Sony Bravia TV Recall

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

Sony has announced that a line of their BRAVIA TVs have been causing complications for customers.  The units are heating up aggressivvely which can potentially lead to the TV burnign out, and creating damage to the exterior of the TV or any cabinetry they are rested in.  The following was released by Sony.

It has come to our attention through reports in Japan that in rare cases a particular component incorporated in certain models of 40″ BRAVIA LCD HDTV [Model Nos. KDL-40V3000, KDL-40VL130, KDL-40W3000, KDL-40WL135, KDL-40XBR4, and KDL-40XBR5] was damaged and as a result, may overheat and at times ignite inside of the television. This could possibly result in a hole at a part of the cabinet ceiling. We have no reports of any resulting damages to other property or bodily injuries.

We know our customers choose Sony based in large part to the trust associated with our brand and the products and services we so strongly stand behind. We will not take your trust for granted and are committed to addressing this issue proactively.


If you purchased any of the above models, please contact Sony directly at 888-868-7389 to get it taken care of immediately.
