operating temp for a TV
I have my classic 1987 Mits 20in TV stored in my rec room which is unheated. I just went to turn it on for the first time in a year and nada nothing is coming on not even the channel indicator light.
I am wondering if it is too cold in the unheated room, it is maybe 45-50.
I could move it up to the house and warm it up and see if it works but just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on the issue.
ISCET CET, FCC CTT, USITT
Under normal conditions, the set is in 100% operating capability - NO, it doesn't matter, a temperature of 45-50 degrees would be well within it's operating range and the set SHOULD play just fine.
That being said, a bad connection or cold solder joint, cracked PC board, bad switch, etc, could cause it to be temperature sensitive and not work in a 45-50 degree environment.
The only way to know will be to move it to a room temperature environment, allow time for it to "normalize" and give it a try.
