Has anyone disassembled the HDV21X yet? It appears to have the magnet in the LCD screen, but I can't figure out how to get it out.

Yeah, the Aiptek AHD 720p also has a magnet, I had seen some videos about taking the entire thing apart to get this magnet out so it wouldn't turn off when I closed the lcd. But I figured that was too much work, so I just lifted the sticker label covering the power/fwd/bck etc.. buttons, took out the screws, carefully lifted the plastic up, then used some tweezers and pulled the magnet out.

Now it can only be turned off via the power button.

There is no sticker on this one. The image below points out where the magnet is. I can't figure out how to get it open without taking the entire LCD off of the camera.

there are also two more screws on the lcd that you have to get to they are located near the swival that is why that door does not lift you have to take it all apart. only one that I was able to get off without fully takingapart is the IS-DV

Ok gang. I figured out how to defeat the door without modifying the camera. Check this stuff out:

I found some sample material in our hardware lab at work. I folded a piece in half and taped it to the body right over the micro switch. Now the camera continues to run with the LCD door closed.

Woo Hoo!

I'll post some photos tonight when I get home.

great job

remember there are a few magnets in this, one above and near the swival, one at the sd slot that turns on/off the device. and the lcd door. also that when the lcd is now not used a lot of on/off goes to the seliphane button causing more wear.
