    Flat panel TV's survive out in the cold? lcd or plasma

    I might be buying a tv that has been sitting in a storage unit for the past few months. Its Iowa, so its been pretty cold the past few months. I was wondering if the cold *** weather could damage the TV and if it could...if it is more likely that it did or didnt damage it. I'm looking for advice about both lcd and plasma, because I'm not sure which it is. I'm not able to test it before I buy it, so that's why I'm asking here. I'll be searching the net to see if I can find out the answer, but if anyone here know and can help me out that would be much appreciated.

    Unless the model number is on the front, I probably won't be able to find it out .


    Also will storing it laying flat really mess the tv up versus storing it upright?

    depends on flat on its face, or on its back.

    Well on its face is definately not good for the delicate pixels.... Im not sure if laying on its back is bad... but I can assure you sitting on its face with anything touching and putting pressure on the screen is bad news.

    1st, make sure its not laying down on its back or on its front. That is bad with any flat-panel tv.
    2nd, if you do end up getting it, make sure you bring it in the house and warm up to above room temp b4 even plugging it in.

    Do things right and you should be ok.

    Yea I know. I like these types of gambles a lot more than blackjack at the casino . Plus if it is broken, I'll prolly just put it on ebay.

    nah, I'm a powerseller...I'm not gonna fok my feedback up for a few hundred bucks. Besides why would someone not test a tv? Not exactly hard to test

    I would tell the guy that you want to try it out first....

    And defiantly let it warm to room temp before trying anything.....

    It's an unpaid storage unit that's up for auction. Im gonna go check it out tomorrow. Its a gamble..."buy it like you see it". Thats why I'm trying to get some opinions. Otherwise I'd test it first.

    You can store the displays horizontally or vertically as long as you prevent anything from putting pressure on the actual screen itself. Many LCD manufacturers ship the screens horizontally, but the packing material only touches the outer edges of the TV not the actual screen.
    Indeed.... I wasn't sure on the freezing point. Had a hunch it was low, but wasn't sure....
