It's supposed to shut off to conserve battery life. The camera will display on the tv screen instead. Make sure your tv is on the right channel for external source (ex/ video front).

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!

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.

Stuck on Flip Video logo when I turn it on & can't turn off!


Yes this can sometimes happen if the camera2_bing.giffreezes. Use the reset button to recover it from this state. If it freezes more frequently and you experience decreasingbattery runtime, you may need a battery replacement. There is a servicethat can fix common issues like the battery screen, on Flip VideoCameras Flip Video Repair

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.

Flip Ultra - freezes at initial Flip screen - will not shut off


I found a fix that worked for mine.
It was doing the same thing, freezing at the "Flip" screen and would not turn off. I did the remove the batteries deal. It worked once but issue reoccured 2 months later and the battery fix didn't fix it.
What did fix it was...
With the camera off, hold down the Right Arrow button and the trash can button at the same time and turn the camera on.
A few seconds later, I was at the start recording screen!!

Good Luck!

How do you fix a frozen flip video ultra?


I fixed mine! When I turned it on it only had the flip logo on the screen & it would only shut off if I took the batteries out. I tried everything - holding the on switch for 30 sec, holding the record button & the on switch for 30 sec, deleting every bit of data from the camera, reinstalling the software onto the camera, leaving the batteries out for a month... I took it apart & found a burnt spot on the motherboard. I scraped it with a pocket knife, put it back together & now it works like new!

My flip video camera froze.it 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.

Flip video won't charge


If you look on the bottom of the camera there is a button that slides from a locked to an unlocked position. Slide it to unlocked and then slide down the back of the camera (the side with the lens) there is a removeable rechargeable battery pack. Remove it for a moment and then put it back in. Try plugging back into the USB port. This should work.
