    Request to Stop Using VAIO Fit 11A Personal Computer

    Dear Valued Sony VAIO Customer

    It has come to our attention that some of the internal, non-removable battery packs provided to us by a third-party supplier and included in VAIO Fit 11A released in January 2014 have the potential to overheat resulting in partial burns to the housing of the PC.

    If you have one or more of the VAIO Fit 11A models listed below, please immediately discontinue use, shut down and unplug the PC from the mains. We are currently identifying affected PCs by serial numbers and developing a program to repair or replace the affected PCs at no charge, or to refund the purchase price for the affected PCs, in accordance with the program. We expect to post a program announcement with details within two weeks. In the meantime, as your safety is our primary concern, we ask again that you please refrain from using the below-listed models until you further hear from us in the program announcement.

    We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

    Any inquiry, please contact Sony Thai Contact Center at 02715-6100 , 9.00 am – 5.30 pm. For Songkran Festival holidays during April 13 – 16. Any inquiry about VAIO FIT11A, please contact at 02-610-9665 from 11.00 am – 6.00 pm.
