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.

When on sreen says please wait condisation operation paused wut do i do thank u


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.

Condensation operation paused how do I fix this?


If the camera is working correctly it's to protect the camera and tape.
The camera has detected condensation inside it's body due to a large change in temperature. eg. when you take the camera form a heated room to an external environment that is very cold.
You simply wait until the camera acclimatizes.

Please Wait Condensation, Operation Paused


This is often referred to as DEW and is a sensor inside the camera that detects moisture. You can hasten the removal most times by warming the camera with a hairdryer on medium setting and not too close to the plastic case. When you store the camera store it with a few of those little bags of silicone crystals that come in many packages that we just throw away.

Following message is displayed on screen Please wait condensation operation paused


Hi FixYa !

My problem seemed to be like so many others, i.e. dirty or defective sensor.

One solution, was to turn the camera on, with the charger connected, and leave it on.
After app. one hour, the fault disappeared, and the camera was functional again, but the next day, I had to repeat the operation again!
Is there any where "cleaning the sensor" is descriebed?

Regards pb58

Condensation operation


I found instructions with pictures on fixing this problem online at
http://www.freewebs.com/ltooz/03jvcgrd70u.htm
The process involves taking the camera apart.
Other forums I have looked at have mentioned waiting the error out or allowing the camera to air out.

Condensation, operation paused, JVC Video Camera model GR-D70AS


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

Condensation


This is a bad or dirty dew sensor, a common problem with this model. It's not a user correctable problem. Your local camcorder repair shop should take care of it ( under $100 ).
