Sony recalls 69,000 VAIO power adapters due to possible shock hazardsThose using a Sony Vaio product may want to stop and listen up for just a moment. Sony has just announced that they are recalling about 69,000 power adapters that are being used on select Vaio all-in-one desktop computers and Sony Vaio docking stations.

More specifically, the affected products include the following product models;

  • VGC-LT series (Vaio all-in-one desktop)
  • VGC-JS2 series (Vaio all-in-one desktop)
  • VGP-PRBX1 (Vaio docking station)
  • VGP-PRFE1 (Vaio docking station)

Furthermore these affected units were sold between September 2005 and October 2009.

As to what could go wrong, according to the report, the insulation that was used in the adapters could fail over time which may cause one to get a not so nice shock.

At this time, it seems there have only been four reports of a short circuit, and thankfully no one has reported any injuries. That said, it could not hurt to follow up and get a new power adapter courtesy of Sony.
