Have you tried this? (From the Flip website Help section)

We suggest trying the following to regain your full record time.

Connect your camcorder to your computer and open your
DCIM/100VIDEO folder. This folder contains the videos from your Flip Video camcorder. When your videos are manually renamed within this folder, they are no longer recognized by the Flip Video program. Please ensure that all videos in this folder are carrying their original name. For example, VID#####.AVI where ##### is any number between 00001 and 99998. Then, delete all videos you have previously saved from this folder. Your videos cannot be retrieved once they are deleted, so please make sure you have the videos you wish to keep saved into another folder before doing this.

Also make sure you have deleted any videos that reside outside of the
DCIM/100VIDEO folder within your camcorder's root directory.

After you have deleted all videos, disconnect your camcorder and check on your record time. If you have still not regained your full record time, please reconnect your camcorder and empty your "
trash can". Then, power your camcorder on and off 8 times.

SOURCE: I would like to turn

That is not an option on this unit. To disable the sound you would need to disable the mic manually.

Your issue is consistent with memory corruption in the camera itself. This would make it super hard to recover those videos without data recovery witch is not cheap.
To get the camera working again the memory needs to be delete and reformatted.
Let me know if you have any questions,

When I press the power button on my ultra hd 2nd generation camcorder, the screen lights up with the flip logo and verbage that says hold the record button for setup. It also makes the correct sound for...

Will the camcorder let you go ahead and complete "SETUP"?? if so, go ahead and redo the setup maybe some glich and maybe doing setup again may get the camera going again? hope so!! I have one also and knock on wood, no problems so far. it may be worth a try:

when camcorder turns on: when Flip Video Logo comes up press and hold RECORD button, to enter setup mode use the + and - to adjust current setting and the left and right arrows to select other settings

good luck!

Have a new Ultra HD Flip Video. How do I know when it is fully charged? Does the red light go off or what?

Hello there,

The Flip Ultra should have a rechargeable AA battery pack.

To verify it is charging, the battery icon will be flashing lightning bolt. The red light goes from red to green the moment it is fully charged. It takes six hours before it gets a full charge via the USB.

Please let me know if this gave you enough information. Thank you for using FixYa.

Flip Ultra HD red light won't turn off after charging. Camera won't do anything at all. What do I do?

UNIT: ultraHD
I just had this problem: I turned it on, started to record a video, but it hung up on frame #1, with the record red light stuck on. And I couldn't do any of the following: restart the recording, play already recorded videos, turn it off, connect to PC.
I removed the battery for about 30 seconds, then replaced it. my UltraHD flip works great now.

Lost time/inaccessible files on flip

This may sound risky, but I did this and my Camera is working perfectly again... If you don't have any videos on it you need to salvage too badly this should do the trick.

1) Plug it in (obviously)
2) Go to My Computer and right click your video camera
3) Click Format
4) I clicked restore device defaults because it sounded safe (but may not be necessary)
5) Click start and begin the reformatting

After this i went from my incorrect 27:11 min. remaining on the camera to the full 60. Still records perfectly and the software is still on it and works correctly. Hope it helps some of you out there =)
