What are the defects?

Loewe's continuous product monitoring has established that some of these TV sets may have a manufacturing weakness in a specific solder rivet connection. This can lead to local overheating at the bottom of the set with the potential, under extreme circumstances, to lead to the possibility of ignition.

What are the hazards?

Fire

What should consumers do?

Owners are advised to call Audio Products Group on 1300 130 492 Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm to arrange for an on site inspection (and if necessary modification) free of charge.
