Question about Pure Digital Flip Video Ultra Camcorder
Have got Flip mino that Iused today to video the kids enjoying the snow. When I got home and tried to down load it to laptop it would not turn on.
Not sureif it wasleft on after filming and battery ran down???? If this was the case, how long does it need to charge before it will switch on again???? Thanks
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.

Flip Mino won't turn on. At first it wouldn't charge (I let battery get too low, THEN couldn't get it to charge.) Now the battery image is full green when connected to computer but can't get cam to turn on. Tried paperclip for 7 seconds. Tried holding record button down for 10 seconds. White light on cam USB is solid. Any advice?
