JVC GR-D23 + built-in light = weird?

    I got a JVC GR-D23 for xmas and very nice it is too. However, as I was videoing the nippers opening their presents, I thought it was coming up a bit dark in the LCD monitor so I turned the built-in camera light on.

    At which point, the framerate appeared to drop considerably. I thought this was perhaps just the LCD output and carried on.

    However, when I firewire'd the stuff in to the pc, I was disappointed to find the same thing had been written to the tape.

    Am a bit new to this and have been through the manual, but I can't find out what went wrong. Surely it should just capture and store no matter what the lighting conditions? This was in automatic mode by the way.

    A few days later, I was messing around in manual mode, shooting widescreen and playing with brightness etc and it seemed to be doing it then as well.

    Any clues very gratefully accepted :)

    Many thanks
