Camcorder is frozen and I don't see a hole to reset

Posted by on

  • jgshine May 29, 2010

    My Flip Ultra camcorder is frozen on at the home page (all it shows is the name "Flip"). I have unloaded all of the videos and pictures and there is nothing left on the camcorder. Also, I have no "reset" hole which to push to try a reset. I have taken the batteries out several times (only way to turn it off), even for hours and that hasn't worked. Any suggestions short of the trash.

    How old is this camcorder by the way? Is it still under the 90-day warranty period? Because you are not alone with this problem. A lot of users are also complaining about this issue and their camcorders are just a few months old. Some ended up contacting Flip. Flip will ask for the faulty unit to be sent and they will try to fix it, but if they could not, they usually send a replacement.


    Try this fix but it would still be best to contact Flip.


    Turn on your camcorder while holding the minus key. Let it power on totally and then test.

    it seams that the switch on button that is placed on the hinges of the screen is out...either not function or stuck ....so you will have to open it and replace ..or see a professional to do it if you are not handy with this..Initial you didnt explained how is stuck ..so I assumed that it is frozen on a digital cause... but in this case is a clear case of physical malfunction..

Proscan tablet is frozen


Check for the reset pin hole on your tablet. Get a paper clip and push it 'gently' in the hole and hold it for thirty seconds. This resets the tablet.
Youdon't want to push hard as there is just a tiny button in there that can get dislodged.

Thier should be two small holes on the player probably on the back one is the microphone the Other is the reset switch. Mic should be labled. Take a straightened paperclip and gently press it
in the hole and the paperclip shoud press a switch on the inside of the player to reset it.

Frozen screen on recording


There's a hidden Reset button at the bottom of the Flip Mino. At the bottom of the camera, there is a screw base a tripod. Inside of that screw base there is a little hole. Use a paperclip and poke it into the hole. Hold it there for 7 seconds. You may need to repeat this process 3-4 times. This should shut down the video camera.

Flip Mino HD Screen Frozen


I had the same problem when it was brand new straight out of the box. Below is Pure Digital's (manufacturer of the Mino HD) response. This did solved my problem.

"Please ensure that you are gently touching the operational buttons on the camcorder rather than pressing them. Pressing too hard, or too rapidly in succession while waiting for a response, can desensitize the touch pad, requiring a reset of the camcorder.

If you find that the Mino has already frozen, we suggest resetting the camcorder.

To reset, simply take a pin and insert it into the reset hole within the camera’s tripod mount, wait five seconds before powering on, and then power on without touching any of the buttons on the back of the camcorder for an additional five seconds.

Please note that resetting the camcorder in this manner will not affect the videos resident on the camcorder; it will simply reset the screen and button sensitivity on the Mino.

Thank you,
Flip Video Support"

I hope this helps.

BTW my Mino HD has frozen twice now (I've had it for 2 hours total so far!) and the reset trick has fixed it both times. It seems to me the buttons are too sensitive or the computer program not the most stable. I hope this is the last of the problems!

If you hold the power button for 20 seconds it will shut off. I had the similar problem where I unplugged my Insignia NS4V17B frozed on the bluetooth initializing screen. I turned it off then back on and it is now working fine.
