Fire Hazard With Konica Minolta Printers

  • On sale until March 2011
  • Fire hazard from volt DC line
  • Four models affected

The ACCC has put out a recall for four models of Konica Minolta printers that were on sale between June 2010 and March this year.

It is believed that if the volt DC line in the printers become exposed there is a possibility of it causing heat, smoke and fire.
The wiring harness for a 24 volt DC electromagnetic clutch unit may not be seated in the correct position and may possibly make contact with a moving disc. This can cause the insulation on the wiring to be worn off over time and expose a 24 volt DC line.

Model numbers of those being recalled are:

  • bizhub C35 – an A4 multi function Colour Printer that prints at 30ppm in both colour and monochrome. It has scanning, faxing and copying functionality
  • bizhub C35P – an A4 single function Colour Printer that prints at 30ppm in both colour and monochrome.
  • magicolor 4750DN – an A4 Colour Printer that prints at 30ppm in both colour and monochrome.magicolor 3730DN – an A4 Colour Printer that prints at 24ppm in both colour and monochrome.
