Re: my cam just won't work

Have you tried a "direct" power connection. Maybe the battery is dead.

I just bought my 11 year old an ultra hd 2 hr flip video, we cannot even get it to power on, any suggestions?

You need to first Charge your camcorder battery pack.(mine had to charge over night) the first time.  Plug the little arm that extends from the camera into a USB 2 port on your computer and make sure your computer stays ON during the charging, otherwise the camcorder will not charge.

A red light will come on during charge and goes off when charged. If it does not come while plugged in try a different USB port.  Screen should light up temporarily and Red light showing charging on front of camcorder.


IF YOU HAVE ALREADY DONE THE ABOVE, and are having the problem, pull the battery pack out and reseat it back in there again.  maybe connection not good.  OH, and I think mine had plastic covering the metal connections you may want to check that too -remove if so----- BUT the entire white plastic around the batteries STAYS IN PLACE do not remove that. 


If that still doesn't work I would try regular AA batteries in it if in fact you have The FLIP ULTRA HD it will take regular batteries too.    IF they work - then maybe you got a defective Rechargeable Battery pack and should contact Flip Video at

Sony Handycam Disc May Be Scratched Message

your camera might have an issue with the lens not reading the disc properly. if you already tried using b/n dvd disc, just make sure there are no smudges on it when you place it in the dvd cam. to futher isolate issue,try playing back discs with previous recordings that you made. if still it doesn't work. reset the camcorder (check manual for reset button location, make sure cam powered on when you press button using any fine-tipped object). if still didn't power reset.remove battery or ac adapter.leave the cam w/o any power source for at least a minute. if your still getting the same problem, it won't hurt to try cleaning the lens using an 8cm dvd disc cleaner (w/c usually comes w/a non-abrasive solution) as the last resort. if everything fails, unit may need service. hope this helps. thanks:)

Communication error with JVC Everio 32x/30GB Hard Disk Drive Cam.

Are you using original JVC Data batteries? The knock off batteries use a small cable to the charge port to defeat the battery chip in these JVC's.

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.

Panasonic hdc-sd1

i came across the same problem and even though you seem to be powering the cam from the usb lead and battery, you also need to plug the ac adapter into the camcorder otherwise it won't let you go any further, asuming i'ts not plugged in already, the question isn't that clear...

meanwhile my hdc sd1 is not even turning on, so think yourself lucky

No picture in rec mode, cam switches off in 10sec

Try using the Dummie Battery and connect that end to charger.
This way you will know that you don't have battery problems.

I get the DEW indication and cam shuts off

try to dry up your camera using electric hair blower drier, dew is present inside your camera, but dont overheat the unit, place your hand between drier and cam to make sure you are not overheating it. if the trouble is still there, the sensor is defective and you need pro fix.
