November 5, 1999Sony Issues Safety
Advisory Affecting a Small Number of Power Cords on Certain PlayStation Game Consoles
Foster City, CA (SafetyAlerts) - Sony Computer
Entertainment America (SCEA) and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have
received a very small number of reports in which the failure of some electrical power
cords for the PlayStation game console may create a potential shock hazard to Consumers.
Although these incidents are rare and
have been isolated, SCEA would prefer to err on the side of caution and urges parents to
inspect the electrical cord that attaches to the PlayStation game console.
If the connector on the electrical
cord that plugs into the game console is cracked or broken in any way, please discontinue
use of the cord immediately and contact a SCEA Customer Service Representative at
1-877-665-7669. SCEA will replace the cord without charge.
If you are unsure whether there is a
problem with the electrical cord, please do not hesitate to contact a Customer Service
Representative at the same number.
