Lenovo recalls power cords
« on: December 10, 2014, 02:23:24 PM »
The following was copied/pasted from http://www.majorgeeks.com/news/story/lenovo_recalls_power_cords.html :

After receiving reports of the cord overheating, sparking, melting, and burning, Lenovo is issuing a recall for more than 500,000 computer AC power cords in the U.S.

The recall could apply to anyone who purchased an IdeaPad laptop from the B-, G-, S-, U-, V- or Z-series between February 2011 and June 2012. A complete list can be found here:  http://support.lenovo.com/il/en/powercord2014

The company is offering a free replacement you can claim via its customer service line at 1-800-426-7378. Operating hours are between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.

You can further check your cord by unplugging it from the power source and then remove the power cord from your PC.

Next, remove the cord from your power brick (the part that goes between your laptop's power brick and the wall outlet). On the end that plugs into your brick, check to see if the model number is LS-15
