Sony Recalls VAIO TZ Series Due to Overheating

This morning I am happy that I have a Sony VAIO FZ at home and not a VAIO TZ. Sony announced this morning that it was aware of an overheating issue with its TZ notebooks and is urging customers to bring units for repairs. According to the announcement put out by Sony, the overheating might affect any VAIO system in the TZ Line (including VGN-TZ100, VGN-TZ200 series, VGN-TZ300 series and VGN-TZ2000 series):

The issue involves a small number of units which may overheat due to a wiring problem. Sony has initiated a voluntary program to perform a free inspection and, if necessary, a repair to ensure these units meet our high quality standards.

To find out if your VAIO laptop is one of the affected units, you can check out the following link: http://esupport.sony.com/fixmypc. You will be prompted to input your product code and serial number located on the bottom of the notebook. Sony will provide an inspection and, if necessary, on-site repair at home.
