Some Printers made by Lexmark and sold by both IBM and Dell are being recalled because of a potential shock hazard caused by a short circuit.

The recalled printers include Lexmark E232, E232t, E330, E332n, E332tn; IBM Infoprint 1412, 1412n; Dell 1700 and 1700n, according to the CPSC.

They were sold for about $200 between May and August through office supply, electronics and computer stores, as well as through the Web sites of International Business Machines and Dell, among other outlets.

The CPSC urged consumers to immediately stop using the laser printers and contact the companies for a free replacement. Lexmark: recall.lexmark.com or 1-877-877-6218; Dell: www.1700printer.com or 1-888-245-3959; and IBM: www.ibm.com/printers/1412notice or 1-800-426-7378.

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

Thanks for the information
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

well the 5150 is not on the list. I for one like the immediate replacement offered by the company. Lexmark may not be the best, but you gotta love the volume they sell if you want 'em cheap down the road. :thumbsup:
patiently patrolling, plenty of persisant pests n' problems ...
