We bought a TV to use outside on our lot in Arizona. When we go north for the summer can we leave it stored in our shed? It will get REALLY hot. Not sure if heat will hurt the TV

As long as it’s unplugged and off it should be fine. When it was new it was in the back of a sealed up truck in the same conditions. Same for extreme cold ..

I believe it will be fine but most manufacturers list online operating temperature max and minimum as well as storage max and minimum.

You have a gas tank and battery on your TV? Wow!

We leave our TV's and satellite receiver in the camper during hot Texas summers but bring their remotes into the house. Remote controls were failing after a few years of excessive heat. Just removing the batteries didn't save them.

just don't let it get too cold so you don't freeze the liquid crystal display...

J/K!!!!

I have one poor TV that gets treated horribly, and the dang thing just keeps on going. Almost hate to get rid of it!
