Johnny Angel: I bought the 808 hq30 and it has 3 leds lights. When I turn it on it goes to video mode green light. When I try the shutter button nothing. The power button turns it on and of but does not toggle through the lights. I am trying to figure out. why It records short pieces of video but I am not sure if it records when I shut it off.? It supposedly should blink all 3 lights 3 times then it records by pressing the shutter button. . I am frustrated because I returned it got a new one as the first one was defective. now this one. firm ware update?
TechMasters: i used it for a few hours i took a couple of videos, worked great! and then i took one more video a little later and i plugged it in my computer to veiw it and the led light wasent on or flashing so i unplugged it and tryed to turn it on but nothing happened - no led light truned on. So i thought it must be dead, well im beggining to think thats not the case because its been chargeing for about an hour and it still wont turn on. Please help me with this problem as i am very sad D:

toumei64:+Charles Lohr Thank you for your website and all of the information. It's been very helpful. I'm having a problem, though. My camera starts recording, and then after about 15-30 minutes, it shuts off. I can turn it back on and usually start it recording again, but it always does this, so I only get 1-2 files worth of video (plus a 0-length file for the recording in progress when it shuts off). I don't think it's the battery. The only thing I can figure is that it's the memory card, but I've formatted several times and also tried a different card. I'm about to send it back for a replacement, I think. Have you ever seen this issue? Thanks.
Elektrikovo: Simply and smart... thanx
PLwhyduck: Hi, can you help? Yesterday I got 2 808s, now plugged in to my PC (with my SDCard) and neither of them work. I press >power< and nothing. Should I load'em for a few hours or (better) send back?
neil a: Hi Chuck....Can you help? I have a 808#26 and want to turn off the date time stamp , trouble is I have a mac and can't seem to do it, and ideas would be gratefully received , thanks, neil
Charles Lohr: They are sold with or without an SD (SDHC) card. Usually, do not buy a camera with a card because some sellers will supply the worst (slowest) possible card. For a micro camera, don't buy a generic SD card because the random write speed can be too slow.
fsm83: Does it come with TF card mine didn't?
John Grimes: You get what you pay or people. This is a $5 camera that's made in China.
Charles Lohr: Externally, try a different USB cable and a different power source. Internally, inspect the circuit board for anything unusual. Verify the crystal is securely soldered. Otherwise, replace the camera.
Zaid Rashid: Hey, I have a problem with my 808, When i hold the buttons i get no flashing light, When i plug it into the computer to try and charger it, I still get no L.E.D indication and the computer does not even recognize that anything has been plugged in, It cant be broken and i have hardly ever used it and It has not been through ruff times, Any help?
Charles Lohr: Go to the "808 car keys micro camera review" and see "My 808 does not work. What can I do to fix it?".
LoganE15: just finished charging, and still having problems, any other suggestions? thanks
Charles Lohr: The problem is probably either the USB cable, the USB port power or the flash card. Charge for 75 minutes. The LED is not a reliable indicator of battery charge.
LoganE15: Charged my camera, it is recognized as free storage on the computer, reformatted anyways. It turns on, yet if i push shutter button, it flashes quickly and then starts blinking. Anybody have this problem?
