The rechargable battery inside the camera may be bad.

How am I supposed to charge my HD flipshare video camcorder?


On one side of your camcorder is a silver area that has a raised arrow made out of little bumps. Take your thumb and slide that arrow down. An arm should pop out that has a USB connection at the end of this arm. Plug it into a computer or laptop live USB port and make sure the computer stays ON. the camcorder will not charge if computer is turned off. If the connection is good, a RED Light should come on in the front of the camcorder. This light will stay on till the charge is complete. this may be only a short while or could take over night if drained completely.
Don't let the camcorder dangle by this arm - I prop mine on some cases that blank CDs come in to raise the camcorder up to the level of my USB port.

My Flip Ultra HD has a red light that blinks when I try to charge it. It won't charge, what can I do to charge it?


Make sure you use a good USB 2 port and make sure your computer stays turned ON during the charging or it will not charge. The red light should stay on on the front of the camcorder while charging and will go off when charging is complete.
Try a different USB port maybe also. or if using a USB extension make sure it is a powered extension, and if not, connect the camcorder directly into a USB instead of using an extension.
My extension has a light to show that it is a powered extension.

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 just got a brand new flip video mino hd and it wont turn on. i've charged it for atleast 4 hours. when it is plugged in the red light comes on. that is the only response i get from it. any...


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.

Flip Ultra HD red light won't turn off after charging. Camera won't do anything at all. What do I do?


UNIT: ultraHD
PROBLEM:
I just had this problem: I turned it on, started to record a video, but it hung up on frame #1, with the record red light stuck on. And I couldn't do any of the following: restart the recording, play already recorded videos, turn it off, connect to PC.
SOLUTION:
I removed the battery for about 30 seconds, then replaced it. my UltraHD flip works great now.

Willnot turn on


Do you know if the charge light blinks when it charges or like mine it stays on untill charged then goes out, if it is blinking when it normally stays on during charging then it could indicate a fault ( usually with the ccd ) and could prove to be a costly repair if not under warranty, maybe worth getting checked out.

Sharky

P.S. it could also indicate you have a faulty battery or ac adapter

My flip video camera froze.it wont turn on....


Have you tried resetting the camera? Hold down the power button and the red button simultaneously until the camera shuts off (takes about 10 seconds). Then, just press the power button again and the camera should turn back on. I had the same problem; when I pressed the red button to stop recording, the camera froze, and the red light remained on. I tried resetting it like this, and it seemed to work.

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!

I believe that the camera will not charge directly from the computer - testing this theory myself... however I went to Radio Shack tonight and they have them there for 30 bucks (a bit outragious if you as me)
