Bravia TVs May Overheat and Start Fires - Sony Issues Recall and Service Notice
There's something wrong with several of Sony's 40 inch Bravia televisions, and it's not something small either.  Apparently, some of them have been overheating and one has even caught fire as a result of a defect.  Sony says that around 400,000 TVs are affected by the issue.  They've revealed that is has something to do with the backlighting, but haven't specified as to what the problem part is.  The company says though, that there have been no reports of damage to property - well, the TVs obviously, but no other property - and no injuries have occurred.

Sharp Goes Even Further With an 80 Inch TV
The folks at Sharp came out with a 70 inch Aquos TV not too terribly long ago and we were all impressed.  It's not every you see a TV that size - unless you own one and you walk by it all the time, but that's not the point!  The new 80LE632U comes in at a jaw dropping 80 inches, which, as Sharp President John Herrington puts it, "delivers morethan double the screen area of a 55-inchTV, for an amazing viewing experience."

Toshiba Will Launch a 55 Inch Glasses-Free 3DTV in December
Some technologies propagate a bit faster than others.   We're still waiting for large scale OLED sets at a reasonable price - and we'll probably just keep on waiting - but glasses-free TV is already here.  Or it will be in December anyway. Toshiba's upcoming 55 inch set will allow you to enjoy the 3D experience without having to wear glasses, which is a feat that may really turn some heads.  After all, 3D glasses are one of the most of maligned parts of the 3D experience.

Pioneer Elite TVs are Back!
Folks that appreciate a good TV - a really good TV - hold Pioneer in incredibly high regard. The Kuro series of plasmas is still the one that sets the standard for deep black levels and Pioneer's reputation is still strong years after the company exited the TV market. Those Pioneer Elite sets are coming back with help from Sharp.  We're not getting a plasma, which may disappoint some fans, but the LED backlit LCD that's being offered sounds impressive.  It packs the same yellow sub-pixel that Sharp is known for, as well as full LED backlighting and local dimming of those LEDs.

Hitachi Considers Exit from TV Business
Sure, Hitachi isn't exactly a TV brand that AV Rev readers are likely to have in the house - it's not on the same level as a Panasonic, Samsung or Sony - but when any brand is considering leaving the business it's well worth a mention. Hitachi started in TV production back in 1956 and now, 55 years later, they're finding things a bit difficult.  Competing with Korean manufacturers who have lower costs is problematic and Hitachi has been considering outsourcing production for some time.
