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

Camera worked great until the batteries were removed for several months. New batteries installed- would not reboot beyond intial Flip screen. Customer Service advised - remove battieries, wait 72 hrs try again. Worked until it was turned off - then froze at same spot when reactivated. Everything works well when plugged into USB post. Customer Service response - no longer under warranty!

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!

    Didn't have it more than a week before it shot. (And yeah, it's been a few years since I've had it, but ********* I want it to be fixed...!)
    That fix doesn't work for my non-HD Mino. Also tried the "reset" button that is supposedly inside the tripod jack??? Can't find any solutions.
    Cannot believe I ever wasted time or money on this POS.

FLIP Ultra model U1120 will appear to power on (ie startup screen will flash on for a second) then power off. If I connect to USB it will cycle thru this on/off about a second each. PC will not ID FLIP...


This may sound like a stupid question, but did you make sure your rechargeable battery pack is installed??? if they are in there I would try removing and check connections to make sure they are clean and no dirt and then try reseating the battery pack again. if no battery try installing AA batteries, my model U2120 takes those also if you are new to this camera, there is a little dial at bottom of camcorder to unlock the front cover, turn to unlock and the front of the camera slides off to show the battery compartment. maybe the rechargeable battery pack is shot and won't charge so try the regular batteries whatever kind yours takes. good luck!

Remove the battery. Connect the camcorder to the computer's USB port. The computer will show the autostart menu or give a beep. Insert the battery now. Use the 'Safely Remove Hardware' option, stop the device and remove the Camcorder from the Computer. Close the battery compartment. Bingo! The device works :-)

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.

Flip video freezes when I turn it on to record


If the camera2_bing.giffreezes, and if it freezes more frequently and you experience decreasingbattery runtime, you may need a battery replacement. If battery replacement doesn't cure it you need a new motherboard.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.

How do you fix a frozen flip video ultra?


I fixed mine! When I turned it on it only had the flip logo on the screen & it would only shut off if I took the batteries out. I tried everything - holding the on switch for 30 sec, holding the record button & the on switch for 30 sec, deleting every bit of data from the camera, reinstalling the software onto the camera, leaving the batteries out for a month... I took it apart & found a burnt spot on the motherboard. I scraped it with a pocket knife, put it back together & now it works like new!
