"DEW" is on screen and VCR not working

Sansui Model COM311ADA, AC/DC TV/VCR combo. Manufactured Nov. 2001. "DEW" is on the bottom left of the screen and the VCR won't do anything but load and eject. I've been through the menu but can't find a relative item. I've tried unplugging it but that didn' get rid of it.

When the DEW appears leave tv on for several hrs at room temp. The heat from the picture tube will help remove the moisture.

Is this in your house. do you have High humidity? the dew i bet is in the morning. vcr dont like dew because the tape can wrap around the head and break. also vcrs have a dew sensor. u got to find a higher dryer spot in the house away from walls.. perhaps a tiny cheap fan running on it 24-7 would cure the problem.

Is this set digital ready?

I'm sorry, but this tv is not digital. You might be able to use an inverter that converts 12volts DC to 120volts AC to power a digital converter box.

Sansui TV/VCR 13" color

there is what is called a "dew sensor" in a lot of vcr's that keep you from playing a tape if it senses moisture in the unit because a tape will stick to the video head and get all bunged up. sometimes they go bad and will keep you from playing a tape even when there is no moisture present. if your are electronically inclined you can take the back off and locate the dew sensor, then disconnect it. the constant whirring noise is the unit's way of trying to dry off the video head cylinder. the dew sensor, which is usally located behind the video head, is a dark grey thing about a half inch by half inch and has two wires going to it.
