Dew symbol on panasonic NV-DS60

Hi, I have a Panasonic NV-DS60 camcorder. when i turn the camera on the Dew symbol comes up and then the camera turns itself off. I've put it in the airing cupboard overnight and also tried drying it with a hairdryer but no joy. Is there anything else i can do or does it sound knackered.

My panasonic camera does the same- from what research I've done online the only method (that REALLY works) is removing the battery pack and hitting the camera (where the battery was at, don't hit it too hard) with the palm of your hand. I didn't believe this until I tried and *poof* it worked back normal.

Panasonic DV mini camcorder error message


Inside is a sensor that detects moisture. If there is dew inside the unit, the tape will adhere to the head and create all kinds of problems. This sensor is there to to prevent problems. That being said, the repair for this could be as simple as ejecting the tape leaving the unit open and letting it dry out. It could also be a bad sensor. In the case of the sensor, the parts cost would be in the $10-$20 range. Add in the local labor rate ($175 here in Mass) and you have the total repair cost. While this is not the easiest repair because of its size, anyone that works on camcorders will find it straightforward.

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

HELP, my panasonic keeps shutting off. Dew? condensation?


Put it in a very dry place, and let it sit for a few days. How is it getting either dew or condensation? Once dried out, keep it in an airtight plastic bag.

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.

2) 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!
