Eject the tape. Leave the tape carriage open. Power the unit off and tent it with a light linen cloth for about 20 minutes in a warm but obviously low humidity area. Emergency/ short time approach: Clean hair blow-dryer. Set for warm/low heat. Turn on and "wave" the warm air into the tape mechanism section about 18 to 12 inches away from the camera's open gate/door. Bake for 3-5 minutes..

Dew detected DISPLAYS ON SCREEN



This is usually caused by a failed component in the moisture detection circuitry within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

Hi,
The camera is telling you that there is moisture inside the unit, place the camera in a warm dry space for 24 - 48 hours to dry out, it should be fine after that.

DEW DETECTED / EJECT TAPE


I know that this sounds odd but the fix is to remove the battery and hit the camcorder on the back (where the battery was) with the palm or your hand. Put the batter back and it will work. I found this soluation a a CNET web site solution. I don't know why it works.

Dew detected


This may sound stupid, but it worked for me.

Turn your camera on. When you get the dew detected warning, take your battery off and just hit the spot where your battery was a few times with your palm, not too hard, but not really soft. Put the battery back on and it should be fixed unless you actually do have a dew problem!

If that doesn't work, try drying it out with a hair dryer.

Panasonic camcorder (NV-DS65) - Dew Indicator Problem


I found this on another site, but it WORKED great for me, and was a VERY easy fix, so I suggest everyone to try it before you go disassembling your camera. I know this sounds very stupid, but it actually somehow fixed my problem, so everyone should give it a go:

1) Turn the camera on.

2) When the dew icon is displayed, take off the battery and then hit/smack the spot on the camera where the battery goes a couple of times (not overly hard, but with some force).

3) Put the battery back and see if it's fixed. If it isn't, repeat the whole procedure. It took me about four tries but now miraculously my camera seems to be working, for the first time in about 3-4 years!!!

NOTE: I don't know what the exact "fixing" spot is, so I just hitted different places of the battery spot (both the upper and lower region). Take it easy first and don't hit too hard, see if it works and try again putting more force if necessary. I still can't believe this solved the problem, wish I'd tried it back when the problem first occured!

NOTE #2: I think this fix will probably also work on some other Panasonic cameras with the same dew problem - in fact, I think the guy who originally came up with this solution actually had a different camera model than I do.. I know it's a late reply, but hopefully this helps at least someone!
