Sony New Zealand has sent out a press release advising that a problem has been found with some models from an early production run of Bravia and Grand Wega televisions may be unable to be switched off by remote, or input mode unable to be changed by remote, after 1200 hours of use.

This would only occur if the television had never been switched off at the wall during this period and can be fixed by a software upgrade.

The models that could be affected are Grand WEGA KFE42A10 & KFE50A10, and BRAVIA KLVV26A10, KLVV32A10 & KLVV40A10.

Check out more instructions at Sony Asia Pacific Support Site if you have one of these models.

Who would have ever thought you'd need a firmware update for a TV! :-)

"Won"?

I bought a JVC 32" Widescreen, the first widescreen in New Zealand, 6 or 7 years ago... It's time to change, and the Bravia, well, looking at it today, it is incredible picture...
