Sony recalls hazardous Vaio notebooks

Sony this morning announced the recall of certain Vaio TZ series notebooks after a number of consumers reported overheating, with one even resulting in minor burns.

The notebooks, according to Sony, contain "irregularly positioned wires near the computer's hinge and/or a dislodged screw inside the hinge [that] can cause a short circuit and overheating."

Included in the recall are the Vaio VGN-TZ100, VGN-TZ200, VGN-TZ300 and VGN-TZ2000 series with 11.1" screens.

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission has advised owners of these notebooks to stop using them immediately and contact Sony for further instructions.
