Sony T5 recall
Sony has recently discovered that, with certain units of the Sony Cybershot T5 released in September 2005, there is the possibility that metal plating on the bottom of the camera unit may warp, causing slight cut or scratch to the skin of the user when it is directly touched. In its effort to ensure customer satisfaction, Sony will offer a free replacement service of the bottom casing. With certain Sony T5 models, the metal plating peels away from the unit and warps outward. Due to an irregularity during the initial part production, the adhesive strength of the metal plating declined. As a result, it became more likely that damage to the bottom casing could cause the metal plating to peel away and warp outward.
