Flip video camera screen flashing..?

When I plug my Flip Mino into the computer, the screen randomly flashes on and off. When I unplug it, I can't turn it on. I can't get it to do anything at all. I haven't used it for about a year but yesterday I charged it and I think it has a full battery now. What's going on?

SOURCE: Flip Mino won't turn on!

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.

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 !

For the Flip Ultra - Take out batteries you should see a flat somewhat square piece of metal with a small black piece sticking up from it. Take a pencil and push the black piece down wait a few minutes then try turning your flip back on.

How to put flip video to web page from Flip Mino&Mino HD, Flip Ultra&Ultra HD...


Flip camcorders include the Flip Ultra, the Flip UltraHD, the Flip Video Mino, and the Flip Video MinoHD. They are nice affordable and easy to use. In this article, I want to talk about how to add Flip video to your website.


Two options to put Flip video on your website

Option1. The Easiest Way to Embed Flip Video in Website
Step1. Upload Flip video to YouTube with Flipshare
Flipshare is an amazing editing software designed by the Flip for Flip camcorders. It offers Flip users to Upload videos instantly to YouTube .

Step2. Embed the uploaded video in your website
After you upload Flip video to YouTube, just copy the code from the "Embed" box from YouTube and then paste it into your website.

Please mind: This method is easy-to-do and free, however, the embedded video will contain Ads and Text Youtube adds.

Option2. The Best Way to Put Flip Video to Website
Required Tool: Flip Video to Flash converter mac
The mac flip video to flash converter can convert your flip video to Flash in FLV and SWF formats which is the first choice to insert video in website. It supports all flip camcorders, such as the Flip Ultra, the Flip UltraHD, the Flip Video Mino, and the Flip Video MinoHD. You even don't have to take actionscript, because the flip video to flash converter mac has the ability to automatically embed your flip video in an HTML webpage.

Flip video MP4 to Flash converter mac empowers you to crop, clip and merge your MP4 files Flip video camcorder shoots as easy as a piece of cake. With Mac Flip video AVI to Flash converter, you are able to add special effect, flash player and preloader template to your AVI video clips so that your embedded videos look professional and more vivid.

How it works:

Step2. Launch the converter and import your flip video into it.
Step3. Do advanced operation such as cropping and clipping video.

Next: Create free flash slideshow for website with photos.

I have a flip slide hd S1240W that has not been charged up in a long time. I have tried to charge it and attempted to reset and then charge. All that is happening is a red flashing light but nothing at...


Try removing the batteries, plugging into your computer, popping the batteries back in, and removing. Wait 5 minutes, and plug back in! This should have an affect!

We have some videos we want to transfer to the computer. We are running Mac OSX with the Leopard software. When I attach the camera, I see the point and shoot icon for a short time and then I hear a beep...


Put the batteries in the camera, then connect via the USB flip connection. The camera will show up on the desktop like a flash drive does. Open it when it shows up. Drill until you find the avi movies and drag them to your desktop. You may have to convert them to quicktime files. If you cannot use the software that came with the camera (it does work), you can import the sections into iMovie.

Lost storage capacity


I had the same exact problem... then someone told me the fix... you have to "empty trash" on your computer (when the camcorder is plugged into your USB) - this will "empty" the trash on your computer, but also empty on your flip too...

I guess what happens when you delete all files from the "100 Video" file is that your camcorder moves all files into its own "trash" (on the device) - so the camera "shows" that there are no videos, but in reality, they are still on the flash memory on the device..

hope this makes sense and works for you.

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!
