Sony announced that "faulty software" may cause 400,000 of their LCD and rear-projection TVs to either refuse the "off" button or not wake from stand-by. This software issue happens after approximately 1,200 hours of use. The models of Bravia affected were sold in Japan, the United States, South America, China and other Asian countries.
For consumers running digital or cable television packages, the problem can be upgraded automatically, but hands-on technician work would be required for people using an analog connection. Sony refused to comment on how much it may cost to fix the problem.
