    Chinese quality control finds Sony digital cameras substandard

    Sony has withdrawn the products from the Chinese market and apologized
    publicly to consumers in a television programme. The products failed
    quality testing only in Zhejiang.

    Beijing (AsiaNews/SCMP) – The electronics company Sony has apologized
    to Chinese consumers for the substandard quality of six digital camera
    models discovered in Zhejiang during a quality control check.

    Zhejiang's Industry and Commerce Administration said some of the
    cameras' features did not meet minimum standards requested by China
    and it had communicated these defects to Sony. Ye Yuanchun , deputy
    secretary general of the Zhejiang Consumer Rights Protection
    Association, said: "Any company, especially a big enterprise, should
    respond to consumers quickly and come up with responsible proposals to
    deal with the fallout." Dissatisfied customers may return the
    equipment.

    Sony spokeswoman, Shoko Yanagisawa, said the company had suspended
    sales of the six models to the entire Chinese market from December 16
    until it could satisfy the provincial inspection standard, with whom
    it is seeking an “amicable solution”. Sony then apologized on a Sunday
    programme for consumers on national television. “We've caused
    customers a lot of inconvenience, so we are apologising,” said Li Xi,
    director of public relations. In 2005, Sony sold around 19,000 of
    these digital cameras in Zhejiang.

    The electronics giant cannot explain how these models failed quality
    control checks in only one province. Yanagisawa said the products were
    sold across the world and there had been no other complaints.
    Nonetheless “we are checking and confirming as to why there is this
    difference in the results.”
