LCD TV and cold weather

7 posts in this topic

I wanted to update my TV to LCD in my fish house, but I don't know how they are going to stand up to the cold weather and condensation. Anybody out there have any experience with this?

I put one of the under the cabnet LCD TV's in my fishhouse last hear and had no problems with freezing or condensation. Works great.

I've had my 26" Sony LCD in the Fish house a few times but I was always leery of what freezing temps would do so I never left it with out the heat on.

Mine is only a 9" but I have left it out in -25 degree cold with no problems. I just warm the house up good before turning it on.

I agree with eyebjim. My GPS has the LCD screen and so do some of the new flashers and fishfinders. As long as you warm them up first they are fine. I know on my GPS they recommend using the backlight to heat it up quicker until the screen is warm.

I've never experienced any problems with it getting condensation, but it would be sealed. Tv's might be a little different, but if they were left in the fishhouse then they should warm up slow enough that it won't cause problems.

there are different types of lcd's. lowrance h2o C and the gps/sonar combos are a tft lcd which can take the cold. A standard lcd at some point can be affected. I have seen tft lcd tv's for sale. good luck

The manual for my 522 and 334 warn about excessively cold temps, like below zero. Check the manual.

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light. 
    • I did.  Political.
