I have a new TEAC 22" LCD TV that can operate both on main power and 12v DC.
Today, I read the following:
Many LCD TV's utilise a 12volt plug pack to run them from the mains (230v AC) supply.
Therefore it would appear that this should allow you to connect the set directly to your vehicle's 12v system.
However, your vehicle's system will fluctuate from 11v to 14.5v during normal use.
Most TVs are not designed to cope with these voltage fluctuations.
Whilst initially the set may work correctly, in many cases gradual damage is occurring such as burnt out screen pixels etc.
Anyone know how valid and/or critical this issue would be? I'd hate to damage and/or destroy a brand new LCD TV!
