Kodak recalls DC5000 Zoom Digital Cameras

Kodak has issued a worldwide voluntarily recall for about 75,000 Kodak DC5000 Zoom digital cameras that may give users an electric shock.

The recall follows an announcement made by Kodak and the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in relation to a manufacturing defect.

Kodak has received 12 reports from consumers world-wide, including two from Australia, who received an electrical shock while changing batteries, or installing or removing the memory card or USB cable. There have been no reports of injury.

Kodak advised customers to check the brand name and model number on the front of their cameras in the bottom right-hand corner. All DC5000 cameras carry a plate on the bottom of the camera containing the Kodak product identifier reading "KJCAA", followed by an eight-digit serial number. The affected serial number range is 01800001 through 11700825.

Kodak said consumers should stop using the affected cameras immediately. The company will cover the cost of inspection, as well as any repair and shipping to and from Kodak repair centers. Consumers in Australia should contact Kodak on 1800 122 465 between 8.30am and 5.30pm (AEST) Monday to Friday to arrange collection of their camera.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
