Voluntary Replacement Program for Battery Packs used in certain Toshiba-branded Notebooks
On November 10, 2016, Toshiba Corporation Japan (“Toshiba”) announced a voluntary replacement program offering customers free-of-charge replacements for battery packs manufactured for certain Toshiba-branded notebooks. Potentially affected battery packs were sold with certain new notebooks and as accessories or replacement batteries in the course of repair between June 2011 and November 2016. Based on the information available, there is a possibility that the affected battery packs can overheat and pose a potential burn or fire hazard.
This program substitutes Dynabook's previous voluntary replacement program that was carried out since January 28, 2016. Dynabook asks all its customers to check their battery packs using the instructions below, even if they have already checked before November 10, 2016.
If your battery pack is subject to this program, Dynabook recommends you turn off the notebook and remove the battery pack immediately. You can continue using your notebook safely by powering the notebook with the AC adapter until you receive the replacement battery pack.
