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 website 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.

actually the change in sony probably has more to do with the fact that now an american runs sony

they didnt seem to have all these public issues like DRM rootkits and such while they had a japanese person running the show.

Enough with the America-bashing... the rootkit debacle was started by Sony-BMG (a German division) and created by First4Internet (a British company). Explain how that's America's fault.

Stringer hasn't been there long enough to account for all the problems, although being a "media" guy seems to fit the above poster's description (Sony as a media company not an electronics company anymore). Sony has had drastic quality issues for years under Nobuyuki Idei.
