IBM has recalled 56,000 faulty PC monitors that are a fire risk, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has said.
IBM voluntarily agreed to recall the monitors after receiving five reports of screens overheating and smoking due to circuit boards running too hot.
In one of these cases the CPSC reported that "minor property damage" was caused by one of the defective monitors.
The recalled IBM monitors include the G51 Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) and G51t Touch Screen CRT models. The CPSC said no injuries have been reported.
The G51 and G51t monitors have the following model numbers on a label on the back of the unit: 6541-02N, 6541-02E, 6541-02S, 6541-Q0N, 6541-Q0E, and 6541-Q0S.
The label on the back of the recalled G51 models also has a date of manufacture between June 1997 and September 1997. The units were manufactured in China and Malaysia.
