It's an insignificant jump on shore power, but on battery, 4 amps to 10 is. Perhaps another battery, or turn the darn thing off now and then! [emoticon]

I use it as a monitor for my laptop for work and I watch a lot of movies, tv, etc...

I turn it off when I sleep. My usage isn't going to change.

No sense having to add a battery if I can just get another tv with similar power consumption.

50" - 55" ?

What makes / models?

I haven't seen one that was less than 90, assuming such info was provided.

I don't know the size of your battery bank but to operate the 65 watt TV above for 16 hours would require a 180 AH battery.

I guess a TV pulling 65 amps is beyond HD.

Thanks for the correction.

The 55" Samsung I bought last month says 65 watts on the sticker.

Most LED TVs are easy on the electrons.

The old 50" plasma TV in our bedroom has a great picture, but it
pulls 600 watts. Yeah...

Roger,

It seems to me you have a working TV, but the speakers have failed; however, you're able to use it with headphones?

If that's correct, then a pair of desktop computer speakers that run on 12 volts seem to be a better solution than replacing your TV.

We used to have desktop speakers - amplified - and they all ran off 12volt wall warts - and I think they pulled about an amp based on what I remember on the power supplies (12volts, 1 amp) - soemthing to consider.
