SOURCE: flip ultra hd not charging

I came across the same "Check Battery Pack" message last night when trying to charge my Flip Ultra HD for the first time last night. My husband just took an exacto knife and "trimmed" the plastic around the (-) part of the battery and cleaned the terminal a bit and it works!

SOURCE: Flip Ultra HD won't turn off or on!

It's a bad, intermittent on/off switch. If you're real technical, you can take it apart and try to clean it, chances are it's dirty or the contact is slightly corroded, maybe because of humidity. If you can get a broken "as is" model off ebay, you can swap the parts out, possibly. The last and only easy "fix" to a swith problem, is to spray electric contact cleaner into them, to clean them. There are certain ways that cause less stress to the plastic parts that possibly could be susceptible to cleaner "melting", or damage. This rarely happens, but is only a warning. Now, hold the on/off switch toword the floor, and spray upward, into the switch, pressing the switch on and off as you spray. Blow compressed air into the switch as much as you can, and try to shake the excess spray solution out. Let the camera thoroughly dry (depends on the amount of fluid that got inside), but make sure it's dry, say 10 minutes or so. If the switch doesn't work properly now, the unit will have to be disassembled and further inspected, and possibly repaired or replaced. Other possibilities, such as cold solder joints, or cracked joints can cause similar symptoms, but most of the time it's the switch. Good luck, sometimes you get lucky...:-)

When I press the power button on my ultra hd 2nd generation camcorder, the screen lights up with the flip logo and verbage that says hold the record button for setup. It also makes the correct sound for...

Will the camcorder let you go ahead and complete "SETUP"?? if so, go ahead and redo the setup maybe some glich and maybe doing setup again may get the camera going again? hope so!! I have one also and knock on wood, no problems so far. it may be worth a try:

when camcorder turns on: when Flip Video Logo comes up press and hold RECORD button, to enter setup mode use the + and - to adjust current setting and the left and right arrows to select other settings

good luck!

Have a new Ultra HD Flip Video. How do I know when it is fully charged? Does the red light go off or what?

Hello there,

The Flip Ultra should have a rechargeable AA battery pack.

To verify it is charging, the battery icon will be flashing lightning bolt. The red light goes from red to green the moment it is fully charged. It takes six hours before it gets a full charge via the USB.

Please let me know if this gave you enough information. Thank you for using FixYa.

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 HD red light won't turn off after charging. Camera won't do anything at all. What do I do?

UNIT: ultraHD
I just had this problem: I turned it on, started to record a video, but it hung up on frame #1, with the record red light stuck on. And I couldn't do any of the following: restart the recording, play already recorded videos, turn it off, connect to PC.
I removed the battery for about 30 seconds, then replaced it. my UltraHD flip works great now.

There is a reset button! Get a pin and push into the tiny hole at the bottom - inside the tripod screw hole. Push in and hold. The camera will reset. I called the Flip support - they were great !
