HOW TO SET UP YOUR NEW

MARANTZ DLPTM REAR PROJECTION TV

ANTENNA

Unless your Rear Projection TV is connected to a cable TV system or to a centralized antenna system, a good outdoor color TV antenna is recommended for best performance. However, if you are located in an exceptionally good signal area that is free from interference and multiple image ghosts, an indoor antenna may be sufficient.

LOCATION

Select an area where sunlight or bright indoor illumination will not fall directly on the picture screen. Also, be sure that the location selected allows a free flow of air to and from the perforated back cover of the set.

To avoid cabinet warping, cabinet color changes, and increased chance of set failure, do not place the Rear Projection TV where temperatures can become excessively hot, for example, in direct sunlight or near a heating appliance, etc.

VIEWING

The major benefit of the MARANTZ Rear Projection Television is its large viewing screen. To see this large screen at its best, test various locations in the room to find the optimum spot for viewing.

The best picture is seen by sitting directly in front of the Rear Projection TV and about 10 to 18 feet from the screen. Picture brightness decreases as the viewer moves to the left and right of the receiver.

During daylight hours, reflections from outside light may appear on the screen. If so, drapes or screens can be used to reduce the reflection or the Rear Projection TV can be located in a different section of the room.

If the Rear Projection TV’s audio output will be connected to a Hi-Fi system’s external speakers, the best audio performance will be obtained by placing the speakers equidistant from each side of the receiver cabinet and as close as possible to the height of the picture screen center. For best stereo separation, place the external speakers at least four feet from the side of the Rear Projection TV, place the surround speakers to the side or behind the viewing area. Differences in room sizes and acoustical environments will require some experimentation with speaker placement for best performance.

Notes

 

 

 

1

Lamp Explosion

This set has a 200W lamp. The lamp rarely breaks. If it does, it will make a pop noise.

 

 

 

2

On time

It takes time (17 seconds) to display picture on television compared to a conventional color tele-

 

 

vision. LED at the front panel indicates the set is under power on condition. (See note on page 8)

 

 

 

3

Restart time

It takes about 60 seconds for the picture to re-appear, after quickly pressing power OFF

 

 

then ON again. Three LEDs indicate the set is under power on condition. On: Three LED’s

 

 

blink alternately. Off: One LED blinks.

 

 

 

4

When power off

Fans will keep working for about 2 minutes after power OFF to cool down the lamp.

 

 

 

5

Lamp replacement

It is recommended that you replace the lamp every 4000 hours to obtain good picture bright-

 

 

ness (This is not a guarantee that life time of a lamp is 4000 hours).

 

 

 

6

Bright and

This set has fixed pixel elements. There may be some dark/bright spots on the

 

dark spot

element. However, this is not a defect.

 

 

 

7

Streaks in

Please set proper signal strength. You may see streaks in picture on some channels without

 

Picture

proper antenna. Streaks may disappear when signal is strong. Place antenna and cable

 

 

away from the AC power cord.

 

 

 

8

Bend, tilt

Due to varying signal content, you may see vertical or horizontal lines bend occasionally in

 

 

PC mode. However, this phenomenon is not a defect. It’s caused by a lack of picture content

 

 

due to under-scanning in PC mode.

 

 

 

9

PC mode

This set provides the best picture quality in SVGA mode. It is recommended that you set your

 

 

PC to SVGA mode. In OVERSCAN mode, top/bottom icon will be approximately 19% to 50%

 

 

within the viewable area, and should be accessible to grab and click. Picture is overscanned

 

 

when receiving XGA or higher resolution signals.

 

 

 

10

Burning

Please do not leave the TV set with still pictures like games, stock market qutoes, and other

 

 

non-moving pictures. Otherwise it may cause a pattern burn on the screen.

 

 

 

11

Protect Operation

When the lamp is cooling down, the remote control does not respond within 15 seconds. LED at

 

when power on

the front panel shows if your set accepts remote commands. When blinking is slow, your set is

 

 

ready to accept remote commands.

These terminals are used to connect external speakers, which are used for the surround sound feature. The volume level is controlled by the television’s main volume. These speaker output terminals can be turned on and off in the THEATER-SPEAKER SETUP menu. Use speakers with 8-Ohm impedance only.

DIGITAL IN (Coaxial Input)

This jack provides high quality audio input from a Dolby Digital DVD player or HDTV Set Top Box. This input can be used for VIDEO: 1 or VIDEO: 2 audio, as selected in the THEATER-INPUT SOURCE menu. (see page 65)

DIGITAL IN (Optical Input)

This jack provides high quality audio input from a Dolby Digital DVD player or HDTV Set Top Box. Use a digital optical cable to connect your TV to a compatible device. This input can be used for VIDEO: 1 or VIDEO: 2 audio, as selected in the THEATERINPUT SOURCE menu. (see page 65).

NOTE: This TV’s optical digital input jack fully complies with the international standard governing this type of jack (IEC958), and is designed for connection to a Dolby Digital or PCM from DVD Player or HDTV Set Top Box. Older equipment, some of which is not fully compliant with IEC958, may not be compatible with the Dolby Digital bit stream. Such a connection using anything other than Dolby Digital AC-3 or PCM bit stream could create a high noise level, causing damage to your speakers.

REAR PANEL JACKS

AUDIO/VIDEO 1, 2

The INPUT button on the front panel will step through each signal source input each time it is pressed. The VID1~VID3 buttons on the remote control will select each video source each time they are pressed. Use the audio and video inputs to connect external devices, such as VCRs, camcorders, laserdisc players, DVD players etc. (If you have mono sound, insert the audio cable into the left audio jack.)

NOTE: You may use VIDEO, S-VIDEO, or COMPONENT: Y-PBPR Inputs to connect to VIDEO 1, 2. But note that only one of these may be used at a time.

COMPONENT INPUT takes priority over S-VIDEO input and S-VIDEO input takes priority over VIDEO input.

MONITOR OUT

These jacks provide fixed audio and video signals which are used for recording. Use the S-VIDEO Output for high quality video output. There is no MONITOR OUT when using COMPONENT VIDEO INPUT.

NOTE: S-VIDEO Output may be used for recording, only when the input is of S-VIDEO type.

S-VIDEO Inputs 1 and 2

Inputs 1 and 2 provide S-VIDEO (Super Video) jacks for connecting equipment with S-VIDEO output capability.

COMPONENT VIDEO Y-PBPR INPUT

Y-PBPR jacks provide for connecting equipment with this capability, such as a DVD player.

NOTE: DO NOT connect standard VIDEO or S-VIDEO when using Y-PBPR input.

Your component outputs may be labeled Y, B-Y, and R-Y. In this case, connect the components B-Y output to the TV’s PB input and the components R-Y output to the TV’s PR input.

It may be necessary to adjust TINT or turn AUTO COLOR-ON to obtain optimum picture quality when using the Y-PBPR inputs. (see pages 57 and 58)

To ensure no copyright infringement, the MONITOR OUT output will be abnormal, when using the Y-PBPR jacks.

When using the Y-PBPR jacks, Component Y-PBPR signal will be viewed as a blank PIP sub-picture. (see page 28)

PC 1 AUDIO INPUT

Connect external devices for audio in PC mode. (see page 71)

PC 1 D-SUB INPUT

Use this 15-pin D-Sub Input for your PC connection. (see page 68)

ANTENNA Input/Output

The remote control allows you to switch between two separate 75-Ohm RF antenna inputs, ANT A and ANT B. ANT A input can be displayed as a main picture or sub-picture. ANT B can only be displayed as a main picture. (ANT B cannot be displayed as a subpicture.) The antenna output labeled “TO CONVERTER” allows the ANT A connection to pass directly to a different source, such as a cable box, only when ANT B is displayed as a main picture.

TIPS ON REAR PANEL CONNECTIONS

NOTE: Turn off the Rear Projection Television and the PC before connecting or disconnecting any cables.

TIPS ON REAR PANEL CONNECTIONS

S-VIDEO connections are provided for high performance laserdisc players, VCRs etc. that have this feature. Use these connections in place of the standard video connection if your device has this feature.

If your device has only one audio output (mono sound), connect it to the left audio jack on the television.

Refer to the operating guide of your other electronic equipment for additional information on connecting your hook-up cables.

A single VCR can be used for VCR#1 and VCR#2, but note that a VCR cannot record its own video or line output. (INPUT 1 in example on page 13) Refer to your VCR operating guide for more information on line input-output connection.

You may use VIDEO, S-VIDEO, or COMPONENT: Y-PBPR inputs, but note that only one of these may be used at a time.

Connect only 1 component to each input jack.

COMPONENT: Y-PBPR connections are provided for high performance components, such as DVD players. Use these connections in place of the standard video connection if your device has this feature.

When using the Y-PBPR input jacks, connect your components audio output to the TV’s Left and Right audio input jacks.

Your component outputs may be labeled Y, B-Y, and R-Y. In this case, connect the components B-Y output to the TV’s PB input and the components R-Y output to the TV’s PR input.

It may be necessary to adjust TINT or turn AUTO COLOR-ON to obtain optimum picture quality when using the Y-PBPR inputs. (see pages 57 and 58)

To ensure no copyright infringement, the MONITOR OUT output will be abnormal, when using the Y-PBPR jacks.

PICTURE-IN-PICTURE (PIP)

Your MARANTZ Projection TV incorporates Dual Tuner technology designed for improved viewing enjoyment. This Dual Tuner feature allows you to view antenna inputs on both the main picture and sub-picture simultaneously, with separate tuning control for each. The Dual Tuner can operate with only one input (ANT A only) or two inputs (ANT A and ANT B).

ANT A input can be viewed as both the main picture and the sub-picture simultaneously. ANT B can only be viewed as a main picture. (Component: Y-PBPR input can be viewed as sub-picture only when SPLIT PIP mode is selected.) To select between main picture and PIP sub-picture tuning, press the PIP CH button on the remote. The highlighted channel display will move with every press of the PIP CH button. When the top channel display is highlighted, channel tuning is for the main picture. When the lower channel display is highlighted, channel tuning is for the PIP sub-picture. This method of picture tuning is the same for one antenna input (ANT A only) and two antenna inputs (ANT A and ANT B).

The Picture-in-Picture feature is convenient when you want to watch more than one program at the same time. You can watch a TV program while viewing other programs from the ANT A source or any of the video inputs.
