Vizio is withdrawing from the market a quarter of a million TV sets

Vizio is withdrawing more than a quarter of million of its manufactured in the years 2013-2014. It was discovered that the receivers have a constructional defect in the footplate, which causes the TV to overturn itself.

Rarely does any company withdraw from the market due to factory defects and, in addition to Sony, which in 2011 had to withdraw 1.6 million copies of its receivers due to their self-ignition, we did not hear such shares.

This does not mean that they do not happen, as exemplified by Vizio, who, at the request of the US State Board of Product Safety, was forced to withdraw 245,000 E-series TVs from 39 “and 42” models. It was discovered that the E390-BO, E390i-BO and E420i-BO models manufactured between December 2013 and June 2014 have a design fault that affects the wrongly designed stand, which can cause the receiver to overturn. There have been 51 such cases, but fortunately no one was injured, but the risk exists, not to mention the destruction of the equipment itself.

On the commission page, you will find a list of serial numbers for defective receivers, so if you have one, you may want to contact the manufacturer who will provide the replacement.
