Sony recalls 440,000 Vaio laptops – only caused “minor” burns


Sony Engineering review meeting

Sony is recalling 440,000 Vaio laptop computers worldwide because of wiring faults that could cause overheating. Sony said wires have been put in the wrong position near the hinge, while a flaw in the circuit board that controls the screen also may cause overheating…

Sony has received 209 reports of overheating worldwide, including seven incidents where people received minor burns, Associated Press reported.
