Notes on Your New TV
Projection Lamp:
Periodic replacement of the projection lamp will maintain the picture
quality.
Refer to the "Replacing the Lamp" section of the Operating Instructions.
Picture Quality:
The illustrations below highlight the differences between high-
definition and standard-definition signals.
Shown above is a high-definition signal with wide mode (16:9 aspect ratio). A high-
definition signal fills the screen with a crisp, clear picture with no ghosting and less noise.
Shown below is a standard-definition signal with 4:3 aspect ratio. The picture is fine with
the Normal mode, but not as good as the high-definition signal. When a standard-definition
signal is viewed in the Zoom or Wide Zoom mode, you can enjoy an enlarged picture on
your TV screen, but picture quality may vary.
This TV performs best with high-definition signals. Be sure to read the "Considering the
Signal Types" section on this page.
Screen Mode: Normal
Screen Mode: Wide Zoom
