SOURCE: Camera software corrupted??

I had the same problem with my flip mino HD. Here are the steps I took to fix it.

1. Adjust the power options on your laptop to ensure it does not sleep/hiberate ever.
2. Reset the camcorder by inserting a paperclip into the hole in the tripod mount. Hold the paperclip in there for about seven seconds.
3. Then immediately plug the flip into the cpu.
4. You may not see anything besides the little blinking white light on the USB arm for a while (about 30 minutes maybe) but leave it in.
5. Eventually it should spring to life and show the recharging battery on the little screen (the Flip Share program may start too.)
6. Leave it charging until the little white light stops flashing - full charge about 3 hours.
7. You can then remove the flip and change the power settings back to normal.

Go to camcorder Menu and enable USB Streaming option.

Remove the battery. Camera will turn off. Put the battery back in, hopefully it will restart. Worked for me. Good luck.

SOURCE: My Vado HD would not

You have to pull the battery and then put it back in. Don't plug it into the computer unless its on, otherwise it won't turn on when you unplug it.........not sure why it does that.

My wife recently picked up a VADO HD video camera, and it simply won't turn on. The image of a charged battery appears on the camera's screen, but the camera itself will not turn on when the "On"...


Pull the battery. Put the battery back in. Press on. Don't walk away. Why? Because in 3 minutes of inactivity, it goes to a standby mode. If you succeed in getting it on, while it is on, plug in into the computer. Avoid plugging it into the computer when it is off.

It might have a bad battery even it it appears fully charged. The following source may have a battery for this:

Digital Camera Turns oFF,While viewinq pictures or while taking 1


hi...ensure that the camera is turned on. If applicable, ensure the lens cover has been removed before taking pictures. the LCD backlight is turned on by pressing the DISPLAY button several times until the screen appears. Depending on the camera model, the DISPLAY button may be labeled as DISP or with a display icon. This button could be a standalone button or it depends upon the camera model..... If operating the camera with a battery, ensure the battery is fully charged. 
Ensure the battery is inserted properly in the camera. 
If operating the camera with the power adapter, ensure it is plugged into a working AC outlet. 
Ensure no Audio/Video (A/V) cables are connected for viewing pictures on a TV; the LCD screen will not display when an A/V cable is connected. 
Perform a reset procedure on the camera....

thank u rate me!!!!
