MARKHAM, ON, Oct. 19 /CNW/ - Toshiba of Canada Limited is announcing a
recall of an AC adapter included with portable DVD player model SD-P1600 due
to a potential burn hazard. The portable DVD player and the AC cord are not
affected by the recall.
It has been found that poor soldering of certain circuit components
inside the AC adapter may cause momentary increase of voltage output. In rare
cases, it is possible that the bottom cover of the portable DVD may melt and
become deformed. This might present a burn hazard if the consumer touched this
area as this momentary process occurred.
The portable DVD player model SD-P1600 along with the AC adapter was
distributed and sold in Canada between January 2005 and April 2006. The price
was approximately $200.00 to $235.00.
Consumers will receive new AC adapters upon calling Toshiba Customer
Service at 1-800-268-3404 and providing the model and serial number to the
customer service agent.
