The Zebra Power Supply Unit (PSU) recall initiated December 2016 has been expanded.
The recall period is expanded to include PSUs manufactured by the FSP Group between October 1, 2006 and December 31, 2012. These PSU’s were sold as after-market kits or included with the sale of Zebra printers that may or may not have been included in the original recall notice. This is a comprehensive list of associated printer models. Items in bold below indicate the newly added printer models associated with this recall.
After independent testing, it has been confirmed that the issue is limited to an identified group of PSUs and is NOT associated with the actual Zebra-manufactured printer or AC power cord.
The PSUs were sourced from an established, reputable third-party manufacturer who has been cooperative with the voluntary recall mandates.
The safety of our customers is of paramount importance to Zebra. While Zebra did not directly manufacture the PSUs, we recognize that our component-suppliers are an extension of Zebra and we are working diligently to rectify the issue in a manner that is least disruptive to our customers and channel partners.
Quality, both in product and customer care, is a top priority for Zebra, and we are committed to protecting the safety of our customers.
How to Identify Impacted Equipment and Request Replacements
1. COLLECT PRINTER SERIAL NUMBER(S)
Identify if your Zebra printer(s) are one of the following models:
Locate and record all serial numbers of printers (found on the label adhered to the bottom of the printer).
Previously checked inventory should be re-checked against the expanded recall period and printer models.
2. COLLECT POWER SUPPLY DATE CODE(S)
For each of the printers you identified above, please disconnect the PSU from the printer and examine the “brick” to locate the date code, which is marked with “D/C” (see video on right).
Ensure you check all spare power supplies not currently attached to printers.
If the date code is in the ranges 0639XX through 1253XX (YYWWXX, where YY=year and WW=week), your PSU has been included in the voluntary PSU recall. If the date code on your PSU is not within this date range, your PSU is not included in the voluntary PSU recall, and you can continue to use it with the appropriate Zebra printer.
PSUs manufactured by Hitek are NOT affected by the recall.
If you have a large number of power supplies to replace (more than 10 power supplies per physical location),
