Sony Australia recently learnt that four of its TV models require a minor software upgrade. Affected models will require the upgrade once the TV has been viewed for more than 1,200 hours cumulatively.

Affected models display the following symptoms:

  • The TV can not be switched off when the power is in "on" mode, and cannot be switched on when in "stand by" mode.
  • It is not possible to change the input mode.

In Australia, the following models and serial numbers are affected:

  • KLV-V26A10 (Serial number 7000001 - 7002040)
  • KLV-V32A10 (Serial number 7000001 - 7002899)
  • KLV-V40A10 (Serial number 7000001 - 7006000)
  • KF-E42A10 (Serial number 2000001 - 2000667)

To remedy this situation, Sony is offering a software update to owners of the affected units. Please check the model and serial number of your TV. If your TV is affected, kindly call our Customer Contact Centre to have arrangements made for the software update to be performed.
