Condensation can form inside the camera if you take the camera from one environment to another where there is an extreme temperature change.
Simply wait until the condensation disappears. The warning is to protect tape and camera.

your dv cam sensed a condensation means some moist is inside the unit, to protect the sensitive electronics on it. it disabled normal function of the dv cam. try to avoid placing the dv cam from sudden cold area to hot area, or vice-versa do not use dv cam until condensation message is gone

Condensation operation paused


Remove power from the camera. I remove the battery as well. In the back of where the tapes go, on the left side is a silver component. It's just behind a metal roller that hangs down from a plastic piece over the head. If you look behind the roller diagonally across where the tape goes, you can see a black square on the right side of the silver component. Clean this (gently!) with a moist cotton swab. The swap should get a bit of black gunk off. I'd recommend cleaning it with a dry swab next to remove any moisture. Wait a minute or so to be sure it's dry. Then re-apply power. You should not see a false condensation message for a long time.

I can't get the tape to eject. PLEASE WAIT is the message that is displayed on the screen


Please let me know more about the message, go down further below if there is a numeric code like "03" or "02" etc. Because If it is because of condensation tape can be ejected. Please wait message also appear when you inserted a high capacity SD Card and you are switching from REC to Play and every time you switch cam on, the bigger capacity the longer you will wait, i suggest remove it when not needed. Please give as more details if none of the mention above solves your problem.

Condensation, operation paused


Try running a cleaning tape through the JVC 2 or 3 times and also wiping all around the tape compartment with a long cotton bud soaked with isopropyl alcohol. It cured my problem in Singapore.

That come on because of a humid condition or moisture on the head drum of the camcorder. This is usually cause by going fro a hot enviroment to a cold enviroment. This prevents tape damage or destruction as the tape will stick to the head as it spins. You can open the cassette compartment and use a hair dryer on a low setting for a couple of minutes to get rid of the moisture or just leav the cassette door open for about an hour or until the warning clears.

I CAN'T OPERATE MY CAMERA


Condensation is usually a result of a change in temperature of your camcorder. Like taking it from a warm house and shooting outside in a chilled environment. Or taking the camcorder that was in the car in a cold environment into a warm house. Condesation will make the tape stick to the revolving video head and the camcorder has sensors that know this could be a very bad thing for both the camcarder and your tape. So the camcorder shuts down. The tape also needs to be at the same temperature as the camcorder or temperature differences will create condensation between the tape and the video head.

Eject the tape. Shut off the camcorder and leave it in a room temperature place for a day. Then give it a try.

Please wait -Condensation operation Paused


If the camera becomes damp or cold and brought into a warm atmosphere damp forms in the mechanism which would cause the tape to stick and become damaged or fouled.

leave the camera to warm up for a few hours and the fault should clear.

If not the most common reason is the dew sensor has failed and needs replacing
