It probably means that a moisture sensor has tripped inside the recording mechanism.
Did you take the camera from a cold (i.e air-conditioned) place into a warm place?
Generally waiting 'til the camera has warmed up and whatever moisture inside has gone away will let you use the camera again.
Try warm air from a hair dryer over the mechanism with the cassette door open for a couple of minutes. do not over do it. The dew sensor is sending an active signal to the control cct to prevent tape damage in use.
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 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.
