Notice of Request to stop using Overseas Models of Sony CRT Color TVs manufactured before the end of 1990
June 10, 2010

Thank you for your continued interest in Sony products.

In Sony CRT color TVs manufactured before the end of 1990, a particular internal 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 TV set, and at times damage to surrounding property.

In light of the above, we would like to ask you to stop using Sony CRT color TVs manufactured before the end of 1990.
