Pentax UK Recalls Plug Cord for Some Pentax Cameras

Electrical Cord for Some Pentax Cameras

Pentax UK is recalling the plug cord – not the camera itself – of some models sold after November 20, 2006 in the United Kingdom.

The plug cords in question may be faulty and had been supplied with some Pentax Optio A20, Optio L20, Optio S7, Optio T20, Optio W20 and K10D cameras.

Pentax acknowledges that despite having been supplied with full British and European safety accreditation, the potential defect may arise if the connector is subjected to stress, when a crack may appear in the figure of 8 connector that connects to a battery charger. The fault may lead to the electric contacts to becoming exposed possibly leading to injury.

Affected users may contact Pentax UK for a replacement.
