    My camera won't turn on either. I put new batteries in, it took one picture and then froze. I closed it to turn it off, took the batteries out and back in. Now it will not turn on at all.

Well, I hate to say it but that sounds like a job where you're going to have to pry open the shell, or take it to an electronics shop and have them do it. What most likely happened is that one of the wires, resistors, Capacitors (the capacitor makes an electric current larger, resistor makes it smaller) was disconnected, so the power cannot get the the motherboard (main "computer") and power the camera.

Camileo p10 wont turn on or charge


I had a similar problem with the P10 not charging via USB, I purchased mine second hand so it came with no charger just a USB cable. I assumed it would charge by the USB cable but it did not, the red light flashes but doesn't charge. Luckily I have an external battery charger for a different camera i got some years ago that takes a similar battery , the P10 battery didn't fit properly so I had to place it at a 45 degree angle into the charger making sure the outer contacts were lined up properly and taped it into place. After an hour it was fully charged and the camera is working fine. The charger is a 4.2 volt charger. New external chargers can be picked up on ebay cheaply

Mine does that once in a while, I turn it off, remove the battery, put the battery back in, plug the AC adapter in and turn it back on and sometimes it works. Now if I can get it to load a tape without eating it.

You should be able to recharge this unit by connecting to your PC and charging through your USB connection.

If your battery is faulty or unable to recharge, here's a replacement battery that's available:

Just about any AC to USB charger will work to recharge this unit, so if you have an iPod with the iPod wall charger, use the correct USB cable with the wall charger and you will be able to recharge the battery in the camcorder.

Hope this helps!

Flip busted


Mine is doing the same thing.
It did it before and I called tech support.
They said to leave the batteries out for three days then put them back in.
I did that and it started working again.... for 2 months.
That isn't working this time, but maybe it will for you.

Mine still opens on my pc and let's me access the video's on my camera!

Flip Ultra - freezes at initial Flip screen - will not shut off


I found a fix that worked for mine.
It was doing the same thing, freezing at the "Flip" screen and would not turn off. I did the remove the batteries deal. It worked once but issue reoccured 2 months later and the battery fix didn't fix it.
What did fix it was...
With the camera off, hold down the Right Arrow button and the trash can button at the same time and turn the camera on.
A few seconds later, I was at the start recording screen!!

Good Luck!
