How do I defeat Auto shut-off/Power down

Gents,

I'm using an A1 with no tape in it. All it's being used for it's image/lens which goes elsewhere.... not even for any audio.

Since there is no recording going on with the actual unit itself, it will shut-down after a few minutes which is very annoying as footage/continuity is lost and its has to be reset up & optimized for the environment.

Please show me how to bypass & defeat this power saving "feature'!

Thanks,
Bruce

Hi Bruce.............

Pages 79 - 85 in the manual, Using the Customised Functions.

Item 16 - Power Save.

Set it to 01 (OFF) from the default 00 (ON).

Then check page 80 - Activating a Custom Function File

All page numbers based on the PAL manual, may be different to the NTSC version.
