Just fixed mine. The flashing red icon tells you that the backup lithium button battery CR1616 is bad. Take the main battery out and behind the battery you will see a little plastic tab to open to gain access. Battery preserves settings when main battery fails.

The blinking red light is normal. It tells you that the camera is plugged in and charging.

I have a flip slide hd S1240W that has not been charged up in a long time. I have tried to charge it and attempted to reset and then charge. All that is happening is a red flashing light but nothing at...


Try removing the batteries, plugging into your computer, popping the batteries back in, and removing. Wait 5 minutes, and plug back in! This should have an affect!

I'm having a hard time getting my Flip HD to charge. It is brand new and this is the first time I've had to charge it. Sometimes the red light is on and steady and other times the red light is flashing. ...


I had this charging problem with 2 new Flip Ultra HD cameras...red light flashing..nothing on the screen after plugging in the USB port.

I removed the battery..plugged camera into USB port..pc recognized the camera... installed flipshare software..updated software...plugged battery back in..all good.

Why on earth the book doesn't mention these steps is beyond me.

The red light flashes when its charging


Had this problem myself and found that the voltage of the battery was too low for the camera to charge (2.8 volt,s)
I manually charged the battery up past 3 volt,s then put it back in the camera and plugged it in--the light did stop flashing and did finaly turn green.
Or just get an external charger online for cheep.

My glowbouy flashes green and red...what does this mean


According to the owners manual for these swimming pool lights, this is what each colored indicator means. Hope this helps.


Solid green
The battery pack is fully charged.
Slow flashing green
The battery pack is almost fully charged.
Slow flashing yellow
The battery pack is half charged.
Medium flashing yellow
The battery pack is less than half charged.
Fast flashing yellow
The battery pack has almost no charge.
Fast flashing red
A charging error has occurred and the light should be unplugged and then plugged back in. If the Fast Flashing Red persists after several attempts, the battery condition is questionable.



Also in the trouble shooting guide, it mentions this:


Problem: Red Indicator Light Is Flashing While Charging

Solution:
A red flashing indicator light when charging indicates a selftest
error condition. Unplug the product and plug it in again.
Try this several times; if the indicator light continues to flash
red, unplug the GlowBuoy and take it to an authorized service
depot.

Battery wont charge


This camera not charged via PC, you can charge the battery only with wall charger(comes with box).When camera is plugged to PC, you can´t use it as a camera, only as a memory card.You can watch your stuff in PC( PC recognise a camera as a flash memory, no more).

So, this is normal..Charge your camera with wall charger(Full charge Red light not flash!, if light flashed camera is charging) Unplug and use as usually!
