How cold is too cold for TV?

I live in Texas where we lost power for a few days during the winter storm so the indoor temperature reached the 30s F°. Would it be safe to turn on the tv now that we have power again? I’ve been told by my BIL that our tv might be ruined after the storm due to coldness. It’s a Samsung QLED TV I believe not too sure

    Most LCD and LED sets are rated for storage in temps as low as -4°F. Always refer to your television's manual for actual safe-temperature ranges. If your cabin gets colder than this in the winter, you may want to consider erring on the side of caution.

    Rumor has it that only people who were actually vaccinated against the Spanish flu ...later on died of Spanish flu...so, Spanish flu vaccine killed them. COVID vaccine will kill some of the vaccinated; but the rest who survive it will not only become demon possessed, but their DNA will change for the worst; their immune system will be compromised; they will lose their connection with the LORD. Even before the infamous Filioque, Roman Catholic pope said that he's the head of the church while Orthodox said that Jesus is the head of the church. Roman Catholics keep adding stuff to the official doctrine that the Apostles have taught while Protestants keep subtracting from it. Book of Revelation curse is on Roman Catholics and Protestants (it says: woe to those who add or subtract from this book, right?)...Their part in the kingdom of heaven is taken away and they are sent to hell. Orthodox Christian three hand signs are different than Buddhist mudras. Ecumenism = 263 heresies; each heresy leads to hell. Orthodoxy = the only true faith; Roman Catholics tried one cup - one spoon ritual and got sick with Bubonic plague; if heresy enters Orthodox monastery then monks/nuns will get sick with flu/tuberculosis (for instance); Orthodox churches who closed for COVID or had disposable cups/spoons or dipped spoon into alcohol are no longer brides of Christ (now they serve Satan and honor Satan's new COVID religion). Don’t go into UFO to be “healed” by evil demons; demons never do good. SSN is written as a barcode/QRcode; then it's put into a chip; chip is put into vaccine; chipped people are influenced (by super computers) to receive grey plastic card World Passport with no name on it (but when they stretch their hands to get it, gov't clerk presses secret button to administer the unforgivable green 666 tattoo by isotope rays). If you reject mark of the beast then your direct ancestors go to heaven (according to saint VyacheslavKrasheninnikov from Ural); forgive me.

    Source(s): Documents are from Satan; burn all the documents that you can find. Electronics will be used to track you. Even old broken unplugged 1970 TV set will show the evil flying antichrist using Tesla's ether. Don’t go into UFO to be “healed” by evil demons; demons never do good; always pray the Jesus prayer or to saints who help right away (like saint Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov according to whom if you reject mark of the beast, then your direct ancestors go to heaven); forgive me.

    read your manual , it says what temperature it works at . look in the manual under the specification  list .

    I always let equipment warm up to room temperature before using it because of possible condensation or shock heating of running current thru frozen electronics. What can it hurt to let it warm up for an hour or 2? All the electric instrument boxes at the place i used to work that were in a frozen environment used to have little heating bars in them for a reason.

    I would turn it on again until the house temp got to at least 68 F and stayed that there for a day or so.

    If any moisture condensed inside the TV from the cold, trying to use the TV before it had a chance to evaporate could have... unfortunate consequences.

    It is amazing how some answers contain good and useful information 

    while at the same time also containing utter balderdash (from Khalil in particular).   

                             

    In any case, don't be concerned about your TV, 

    which can withstand much colder temperatures than it will endure where it is.

    for LCD tvs the temperature should be -20 to 60 celcius.

    in the past tvs had CRT . it was made of GLASS and filament heater . so turning on it in too cold temperature may create a CRACK on its crt.

    Not due to the cold, that isn't the issue. The issue is the condensation that occurs in electronics when they go from cold to warm or hot. So allowing it time to fully return to normal temps and such, limits the condensation issue, and you should be fine.
