Wont hold charge, light comes on though

It acts fine when i plug it in, and will work that way, but it will only hold a charge for a little while, maybe an hour, and then it wont come on. Plug it back in, the light blinks like its charging, but it still wont hold the charge. Do I need a new battery? Or is it the camera.

ANY help is appreciated.

The battery or charger might be bad and need replacing. Do you have a different USB port available? It's possible the port you are trying to charge from is not powered.

Camcorder wont charge

Try cleaning the brass tabs on the battery and the point of contact brass in the camcorder. Use a soft brass brush (gun clean kits at Wal-mart carry them in all sizes). I do NOT recommend useing steel wool because steel wool will leave little bits of itself behind and cause shorting out

My flip video camera wont turn on....

Have you tried resetting the camera? Hold down the power button and the red button simultaneously until the camera shuts off (takes about 10 seconds). Then, just press the power button again and the camera should turn back on. I had the same problem; when I pressed the red button to stop recording, the camera froze, and the red light remained on. I tried resetting it like this, and it seemed to work.

Battery wont charge

This camera not charged via PC, you can charge the battery only with wall charger(comes with box).When camera is plugged to PC, you can´t use it as a camera, only as a memory card.You can watch your stuff in PC( PC recognise a camera as a flash memory, no more).

So, this is normal..Charge your camera with wall charger(Full charge Red light not flash!, if light flashed camera is charging) Unplug and use as usually!

Camera will not charge

If you know someone who has electrical testing equipment, they can test the charger to see if it is still putting out a charge. I doubt it is the battery because you said the charge light doesn't light when the unit is plugged in. Other than that, sounds like a bad component inside. Get it checked by a pro because you can get zapped or ruin something by poking around inside if you don't know what you are doing.

Not able to record the image

I had a similar thing happen to me...the video would not come one when I turned it on, but the audio would work, and it would play back tape fine. I happened upon the following solution (though I don't know how long it will last). I charged the camera, and then noticed it worked fine when the charger was plugged in. As soon as I unplugged it, the video would go black. So...I plugged it in, turned it to record, and unplugged it, and it worked! Almost like something got reset. I have no idea how long this will last, or if it means the battery is going...but, give it a try!
