Question about Flip Video Video Cameras

Open Question

I have an old flip video hd slide that has some video on it that I'd like to get back, but it doesn't seem to get power when I plug the USB into my computer. How can I power up or get the video off?

I had it plugged in for about 30 minutes but didn't get anything at all...does it perhaps need to charge up more? I have it plugged in now.

SOURCE: Brand new Flip Ultra HD. Giving error "Check Battery Pack Chargin

check the contacts on the bottom of the pack. for some reason, the plastic sheathing covers the positve contact of one of the batteries. i took an xacto knife and cut a small hole to expose that end. after that, voila, no more charging problem. i woke up to a full charge this morning!!!

SOURCE: flip Mino HD wont do anything and the light is

You can always try a reset... on bottom of camera inside opening for tripod there is a tiny hole. Take a small paper clip and stick it in the hole and hold to a count of seven. Repeat a couple times.... and good luck.
Simple things first.

SOURCE: Do I have to charge

You cannot charge standard AA Batteries, you need to buy new NiCd batteries, Ace hardware sells them and they are very cheap.

Well I have a flip video camera with 27 videos i recorded but when I plug it into my pc there is no dcim folder??


I feel your pain! I too had valuable videos on my FlipCam and it was no longer being recognized by my Windows 7 desktop, Win XP laptop, or MacBook Pro. I tried everything including hard resets, replacing drivers on my computers, all without success.

However, I finally figured this out! Here's what you do:

STEP 1: Remove the batteries from the FlipCam (If it's the same HD model as mine, there's a sliding unlock switch on the bottom near the tripod mount.. Then the front shell slides down.)

STEP 2: Plug the USB plug attached to the camera into your computer's USB port. Voila! The FLIPVIDEO device now appears and you can go into the DCIM\100VIDEO directory to download your videos. Or, if you have FlipShare installed, this should launch as well.

Two more points:

1. You may need to delete the bad USB Mass Storage Device from (PC) Control Panel/System/Drivers/USB Controllers. Then plug in your batteryless FlipCam.

2. When you put the battery back in, odds are you won't see the FlipCam any more. However, now that you know the solution, just remove the battery to extract your videos and then put the battery back in.

Hop this helps you like it did me!

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!

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   http://www.theflip.com/en-us/

I'm having a hard time getting my Flip HD to charge. It is brand new and this is the first time I've had to charge it. Sometimes the red light is on and steady and other times the red light is flashing. ...


I had this charging problem with 2 new Flip Ultra HD cameras...red light flashing..nothing on the screen after plugging in the USB port.

I removed the battery..plugged camera into USB port..pc recognized the camera... installed flipshare software..updated software...plugged battery back in..all good.

Why on earth the book doesn't mention these steps is beyond me.

My flip mino HD has been charging for 3 hours and will not turn on. I've tried resetting the battery and it still won't turn on


Is it plugged in directly or with a USB extension cable? Some cheaper cables are not sufficient to charge it.

Flip ultra hd not charging


I had the same problem, but it seemed to be a bit more sporadic. I'd occasionally get the "Charging Paused - Check Battery Pack" error. The battery pack itself looks a bit strange, since the white plastic covers the bottom, right side and it seems that there is no possible way for the battery to make contact with the camera. However, I saw the following suggestion on another site (which the poster claimed came from Flip technical support), and this technique worked for me:

1) remove the battery pack from the camcorder
2) connect the camcorder to a powered USB port on your computer
3) when the "Connected" indicator comes on, insert the battery pack into the camcorder
4) safe eject your camcorder from your computer
5) reconnect your camcorder to your computer
6) the battery pack should now begin to charge within the camcorder

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.

Flip video won't charge


If you look on the bottom of the camera there is a button that slides from a locked to an unlocked position. Slide it to unlocked and then slide down the back of the camera (the side with the lens) there is a removeable rechargeable battery pack. Remove it for a moment and then put it back in. Try plugging back into the USB port. This should work.
