The batteries can overheat when the camera is connected to an AC adapter or docking station. At least one camera has caught fire, but no injuries have been reported.
The Photosmart R707 was introduced in August 2004 and sold for $250 to $400.
More information on the problem can be found at the US Consumer Product Safety Commission website.
Consumers are urged to stop using the cameras until they have downloaded and installed an HP Photosmart R707 firmware upgrade from HP's website.
