Question about lcd tv's

8 posts in this topic

Have a buddy that want to put LCD tv in his ice house but asked if he could leave tv in house while it was parked in his driveway and if it would effect the tv..he talked to best buy and they had no clue..I told him that i wouldnt leave it in there when not in use and freezing out...but he was wondering if there would be damage done to it??

I have a under cabinet lcd tv in my house. Had out in the house all winter last year with no problems. When it was really cold it took a while to warm up before the screen would turn on. As soon as it warmed up it was fine.

I would think it will be fine. I also used to think this way about various things. But, in this part of the world things are alwasy being delivered by truck and not many are climate controlled, so I am sure they see cold temps.

I would let it warm up to room temp before using, and you should be good to go.

Yep. When the fish house begins to warm up condensation will form on the TV pretty heavy. Let it get up to temperature and dry out before turning it on. This could cause corrosion issues down the road if this is repeated often, so that is also something to consider.

I think it has a lot to do with the moisture inside of the fish house when it cools down after you leave....at least it did in my house. A byproduct of burning propane is moisture and is probably the difference between the air inside of a car and a fish house. That would be my guess. My TV would frost right up after I got out to the fish house and fired up the furnace. It'd then thaw leaving quite a bit of moisture on the outside and most likely inside of it. I didn't leave it in the house very often anyway.

Another point is leaving anything in your house whether on the lake or in the driveway is just asking someone to break in to steal it. I wouldn't leave it in the house when not in use regardless, just not worth the risk any more...too many people who think they can just take anything.

No kidding. Luckily I had taken pretty much everything out of my house when it was broken into last year. mad

    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy. 
    • There sure isn't any rhyme or reason to the costs. I think you stand a lot better chance for a good price in the summer though when you can take your house to a job site and they don't have set up and clean up costs involved. 
    • If you use the vinyl kind it coils horribly and if you use the braided types your trebles get stuck in it. I'm not smart enough to do it but I wish some company could figure it out.  
    • So you are saying we all should have voted for a corrupt Clinton over the other candidates? Or should we go back and forth and point out the failings of Democratic states and go round and round? I voted for Johnson, both parties are useless to me but if you want to put on a blindfold and cry about the other party you go right ahead. It's obvious you can't look at any issue without those tinted political glasses on, I'm sure JV would be happy to fire up a tax based argument based on political leanings.
    • Ahhh. Another shiatty weekend for putzbutton.   "We talked about sore winners in the earlier segment. We really didn’t lose. This was sort of a successful failure,” radio host Mark Thompson said on MSNBC Saturday.   "A successful failure"   See !!   There is a silver lining for you libbers...      
    • Sounds reasonable.  We were just under that at a guy up north west of the metro and we had a 16 footer.  Called about 10-15 places and that was the low side of average.  
    • the guy that smoked it is a pro so I would think he did all the precautions needed. I will see him again this summer and ask him.  
    • Didn't catch the game last night but Parise hasn't looked like himself for sure. With some of the younger guys stepping up and Staal it hasn't hurt us nearly as bad as past years but it would sure be nice to see him get healthy. You kind of knew his contract was going to hurt at some point, hopefully it doesn't start this soon.
