LED Tvs

I have just installed a new led tv in my mb. Can anyone tell me if the cold winters up here in Canada will damage the tv? thanks Mark

Operating and Storage Temperatures
LED TVs -- which, remember, are actually LCD screens [back or edge lit by LEDs] -- have a broad operating temperature range. For example, Samsung advertises an operating range between 50 and 104 degrees Fahrenheit for all its LCD screens, including those with LED backlights. LG advertises a similar range of 50 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit. The storage temperature range is even wider. While a Samsung LED TV may not operate well in temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, they can be safely stored in temperatures as cold as -4 degrees and as high as 113 degrees Fahrenheit.

This answer is from eHow.com

LED TV's operate good from about 50 to 104 degrees F. Samsung advertises they can be stored at temperatures down to -5 without any ill effects.

No Tvs are delivered shipped and stored in unheated trailers for sometimes weeks on end. Unplugged (off) Storage temps are not a issue .. Usage ? Well if you are out there at -40 and trying to watch it , then yes it will have a problem ;-)

No problem with LED in mine as to temps. But, like living on a fault line, plenty of jars/bumps on the roadways. My front TV started acting up. Screen jiggles (?) and can't see clearly. Found a good bang at a certain spot clears all up nicely. Only a matter of time before that won't continue to work!!
