Sony Recalls Vaio Laptops

September 6, 2008

Well, it has been a while since there was a significant laptop recall, but you knew it would happen again.

Sony has issued a voluntary recall of 438,000 Vaio laptop computer due to the possibility of overheating that could potentially burn the user.

According to the statement by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Sony gotten 15 reports of laptops overheating and one of those resulted in the owner receiving a minor burn.  Here are the Sony Vaio laptops included in the voluntary recall:

  • VGN-TZ100
  • VGN-TZ200
  • VGN-TZ300
  • VGN-TZ2000

The laptops can possibly short circuit and overheat due to what the CPSC states is an “irregularly positioned wires near the computer’s hinge and/or dislodged screw inside the hinge”.

Shares of Sony are down about 30 percent this year, so this information probably will not help.  If you have one of these laptops, contact Sony toll-free at (888) 526-6219 anytime, or visit Sony’s Web site.
