Time to return it and next time ask if it supports such use. You do encounter folk that get upset when a product fails to work beyond it's intended use but at least you can return it.
softball games, not recording them at the time, the camcorder turns off after five mins. at first I thought it was to save battery power but it does the same thing with the AC power adapter in. How can I make it stay on longer than 5 mins. I need it to stay on till I turn it off.
