Appendix A: TV Care
Lamp-Cartridge Replacement and Cleaning
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.
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, the selected lamp mode, and
your viewing patterns. Warmer air or
poor ventilation shorten the lamp life, as
does setting Lamp Energy to Bright
and turning the television on and off
Mitsubishi warrants the lamp for one (1) year from the date of original
TV purchase at retail.

MDEA recommends that you use only genuine Replacement Lamp Assemblies purchased directly from Mitsubishi or a
Mitsubishi Authorized Dealer or Mitsubishi Authorized Service Center. MDEA advises that replacement lamps obtained
separately from the Lamp Cartridge and/or Lamp Assemblies obtained from unauthorized sellers may be incorrect for
your television, may not fit or perform properly and may even damage your television. MDEA can not be responsible
for the performance, reliability or safety of any replacement lamps that are obtained from unauthorized sources.
• 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.
