All Epson projectors sold between 1 April 2012 and 28 March 2019, apart from the L, Z, LS and EV series, are the subject of a recall published today by the ACCC.
The problem is that a ceiling or wall mounted projector may drop from its mounting.
In situations where a projector is exposed to smoke, steam or vapours containing oils and solvents, the plastic casing may become weakened and eventually crack, and then the projector may fall from its mounting with the possibility of injury to anyone beneath it.
Owners of affected projectors that are installed near kitchens or exhaust extraction fans should contact Epson on 1300 655 723.
Epson will provide advice, and if necessary arrange a site inspection along with the provision of a safety wire to secure the projector to the ceiling mount.
The safety wire will presumably prevent the projector falling, but there is no mention of whether it takes enough of the weight to prevent the casing from cracking in the first place, or whether the projector will continue to operate satisfactorily if the casing does crack and the projector is held in place by the wire.
