Is it possible to turn on a record with the ns-dcc5hb09 without opening the display panel?

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.

Hello JHawkNH,

Welcome to Community@Insignia™!

According to the owner's manual, this camcorder can be turned on by holding down the power button for one second.  You can begin filming by pushing the camcorder icon on the body of the device.

Regards,
John

I tried to power the camcorder on while the display was closed against the unit, but it would only power on for about a second and then turn off again.  The only time that the Power button made a difference was when display was already open.

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...

Hello all,


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.



Thank you,

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!!!!
