Sony to recall 1.6 million Bravia HDTVs due to possibility of fire.

October 12, Ars Technica – (International)

Sony has begun recalling 1.6 million Bravia HDTVs due to a faulty component in the backlight systems. A Sony spokesperson told Bloomberg the recall was occasioned by 11 incidents of smoking or burning TVs in Japan since 2008, the most recent of which was reported in September. Although the overheating TVs appear to be confined to Japan so far, the electronics giant plans to broaden the recall to include Europe and the United States. After contacting Sony, owners of the affected Bravia models will be visited by repair technicians. If the TV has the faulty transformer identified as the cause of the issue, it will be repaired.
