JVC GR-AXM225 display indicators

Thought maybe someone could help me with this - I have an older JVC video camera JVC GR-AXM225 (VHS-C)that I am trying to use just to send a video signal remotely - not record. If I don't start to record within 5 mins. of turning the cam on - it shuts off automatically. If I remove the tape - the camera stays on, but I have a tape indicator icon that flashes and is part of the video signal. Is there anyway to get rid of the screen indicators or foot the camera so that they don't show??

Are you on battery power or plugged in?

Many times the "Timeout" happens to conserve battery power - but does not happen what plugged in to AC... I don't know if this will help, but it is worth a shot...

Presuming this works and the camera does not shut off - BUT there is no AC available, take a look at one of those portable battery power car-jumper thingys. There are those out there with an AC outlet and the camcorder has a low enough power draw where it should last quite a while...

The time-out on this camcorder happens both on battery and plugged in - I think it's to save the tape drive. If I remove the tape - the camera stays on (no time-out) but the tape warning flashes as well as the EP/SP shows on the screen. Since I'm using this to broadcast outside in the cold - I don't want to record, while transmitting, so I'm hoping there's a way to get around having these indications on the screen??

since you aren't recording - just transmitting...

transmitting only....

I don't want to use a security camera - because I'm not going to have a monitor where the camcorder is - so I want something with it's own screen. I was hoping to find a way to eliminate the problem with this camera.
