Flip support helped me solve this problem. Their procedure is to take the batteries out of the camera and leave it sit for 48 hours. After 48 hours, put different batteries into the camera and turn it on. Your problem should be solved. It worked for me the first time and now I currently doing it for a second time. Waiting for 48 is no fun, but at least it works and fixing it is not expensive. No explanation was given to me about the problem.

Reboot and then shutdown Skype, Google Chat or other auto-starting programs which might access the
camera. See if you can start it manually then. If so there often are setting/properties to change the
orientation or flip. There should be a camera control program accessible from your Start Menu. If you
can't access the camera manually then check with Acer Support and their on-line documentation and
drivers.

Check with Acer Support - they might answer an email about how to start the camera without charge.

I found some interesting information about your camera. It turns out that the camcorder will only charge its battery if it detects the physical presence of its rechargeable battery pack. Battery detection depends on two physical components. One is a switch located at the top of the battery compartment, The other is a little plastic tab included with the battery pack

My flip video won't turn off or record, won't be acknowledged by PC via USB port - seems to have frozen - screen is black but light behind it showing power is on but can't do anything with it.


To fix, I held the on/off button down for an extended time (around 10 secs approx) until it finally turned off. Left it alone for a few minutes and then turned back on. Worked okay. Also got a response from flipshare support who said there is a reset button inside the tripod space, use a pin to press that and then fully recharge camera via USB slot on PC.

Stuck on Flip Video logo when I turn it on & can't turn off!


Yes this can sometimes happen if the camera2_bing.giffreezes. Use the reset button to recover it from this state. If it freezes more frequently and you experience decreasingbattery runtime, you may need a battery replacement. There is a servicethat can fix common issues like the battery screen, on Flip VideoCameras Flip Video Repair

Flip Video Mino keeps freezing up, can't shut down or upload


At least the following works on my first generation Flip Ultra camcorder (not Mino). Remove battery, put it back next morning. After that be careful not to touch "on" slider switch on the side of the camcorder while Flip logo is still on the screen. I mean turn the device on by using the slider switch and do not touch that switch again until Flip logo on the screen is gone. Doing the opposite (trying to use the "on" switch again while device is still "booting" and Flip logo is on the screen) will lead to the Flip Ultra freeze.

Flip Ultra - freezes at initial Flip screen - will not shut off


I found a fix that worked for mine.
It was doing the same thing, freezing at the "Flip" screen and would not turn off. I did the remove the batteries deal. It worked once but issue reoccured 2 months later and the battery fix didn't fix it.
What did fix it was...
With the camera off, hold down the Right Arrow button and the trash can button at the same time and turn the camera on.
A few seconds later, I was at the start recording screen!!

Good Luck!

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.

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.
