Is it possible to turn on a record with the ns-dcc5hb09 without opening the display panel?
I am going to Hawaii in a month and a half and I am trying to build underwater enclosures for my digital camera and Camcorder. It would be much easier if I could just build a box and not have to worry about flipping up the display to turn on the camcorder. It would also make it the smallest form factor for carrying it in my swim trunks pocket.

I'm having precisely the same problem. I was just a half hour ago trying to take videos of sledding, and would love to be able to record with less chance of breaking the LCD off...

This model will not work unless the LCD panel is opened. The power button will turn on the device but unless the LCD is opened, it will shut off automatically.

yeah this isn't possible.
HUGE oversight by the insignia people....
basically this camera is junk.
the hd isn't really 720p quality, no webcam drivers, no usb cable charging of the battery, stupid sound plays when you turn it on, can't turn it on w/out opening the flimsy door, and the still pictures are ABSOULTE JUNK!!!!
