CPSC, Philips Electronics Announce Recall of Speaker Power Adapters Sold with HP Computers

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Philips Electronics, of New York, N.Y., is voluntarily recalling about 93,000 speaker power adapters sold with Hewlett-Packard Co. (HP) business desktop computers. The speaker power adapter's power cord connector is not grounded, posing a potential shock hazard to consumers.

HP received one report of a Philips speaker power adapter plug that was not grounded which was discovered by a consumer during an electrical inspection. No injuries have been reported.

The speaker power adapters were included in HP's P1534A External Amplified Speaker sets. There is a label on the bottom of the speakers with the model number "P1534-60001." The package includes a black rectangular power adapter, which is about 3-inches high, 2-inches wide and 2-inches long. The adapter has two permanently attached power cords: one that connects to the light or dark gray speakers and a "T-junction" plug that connects to the computer. The speaker power adapter has "Model D12-1-A-950" and "Made in China" printed on a white label on the power adapter.

HP and business computer retailers sold personal computers with the speaker power adapters nationwide mostly to businesses. Some of these businesses then sold the computers to employees for personal use. HP's web site also sold the powered speakers and adapters with HP business desktop computer bundles, as well as packaged individually. The adapters were sold between October 2000 and April 2002 for about $34.

Consumers should unplug the T-junction plug immediately and stop using the speakers. Consumers should contact Philips Electronics at (800) 870-7193 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday for a free replacement speaker power adapter. For more information, consumers can log on to the Philips Electronics' web site at or Hewlett-Packard's web site at
