Sony recently revealed that about 400,000 Bravia LCD and rear-projection televisions released last year were installed with faulty software.
“A Sony spokeswoman said that after 1,200 hours of use the TVs may not be able to be turned off or switched out of stand-by-mode.”
The faulty televisions were sold in areas like the U.S. Japan, China, and South America.
Fortunately, customers who are hooked up to cable can receive an updated version of the software automatically. However, those receiving analog signals must be upgraded in person.
