    Hey guys, I have a quick question regarding my little Sony TRV-19 MiniDV cam.

    As I've found with all Sony cameras, there is an auto-shutoff feature that causes the camera to shut off automatically if left in Camera mode with no action for about 5 minutes.

    I'm trying to turn that off on my cam, as I would like to use it for live streaming, and can't deal with it shutting off all the time. I can't find any menu option to disable this. Do you have some suggestions?

    Quick answer:
    Eject the tape.

    Most camcorders will stay on if there is no tape inside, mainly for store demo purposes.
