When the camera's circuits detect condensation on the tape heads, this message is shown and the camera shuts down. This is to prevent damage to tapes, that could stick to the damp head.
It is recommended to leave the camera in a warm and dry place until sufficient time has elapsed for the condensation to evaporate. This may be several hours. Do not leave the camera anywhere too warm that is likely to damage it, like on a stove or radiator.
This issue is commonly caused by moving the camera from the cold outdoors, into the warmth of indoors.
If the symptoms persist, the head may be dirty. try a head cleaner cassette, or failing that, return for service.
These units are known for having bad "operation units", which consists of the switch that selects camera or vcr and the zoom unit. If you try quickly switching back and forth between cam and vcr and at least get a flash on the display, that is problem. Also, you can try slowly moving the switch (very slowly) between cam and vcr and awtaching to see if the power LED comes on at all. I have replaced many of the operation units on this unit.
Leave the camcorder turned off in a place with constant dry temperature with the door open. Take the battery off and wait a few hours like at least 3. This should work unless it is really damp inside then it may take longer. This happens when the camera is moved from heat to cold or cold to hot temperature. Both tape and camera need to be climatized to prevent this from happening.
It sounds like the battery is flat - I realise that you've probably already thought of this, and charged up the battery, however batteries have a finite life and number of charge cycles they can go through, and may appear to be fully charge (According to the charger, at any rate), but they are unable to hold any decent charge.
My suggestion would be to head down to the local camera shop, and ask if you can try a new battery in-store.
