Question about Pure Digital Flip Video Ultra Camcorder

Open Question


Hi!, we have a MINOHD model F460B PSV-465 and we had a problem today. We unplugged the camcorder while we were saving some videos from our laptop to the camcorder again and we think we damaged the software. At the begining we saw only color thin lines in the display when we press "play" but we were still able to record videos and play them. And we used it. But then, we shut it off and we could not turn it on again. It's so sad. Could you help us? TKS A LOT!

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 !

SOURCE: 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.

I have a Pure Digital PSV-351 Camcorder, and I was wondering if there was any sort of memory card to use with it, and if so what kind.


The camera is a point and shoot type camera which does not support any kind of memory card. You are just going to have to record the 30 minutes of video and transfer the footage directly to your PC.

My minoHD play back is very choppy on the computer

minoHD playback is choppy, period.
This sort of cheap, so called video cameras, have nothing in the way of motion interpolation.
The result is very jerky motion, especially if you pan or tilt the camera.
You would probably be better off using the video capture feature in your stills camera or mobile phone.
