TV in garage ?

What are the operating temps for a tv? Can I just hang one in the garage and forget about it? Lcd vs Plasma, etc? Not doing led or anything, trying to do it on the cheap. Anyone have a 40" or better theyre wanting to move?

Most electronics built for consumer use are rated for an internal maximum temperature of around 120 degrees F and a minimum operating temperature of 32 degrees F.

You can expect that the internal temperature will be 20-30 degrees warmer than the ambient air near the unit. That makes operation at above 85 or so and below 20 or so iffy. If you want to have the TV in an unheated and uninsulated garage, I'd unplug it when not using it, and not plug it in (some components are powered even when its off) in extreme temperatures.

Mil-spec electronic components and assemblies are designed to run from -40 to +140 F, and would be no problem if you can afford it.

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

As the name "liquid crystal display" (LCD) implies, the display technology uses a substance that shares the same properties as liquids. It therefore can freeze if left in cold enough temperatures. In most cases however, it will also defrost without damage once returned to room temperature. Check the specifications for your LCD device and you'll find two temperature ranges given -- one for storage and one for use. LCDs will only work properly in a certain temperature range, and can usually be stored in a larger range with colder and warmer temperatures. Most LCDs can be stored down to -40F or up to 115F before damage occurs, but will only operate properly in a more comfortable 50F to 90F range. This varies by screen, so you'll want to check the specifications in your TV's manual. If your LCD is left out in the cold, make sure to allow it to rise to room temperature before attempting to power it on, and it should be just fine.

Over 10 years of experience and i have seen some freeze
