HG20 Head phone/microphone issue

I picked up an HG20, but I'm having an issue with it. Even though I set it to AV output (vs headphones output) in the menu, when I switch it to recording on the mode wheel, the headphones icon appears on the screen. When I plug in an external microphone, the "Off mic" icon appears on the screen next to the headphones icon.

Any ideas what to do?

Re: HG20 Head phone/microphone issue

Did you set it to AV when the camcorder was in recording mode (not playback mode)? I know it sounds odd but I noticed the reverse; I had set the output to AV on playback (so that it would play on the loudspeaker) but when I switched the camera back to record, it put the output back to headphones (and kept it that way when I again switched it back to playback). So it seems the camera only remembers the setting one way...
