My Aiptek charges fine, but *is* finicky about turning on while plugged into AC power via a USB-to-AC charger. That makes it hard to record of TV. Anyway, if you're having problems turning on your Aiptek, at least make sure you (1) unplugged the USB and/or any other cables, and (2) at the same time tried taking the battery out and putting it back in before powering on.

Did you do the Setup when you first started it? by holding the red button and following prompts? (to set up Language, date etc.) - if not try that. if yes, have you tried recharging it? Mine takes about 7 or 8 hours to fully charge (the red light will come on then when fully charged that light goes out) - it appears you have Ultra HD like me, so you should also be able to try some regular AA batteries in place of your rechargeable just to try that. If it works then, it is your rechargeable battery pack - either no good or needs charge. also when plugged into USB that red light should come on on front of the camera and if you look at the screen it should show a battery icon with a lightning bolt over it, shows the battery -how much charged. after 6 or so hours, press your red button and look at the screen - it now should be showing a battery icon that should by now be mostly Green and almost fully charged. While charging the unit, Flipshare software comes up on your computer, "X" out of that software, so your camera will charge faster. My camera was doing similar things but I've had it a long time, and regular batteries worked, So I ordered a new battery pack and it has been fine since. Good Luck!!!
here is link to "what to do if battery not charging"
A charging battery's light is red. If it turns green then it means it is fully charged. Since you had stored your battery for a while, try to charge it by using a battery charger to kickstart it. It should work. Whatever transpires let me know. thanks and rate this answer.
the pc function means that it is connected to your computer this is good because now you should be able to upload pics and ect...the red light is simply to show its charge level and is always on when plugged in to computer also there should be a switch on the side to change from camera to charge if its on charge and the light is red then its carging and it will turn green when its done.
I have the same problem. Worked for 3 years and now the battery charges to green but goes dead immediately. I've changed batteries. Its the camera not the batteries. Works fine plugged in. Obviously the cameras are not charging the batteries. Canon must know but I cannot find a fix and warranty is over. I guess buying the expensive camera of the day isnt always assuring you of quality.
I opened up mine today and found out that all you needed to do was put the plastic gear back into place and it's A ok. Open up the camera and when you're facing the front, check the little plastic compartment on the top right to see if the gears are in place. I fixed it and everything is A ok now. :)
