What do the letters "DEW" mean on the screen. TV/VCR combo model GOJ 12330


DEW means that there is condensation inside the unit. Turn it off and unplug it for a few hours. The unit needs to reach equilibrium with the temperature and humidity with the room. The TV is cooler than the room and the moisture will continue to be a problem until the components of the TV reach room temperature.

If you fail to allow the TV to reach equilibrium, some components may become damaged by the moisture. If that has happened, resolving the error may take major repairs. Electronics do not like moisture.

I hope this helps.

Manual dew instrucciones


Use a hair dryer to blow warm air into the unit. Do not heat the unit but allow only warm air to circulate so as to remove any dew formation within the unit that must allow the unit to reset the error.

Windows could not finish to format my removable disk


Sometimes this is a faulty flash drive (Assuming that is what you are talking about)
In XP
Try to format it from the command line. Go to START - RUN - and type in the letters CMD in the box and hit ENTER. From there type in FORMAT and type in the drive letter of your removable disk.
In vista/7
click on the START ORB. type in the letters CMD. At the top of this menu a "command prompt" icon shows up. RIGHT CLICK on the icon and left click "RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR".
From there type in FORMAT and the drive letter of your removable disk.

"Dew" sitting on my Video Camera


Dew Formation
What is “dew formation”?
When cold water is poured into a glass,
dew drops form on the glass. This clinging
of water drops is called dew formation.
When dew forms in your camcorder.
Dew will gradually form on the head drum
of your camcorder and make the video
tape stick to the head. This causes
damage both to the head and the tape.
When dew forms, recording and playback
may not function properly.
Dew is likely to form in the following
circumstances:
—When moving the camcorder from a
cold place to a warm place.
—When placing the camcorder in a cold
room which is then heated rapidly.
—When moving the camcorder outdoors
from an air conditioned room or car.
—When placing the camcorder in the
direct path of air
blowing from an air
conditioner.
—When placing the
camcorder in a
humid room.
How to prevent trouble.
When using the camcorder in a place
where dew is likely to form, allow the
camcorder and the video tape to
acclimate to the surroundings for about
one hour.
For example, when bringing the
camcorder indoors after skiing, place it in
a plastic bag.
1Be sure to tightly seal the plastic bag
containing the camcorder.
2Remove the bag when the air temperature
inside it reaches the temperature
of the room.
“Dew” warning feature
If dew forms, the word “DEW” flashes on
the screen, and the power will automatically
turn off in approximately 10 seconds.
Plastic bag
1If “DEW” flashes, remove the cassette,
leave the cassette compartment open,
and wait for a few hours to allow the
camcorder to acclimate to the
surrounding temperature.
2To use the camcorder again, turn on the
power after waiting for a few hours. Be
sure that “DEW” has disappeared.
3Do not insert a cassette while “DEW” is
flashing; this may result in damage to
the tape.
4Since dew forms gradually, it may take
10 to 15 minutes before the dew
warning feature engages.

Bypassing dew sensor on a Sharp VL-Z7 mini DV


- the solder joints to the DEW Sensor were "cold joints" which means that the solder joint is defective - is not a sound joint. This means that with temperature variation, the solder joint can intermittently separate and break the circuit, causing the DEW Indicator to come on and completely shut down the camera. The first problem I had with the camera was on a cold day, so it seemed to make sense.

Here is a picture from the perspective of the tape cover being at the top of the picture and the rest of the camera at the bottom. The dew sensor will be on your left.

go to:
http://omlets.tripod.com/sharpdew.jpg
Then, get a real slim soldering iron with a fine point. Open the tape cover and take the tape out. Get a strong light to shine down into the mechanism.

If your camera is like mine was, you may see a brownish material on or around the solder joint - this is flux used in soldering which was applied too heavily, and not heated long enough to burn off. The joint therefore doesn't quite connect the dew sensor to the terminal post - depending upon heat/cold ambient conditions, sometimes it makes contact and sometimes it doesn't .

Heat up the soldering iron - make certain the point is tinned (has a thin film of solder on it). Carefully just touch each solder joint for a couple of seconds - just enough for it to melt, and then quickly remove the soldering iron. You don't want to leave the iron in contact with the solder too long or it may melt other insulation around the terminal. This all probably sounds more complicated than it really is - but it really is just a 5 minute operation. If you've not done much soldering, and feel uncomfortable about trying it, you may want to take it to a radio, tv or computer repair shop and ask them to do it for you.

Flashing "DEW" Indicator shutting down the viewcam


I don't know if this will help, but when I leave the camera open with no tape in it for a day or so, "dew" goes away. Now I just store it open without a tape in it and have never had this problem again.

Hope this helps.

Sansui TV/VCR 13" color


there is what is called a "dew sensor" in a lot of vcr's that keep you from playing a tape if it senses moisture in the unit because a tape will stick to the video head and get all bunged up. sometimes they go bad and will keep you from playing a tape even when there is no moisture present. if your are electronically inclined you can take the back off and locate the dew sensor, then disconnect it. the constant whirring noise is the unit's way of trying to dry off the video head cylinder. the dew sensor, which is usally located behind the video head, is a dark grey thing about a half inch by half inch and has two wires going to it.

"DEW" is on screen and VCR not working


When the DEW appears leave tv on for several hrs at room temp. The heat from the picture tube will help remove the moisture.
