Notice of Rectification Work on Certain Fuji Xerox Multifunction Devices1st August 2017
Fuji Xerox New Zealand informs customers that isolated incidences of fire have occurred overseas on ApeosPort-V/DocuCentre-V digital multifunction device series designed for use at rated voltage 220-240V. Detailed investigations conducted by our team in Japan, have determined that these isolated overseas incidents were caused when extreme voltage was supplied to the device.
There are over 50,000 of these products in use across New Zealand and Australia and in the nearly 4 years that these products have been available, there have been no incidents in either New Zealand or Australia.
Fuji Xerox and its affiliates take the incidents very seriously and to minimize any re-occurrence of the incident, however remote, Fuji Xerox will provide safety measures to the affected models* identified below. We have determined that the same models (ApeosPort-V/DocuCentre-V Series) at rated voltage 100V-115V are not at risk due to the use of different components.
The rectification work will be done manually and shall be provided free of charge, as per the details below.
Fuji Xerox can confirm that the device is safe for use without excessive voltage. The type of circumstances that caused these incidents is very rare in New Zealand due to the electrical safety standards of New Zealand.
This work will be carried out by our service technicians, therefore no action is required by you.
