Did you do the Setup when you first started it? by holding the red button and following prompts? (to set up Language, date etc.) - if not try that. if yes, have you tried recharging it? Mine takes about 7 or 8 hours to fully charge (the red light will come on then when fully charged that light goes out) - it appears you have Ultra HD like me, so you should also be able to try some regular AA batteries in place of your rechargeable just to try that. If it works then, it is your rechargeable battery pack - either no good or needs charge. also when plugged into USB that red light should come on on front of the camera and if you look at the screen it should show a battery icon with a lightning bolt over it, shows the battery -how much charged. after 6 or so hours, press your red button and look at the screen - it now should be showing a battery icon that should by now be mostly Green and almost fully charged. While charging the unit, Flipshare software comes up on your computer, "X" out of that software, so your camera will charge faster. My camera was doing similar things but I've had it a long time, and regular batteries worked, So I ordered a new battery pack and it has been fine since. Good Luck!!!

Reset the menus to default or factory settings. Then test the camera again. Make sure that the battery is fully charged or new. You might consider to buy a new battery (Ebay is a good place) for this camera. Then test. Problems like this can show up when the battery is weak or not fully charged. You may try to remove the battery for 24 hours and then after try it again.
that does not work reset the ipod while it is connected to the power.
You do this by pressing and holding the sleep/wake button and the home
button at the same tme for at least 10 seconds, until either the apple
logo or battery symbol appears. If the battery symbol appears, charge
the ipod until it is fully charged.
This is a very common issue with digital camera on either the lens gears have to be replaced or the lens barrel need replacing. I rebuild these lenses all the time for 75.00 plus shipping and the turn around is normally less then a week. if you still need help fell free to contact me at [email protected]
I had something like this occur with a minot mini video camera only it locked up in the "On" setting, meaning I could see a display on the screen but could not turn it off. I suggest you look very closely for a reset hole at the bottom somewhere, a place where a safety pin or the straightened end of a paper clip could be inserted. If no Reset can be found, then try holding in the Power On/Off for as long as 90 seconds. This may clear the problem. I would also suspect no power due to low charge or no charge on the battery, battery installed incorrectly, or battery not charged up.
Take battery out and clean terminals on Battery and in Camera [An eraer on end of pencil is good for this] Make sure battery is fully charged. or Take to a dealer and ask for a fresh battery to try of it works replace the battery. If none of this works and the camera is over 1 year old [out of warranty] replace the camera.
