Locate your system in the room where you intend to regularly use it. Before connecting power/"switching on", allow at least two or three hours for the system to reach room temperature. If the system was stored in a location cooler than its operating conditions then moisture will have formed on circuit boards and components - this presents a risk of short circuit conditions. Some sytems factor temperature/moisture balance into boot conditions.

My camcorder is model GR-D20E. When I turn it on, there is error msg on the LCD screen: Please wait. Condensation, operation paused.


Hi.

The camera has got moisture inside it and that is why you getting the message on-screen.

I suggest you find a dry warm place to put the camera in for about 24 hours for the camera to dry out. Take out the battery when you do this.
The condensation should have dried up after 24 hours and should be fine after that.



Regards.

1. "please wait condensation operation paused"


This is usually caused by a failed component in the moisture detection circuitry within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Please Wait Condensation, Operation Paused


This is often referred to as DEW and is a sensor inside the camera that detects moisture. You can hasten the removal most times by warming the camera with a hairdryer on medium setting and not too close to the plastic case. When you store the camera store it with a few of those little bags of silicone crystals that come in many packages that we just throw away.

Following message is displayed on screen Please wait condensation operation paused


Hi FixYa !

My problem seemed to be like so many others, i.e. dirty or defective sensor.

One solution, was to turn the camera on, with the charger connected, and leave it on.
After app. one hour, the fault disappeared, and the camera was functional again, but the next day, I had to repeat the operation again!
Is there any where "cleaning the sensor" is descriebed?

Condensation operation


I found instructions with pictures on fixing this problem online at
http://www.freewebs.com/ltooz/03jvcgrd70u.htm
The process involves taking the camera apart.
Other forums I have looked at have mentioned waiting the error out or allowing the camera to air out.

Condensation operation posed


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

Condensation


This is a bad or dirty dew sensor, a common problem with this model. It's not a user correctable problem. Your local camcorder repair shop should take care of it ( under $100 ).
