2.0 out of 5 stars Flip Video problem, 16 Sept. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Flip F260B-UK Video Ultra Series Digital Camcorder - Black (60 mins) (Electronics)
I very happy with the quality of the pictures and would give it five stars but for the one problem I have had. After using it for five or six minutes of filming the red on/off button stopped working and on the switched the filming on after numerous attempts. When I required to finish filming the only way of stopping was by turning off the power switch. My original purchase was returned to Amazon and a very prompt replacement received. Unfortunately the second one has exactly the same problem.Is there a faulty batch? Has anyone had a similar problem.
I do not want my money returned and only wish to have a camera that works properly.

the red button is quite sensitive - i had this problem initially with my fat fingers. Just tap it to stop filming, rather than holding it down. that should work for you

I am having the same problem. Quite frustrating! Considered sending it back but hate the hassle. It does seem to respond to a pulse (tap) rather than a prolonged push.

I would recommend that you get a set of rechargable batteries and a charger as you will use them up very quickly.
On the whole a great little camera slip it into your pocket or handbag and you would not know it was there.
