Default cannot find a way to turn light ON, on hdv-178 (new model)

is it possible to turn the light ON when recording video on the new HDV-178 model?

to see what I might by new model, look here for front and back view http://www.canadiantire.ca/AST/browse/7/Electronics/CamerasAccessories/CamerasCamcorders/PRDOVR~0694605P/Jazz%2B11MP%2BHigh%2BDefinition%2BCamcorder.jsp

in live mode meaning cam is ON. that is the only time you are allowed to turn on/off led light not while or during recording

I can't even turn it on (except for the flash while taking picture)

This new model doesn't have LED video lights like the older hdv178. There's "only" a strobe flash for still pics. If you need video light, there are external LED light available for camcorders and digicams.

Or you could find cheaper LED lights from ebay.
