Camcorder keeps shutting off when plugged in - how to disable power saver?

I was trying to use my Samsung SC-D3D as a webcam and it was working great except the camcorder keeps shutting off after about 5 minutes even though it was plugged in for power and not running on batteries.

I could find no answer from reading the manual and searching online.

Is there a way to turn off the power saving feature?

Slinkystairs,

Simply remove the tape from the camcorder, and it should stay on. If you have a tape in the camera, the auto-shutoff is activated assuming you wish to record to the tape, regardless of the firewire connection to your PC.

On my samsung sc-d353 mini digital cam, what are my options for a battery replacement or charger? It looks as though it has a slot for a nickel shaped battery.


I found both batteries and chargers for this camera by searching Amazon for "Samsung SC-D353 battery".

The coin sized battery will be for memory back-up (keep the date and settings and power the clock).

The camcorder won't turn off. I even take battery out then replace it it is still on


Make sure it is not plugged into your computer. If you have the camcorder plugged in via your USB connection, then your camcorder is being powered by your computer.

Unplug everything from your camcorder and then try to turn it off or take the battery out.

Hello - Canon ZR80 - auto shut off


If you're trying to use the camera as a webcam, just remove the tape. The auto power-off is a safety for keeping the tape from getting damaged.

Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.

Just FYI, www.silentwitness.com has Sony modify the camcorders for use in mobile applications so they don't shutdown. I have no cure for this, but I do know the stock models are programmed to do this to prevent overheating. It has to do a lot with the warranty. i.e. you have a one year warranty. The unit can't (without modifications) run 24x7. Said modification almost triples the price of the camera.
