    I purchased an Hitachi 42PD3000E some weeks ago with the intention of hanging it in my new house but now my house move has been delayed by 4 months and I will have to put the plasma in storage. Thing is, the room I am storing the plasma in has vitually no heating .. but is not damp. The plasma is still boxed in it's original packaging. I'm worried that, as the temperature will drop through the Winter, it would cause damage to my plasma in some way. I've covered the box with sheeting but have left holes uncovered for ventilation. Any idea what the lowest temperature that these things can be stored under, the manual just seems to warn about high temps. Any thoughts please ?

    should not be a problem.
    before you bought it , it was just sitting in a warehouse and if it was assembled outside uk probaly came over in a boat.
    so id say dont worry. better that it dosent go from very hot to cold.(which it would do when in operation.

    Sides it will still be coverd by warranty so no worries eh!

    sounds good, thanks for that. I've only got Hitachi's 1 year warranty on the TV, half of which will be up before I get to use it :( was just getting worried. Cheers,

    All I'd add is try to keep it upright if possible.
