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.
