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

My Flip Video Mino freezes after taking a video. Once I stop the recording, the screen freezes and then does not alllow me to upload or even shut the power off. The last time it happened, I just let the battery run dead and then it started working again.

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.

When I try recording with the camera a message appears stating that the HD is full. That makes no sense because I transferred everything to the computer what can I do to solve this problem Thnaks for your...


Did you empty the flip? That might be your problem. Just because you uploaded it does not mean its erased. Try reseting it if you have the mino get a pin an push the button in side of the tripod screw in. If you have the ultra take out the batteries for a second then put them back in.

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 - 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!

Frozen screen on recording


There's a hidden Reset button at the bottom of the Flip Mino. At the bottom of the camera, there is a screw base a tripod. Inside of that screw base there is a little hole. Use a paperclip and poke it into the hole. Hold it there for 7 seconds. You may need to repeat this process 3-4 times. This should shut down the video camera.
