I had exactly the same problem. It is moisture from a climate change that is causing the problem. REMOVE THE BATTERY - IMMEDIATELY. Open the tape door. Place the camera upside down (and open) on an open heater vent. Let the warm air from your heater flow through the camera for 20-30 minutes. You can then replace the battery and it should work fine again

It presents an error called DEW Detected and it shuts down


The unit is wet or it is too humid to work properly. Try to move the unit to a dryer location so the moister can evaporate.

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.

Dew detected on DV-203


I bought my 203 2 years ago-same problem. I FOUND THE SOLUTION! Might sound stupid, but I found it online, tried it and it works! When you get the "Dew Detected" sign on the screen, remove the battery, give it a good palm hit on the bottom where the battery sits. Hit it a couple good times, put the battery back in and voila it will work guaranteed! I thought it was dumb at first, tried it and it works, hell it works everytime. The blow dryer, plastic bag trick dont work because its an electrical error, not actual dew.
