Default Cold weather and Plasma TV's

We're having a fish fry/ UFC fight tomorrow at my house. I want to bring my 50" plasma tv out into the garage. The weather is supposed to get down to around 40 degrees tomorrow night. Do you think those temps could harm my TV?
My garage is partially insulated, and we'll have some space heaters going for most of the night. But I guess after everyone goes home and we shut the place down, that'll include the space heaters too.
Do you think 40 degree weather could hurt it?

Well, I just got off the phone with Samsung. The rep told me my TV's operating temps where 32 to 104 degrees. So I guess I'll be ok.
I was mostly concerned about the the warm plasma screen and the cold weather creating condensation. Man, I'm nervous. The show must go on I guess. Crossing me fingers.

Do you have a dehumidifier? If so run it. I'm no expert but I would make sure it's good and dry.

The though of moving a 50" plasma around... especially into a garage... lots of sharp stuff... and dust... makes me nervous.

Condensation happens the other way around. If the plasma was cold and the room was warm & humid that is when you would get condensation.

In other words, it is when you moved the plasma back into the warm house with a cold plasma that you need to worry the most. Just make sure you do not even plug it in for a few hours after you bring it back into the house until the internal plasma temp is the same as the room temp.
