Sony recalls 440,000 VAIO TZ notebooks

Posted on Thursday, September 04 2008 @ 17:17:07 CEST by


Sony announced a recall of 440,000 overheating VAIO notebooks. The recall concerns 19 VAIO TZ series models manufactured between May 2007 and July 2008, the electronics giant says these ultraportable notebooks have a flaw in a display controller and irregularly positioned wires that may cause the system to overheat.
Sony said wires have been put in the wrong position near the hinge, while a flaw in the circuit board that controls the screen also may cause overheating.

The company said that a number of people had been burnt by the fault.

According to the company 373,000 of the Vaio laptops were sold worldwide in some 48 countries, with 67,000 sold in Japan.
Sony received more than 200 complaints of overheating notebooks but assures there's no risk of serious injury or fire.
