Question about Pure Digital Flip Video Ultra Camcorder

1 Answer

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. What does the flashing mean? Is it better to plug it into my computer or wall charger?

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.

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 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/

F lip mino hd camcorder wont turn on. red recording light came on when charging but when disconnected from laptop recording light stays on and wont switch on


Same thing happend to me when i baught it brand new, just follow wat i say step by step, look at the bottom of your flip and there is a tripod hole and in that hole is an even smaller hole, take a papper clip and unbend it to make it straight,(thats what she said) then stick it in the small hole until you hear a click like a little button cause there is one in there, just hold it down for 5-8 seconds and do it again for 5-8 seconds then plug it in to ur computer, let it charge and you will be video tapin stuff in no time :)

I had to charge mine for 7 to 9 hours the first time, and make sure computer is left ON or it won't charge and the red light stays lit until it is fully charged. make sure the red light isn't blinking if it is, plug it into a different USB 2 port and don't use extension with it unless it is a powered USB extension.

FLipSHARE software isn't compatible with Vista Aero and some other visual settings, SO, when you plug in your Fllip camera, the FlipShare software changes your desktop settings to go with their camera. They should go back to how you had visuals set before the camera was plugged in once you remove the camcorder. No green light shows when charged, a Red light shows up and glows during charge and when the red light goes out it is fully charged.

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.

My brand new Flip Mino won't turn on. Tried it


Chances are that the battery doesn't have enough charge. I would suggest charging it overnight to see if that helps. Sometimes products off the shelf have been sitting awhile, and the battery is just not charged at all. Also, with rechargeable batteries, they have to be recycled, that is, recharged about 4 times before they charge up to their maximum potential. If charging the battery good doesn't help, I would just get my money back, if you can. Good luck hope this helps.

Flip video won't charge


If you look on the bottom of the camera there is a button that slides from a locked to an unlocked position. Slide it to unlocked and then slide down the back of the camera (the side with the lens) there is a removeable rechargeable battery pack. Remove it for a moment and then put it back in. Try plugging back into the USB port. This should work.
