Coby 32-inch HDTV Recalled, Catches Fire

Coby TFTV3229 HDTV

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a recall of the Coby 32-inch HDTV (model TFTV3229) after six incidents involving the televisions overheating, smoking or catching fire. One incident involved a television catching on fire and scorching a wall. Another involved a fire that was limited to the television. No injuries have been reported.

The manufacturer, Coby USA, is out of business so eight retailers have stepped up to voluntarily recall the 8,900 televisions sold. Consumers should immediately turn off and unplug the recalled televisions and contact the participating retailer where their television was purchased for instructions on the remedy available from that retailer, which could be a refund, store credit, gift card or replacement TV. Because the importer/distributor Coby USA is out of business, the retailers are providing the remedy. The remedy and terms vary between the retailers. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

This recall involves black Coby 32-inch flat screen televisions with model number TFTV3229 and serial numbers beginning with LG and that have M07 or M10 in the 9th, 10th and 11th position of the serial number. The model and serial numbers are printed on a label on the back of the televisions and Coby is printed on the front.
