Last weekend we went looking for a flat screen TV. When we told the salesman that it was going to be spending the winter in an unheated building he got a little nervous. He claimed they had several returned because the luquid behind the screen had frozen and cracked the screen.
Everything I have read about them says their operating temperature is between +40*F and 100*F. Anything below 40 and the picture can become pixilated due to the slow response of the LED's or LCD's. Nowhere have I seen any warnings about the screen literally freezing and cracking. On the other hand every manufacturer I've checked out says they don't gaurantee units placed in temperatures below -20*F.
Does anyone have any experience with an LED or LCD TV failing due to being left in sub zreo temperatures? We have 3 in our new Adventurer and I'd hate to see them damaged due to the cold weather.
The storage temp is well below freezing but the operating temps are above freezing. The recommendation is to warm the RV to at least 40 degrees for 24 hours before turning on the TV. I'm not hanging around in a freezing RV and watching television anyway ... but some might.
