Cardiac Science said today that it is fixing errors in the software of some automated external defibrillators manufactured between August 2006 and March 2007.

The Bothell company said a component in some of the defibrillators doesn’t match the factory software settings, putting the device into “service required” mode at times. The company said the correction is voluntary and that it has received two complaints of the problem occurring during use.

Cardiac Science, which is shipping the updated software to customers, said it expects to take a pretax hit of $800,000 to $1 million in the third quarter due to the correction.
