In cooperation with CSA International, Canon Canada Inc., of Mississauga, Ontario is voluntarily recalling, for possible repair, a small number of low volume copiers in Canada. A faulty connection involving the power cord for the fixing unit heater, may have occurred in some of these copiers due to human error at the time of manufacture or during servicing.

The repair recall includes only the following Canon copiers: PC6, PC6RE, PC65, PC7, PC7RE, PC8, PC11, PC11RE, PC12, NP1010 and NP1020. The model number is on the front panel of the unit.
