Sony (Stuttgart: 853687 - news) is recalling 1.6 million television sets after faulty parts caused a number to emit smoke and start melting.
The technology firm said eight of its popular Bravia range of LCD TVs are subject to an "inspection and rework programme", following incidents reported in Japan (EUREX: FMJP.EX - news) .
Sony said a limited number of the TVs (Taiwan OTC: 8264.TWO - news) might contain a component that could overheat and ignite inside the set, causing the upper casing to melt.
"To date, there have been no reports of any damage to other property or physical injuries," the company added.
The affected televisions were manufactured in 2007 and 2008 and were mostly sold in Europe (Chicago Options: ^REURUSD - news) and the US.
The model numbers are: KDL-40D3400, KDL-40D3500, KDL-40D3550, KDL-40D3660, KDL-40V3000, KDL-40W3000, KDL-40X3000 and KDL-40X3500.
Sony advises people who own one of these sets to take it to their nearest Sony service centre for a free inspection and, if necessary, a free repair.
Owners of Sony TVs can check the model number of their set by looking at the label on the back.
"If you own one of the products mentioned above and if you notice any abnormality (e.g. unusual noise, unusual smell or smoking), please turn it off immediately, unplug the power cable, stop using the TV, and contact us," Sony said.
"We have confirmed that this symptom does not occur when power is switched off."
It added: "In the unlikely event that you are affected by the issues above, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause."

Have you been secretly 'sniped'?

Yahoo! Tech TalkBy Raymond Lau | Yahoo! Tech Talk – 5 hours ago

The next time you're in the queue for bubble tea or catching a quick nap on the MRT, beware: someone might be secretly snapping a photograph of you.

We're not talking about regular street photography here – these self-named "snipers" have a less artistic intention in mind. Using their smartphone cameras or any number of devices with in-built cameras, they sneakily snap shots of girls in shorts, skirts, low-cut tops or women in general whom they deem attractive, and post them on a popular online forum for others to leer at.

The comments accompanying the pictures reveal the snipers' ulterior motives. The woman in the top image, for instance was described as "dua liap", a Hokkien term which references an ample bosom.

Another user posted a picture of a woman's buttocks and asked other forum members if they wanted to pinch it.

A large number of the photos are outright indecent. These include upskirt shots and shots of people bathing or undressing in a changing room.

The thread in particular has been in existence since 16 December 2009. At the time of writing, the thread has 555 pages and a total of 8,321 posts.

A 30-year-old secretary who found out from her friends that she was a victim of "sniping" was shocked when she saw her own photo on the forum.

"I wasn't even wearing anything revealing. I never thought there are such people around," she said, adding that the picture was taken when she was on her way to work.

Other people Yahoo! Singapore spoke to also expressed their disapproval and disgust.

26-year-old university student Mr Kwok said, "It's still an invasion of privacy. Not to mention you don't know where the pictures are going to be disseminated or what will be said about them."

A media executive and amateur photographer, who prefers to remain anonymous, said, "Normally in street photography if you want to take a specific person you ask for his or her permission. It's quite rude to do this, especially for this sort of purpose."

This is also a cause for concern among parents.

Mdm Tan, a mother of a 12-year-old daughter, said, "You start to wonder about your children's attire, and whether it's attracting unwanted attention."

So if you're out and about in public areas, be mindful of the people around you to avoid falling prey to these snipers. You never know when or where it can happen.

Pernikahan Mayangsari Bakal Digugat Halimah!

KapanlagiOleh Editor, Selebriti | Kapanlagi – 8 jam yang lalu


Artis penyanyi Mayangsari sepertinya belum benar-benar bisa bernafas dengan lega. Pasalnya, serangan mendadak bakal segera dilancarkan oleh kubu Halimah Agustina Kamil. Halimah akan melakukan permohonan untuk membatalkan pernikahan diva asal Purwokerto itu dengan Bambang Trihatmodjo. Sebelumnya Mayang dan Bambang Tri memang sudah meresmikan pernikahan keduanya di Kantor Urusan Agama Kebayoran Lama.
Namun itu akan dilakukan jika permohonan judicial review terhadap UU Perkawinan yang sudah didaftarkan oleh Halimah ke Mahkamah Konstitusi diterima. Sebelumnya, melalui kuasa hukumnya, Halimah sudah mengajukan judicial review UU perkawinan tahun 1974 pasal F.
"Ada motivasi di balik semua ini. Hati yang paling dalam dari kita adalah untuk melakukan sesuatu perjuangan di dalam kasus beliau. Saya setuju dengan ibu Halimah menginginkan sesuatu yang positif dari apa yang kita ajukan. Positif itu adalah apabila kita memenangkan permohonannya maka pernikahan pak Bambang dan siapa itu "Mayangsari" akan dibatalkan," ujar kuasa hukum Halimah, Chairunnisa Jafizham, SH ditemui saat jumpa pers di Bisnis Centre, Hotel Nikko, Jakarta, Selasa (11/10).
Saat ini pihak Halimah memang sudah menjalani persidangan di Mahkamah Konstitusi. Namun, dalam perkembangannya sendiri masih dilakukan pemeriksaan terhadap para saksi ahli. Dalam beberapa kali persidangan, Hakim Mahkamah Konstitusi akan memberikan keputusan. Apakah Halimah optimis akan menang?
"Kalkulasi terhadap permohonan, saya sebagai pemohon tentunya tidak bisa bilang pesimis tentunya harus optimis apa yang kita perjuangkan akan berhasil. Kalau pesimis buat apa saya berjuang dari awal," ujar Chairunnisa.
Sebelumnya dalam beberapa kali persidangan, beberapa saksi ahli yang ikut dihadirkan antara lain Prof. Bismar Siregar, Marzuki Darusman, DR.Makariwibisono (direktur HAM PBB), Ibu Shinta Nuryah Abdurrahman Wahid, dan Prof. DR. Musdah Mulya.
"Alhamdulillah dari semua saksi yang kami ajukan, saya beranggapan dan berpikir semuanya mendukung permohonan kami," pungkasnya.[initial]
