Question about Flip Video Video Cameras
I am unable to install the flip mino HD software either from the flip or from the Flip website. Keep getting the same message telling me that I have an incomplete or corrupt installation and to uninstall it. However it doesn't appear in my programme files to uninstall so not sure how to proceed. I have a standard pc, not a mac. Any ideas? I have had an online chat with the Flip technical advice people but they have been unable to resolve the problem.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

SOURCE: my flip mino wont turn off
Easy Fix bro,same thing happened to my mino when I let my friends fool around with it.
Soulution:See the tripod mount,theirs a little hole in it,and thats what your gonna use to fix it.Just get something small I recomend a paperclip,and bend it into an S shape.Put the point of it in that little hole,it triggers a restart for the camera,and boom!Its fixed.Worked for me.Proved by the Flip Company.
Hope this helps

I had the same problem. 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.

I had the same problem when plugging my Flip into the USB port. Kept saying a file was corrupted. I went to the Pure Digital Technologies website and downloaded the upgrade/program directly and it installed fine. You might try that if you already haven't.

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.

return it for a refund! i bought one, it did the same as yours. i returned it and bought the 2nd one. It did the same as the first one (and the same as yours.)
It is a piece of junk. Supposedly the previous Flips were good, unfortunately, I didn't have the previous models so my experiences only are bad.
