Sanyo Recalls TVs Made In Shanghai

Due to a sub-standard insulation function, Shanghai Suoguang Visual Products Company Ltd, Sony's joint venture in China, has recently submitted a report to the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of China to recall 7,038 Sony-branded LCD TVs made between December 2010 and March 2011 in Shanghai.

The insulation function of the 7,038 TVs, specifically the models KDL-40CX520 and KDL-46CX520, reportedly failed to meet Sony's design requirement in extreme conditions like high temperature, high humidity and prolonged use. Some users may feel minor tingling when touching the metal parts of the products or the metal parts of external devices connected to the products.

Shanghai Suoguang said that it will implement free-of-charge examinations and maintenance repairs to the TVs covered in the recall range.
