Consumer electronics manufacturer Sony Corp. said on Friday it would recall 20,000 Vaio desktop personal computers sold in Japan between September 2002 and January 2003 to replace defective power supply parts.
This is in addition to 20,000 Vaio PCs recalled in the U.S. and Canada last December due to a similar problem, a Sony spokesman said.
A glitch in power supply parts used in three types of upscale Vaio desktop computers -- the PCV-RZ50, RZ60, and RZ70P -- was found to damage the power units and prevent the computers from being switched on, the spokesman said.
On Wednesday, Sony said it would recall some of its Cyber-shot digital cameras. (Reuters)
