Maybe. Issue seems to be to let it warm up to room temp BEFORE turning it on. Here's one google response: Contrary to popular belief, LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) Technology does not involve any sort of liquid whatsoever. LCD panels use tiny microchips that "twist" open to allow light to pass through the display to your eyes. There is no risk of these Crystal "twisters" to freeze. They can get cold, and their "twisting" can be reduced however, but that's about it. I do suggest allow the tv to warm up before use. The answer to your questions would be like asking if it is ok to leave a calculator in a cabin for the winter. Calculators use the same "LCD" technology, and of course, I'm sure the one you left at the cabin last year still works just fine. No worries. Dan 15 Years Home theatre/Tv sales Management
On a side note, keep in mind, lcd technology has been around for over 50 years (invented by sharp) and the technology is used everywhere, like your car dashboard, boeing 747 airplane control panels, laptops. All these items can and will be exposed to freezing temperatures at some time in their lives, and they are still "Living"

there is some point below -20 where they might get damaged but then it depends on the manufacturer. one word i have seen for instance in my manual for my 60" in the rv is to let the tv aclimate itself to the temp of the room above +40 before turning it on. other than that nothing. but then its the same thing for any electronics out there, starting them when the temp is below freezing could in a sense cause moisture to develope on sensitive electronics and therefore short them out, this can mean any thing in an rv like a microwave, converter, power board on fridges and heaters, to the most simple things like radios and such.  george
