In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, JVC Americas Corp. of Wayne, NJ, U.S. has recalled 26,500 rear-projection televisions.

Consumers were advised to stop using the recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. An internal electrical connection can cause electrical arcing, charring or smoking inside the television, which pose a fire risk to consumers. JVC has received two reports of incidents, including one case of melted television parts and one case of a minor television fire. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled 52-in and 61-in televisions were manufactured in Mexico between May 2004 and November 2004 and sold at consumer electronic stores throughout the U.S. from July 2004 through January 2005.

The recalled televisions have the following model and serial numbers:

  • HD-52Z575: 10980014 through 16980772
  • HD-52Z575: 16986471 through 16989999
  • HD-52Z585: 10980031 through 16981502
  • HD-61Z575: 10980031 through 16982712
  • HD-61Z585: 10980031 through 16980942

    To remedy the problem, JVC will schedule a free in-home service for those consumers with recalled televisions. The manufacturer is contacting registered consumers directly via regular mail and e-mail.
