Sony Recalls Certain PlayStation 2 AC Adaptors


Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Announces Recall of Certain AC Adaptors Sold with the slimline PlayStation 2


London, 13 September 2005 - Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) today announced a voluntary recall of certain AC Adaptors supplied with the black slimline PlayStation®2.

Certain AC Adaptors, identified as manufactured between August 2004 and December 2004, and supplied with the black slimline PlayStation 2 models SCPH70002, 70003 and 70004 may overheat and cause an injury hazard to consumers. It is likely that some of these units may have been on sale after this date. No other PlayStation 2 units are affected.

As a precautionary measure, and to ensure the quality and safety of PlayStation products for consumers, SCEE has taken the decision to recall all affected AC Adaptors in Europe, Middle East, Africa and Australasia.

Consumers who identify their AC Adaptor from the diagram below as one of those affected, should arrange for a replacement by visiting:

www.ps2ac.com

Consumers can also arrange for a replacement by contacting the dedicated recall Helpline, the number for which can be found in the consumer alerts to be published in national newspapers commencing Wednesday 14th September.

A new AC Adaptor will be provided free of charge. Consumers should not take their AC Adaptor back to the place of purchase.

As a precautionary measure, and until a replacement is provided, SCEE advises consumers owning one of the AC Adaptors affected by this Notice to unplug the PlayStation 2 from the mains power supply and discontinue use until a replacement AC Adaptor is provided.

We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.
