Press and hold the pin for five (5) seconds.


Remove the pin and hold the Power button for another five (5) seconds.

Any of the two methods should complete the reset process of your Flip video camera.

Then Try Recharging the Battery Using the Flip Power Adapter

When using a power adapter, charge your video camera for two (2) hours to ensure that the battery is completely charged before recording again.

NOTE: The green led on the AC charger indicates that it is charging the battery.

Hi I cannot see a reset hole inside camera mount is it somewhere else?

Expert:  *ElectronicsTech replied 3 years ago.
Unfortunately your model must not have the reset so the power button is the only reset option. Try this, connect the ac charger for about an hour and then hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Flip will not revive any more ideas?I have tried every option sujjested but Flip will not respond. Electrics seem to have gone to sleep David

Expert:  *ElectronicsTech replied 3 years ago.
You can try installing 4 new aa batteries if you haven't already. Make sure the battery terminals are clean.
