Disabling the Auto-Off Power Function on Canon Elura Camcorder in Record Mode
I Have a Canon Elura 65 digital video camcorder as a video input device for the Adobe Visual Communicator 3. I'm not recording onto the Mini DV tape...just using the image to record on my computer. I've noticed that the power down option occurs after a few minutes when I do not record to tape. I want to keep teh camera on so that it continues to send an image to the computer program. Is there a way to set the camera power to remain on or to disable the auto-off function?

First off I don't condone or advise hitting an electronic device but, from the advice of another post I did it and it worked. It shouldn't have but it did. I hit the bottom of the camcorder with the palm of my hand and it worked perfectly afterward.
I tried to look over the camera for 20 minues and could not find any slot to put the USB cable in. I looked over the camera just one last time before giving up and and i found a little pull tab on the front of the camera. I pulled the tab and it opened showing a circular insert (for hookup to a TV) and a USB slot!
I have an elura 65 and I believe this model does not let you download your movies onto the computer in full motion. you can only do it through quicktime or some other similar program using less frames. the higher models: elura 70 etc. are supposed to be capable of transferring full motion film. that's what I understood from the owners manual. hope this helps
You may want to check the record lockout safety switch located on the tape. This button can get moved by accident and the camera will refuse to record on that tape. Also, be sure the camera is in "video" mode, not "photo" mode. Some of Canons camcorders have a digital still camera mode which stops the camcorder from functioning because the photos are being recorded to a memory card and not your tape, please check this swithc as well.
