Flip Camera Video Screen is white

I have a flip video camera. It used to work just fine. Now when I turn the power on, the screen is blank white. If I press the play button I can hear the audio of the last video, but nothing appears on the screen. I put new batteries in it, but the problem remained. Any thought on the cause and the fix?

THe camera is still likely recording good video and sound, you just can't see it on the little LCD screen. Go ahead and film something short, then plug the camera into your computer and see if you have a little movie. It's not good anymore, but can still work! I don't have a solution for the crash of the LCD monitor.

My flip video won't turn off or record, won't be acknowledged by PC via USB port - seems to have frozen - screen is black but light behind it showing power is on but can't do anything with it.


To fix, I held the on/off button down for an extended time (around 10 secs approx) until it finally turned off. Left it alone for a few minutes and then turned back on. Worked okay. Also got a response from flipshare support who said there is a reset button inside the tripod space, use a pin to press that and then fully recharge camera via USB slot on PC.

Flip Video Mino keeps freezing up, can't shut down or upload


At least the following works on my first generation Flip Ultra camcorder (not Mino). Remove battery, put it back next morning. After that be careful not to touch "on" slider switch on the side of the camcorder while Flip logo is still on the screen. I mean turn the device on by using the slider switch and do not touch that switch again until Flip logo on the screen is gone. Doing the opposite (trying to use the "on" switch again while device is still "booting" and Flip logo is on the screen) will lead to the Flip Ultra freeze.

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!

Camcorder froze


Me, too. Flip Video support suggests removing the batteries for 48-72 hours to drain the camcorder of any "residuals."

Camera software corrupted??


I had the same problem with my flip mino HD. Here are the steps I took to fix it.

1. Adjust the power options on your laptop to ensure it does not sleep/hiberate ever.
2. Reset the camcorder by inserting a paperclip into the hole in the tripod mount. Hold the paperclip in there for about seven seconds.
3. Then immediately plug the flip into the cpu.
4. You may not see anything besides the little blinking white light on the USB arm for a while (about 30 minutes maybe) but leave it in.
5. Eventually it should spring to life and show the recharging battery on the little screen (the Flip Share program may start too.)
6. Leave it charging until the little white light stops flashing - full charge about 3 hours.
7. You can then remove the flip and change the power settings back to normal.

There is a reset button! Get a pin and push into the tiny hole at the bottom - inside the tripod screw hole. Push in and hold. The camera will reset. I called the Flip support - they were great !

My flip video camera froze.it wont turn on....


Have you tried resetting the camera? Hold down the power button and the red button simultaneously until the camera shuts off (takes about 10 seconds). Then, just press the power button again and the camera should turn back on. I had the same problem; when I pressed the red button to stop recording, the camera froze, and the red light remained on. I tried resetting it like this, and it seemed to work.
