    Would freezing temperatures to -10F affect the condition of a microwave oven with LED display left in a unheated cabin over the winter. Is it better to leave unit plugged in [with power] or to unplug it?

Just spoke with a vizio tech and they said the temp to operate is 41 degrees F. As long as temps don't go below -4 degrees F your tv should be ok. But if you are going to turn it on the temp needs to be no lower than 41 degrees F. I would let the room and tv warm up to at least 65 to 70 before I would turn it on.

It shouldn't have any bad effects on the display. When LCD panels get cold they may exhibit slow response time, like trails or a persistent display when action is moving. As long as you don't experience SUDDEN temperature changes you should be OK

Simple question, so far no answer... which of the modern tv types is/are safe to leave in a frozen cottage over winter??

None for sure, but the LCD tv's will be surely destroyed. Some plasma might resist , but it's really iffy - older ones appear to be more resistant from this point of view because of their thicker glass panels.

Flat screen tv winter storage


Your TV will be fine as long as it is kept at room temperature indoors and not inside a shed or similar outbuilding. Much warmer in a house, probably near freezing in a wooden shed.

Hope this helps you (:-)

Can i put a lcd or plasma tv in an unheated garage?

would not recommend. feel the heat coming off the screen when it is running, and take notice of how fast it heats up. Any rapid change in temperature can have a devistating effect on glass. That is a pretty expensive unit to take a chance with especially since the panel cost almost as much as the set to replace.
