Flip Mino HD battery will not recharge

I had no problem recharging on an Imac but now that I am on the road with a macbook the battery won't recharge.
The laptop recognizes the Flip camera when I usb input and I can pull off the videos and work with them when conncected. 
But it doesn't recharge while in port

    I downloaded an updated version of the software offered by PureDigital and now as a result my Mino does not charge completely nor starts with the side power on button. I already reseted as the way it was recommended in another post and this did not solve the problem.

    I used to be a happy and proud owner of the Flip Mino, now.... not so much.

    I have had the same problem. I had a replacement sent from Amazon and it did the same thing. Company told me to try resetting the device. I just did that and will report if it was succesful or not.

    My Mino HD does not charge any more when connected to the USB port of my mac or PC. I am unable to switch it on. I Tried to reset it several times, but nothing happen.

    I have the same problem. 
    My viedo's won't play on the mac and it doesn't recharge.
    I have tried charging through USB on my mac and also tried my iPhone to USB wall charger which didn't work.


    I haven't tried speaking to Flip Mino or check out their FAQs so I'll post any response I get here.

I panicked when I saw all these posts but the reset did work for me. Others say it doesn't but this first time at least, it did the trick. I stuck the end of a paper clip in the little hole in where the tripod mount is (it's further recessed than the mount itself). It doesn't seem like it fits, but it does. The minoHD was off, since by this time it wouldn't turn on. When I tried to turn it on again, it finally came on with the battery in the red zone. I recharged and it appears to be fine.

Note that to charge the Mino you need a high-power USB port, and Mac laptops are not high enough power: they usually won't charge a Mino HD battery.

My brand new Flip Mino won't turn on. Tried it


Chances are that the battery doesn't have enough charge. I would suggest charging it overnight to see if that helps. Sometimes products off the shelf have been sitting awhile, and the battery is just not charged at all. Also, with rechargeable batteries, they have to be recycled, that is, recharged about 4 times before they charge up to their maximum potential. If charging the battery good doesn't help, I would just get my money back, if you can. Good luck hope this helps.

The flip mino hd usb won't plug into most of my usb ports (And yes, I know the difference between a firewire and usb). I have tried it on four different computers with a total of 10 usb ports. it worked...


My flip mino hd USB also will not plug into my MacBook Pro.  I've tried it on 3 different machines and it will only fit into one port, and not at all easy into that port.  When I look at the USB connector on the device, there appears to be slight raised plastic ridged on the outside ends of the connector.

Flip Mino not working


Return it for a refund if you can. That's what I had to do when Flip "Support" ignored me. Finally I charged it off through the Credit Card company - THEN they found time to answer me. I just sent it back. What's the point of a poorly-made product with extremely poor Warranty service?

Zero space to record but no files on camera


MAC Users....

Remember those annoying "hidden files"...that's the problem.

Go to Utilities/ Disk Utility/ (select the Mino)/ Erase (up top)/ Erase (near the bottom)

and the problem will be resolved.....

Make it a great day

Flip Mino HD Screen Frozen


I had the same problem when it was brand new straight out of the box. Below is Pure Digital's (manufacturer of the Mino HD) response. This did solved my problem.

"Please ensure that you are gently touching the operational buttons on the camcorder rather than pressing them. Pressing too hard, or too rapidly in succession while waiting for a response, can desensitize the touch pad, requiring a reset of the camcorder.

If you find that the Mino has already frozen, we suggest resetting the camcorder.

To reset, simply take a pin and insert it into the reset hole within the camera’s tripod mount, wait five seconds before powering on, and then power on without touching any of the buttons on the back of the camcorder for an additional five seconds.

Please note that resetting the camcorder in this manner will not affect the videos resident on the camcorder; it will simply reset the screen and button sensitivity on the Mino.

Thank you,
Flip Video Support"

I hope this helps.

BTW my Mino HD has frozen twice now (I've had it for 2 hours total so far!) and the reset trick has fixed it both times. It seems to me the buttons are too sensitive or the computer program not the most stable. I hope this is the last of the problems!
