Japan's Sony said Wednesday that some 1.6 million of its Bravia flat panel televisions were at risk of overheating due to defective parts, but the electronics giant did not issue a recall.



The company said it would exchange a defective part in about 189,000 of the televisions which were sold domestically since September 2007.



Sony has so far received about a dozen complaints from customers in Japan whose televisions partly melted due to overheating, but it said there were no reported injuries.



A total of 1.6 million Bravia liquid crystal displays equipped with the same defective parts were sold worldwide, a company spokesman said, adding that Sony may take similar measures to repair units sold overseas.
