Yes, Most electronic equipment can survive as low as -25 Centigrades, while discrete chips can survive even -40 Centigrades.

Yes they can. I asked the manufacturers: - LG, Panasonic, Sony and Samsung.  Here are the emails I received from the experts: 

  • The storage temperature for these units is -20 to 60 degrees Celsius. Regards David Herbert LG Canada 
  • Please be advised that the recommended storage temperature should be between -20 Celsius and +60 Celsius. However,thetelevision cannot be plugged in until the television's internal temperature is 0-40 degrees Celsius. Please ensure that you unplug the television prior to storing it, and that the television is well warmed-up before plugging it in after the storage period. Regards, Panasonic Canada Inc. - Customer Care Centre - bg

  • Thank you for submitting your inquiry to Samsung.For all 3 different technologies, LCD, DLP or PLASMA, the manufacturer recommends a storage temperature (TV off mode) between -4oF to 113oF (-20oC to 45oC). Same storage temperatures for all. We also recommend that regardless of what type you buy, that you unplug the TV from the wall socket when not in use for a very long period and to let TV warm up by just plugging it for 12 hours before operating the next time. - Samsung Limitless Support

  • I'm glad to provide you the information regarding the operating temperature and storage temperature of the Sony TV. The television can be placed in storage with environmental temperatures between -4 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit (F) and 20-90% Relative Humidity (RH). The recommended temperature for proper operation is between 41°F to 96°F. Proper operation outside of this temperature range cannot be guaranteed. Thank you for your time. Sony of Canada, Ltd.

Is installing a plasma TV a do it yourself project or should I make sure

The trick to it is to make sure it's mounted properly so it's probably best to have a professional do it. If you buy one from somewhere like Best Buy they may do free installation or for a nominal fee.
