Sony Colour Cathod Ray Tube (CRT) Televisions Sets recall

Notice and request to our customers using colour CRT TV

In Sony colour CRT TVs manufactured before the end of 1990, a particular inner component has been found in some cases to suffer age deterioration following very long term usage and thus overheat. This overheating may, in rare cases, cause the component to catch fire and result in a burn to the TV set, and possible damage to surrounding property.

In light of the above, we would like to ask you to stop using the more than 20 year old TV models in the attached list. [see below]

If you have questions we advise you to contact the Sony Customer Information Center in your country.

To dispose of a colour CRT TV covered by this notice, please take it to an appropriate collection point for the recycling of electrical equipment. For more detailed information, please contact your household waste disposal service. If you are purchasing a replacement TV, your retailer may take the old CRT TV for appropriate recycling and disposal - in that case please contact your retailer for further details.
