Recall of Slim PS2 adapters

Sony is recalling 3.5m faulty power adapters which were sold with the black PlayStation 2 slimline version between August and December 2004.
It said the power adapter could overheat, causing damage or injury.

The free-standing adapters were sold for the special slimline version of the successful games console. Sony had 40 complaints in the US about them.

Sony said it would replace returned adapters for free. Two-thirds of the affected consoles were sold in Europe.

About 960,000 of the units were sold in the US, 210,000 in Asia and 60,000 in Japan, according to Sony.

More than 50,000 slimline PlayStation 2s were sold in the UK during its first week on sale in November.
