Maxdata is recalling all Belinea 10 70 50 monitors sold between 1997 and 1999 because of "increased failure rate".

The move follows Maxdata's discovery that an incorrectly supplied component could cause the product to fail "within a year and half to two years"

According to Maxdata, there has been no evidence of any subsequent damage caused by the failure – but the company adds that this possibility cannot be ruled out.

Customers using this model can register online
for the modification of the monitor. There is also a free hotline, 0800 169 4257.

Maxdata is assuring its customers that the fault will be dealt with free of charge.
