Give it a good wack. .. . with a wooden kitchen spoon.. try hitting the bottom of the camera or where the battery is attached - this will fix the problem. Believe it or not! Now don't brake the camera. .
it will get rid of the problem. Just a good wack. Believe it . . or Not. (make sure power is off and make sure there is no charge left on the battery if you are going to hit it in the battery.

Condensation, operation paused


you can try gently drying it with a hairdryer not too close or too hot but try to get the moisture out that is causing your problem. this could have been caused by coming in from the cold to a warmer room. this should fix it.

You have condensation on the video head that will casue the tape to stick to it. You need to bring the camcorder to room temp for about 30 minutes. I have never personally seen it but that is what its trying to tell you.

Condensation operation of camcorder paused


Condensation problem is a common on newer camcorders. It is the sensor on the board that detects the condition of humidy. If you have not wet the camera or stored it in the humid area, the sensor or components around sensor is faulty. You can try to dry any humidity using hair dryer at medium setting in about 6 inches away for less than 5 minutes toward inside of tape loading area (make sure loading mech is at opened position). If this does not work, take it to recommended local camcorder repair facility for a diagnostics. Good Luck. CRJ

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.

Jvc comcorder getting error message "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

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 ).
