Sony Issues Quasi-Recall of LCD HDTVs


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.
