In our announcement titled "Free Repair Program for VAIO Fit 11A Personal Computer" on Apr 24, 2014, we advised that we had started repairing the affected PCs.

The battery packs on those affected VAIO Fit 11A PCs have the potential to overheat resulting in partial burns to the housing of the PC. For customers who have one or more of the affected models, that have not been repaired, please contact your local Contact Centre/Service Centre for repair assistance.
