Also; there is currently
a serious issue with Counterfeit Xerox AC Adapters (and other
"brands") - Fake Xerox Laptop Power Supplies. These fake units
are currently being sold online, particularly via well known
online auction sites. Quite apart from being highly illegal,
purchasing these units can be fatal. For there have been cases
where Fake Xerox AC Adapters (Fake Xerox Laptop Power Supplies)
have overheated, the plastic body has melted and they have burst
into flames - caused serious damage.
Obviously; Xerox has
no connection with, or control over Fake Xerox Power Supplies and
these Counterfeit Xerox Power Supplies look very like Genuine
Xerox Parts, but the build and component quality is sub-standard
and they are potentially lethal.
As a rule of thumb;
Never buy Fake Xerox (or "other brand") Power Boards
Adapters, for use with Xerox Printers. If you are unsure whether
it is fake - dont buy it. Only buy UK sourced Xerox branded parts
and NEVER buy Xerox branded AC Adapters, Batteries or other Xerox
parts from China, India or other Eastern countries.
Anti Piracy can work with Xerox, online auction sites
and the authorities to significantly reduce - hopefully
eradicate the supply of Xerox OEM products, Fake Xerox
Printers, Counterfeit Xerox parts and pirated Xerox
