Have seen some of the LCD screens on cell phones crack from being left out in car.
Until this year, we had never had a problem with our TV's or computer monitors. Left it in storage compound for the last 6 years in Manitoba, where temperatures are routinely in -20 to -30 range for months. We made the trip from Manitoba to south Texas (almost 2000 miles straight south) in four days. When we turned the TV on, on day 5; there were several, blue, vertical streaks coming down from the top edge of the screen. Looks like blue icicles. I believe that this was due to the rapid change in temperature which caused condensation
to leak between the front skin and the LED panel. The "icicle effect" only sometimes interferes with our TV viewing, so we won't replace it until it dies.
Bottom line - Don't bring the TV from the cold into the warm, moist environment of a home. Leave it in your rig until the warmer spring weather brings it up to a reasonable temperature. I agree with one of the later posts that heat is the killer of electronics, but condensation doesn't help either.
