SOURCE: My playback on the canon

This is usually caused by an oxidized, misaligned or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair cost low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Thanks for the info. You mentioned factory reset. How does that work?

You should find the reset to factory default option within the camera's menu options.

Try this too: Remove memory card before resetting.
Turn off the camera, and leave the camera without inserting the battery & memory card overnight allowing it to reset.

Forgot my flip camera security code

  • 1 Enter the number you think is your 4-digit unlock code. Do it once slowly, so you don't waste the number of tries you're allowed before the cam completely locks. If you never set a code, try 1234. The factory sets this as the default. If that fails, try the last four digits of your home phone number. That's the default of some network providers. If all these fail, go to Step 2.

  • 2 Click the menu key, which has horizontal lines on it. It sits between the left and right soft keys and above the round 5-way navigation keys. You should now see the unlock code bypass screen. Enter your 6-digit security code. Select "OK." If this doesn't work or you don't remember your security code, go to Step 3.
  • 3
  • Try 000000 as the factory default setting for the security code. If that doesn't work, go to Step 4.

  • 4 Call your network's customer service center. Locked ones usually let you call both customer service and 911. However, calling on a separate phone will make entering the code they give you easier to enter and test while they're still on the phone with you.

    LCD screen is dark with distorted images

    This sounds like the back light has failed. Given that this is only a few months old, I would bring it back for an examination +/or exchange.
