Sony offers to check 'smoking' TV models
Sony KDL-40V3000 TV Sony said a faulty component could cause some Bravia
models to overheat

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
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.

You get a choice between Niquitin lozenges or Nicorette spray.
