The internal charger in the camcorder has sensors to prevent overcharging. Be sure to use an original JVC battery, as there is also a sensor in the battery to prevent overcharging and the inexpensive replacement batteries will not have the same sensor (some have NO sensor at all!)., In terms of keeping moisture out, avoid going from an extremely cold environment to a hot one, or vice versa as this can cause condensation to form in the camcorder. If you are taking the camcorder to a place where it might get wet, say the beach or out in the rain, place the camcorder in a ziploc bag to protect it. Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

Everytime I turn my camcorder on the screen shows Dew and then it turns off. I left the battery out for a few days but it still is shutting off

There is sensor inside the unit that will detect dew. Moisture inside will cause the tape to adhere to the heads, causing damage to both the tape and heads. With the unit open, try pointing a hair dryer at it from a distance of about 12"-18". The warm air should remove any moisture. Please be careful NOT to aim really hot air into the unit.

If that does not resolve the problem, then either the sensor is defective or the connections to it are broken. The camera will err on the side of not functioning in order to prevent damage.

Zr80 moisture problem solution ?

Friend, Remove whatever you can without using a screwdriver, ie, battery and card etc. Then use your hair dryer on it without heat. Keep blowing air into it for sometime. You can do it in spurts too. Stop and go procedure. Then, reinsert all the items that you removed. Power on and see if you still get the moisture icon. If yes then you need to take it to a repair shop. The circuitry may be faulty.

yes had this on a few JVC it may be that the moisture has corrosded the dew sensor and will need service. When you store it use those crystals that come in packing of some items They are excellent for preventing this in Video cameras

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.

Camera just won't work!!!

Are there any error codes on the screen? It sounds like your unit has a moisture problem or needs reset. Do the reset first. Remove the battery for about 30 minutes, reinstall and see what happens. If this doesn't solve the problem leave the unit in a dry area with the cassette door open for a day and then try it. If it still will not work you could have a bad moisture sensor (or most any problem) which will need replaced. If you are not capable of electronic repair you will need to find a reputable repair shop. Here a some websites which offer free estimates and may be helpful: or or Good luck.
