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

Hi I have a Flip Ultra Video. When it says I still have 1 hour 23 mins of recording time the camera shuts down. Battery?? I plug it in to charge and after that it says I have over an hour left of...


1) Put your Flip Ultra back into the pakaging box
2) Keep it safely inside your fridge (make sure the fridge isnt on or the best is an old fridge model)
3) Scratch your head and scratch your nuts in the same time for thirty second
4) Turn on your Flip camera, press the red button for setting, and change it to indonesian language. If no indonesian language in the setting, shake it 3 times. It surely has.
5) Jumping around on your parent bed.
6) Sing Britney Spears song and film it yourself.
7) Press stop button
8) Post it on youtube.

I hope this will fix ya problem. Have a nice day :)

My flip mino HD has been charging for 3 hours and will not turn on. I've tried resetting the battery and it still won't turn on


Is it plugged in directly or with a USB extension cable? Some cheaper cables are not sufficient to charge it.

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


UNIT: ultraHD
PROBLEM:
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.
SOLUTION:
I removed the battery for about 30 seconds, then replaced it. my UltraHD flip works great now.

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.

Flip video mino troubleshooting freeze


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 !

Frozen screen on recording


There's a hidden Reset button at the bottom of the Flip Mino. At the bottom of the camera, there is a screw base a tripod. Inside of that screw base there is a little hole. Use a paperclip and poke it into the hole. Hold it there for 7 seconds. You may need to repeat this process 3-4 times. This should shut down the video camera.

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.
