Question about Flip Video F260G Camcorder

Open Question

I have a pink and white Flip Camera. I don't believe it's an Ultra and I know for sure it's not an HD. I've had it almost 2 years, so I believe it's the original model. It will turn on to the main "Flip" screen and then does nothing else. From there it won't even turn off; I have to take the batteries out to turn it off. It does nothing if I plug it in to the computer either. We have put new batteries in and that doesn't change anything either. Please help!!!

Welcome to Fixya

Looks like we already have a mainboard issue here. The blinking light should tell you that unit is charging or recording. If you are not doing anything and the light just blinks right away the moment you turn on the unit then the problem is already the board.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Using my ultra flip camera: when I playback my videos on my computer the images are choppy, jumpy or in slow motion while the audio is fine. what can i do?


Two possible Solutions

1) Have you transferred the videos off your flip, and on to your computers hard drive?

USB ports have greatly increased in speed in the last few years but they can still have trouble playing "live" video directly from the camera.

Solution: Plug in your flip. Drag the files to your "desktop" or "my documents" or any other place you like to store them. Play the files from there.

2)Does the video playback ok on your flip? Or on a different computer?

If so the solution is simple, but expensive. Your computer does not have enough processing power/ memory to play back the video. Full uncompressed video is a very large file and most computers older than 2 years have trouble rendering the video frames fast enough. The HD we see on sites like youtube and even on Blu-ray have been compressed. When the files come off the camera they are not compressed and require alot of computing power.

Solution: Buy a new computer. Sorry I know it is an expensive fix. The good news you don't need anything too fancy. A laptop with a 2+ Ghz (gigahertz) processor and 3+ GB of memory, will do the trick and cost between $300-$500.


Hope that helped

I just bought my 11 year old an ultra hd 2 hr flip video, we cannot even get it to power on, any suggestions?


You need to first Charge your camcorder battery pack.(mine had to charge over night) the first time.  Plug the little arm that extends from the camera into a USB 2 port on your computer and make sure your computer stays ON during the charging, otherwise the camcorder will not charge.

A red light will come on during charge and goes off when charged. If it does not come while plugged in try a different USB port.  Screen should light up temporarily and Red light showing charging on front of camcorder.

 

IF YOU HAVE ALREADY DONE THE ABOVE, and are having the problem, pull the battery pack out and reseat it back in there again.  maybe connection not good.  OH, and I think mine had plastic covering the metal connections you may want to check that too -remove if so----- BUT the entire white plastic around the batteries STAYS IN PLACE do not remove that. 

 

If that still doesn't work I would try regular AA batteries in it if in fact you have The FLIP ULTRA HD it will take regular batteries too.    IF they work - then maybe you got a defective Rechargeable Battery pack and should contact Flip Video at   http://www.theflip.com/en-us/

I have a Flip mino hd. Battery is totally dead and I cannot get it to charge. I have used my computer USB and my friend has loaned me his Flip charger. NOTHING! Should I throw the camera away? I cannot...


Try a different USB port and don't use an extension cable with it either. Make sure the computer you are using is turned ON and stays on during the charging. not sure about the second half of your question, not knowing how to open? and change the battery? If you never opened it to begin with how did you get the rechargeable battery pack into it?? they don't come installed. battery was separate in the packaging on mine. anyhow, there is a little slide button at bottom of camcorder slide the opposite direction, then the whole front of the camcorder slides down and off of the camera. The battery pack goes in. the White plastic that covers both batteries Stays on them do not remove, but if there is a little plastic strip covering the connections remove that. I have the Ultra HD and it also takes regular AA batteries, and you may try that too to see if it will work your camera, if not, maybe something is wrong with the camera.
I am hoping you did not think the rechargeable batteries were already in the camcorder and they got thrown away with the packaging !!!! IF so, then use AA batteries instead. good luck. :)

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.

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.

Flip Ultra HD Error upon pluging in the camera


I got around this error by moving my library to another location. I created a new folder, then went to Preferences->Library and chose a new location (the new folder I created). Flipshare moved all the data, and after restarting the program the problem disappeared. Not a great solution, a workaround.

Flip ultra hd not charging


I had the same problem, but it seemed to be a bit more sporadic. I'd occasionally get the "Charging Paused - Check Battery Pack" error. The battery pack itself looks a bit strange, since the white plastic covers the bottom, right side and it seems that there is no possible way for the battery to make contact with the camera. However, I saw the following suggestion on another site (which the poster claimed came from Flip technical support), and this technique worked for me:

1) remove the battery pack from the camcorder
2) connect the camcorder to a powered USB port on your computer
3) when the "Connected" indicator comes on, insert the battery pack into the camcorder
4) safe eject your camcorder from your computer
5) reconnect your camcorder to your computer
6) the battery pack should now begin to charge within the camcorder
