Sony Issues Quasi-Recall of LCD HDTVs

Sony had some troubling reports come in about several of the company's BRAVIA LCD HDTVs. These reports detail cases of the television not only failing, but almost self-destructing.

Sony_make_believe_Logo.jpgSony has reported that the company has received reports from Japan that several models of 40-inch BRAVIA LCD HDTVs may have a defective component. The affected models are the KDL-40V3000, KDL-40VL130, KDL-40W3000, KDL-40WL135, KDL-40XBR4, and KDL-40XBR5.

According to these reports, a particular component in these models may have been damaged. This component, if damaged, can overheat and actually ignite the television, creating a hole in the television cabinet.

Because of this, Sony has offered all owners of the affected models a free evaluation of the product. A service representative will actually visit and evaluate your television, repairing it if need be. All free of charge. That’s a pretty smart move on Sony’s part.
