Can an LCD tv be kept in the garage without damage?
I plan to get an LCD tv that would be housed in the garage for my husband to watch while he is working outside. Will the temperature changes, hot or cold, affect the tv? Is it feasible to keep the tv in the garage without damaging it?

Re: Can an LCD tv be kept in the garage without damage?
Well, It depends on the conditions of where you live.
Too much dust and moisture will cause a lot of problems. Getting too cold will cause moisture to condense. Getting too hot will cause parts inside not to cool off properly. The TV should be ok as long as you keep it in a cool, dry place.

There are two problems with leaving a TV out in the cold:
1. If the TV was used outside it will be warmer than the air temperature. This causes moisture from the air to condense on the warm/hot surfaces of the TV - including the internal components. Water conducts electricity so if the TV is switched on and there is water (condensation) on the internal components, it's more than likely that something will short and cause serious damage to the TV.
2. Some components inside a TV are very sensitive to sudden dramatic changes in temperature. If a TV is very cold and you switch it on, the sudden increase in temperature of electricity flowing through cold components can damage them.
Sudden dramatic increases or decreases in temperature damage many materials. If you take a glass dish from the freezer and immerse it in hot water, it will probably fracture and break. If you allow the glass to warm up slowly, it doesn't break. This is exactly what happens to components in a TV if they are very cold and you switch the TV on.
When buying a new TV or any electrical appliance, it is always good practice to take it out of the box and allow it to reach room temperature before installing it.
It will never survive the hostile outside environment.And when the TV does break, the service tech will be able to see what caused the TV’s failure.
Mainly, if you mount any residential TV outside, the warranty is void with any manufacture even if you have an extended warranty.
An alternative would be to use an LCD TV and purchase a quality LCD enclosure.The LCD enclosure will have a cooling and heating function for the TV, and will protect it from the hostile outside environment.You will still void you warranty mounting the TV outside even though it is in an enclosure.
You can do a search on LCD enclosures to find out pricing and more information.

Hi there, my husband fix the problem. My small son had changed the settings for the HDMI. My husband switched the tv to DVD mode started a dvd & changed all the settings back. After changing all the settings he also reboothed the setbox machine.
I don't know if I solved the problem. I find though if I turn the TV off and unplug it and then plug back in when I want to watch it - it works. I don't know why but it does. My remote still does not connect to the LCD but I have cable HDTV so chanel changes work from that control.
I am pretty ********** that it is only a year old and this has happened but what can you do? We live in a disposable world.
I was trying to get to your Premium assistance Plan from where I wrote my issue but I don't know where to pay or what to do on your site it keeps taking me all over.
