    Is there a way to disable the auto shut off feature when I'm not recording. For instance, when I'm using a tv to display realtime video from the camcorder (when I'm not recording or playing back recordered video) it will shut off after a minute or so. I would just like the camcorder to stay on until I turn it off. Is there a setting that will allow this?

    I think there is a setting for this. Check the manual. Mine does the same thing. A power saving feature that I believe can be disabled in the menu.

    Usually all you have to do is take the tape out and close the mechanism or door. It shuts off to keep from burning the heads against the tape.
