Toshiba’s T130 and T135 Laptop Series Recalled Due to Potential Overheating Hazard

Toshiba decided to recall all the Toshiba Satellite T130 and T135 series notebooks and immediately repair or exchange them at no charge. Toshiba worked with US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for voluntarily recalling its Satellite T130, T135 and T135(D) series notebooks due to the potentially identified Burn or Fire hazards in them due to over heating.

With nearly 41,000 units in the field sold since August 2009 at a price of $600 and $800, Toshiba’s affected models can be tracked with its model or part numbers. Until date Toshiba gathered 129 cases reporting overheating and deformation of AC adapter plastic case when the AC power adapter was used to charge the laptop. As a step of circumspection, Toshiba asks the consumers of T130, T135 and T135(D) series notebooks to download the latest BIOS version that lets them detect whether notebook is overheating and automatically disables the external power source with a warning message that reminds users to contact Toshiba.

If you are a Toshiba note user and your part numbers begin with PST3AU, PST3BU or PST3LU, then Toshiba urges you to immediately contact Toshiba Satellite at (800) 457-7777 to overcome the over heating problems of your laptops.
