    Anyone figure out how to turn off the green/red indicator light on this camera? I didn't see a way to open the chassis, other than the speaker door and the memory door. Not sure if it's even possible.

    If anyone has done this or knows how to remove the chassis from the camera body, let me know.

    Thanks!

    Don’t think it’s possible on this model. I find it useful and to others looking at it as it shows its on and functional!

    I think I'd be more inclined to neatly cover it with a tiny piece of electrical tape than I would be to disassemble the chassis to try an unhook it. My luck, the LED would be soldered right on the board. :)

    This is actually what I'm doing now. Just didn't know if there was a more elegant way to accomplish it.

    Thanks all for the responses.

    While we're on the subject of LED on cameras, I'm sure we've all mused at the flashing LEDs on Hollywood-made dramas in which every single surveillance camera has a flashing LED. It's like they want to call attention to device that could be covert if we didn't call attention to it. But whatever prompts the screenwriters/producers/directors to do that is contagious......the Hollywood-based creators of magnetic-under-car-GPS-trackers and stick-on-C4-explosive-with-blasting-cap has at the very least a flashing LED but sometimes they splurge with a few 7 segment LED countdown digits. Many of them beep @ 1 pulse per second.

    Of course I'm talking about the Hollywood-created explosive devices that follow the NEC conductor color code regarding battery positive and negative, timer output, DC- return from blasting cap and so on...we don't want to use a wrong color of conductor for a specific function, especially if it will help a bomb tech/explosive expert disarm the device. After all, an infraction of the NEC's section that covers such explosive devices could jeopardize your bomb-making certification.

    Jeez...:facepalm:
