"DEW" indicates moisture has entered the camera. If you have an ac adapter for it, plug it into the camera and leave the camera on for at least three hours. This will help dry out the camera. Keep it in a dry place.

Leave the camcorder turned off in a place with constant dry temperature with the door open. Take the battery off and wait a few hours like at least 3.
This should work unless it is really damp inside then it may take longer. This happens when the camera is moved from heat to cold or cold to hot temperature. Both tape and camera need to be climatized to prevent this from happening.

Get "DEW DETECTED" warning on screen, powers off.


Also try this, take the bottom cabinet off, with the lcd panel facing you and the camera turned upside down and the cassette housing pointing away from you you will see 2 wide gold cables plugged into the right side of the board, realitively the same size, the gold cable that is between the main pcb and the mechanism assy is the control cable pull it our of the connector and clean it with alcohol, you can even take it one step further and evenly trim just a hair of the cable off all the way across just so that it has a new place to set. This has worked for me over 100 times in the past years. Seasoned camcorder technician 13 years experience.

Dew detection


try getting a head cleaner for the camera and see if that works. If not then moisture mas seeped into the cameras circuits and caused a short circuit. seems like the only way to fix it, is to have it sent back to the manufacturer for repair.

Fix Dew Detect for Panasonic 700X


Dew has condensed in the camera. Eject the cassette but leave the cassette door open.remove the battery . Borrow a hair drier . set it to optimum temperature(not vey hot but but hot enough to cause discomfort when blown on fingers). direct the hot air through the cassette compartment door for about five minutes. reattach the battery and reinsert the tape.

Warning Dew Detected


Where are you keeping that camera? I would return this camera if it keeps happening (before warranty expire).

Dew Detected


dew detect comes from moist that gets on your dew detect sensor. This prevents any moist from damaging the tape or mech. if moist gets on your tape it will stick inside your mech. if you have not been in a moist area then the sensor could be faulty or your main pcb could be faulty.

Dew detected


This may sound stupid, but it worked for me.

Turn your camera on. When you get the dew detected warning, take your battery off and just hit the spot where your battery was a few times with your palm, not too hard, but not really soft. Put the battery back on and it should be fixed unless you actually do have a dew problem!

If that doesn't work, try drying it out with a hair dryer.

Dew detected eject tape


I have the same problem with my PV-DV103. Panasonic wants more to TRY and fix it than the camera cost new. MY advise can the camera and buy one without the DEW option.
Thats what I am searching for presently . If the manufacturer says the camera has a dew indicator in the circuit - buy elseware.

Dew detected on DV-203


I bought my 203 2 years ago-same problem. I FOUND THE SOLUTION! Might sound stupid, but I found it online, tried it and it works! When you get the "Dew Detected" sign on the screen, remove the battery, give it a good palm hit on the bottom where the battery sits. Hit it a couple good times, put the battery back in and voila it will work guaranteed! I thought it was dumb at first, tried it and it works, hell it works everytime. The blow dryer, plastic bag trick dont work because its an electrical error, not actual dew.
