Toshiba Portable DVD Player AC Adapters Recalled


Toshiba has recalled about 142,000 AC adapters sold with its SD-P1600 portable DVD player due to a potential defect wherein the adapter causes the DVD player to overheat, resulting in a burn hazard.

The DVD players were sold in retail stores between January 2005 and April 2006 for between $200 and $230. If you have one of these players, you should stop using it and call Toshiba at (877) 290-6064 for a replacement adapter.
