Panasonic camcorder (NV-DS65) - Dew Indicator Problem
I found this on another site, but it WORKED great for me, and was a
VERY easy fix, so I suggest everyone to try it before you go
disassembling your camera. I know this sounds very stupid, but it
actually somehow fixed my problem, so everyone should give it a go:
1) Turn the camera on.
When the dew icon is displayed, take off the battery and then hit/smack
the spot on the camera where the battery goes a couple of times (not
overly hard, but with some force).
3) Put the battery back and
see if it's fixed. If it isn't, repeat the whole procedure. It took me
about four tries but now miraculously my camera seems to be working,
for the first time in about 3-4 years!!!
NOTE: I don't know
what the exact "fixing" spot is, so I just hitted different places of
the battery spot (both the upper and lower region). Take it easy first
and don't hit too hard, see if it works and try again putting more
force if necessary. I still can't believe this solved the problem, wish
I'd tried it back when the problem first occured!
NOTE #2: I
think this fix will probably also work on some other Panasonic cameras
with the same dew problem - in fact, I think the guy who originally
came up with this solution actually had a different camera model than I
do.. I know it's a late reply, but hopefully this helps at least someone!
