SOURCE: I haven't used my Canon

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

Condensation


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

This is a fault in the tape transport system can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly, a dislodged pinch roller or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error C 31:22 is caused due to bad Gear assembly, to resolve this issue with the battery &cassette removed try whacking the camera sideways, if after doing this still the issue is not resolved then you’ll have to get the Gear assembly replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Condensation please wait constantly appears on the screen unable to do anything the camera seems to shut itself down it wont even let me load a tape in.it wont record playback nothing.


There is a "dew" sensor inside that is preventing the unit from accepting the tape. This is a safety feature to prevent damage to the tape. If there is any moisture inside, the tape will stick to the heads and get damaged. Open up the unit (eject) and point a hair dryer toward the opening with the dryer about 12" away. Let the warm air flow for 10 minutes or so and try the camera again. If that failes to resolve the problem, then either the sensor is defective or the connections to it are defective and the camera should see a servicer for repair.

Good luck,
Dan

Error message ''condensation operation failed''


1. There is a silver condensation detector in the tape compartment, rear left corner. You can try cleaning this with isopropyl alcohol. I have tried this, and it did not resolve the problem.
2. You can open the camera and unplug the power connector. This will reset the camera, and will resolve the issue for several months. I suggest looking further on this site, where there are instructions for which screws to remove to do this. I have done this, and it has resolved the issued for varying lenghts of time on my GR D30U.

CONDENSATION


Condensation message comes when video head drum got moisture and such moisture can damage tape and video heads. So camera stops function of tape loading and play/ rew/ ff.

Eject and take out tape, if any in camera and blow hot air by hair dryer for 1-2 minutes from at least 6"distance in tape mechanism.

This will evaporate any moisture on video head drum.
and if camera still gives error then dew sensor in camera is bad and you need tech person to replace it.

How long did you leave it to dry? I had a similar problem and had to leave out my camera for more than a day before the problem was resolved.
