    My camera began showing the "Condensation, please wait" message several years ago while taping. When I tried using the camera a month later, it worked fine. Now, after using the cameral several times, it's suddenly back to the condensation message and the camera is unusable. No condensation has been near it. I'm 'bout ready to toss it in the fireplace!

No solution but don't throw it away. I had this happen to me, didn't use it for months then it worked again. Of course, now it is back to the same condensation message.

And this camera was no where near any water or other form of condensation.

Hi, when I try to operate with my JVC GR-D20E it displays "condensation, operation failed please wait" Thanks


it is might possible that the main or shutter ic has got some moisture...see a jvc service center in this case and do not operate it for few days..

if you still remember this is not due to moisture problem, the firmware may have got corrupted firmware which has happened due to virus insertion during data transfer with pc or mmc.. see jvc authorised service station for this.
