6 pin connector

Connection Styles

There are two different connection styles that can be used when connecting IEEE 1394 devices. Use the style that fits your network of audio/video products.

The 4-pin connector is capable of sending digital audio signals, digital video signals and digital control signals back and forth between devices. Your TV has three 4-pin type connection jacks available.

One is on the front panel and two are on the back.

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. The TV does not have 6 pin connectors.

Direct Device-To-Device Style

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 D-VHS 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 information from any IEEE 1394 device to other compatible devices.

The purpose of this low voltage electrical power is to provide the needed 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 6pin connector without using the two additional pins.

6 pin to 4 pin adaptor

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, you will need to obtain a 6-pin to

4-pin 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, then 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.

�������

���

��

Hub Connection Style

�������

���

The IEEE 1394 also offers you the capability to connect your devices using 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.

Connecting IEEE 1394 Devices, continued

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 (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 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 multi-room 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.

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.

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

Figure 1

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 “Not Added” 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.

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 D-VHS

VCRs, can also operate as analog devices. For example, some D-VHS VCRs can record and play as VHS or S-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.

Select the TV input that you used when you connected the video or S-Video cables. You may also select the

TV or A/V Receiver input you used when you connected the stereo audio cables. Match the input names for the

TV Input and A/V Receiver Input selections. If your A/V

Receiver has other inputs than those listed in the menu, those other inputs are not available for NetCommand.

Figure 3. IEEE 1394 Device Type screen

Once the device type is selected, then the Device screen is displayed so the manufacturer can be selected. If the manufacturer is listed, then you may be able to control this device while it is operating as an analog VCR. For example, if the IEEE 1394 device you have added is a

Mitsubishi D-VHS VCR, 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.

The playback and record control of some DV camcorders may still operate by the IEEE 1394 cable automatically, even though you must use the video or S-video cable for the picture. In this case, when you select the Camcorder, be sure to select analog (not digital) from the pop up when a camcorder is selected from the Device Selection menu.

Then the picture is shown via the analog connection but control is from IEEE 1394.

Be sure to place an IR Emitter in front of the remote control sensor, just as you have done for other

NetCommand® traditional devices. It is necessary to use the IR Emitter only when the D-VHS VCR is being used as an S-VHS or VHS VCR. When the D-VHS VCR is playing or recording digital signals in D-VHS, the TV will control the VCR through the IEEE 1394 cable.

Compatible IEEE 1394 Devices

It is possible to connect devices to the TV that have IEEE 1394 connectors but are not compatible with the TV or with 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.

The TV is not able to control IEEE 1394 devices that use other types of control protocols. Incompatible digital audio, video and/or control information will still be able to pass from one device through the TV to another 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.

2. Digital Audio 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.

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.

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.

1. Place an IR Emitter for NetCommand in front of the device’s remote control sensor (see IR Emitters, page 26).

2. On the Name for 1394 Device screen (Figure 2, page 46) check mark the Analog Connection check box.

• 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 on-screen display for these functions.

3. Select the device type on the IEEE 1394 Device Type screen (Figure 3, page 47) of cable box, DBS or similar tuning device.

4. Select “Other” as a manufacturer and then highlight

“Learn” and press ENT(er) on the Device screen (Figure 4, page 47).

5. Follow the device learning instructions found in Edit

NetCommand section of Chapter 3.

• HAVi (Home Audio Video Interoperablity) is designed to handle AV/C type of control. Some HAVi devices are able to “teach” the TV how to control more than basic functions, this allows the TV to control non-traditional devices or new types of devices not yet developed. The device will inform the TV what information and control buttons will be needed on device specific menus so the additional functions can be controlled. The ability to learn new menus from a HAVi device is only available on the following models: WS-55813, WS-65713, WS-65813 and

WS-73713.

6. The Connection screen (Figure 5, page 47) follows the learning screens. If analog connections are used, select the correct inputs. If analog connections are not used, uncheck the audio and video connections for both the TV and AVR inputs.

7. Proceed with the Finish screen.

This will allow NetCommand to use the learned remote control these IEEE 1394 devices.

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 sub-units, a pop-up menu will appear so you can select which sub-unit section you wish to use.

48

Note: When using the NetCommand learning feature for

IEEE 1394 devices that do not have analog connections, the GUIDE function will require pressing GUIDE twice.

The first press of GUIDE will display the TV’s digital channel guide. The second press will display the program guide for the device.

A/V Setting Descriptions: Video

Video Settings

◊ Contrast

Provides a slider to adjust the white-to-black level. Low contrast shows a variety of shades in darker images, while high contrast shows darker images more uniformly black and makes colors appear more vibrant. In most home lighting situations, a medium contrast looks best. High contrast is good for brightly lit environments.

◊ Brightness

Provides a slider to adjust the overall brightness of the picture.

◊ Sharpness

Provides a slider to adjust the detail and clarity.

◊ Color

Provides a slider to adjust the color intensity.

◊ Tint

Provides a slider to adjust the proportion of red to green.

◊ Color Temp (Color Temperature)

Allows you to adjust how white images are displayed. Your choices are:

• Low 6500K or Low (for DTV): White images will have a warm cast to them. This adjustment is an average and can vary due to ambient room lighting, video scene brightness and the TV’s age. The Low 6500K represents the 6500K industry standard for NTSC (non-DTV) pictures.

• Medium: White images will be balanced between the Low (warm) and High (cool) settings.

• High: White images will have a cool cast to them.

This setting may provide the most realistic picture under bright lighting.

◊ Film Mode - On or Off

On is the automatic setting and will automatically detect and apply film decoding correction for signals that originated on 24 frames per second film cameras and then were converted for broadcast to 30 frames per second video.

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 Off 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) devices, and high definition signals.

Figure 23

This allows you to reset the convergence to the original factory settings. The message “Convergence reset completed” will be displayed when the factory defaults have been restored.

Figure 22. Advanced Menu, 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.

As a special feature, you have the ability to adjust the red and blue light beams in reference to the fixed green light beam. This process is called convergence. There are two separate memories for convergence. One, for

SD 480i/480p signals; the other for HD 1080i signals. SD convergence should be adjusted while watching an SD source and HD convergence should be adjusted while watching an HD source.

The TV should be fully warmed up before adjusting

Convergence. Turn the TV On and wait at least 30 minutes before starting adjustments.

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 a subtle but permanent ghost image. To avoid this, mix your viewing pattern. Do not show the same stationary image for more than

15% of your total TV viewing in any one week. Display constantly moving and changing images that fill the screen whenever possible.

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 include, but are not limited to the following:

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.

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 used in the picture tubes and can leave subtle ghosts of the stationary images in the picture.

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.

Stock-market report bars: ticker running at the bottom of the TV screen.

Shopping channel logos & pricing displays: bright graphics that are shown constantly or repeatedly in the same location.

Video game patterns and scoreboards

Bright station logos: moving or low-contrast graphics are less likely to cause uneven aging of the picture tubes.

When using a computer or similar device through a

VGA input, be sure to turn on the Screen Saver feature and set the activation time to 5 minutes or less. If your computer program allows, you should also set your toolbars to the hidden mode.

On-line (Internet) web sites: or any other stationary or repetitive computer style images.

Closed Caption Backgrounds: When set to black or bright color, if Close Caption will be used frequently, Mitsubishi suggests the use of the gray background.

NetCommand ® Controlled Peer-to-Peer Connections

What is a Peer-to-Peer Connection?

Figure 1

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. Recording from Ant-DTV 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.

Analog or traditional (non-digital) devices can not be used for peer-to-peer connections.

Setting up a Peer-to-Peer Connection

A peer-to-peer connection is a current connection and cannot be setup as a delayed connection.

To establish a peer-to-peer connection:

1. Press REC on the TV remote.

2. Press DEVICE on the remote control to see the source device choices that you can recording from.

3. Press ADJUST or to select the source device you will record from.

4. Press ENT(er) to confirm selection and return to the

“Record to” section.

5. In the “Record to” section, review the destination device (example: DVHS) and duration. Change if necessary.

6. Press REC a second time to initiate recording.

Figure 1. Record screen

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.

Canceling a Current Peer-to-Peer

Connection

When a peer-to-peer connection has been established, you can cancel the connection by highlighting the source device in the Device Selection menu. Confirm that the on-screen icon for the peer-to-peer connection is 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 removed. If there is more than one peer-to-peer connection for the same device, all of the connections will all be canceled.

Display Formats

This is a wide screen 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.

• Standard: This is the full screen format. HDTV signals usually use this format. This format is useful to display

Anamorphic DVDs that have 1.78:1 or 1.85:1 aspect ratios. 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.

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.

• Expand: This will enlarge the picture to fill the screen, cropping off some of the image at the top and bottom.

This is useful to reduce the letterbox top and bottom bars of non-anamorphic DVD. Available for analog 480i,

480p and digital SD 4:3 signals only.

Definitions:

480i Signals: Traditional interlaced signals from or through

Ant-A, Ant-B, Inputs 1-3, Component 1 & 2, and Inp-DTV.

• Zoom: This will enlarge the picture, cropping off some of the image at each side and top and bottom. This is useful to remove or reduce the black top and bottom bars on anamorphic DVDs with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio.

Available for analog 480i and 480p signals only.

• Stretched: This format will stretch a narrow (4:3) image across the screen, however, there is less stretch in the center than the sides. This will allow the entire narrow image to be displayed across the screen with less distortion than seen in the Standard format. Available for analog 480i and 480p signals only.

480p Signals:

Component 1 & 2 and Inp-DTV.

1080i Signals:

Progressive scan DVD signals through

High definition signals received through

Component 1 & 2 and Inp-DTV.

• 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 signals only.

SD 4:3: Standard definition narrow screen format signals from Ant-DTV and IEEE 1394 devices.

SD 16:9: Standard definition wide screen format signals from Ant-DTV and IEEE 1394 devices.

• Narrow: This format will display narrow (4:3) images in their original shape, and add stationary gray side bars to fill the screen. Available for 480i, 480p and digital

SD 4:3 signals only.

HD: High definition wide screen format signals from Ant-DTV and IEEE-1394 devices.

Anamorphic (also listed as “Enhanced for Widescreen

TVs): These DVDs are recorded in a special way to properly show high-resolution images on 16:9 TV sets in the standard mode. This is the recommended choice.

• 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 on HD broadcasts of 4:3 images with black bars. Available for analog

1080i, digital SD 16:9 and digital HD signals.

Non-Anamorphic (also listed as 4:3, 1:33:1, Letterbox or Full Screen): These DVDs are recorded for use with traditional shaped TVs. They may be full screen (on

4:3 or 1:33:1) which crops movies to fit the narrow TV, or

Letterboxed which adds black top and bottom bars.

IMPORTANT

Caution should be observed when using the Narrow format due to the stationary gray side bars. Please see guidelines concerning stationary images, page 72.

This information may or may not be listed on the DVD case. Some DVDs support both types of recordings.

Appendix A:

Bypassing the V-Chip Lock:

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. Pressing HOME at this time will cancel the entire passcode.

Bypassing Front Button Lock

If you have misplaced the remote control, you can bypass the front button lock by pressing and holding the MENU button on the front panel for more than 8 seconds.

IMPORTANT

Cut along the dotted line and file bypass instructions in a safe place for future reference.

IMPORTANT

When changing or deleting your passcode, you must use the remote control included with this TV. You cannot use a Mitsubishi remote control from another component or a

“universal” remote.

Appendix B: High Definition Input Connection Compatibility

Component-1 and Component-2 Inputs

These inputs are compatible with component video signals from standard DVD players and other equipment sending a standard NTSC component video signal (480i). These inputs are also compatible with newer DVD players sending 480p and are compatible with signals from digital TV receivers that send 1080i component video signals.

VGA Input

This input will accommodate most computers capable of supporting a VGA monitor. The only compatible display resolution is 640x480. The sync rate is 60 Hz.

SVGA and XVGA resolutions are not supported.

InputDTV

This input is compatible with most standard DTV and satellite receivers with component video (YPbPr) outputs. Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i/480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types. Please check the DTV receiver specifications before connecting.

This input is compatible with some DTV receivers using

RGB with “separate H and V sync”. Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i, 480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types. Industry standards for DTV RGB signals

(systems, synchronization, timing, and signal strengths) are not currently established. These inputs will not be compatible with all DTV receivers that offer RGB, HV outputs. RGB, HV signals with less than 5 cables are not compatible.

If your DTV receiver offers both DTV component video signals and DTV RGB, HV signals, we suggest you use the DTV component video signals. Check the DTV receiver specifications before connecting.

IEEE 1394 & HAVi System Compatibility

This television is designed to conform to IEEE 1394 AV/C and HAVi Software standards in effect at the time of development. This exciting new networking and control technology is designed to provide high-performance digital connections and product control, making products easier to use.

At the time of development,the only products available for compatibility testing - the Mitsubishi and JVC DVHS VCRs.

These D-VHS VCRs are fully compatible with this TV.

As other manufacturers produce products that use IEEE 1394 AV/C and HAVi, they will be responsible for the development of their products to 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.

Full HAVi compatibility is limited to models WS-55813, WS-65713, WS-65813 and WS-73713. Basic function HAVi compatibility is available with the other TV models.

Appendix F: Cleaning and Service

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.

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:

Anti-Glare Diamond Shield™:

WS-55813 and WS-65813

Anything abrasive can scratch the anti-glare coating of the Diamond Shield™ and household and window cleaners can remove the coating.

First, turn off the TV and unplug the power cord from the power outlet.

• Follow the instructions for cleaning top and sides, however, moisten the cloth with only water.

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.

• Do not use any cleaning chemicals on the Diamond

Shield™.

• DO NOT use Mitsubishi Screen Cleaner on the Anti-

Glare Diamond Shield™

• 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.

Cloth speaker 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.

Screen behind the Diamond Shield™:

• Follow the instructions for the top and sides, however, wipe gently in an up and down motion, following the grooves in the screen.

General Cleaning Warnings:

• DO NOT allow liquid to enter the TV through the ventilation slots or any crevice.

• Clean the entire screen evenly, not just sections of the screen.

• DO NOT use any strong or abrasive cleaners as these can scratch the surfaces.

• 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.

• DO NOT use any cleaners with ammonia, bleach, alcohol, benzine, or thinners as these can dull the surfaces.

• You may purchase Mitsubishi Screen Cleaner, part number CLEANER-VSS, by calling (800) 553-7278.

• DO NOT spray liquids or cleaners directly on the

TV’s surfaces.

IMPORTANT

DO NOT use any kind of abrasive or liquid cleaner on the surface of the TV screen or Diamond Shield™.

• DO NOT scrub or rub the TV harshly. Wipe it gently.

Service

Connection: Helpful Hints

Q My VCR (or other device) does not have two sets of stereo audio outputs; how can I connect this

device’s audio to both the TV and the A/V Receiver?

A. There are two solutions:

1. Connect the single set of stereo audio outputs to the TV only. Use the Edit NetCommand® feature to “Change” the setup of this device. In the Connection screen part of “Change” make sure both audio and video for the TV input are check marked and neither the audio or the video for the AVR input are check marked. This will allow the NetCommand system to use the TV outputs to transfer the device’s audio to the A/V Receiver. See Edit

NetCommand Setup.

2. Use RCA type “Y” splitter cables to split the device’s audio output to be connected to both the TV and the A/V

Receiver.

Q. I have both the TV monitor stereo audio output and TV digital audio output connected to the same

input designation on my A/V Receiver, how do I switch between analog audio and digital audio?

A. This depends on the individual A/V Receiver. Some A/V Receivers will switch automatically to digital when a digital audio signal is supplied so you do not need to do anything. “Other” A/V Receivers can be manually switched by remote control, for these types of A/V Receivers, see the NetCommand Guide Appendix for NetCommand control of this features. Some A/V Receivers will require that you make this change on the front panel of the A/V Receiver.

Q. The front panel of my A/V Receiver is too tall or too convex for the IR emitter signal to reach the

remote control sensor of the A/V Receiver. What can I do?

A. There are several possible solutions.

1. Mount the IR Emitter on the top, front edge of the A/V Receiver over the remote control sensor. Use tape to secure it in place.

2. Mount the IR Emitter on the underside of the self above the A/V Receiver (if the A/V Receiver is in a cabinet).

Use double sided tape to secure it in place.

3. Some small stick-on emitters from other manufacturers may be compatible with the IR Emitter – Home Theater jacks, these may be used instead of the supplied IR Emitters.

Q. I occasionally need to see the menu from my A/V Receiver, how can I connect it to the TV for this

purpose?

A. You can connect the video output of the A/V Receiver to an unused input on the TV. Then use the 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 check mark the video box. Make sure the TV input audio box and both the audio and video boxes for the AVR input are not check marked. You should also name this device so you can easily identify it on the Device Selection Menu. Or use Input 3 (Camcorder) on the front panel.

Q. I have a high definition receiver I would like to connect and it also has an S-video output I would

like to be able use as well. Is there are way to connect this receiver both ways?

A. Yes, this item will appear twice in the Device Selection Menu. Just add this unit twice, once using the Inp-

DTV 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 that HD or SD outputs can be switched by remote control, see the NetCommand Guide Appendix for

NetCommand control of this feature.
