I cant get my tape to play for longer than 3 seconds.. or record for 3 seconds..it always shuts off.. Any advice, cause the camera is in mint condition?


That monster looks old. My guess is that the battery is not holding enough of a charge and may need replacement. Can you plug this into the wall for power? Are you getting any error codes?

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.

Hello. We have a Flip HD video camera. After


I have this exact same problem on my Flip all the time. The only solution I've found is that you have to unlock it, open up the battery pack on the front, take it out and put it back in. Then it turns on. I've had this problem with two different Flip HDs, so I think there's a bug in the camera -- it only happens after I've plugged it into the adapter on the computer and then taking it off.

Tape stuck in camcorder


The way I can get a tape unjammed on my Sony camera is to remove the battery, plug the camera into the AC charger that is plugged into the wall outlet. Then power the camera on, wait a few seconds. Then unplug the charger from the outlet, wait a few more seconds (camera still in "on" position) and then plug it back in. I have used this method at least 3 times to get the camera to release the tape.

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!
