HP will recall about 679,000 digital cameras worldwide to fix an issue that causes the battery pack to overheat when connected to a docking station or AC adapter, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday. One report has been received of an HP camera catching fire, however no injuries have occurred.

The cameras were sold between August 2004 and April 2006 for between $250 and $400 USD. In the U.S., the recall involves about 224,000 cameras. The agency recommended that owners of affected cameras stop using the devices and apply a firmware update that would provide a temporary fix. In the place of the rechargeable battery, regular batteries should be used until the issue is remedied.
