Toshiba Recalls T Series Notebooks Due To Burn Hazard

Toshiba has issued a voluntary recall of its T130 and T135 13.3-inch notebook computers due to the possible risk of fire. This recall affects a good 41,000 notebooks sold worldwide and includes the Satellite T135, T135D, and Satellite Pro T130 notebooks. The issue is due to the potential overheating of the notebook’s AC adapter power plug, and Toshiba has already received several incidents of the notebooks overheating and deforming the plastic around the power plug. Owners of affected models can check if their notebook is affected by downloading a new BIOS update that will check if the notebook is overheating, disable the external power port when necessary, and display a message to bring the notebook to Toshiba for a free repair.
