How are Samsung plasma TVs affected by temperature and sunlight?

Last Update date : 2017.02.17



Temperature ranges at which to use and store a Samsung plasma TV


Samsung plasma TVs have an operating temperature range of 50° F to 104° F (10° C to 40° C). Temperatures outside the listed ranges may negatively affect the operation and lifespan of your TV. We do not advise installing your TVs where temperatures outside of the operating range may be a concern because tempuratures outside of this range (50° F to 104° F) can damage the TV and prevent normal operation.


Samsung plasma TVs can be stored at temperatures ranging from -4 °F to 113 °F (-20 °C to 45 °C). Storing a Samsung plasma TV in an environment with temperatures outside this temperature range can damage the TV even if it's not in use.


Samsung plasma TVs are not affected by sunlight


Samsung plasma TVs are not affected by sunlight, although placing the TV in direct sunlight may cause glare on the screen, making it harder to view content on it. The brighter the ambient light in the enviornment in which the TV is located, the harder it will be for you to distinguish colours and brightness levels produced by the TV's panel. Although direct sunlight may not affect the TV a side effect of this placement may be increased temperature and, as mentioned above, high temperatures can damage the TV.
