Question about Aiptek A-HD 720P Flash Media Camcorder

Open Question

Aipetek 1080p 30fps will not power on.

I used my new camera Christmas morning to record some footage. The battery was charged on Xmas eve for over 10 hrs. After using for about an hour, unit lost power completly and I can not get the unit to power back on again. Using the wall outlet to charge the unit with the battery in and out, but the camera will not power up. I've removed the battey and put it back in have it plugged into the wall without the battery in (getting a green light on the back) and can not get the view finder to power on. Your help in trouble shooting this is appreciated.

SOURCE: charging battery on new purchase.

i just got this camera today and i was having the same problem. i figured that i would just leave it while i was at work and see if it needed a full charge or something. when i got home, nothing. it would only power on when plugged in. after a little checking and swearing i found that i had put the battery in backwards. it will fit in backwards but will not charge it. the writing on the battery should be visible when it is in place. hope this helps.

What Features To Look For While Buying A Dash Cam

Installing a dash cam in your car is a good idea for multiple reasons and the most important is the dash cam's basic function; which is to record video footage of happenings around you while you are in your car.

This footage can be handed over to local law enforcement authorities and your insurance company in case of an accident caused by the rash driving of another driver.

I would recommend the VAVA 1080p Dash Cam that provides 60fps video footage during the day and night along with 360° swivel recording within, around and in front of your car.

My flip video camera was working properly then after i recorded some footage it will not sync to the computer anymore. When i try to plug it in it asks if i want to scan and fix the camera but the camera...

The battery may be defective (corrupt). It is not uncommon for rechargeable batteries to go bad, even fairy new ones. You could try a camera reset:

Hold the power button down for 10 seconds
Check and see if the camera has unfrozen
Power the camera off and leave untouched for about 15 seconds.
Turn the camera back on and ensure that it is working properly.

If it is not, you must do a "hard reset."
Take a pin or the point of a thumbtack and press it into the tiny reset hole near the camera's tripod mount. This should reset the camera without affecting any of the video footage recorded with the camera.

If that still doesn't work, contact Flip (Pure Digital) Tech support or replace battery.
