Sony says that they are forced to recall approximately 1.6 million Bravia LCD-TVs due to overheating and melting components. The TVs subject to recall are from the 2007 and 2008 line-ups.

Update: Sony says that it is not a "full recall". If concerned people need to contact Sony for a on-site examination but buyers will not have to return their TVs to Sony.

2011 has not been a good year for Sony; first the PlayStation hacking scandal and now this. Sony is forced to recall 1.6 million LCD-TVs from the 2007 and 2008 Bravia line-up.

11 incidents have taken place in Japan after faulty components have overheated or melted, making the TVs emit smoke. There have been no reports of injuries to humans but the faulty components may cause TVs to ignite, Sony says. No reports from outside Japan have been registered but Sony is recalling TVs on a global basis.

The TVs subject to recall are from the 2007 and 2008 line-up and have been sold in Europe, USA and Japan. The affected models are: KDL-40D3400, KDL-40D3500, KDL-40D3550, KDL-40D3660, KDL-40V3000, KDL-40W3000, KDL-40X3000 and KDL-40X3500. Please note that Sony is recalling 40-inch models.

Sony advises buyers with these models to contact their nearest Sony Center for a free inspection or repair. Sony will also issue further information in local areas.
