Just wanted to let readers know that the following applies to
Loewe TV's in Australia.
Normally I wouldn't say anything about recalls but this is serious.
Sorry if it's off topic but the fault in this TV has been directly
responsible for 3 house fires in Adelaide recently according
to the Metropolitan Fire Service.
The information below was taken from the Product recalls website.
It just so happens that my sister has one of these sets so I'm glad
her house wasn't burned down because of the fault in this TV.
Please check with your family and friends to see if they are affected.
