Over time it should dry. Chance of moisture in other parts of camera? Suggest removing batteries and not using at all until you are sure no moisture inside that could cause electrical damage. My Powershot fell in a river while hiking and simply let it dry out over a few weeks. The screen has internal blemishes, but that doesn't affect the photographs.
Has this camera encountered any water or moisture? Sounds like the Ribbon cable to the option panel is either loose or has been compromised. It could have come loose after a drop or hit, compromised cables are results of water damage or moisture damage.
Please remove the battery and use an hair dryer to warm very carefully so as not to damage the camera. Keep it off for a long time so that every trace of moisture is lost.,However if the battery was put in before removing traces of moisture, there is every possibility that the camera electronics could be damaged. In such case you will need to remove and clean/dry the boards , use soldering iron on components to remove trapped moisture underneath, repeat the work to ensure there is no traces of water. Now set this back and try , If the same error comes abck, I am afraid the camera electronics section has encountered a defect which might need a replacement. Get help from the Sony serrvice centre, take estimate and decide. Hope this helps you . Good day
Remove whatever you can without using a screwdriver, ie, battery and card etc. Then use your hair dryer on it without heat. Keep blowing air into it for sometime. You can do it in spurts too. Stop and go procedure. Then, reinsert all the items that you removed. Power on and see if you still get the moisture icon. If yes then you need to take it to a repair shop. The circuitry may be faulty.
If moisture condensation has occurred, remove the recordable media (tape) and then turn off and leave the media compartment open for the hour the camcorder is turned off . The camcorder can be used again if the warning indicator does not appear when the power is turned on again.
Moisture condensation normally occurs when the camcorder is brought directly from a cold place to a warm place. It can condense inside the camcorder, on the recording media, or the lens and cause a malfunction. To prevent moisture condensation when you bring your camcorder from a cold place into a warm place, put your camcorder in a plastic bag and seal it tightly. Remove the bag when the air temperature inside the plastic bag has reached the surrounding temperature.
If moisture is in the lens, it is inside the camera. Best to remove the battery or batteries and let it dry out in a warm area for a few days. This may not remove the moisture like taking the camera case off. This may be a job you may not want to tackle. Corrosion will eventually cause problems within the camera. It may be that the moisture inside may already have damaged some parts or components or caused a short.
Remove all batteries. Let it completely dry before trying to restart. If it doesn't, you probably have lost it. I've had about 50% luck when this ever happened to me whenver water comes into contact with cameras, camcorders, laptops, etc. You can also try putting a dessicant like moisture stop in a tight container along with the camera for a few days. Sometimes that will remove all moisture. There are also sprays made that remove moisture. I think Radio Shack sells one. Hope this helps.
1. There is a silver condensation detector in the tape compartment, rear left corner. You can try cleaning this with isopropyl alcohol. I have tried this, and it did not resolve the problem.
2. You can open the camera and unplug the power connector. This will reset the camera, and will resolve the issue for several months. I suggest looking further on this site, where there are instructions for which screws to remove to do this. I have done this, and it has resolved the issued for varying lenghts of time on my GR D30U.
Camera gives Moisture error sign if it really have moisture condensation inside or its moisture sensor itself got defective.
if moisture is inside, blow hot air in camera mechanism for 5-6 minutes by hair dryer (not so closed with mechanism) and check / test.
If problem still exist it means moisture sensor is defective and i know its Sony high-end model camera and know how to fix it yet I would recommend to take camera to Sony Service center for proper repair.
