Slimline PS2 Adaptor
Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Announces Recall of Certain AC Adaptors sold with the slimline PlayStation 2
Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) has identified a possible safety concern with certain AC Adaptor units supplied with the new 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.
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 information below as one of those affected, should arrange for a replacement by visiting: www.ps2ac.com
Consumers can also contact the dedicated recall Helpline on 0800 555 516*. A new AC Adaptor will be provided free of charge. Please do not take your 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.
