    Sony is to offer free safety checks on several of its TV models after a number of sets started smoking.
    The company warned that a component used in eight different versions of its Bravia televisions may be faulty and could, in rare cases, overheat.
    However, it stopped short of issuing a full recall.
    Instead Sony said that anyone who was concerned could request an engineer come to their home for free to inspect their TV.

    The models affected are all LCDs, sold in Europe since June 2007.

    They are: KDL-40D3400, KDL-40D3500, KDL-40D3550, KDL-40D3660.

    KDL-40V3000, KDL-40W3000, KDL-40X3000, KDL-40X3500.


    All seem to be 40" flat panels??? more info at www.support.sony-europe.com
    site very busy at the moment.

    I wish.
    Hmm, saw this at lunchtime on the Yahoo news bit.

    I have a 4 year old KDL-40W3000 - typical.

    I read you had to take it to a Sony Centre - sod that.

    However, I might consider arranging an engineer visit.
