More than likely, the flexible cable that goes between the body and flip out LCD panel, needs to be replaced. Time to seek Professional service. We can help:

When I turn on my Flip Video, it just goes to a black screen.

Most often it's the batteries. Many people will test a set of batteries in one of two ways,

1) With a volt meter and each battery reads 1.5 volts (or close to it)

2) Or in a flashlight and assume that if the flashlight is bright that the batteries will work in the Flip.

The Flip draws current that a volt meter does not check and it draws much more current then a flashlight needs to operate. So that is my first suggestion is to buy fresh batteries and try that.

The CCD may have gone out. You'll need to take it to a shop. Check the lens and make sure it's not covered.

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.

Screen shows black at top and bottom from flip video hd

I think you can use doremisoft flip converter that can crop your black bars and other addition editing functions, such as cut clips, join videos, add special effect and so on.

With new flip camcorder can get sound on the tv video playback but no picture. Help! p.s. have a new panasonic viera

Hi lois -
I hope this answers your Flip question or helps anyone having this problem of thier Flip having no display but it still has sound coming out. My experience is with the Flip that takes batteries not the Mino, I have the Ultra Series. I use rechargable batteries and everytime they run out I know it becaue my video goes black or I get weird lines on it and mostly black. If your batteries are low, you are supposed to get a warning light telling you, but my batteries often die so quickly there is no warning. It will go from operating fine to black screen without any 'batteries are low' indicator. Also, if you can watch video (or just have it on) but when you try to record the video locks up and blacks out, it possibly is because your batteries are weak. This happens to me. Overall, I really think my Flip is the coolest device to come out in years. For me and I am sure a lot of users the Flip has made camcorders super simple, portable. A camcorder that I use almost daily now. Its what camcorders should have been like from the beginning, convienient. It has (basically) no moving parts so unless you are hard on your buttons or drop it a lot (mine has survived hitting concrete a few times) there really isn't anything to break. As for the black screen, I say try first things first, get a new set of DURACELL batteries or some freshly charged nicads and try them. I know you probably think it can't be that simple (or I can't be that...). I thought the same thing, "My flip is broken!" Its probably just fine, it just needs some fresh juice! SAM
