Got my MinoHD yesterday (Saturday 8/7), had to stop it at the FedEx place cause I had to have it right away.
Right out of the box it had a dead or flickering pixel in the lower right hand quadrant so I chatted with the helpful folks at Flip on their online WebEx chat line. They had me stick a pin (or the end of my earring post) into the little hole in the tripod area, and wait 5 seconds and then turn it on with the power button. I was instructed to not touch the back buttons until it powered on. Luckily, it fixed the pixel right away! YeY! Hope you don't have any issues but if you do, hope this helps.
FYI: when i stuck the pin into the little hole it only went in just a little bit, it felt like a little button that resets something.
