About 400,000 Bravia TVs are affected by the recall
If you start me up; If you start me up I'll never stop
If you bought a Sony Bravia LCD or rear-projection screen TV within the past year, you may have a little bit of a problem on your hands. Roughly 400,000 of the TVs which were sold in North America, South America and Asia cannot be turned off or come of out standby mode once they pass 1,200 hours of use.
According to a Sony, users of affected Bravia models can go to its
where they will find instructions on how to have materials sent to them to update their TVs. Owners of Grand Wega models must use that same website to schedule a Sony authorized technician to come to their home to perform the update (all on Sony's dime of course).
Sony is providing the software update at no charge to owners of affected televisions through March 1, 2008. Terms of Sony's limited warranty otherwise continue to apply. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you and will continue to provide superior customer service for Sony televisions.

My parents have been waiting for the 40" Bravia to come into our store here for the last couple weeks so they could buy it. It's an awesome looking TV, one of the best looking LCD TV's I've seen. Colors are great, might have to look at something else but it looks like the problem with them is only minor.
Might have to wait for new models that don't have the problem.
