Hi, just wondered whether people take their tv out of their van when freezing temperatures are forecast? Thanks.

The LCD might get slow if it's really cold. So the image might go blurry. I don't think you're supposed to use them below 0C. But for storage, it's fine and won't do any damage.

What about the dash LCD then. That would mean you couldn't use any modern vehicle below zero. :LOL:

In my brush with electronics, we’ve mostly kept things cool. Usually in expensive AC rooms. And semiconductors have wide operating ranges starting way below 0deg C 🤔

Here’s an LCD specific temp range
In most applications, a temperature range of -40oc to +85oc is sufficient

This source, specific to TVs, says don't use below 0C:

It's kind of irrelevant anyway. You aren't going to be watching TV if it's still below freezing inside the van.
