Question about Canon ES420V Hi-8 Analog Camcorder
When turning on the JVC Digital Video camera we keep getting a cycling sound with the message "Condensation Operation Paused" Can still take still pictures with it but cannot video record. Can you tell us how to fix it? Who repairs these things in B.C. Canada? Thanks, L Granlund firstname.lastname@example.org
After researching the condensation problem and talking directly to JVC customer support, I've come to the conclusion that JVC makes a defective product and that paying to fix it only throws good money after bad. The solution: Throw it away and never buy a JVC product again.

My canon wouldn't allow tape to go back in, repairer said about $360 to fix, not worth it. Somewhere on this site I read a reply on taking out all the screws or giving it a whack. Having nothing to lose I whacked it a few times & IT STARTED WORKING! So far, so good.

I had that problem a few times, so I wrapped the camera in a clean towel, put it away in a dry cupboard for a few days and it fixed itself.
Not much of an answer I know, but it did work.

If the camera becomes damp or cold and brought into a warm atmosphere damp forms in the mechanism which would cause the tape to stick and become damaged or fouled.
leave the camera to warm up for a few hours and the fault should clear.
If not the most common reason is the dew sensor has failed and needs replacing
