Open up the tape compartment with the tape removed and try and get some air flow going through it. You may also need a tape head cleaner. if problem persists it may need service. Be careful where these devices are stored as well as when they are being used.
Thanks,
Lee

Camera has a sensor inside to detect condensation
Condensation can occur if the camera is moved from a cold environment to a warm one.

So open the tape compartment, remove the tape to allow maximum airflow and wait for the camera to warm up

Regarding Condensation please wait
This message comes when your camera hasn't experienced a sudden change of temperature, this could indicate a possible fault.


Thanks for using Fixya

I can't figure out how to download video from my JVC GR-D90U Camcorder to my computer through it's usb cable. It is a mini DV camcorder that uses mini video tapes.


From the JVC manual "This camcorder can transfer still images to a PC via USB". There is no mention of video transfer via USB so it seems it is not supported.

When trying to record or replay, I'm getting an error message that says "Please wait - Condensation, Operation Paused." I've waited now over a week & still getting the same error...


Put the camcorder in a warm dry place for a few hours, there is moisture inside the unit, that triggers the humidity sensor and shuts the camera off. If after drying the camcorder for a reasonable time it still will not function you will need to get it repaired.

I need to replace the power adapter for my JVC GR-D90U camcorder. Where can I order a replacement?


From page 5 of the user manual, I see that the part numbers for the power supplies that work with this camera are AP-V11U or AP-V13U.
Searching Google, I find it available from JVC for $36.23
I saw that these power supplies have been selling for less elsewhere on the Internet. Just Google search either model number above to see the best deals.

1. "please wait condensation operation paused"


This is usually caused by a failed component in the moisture detection circuitry within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Condensation


Honestly if you had it fixed for $100 you got a bargan. The dew sensors mount on the loading motor and these do fail. It cound need replacement. make sure the connection from the loading motor is good to the main board.

Condensation


The camera has a sensor inside to detect condensation. Condensation can cause the tape to stick the the transport mechanism, resulting in possible damage.

Condensation can occur if the camera is moved from a cold environment to a warm one. The only thing you can do is open the tape compartment, remove the tape to allow maximum airflow and wait for the camera to warm up and any condensation to evaporate.

If the condensation warning had come on and your camera hasn't experienced a sudden change of temperature, this could indicate a possible fault. I'm afraid this is not something you would be able to fix yourself.
