Sony recalls 440,000 Sony Vaio laptops over manufacturer carelessness

Sony Corp has been forced to recall massive amounts of its sold laptops dubbed Sony Vaio.

The laptops were diagnosed by experts as faulty due to an overheating problem which has become a source of extreme customer dissonance. Consumers and buyers of the Sony Viao laptop are up in arms over the substandard product.

Sony Corp is now recalling a total of 440,000 Vaio laptop computers worldwide because of wiring faults that could cause overheating. The company had to recall due to concerns about 19 Vaio models in the TZ series manufactured between May 2007 and July 2008. However this recall hardly affects the British market or the models sold in the UK. Sony officials have pointed out that the wires have been put in the wrong position near the hinge. The experts have also explained that there is a flaw in the circuit board that controls the screen which may cause overheating.

Sony corp. has admitted to consumer dissonance that the faults have become a nuisance and that that a number of people had been burnt by this faulty connection on the Sony Vaio laptop. Sony marketing department is projecting that the company sold 373,000 Vaio laptops worldwide in some 48 countries. This tally includes 67,000 Sony Vaio’s which were sold in Japan. This is a disgrace and a blow to such a reputed company which has enjoyed immense consumer confidence in its products. Sony is worried how about how it will do away with the intense consumer dissonance and make a comeback.
