HI,
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.



1- Turn off the cammera.

2- Unplug the AC/DC Cable from the wall

3- Take off the Battery

4- Open the Tape holder.

5- Hold a portable light bulb around 60Wats (turned on of course) nearby the tape holder like for 10 or 15 min. to warm it up.

PS: If you play any tape and the picture looks like damaged, it might be because it's not dry enough, so repeat the step 5 to finish.

THANK YOU,
VIJAY

When trying to record or replay, I'm getting an error message that says "Please wait - Condensation, Operation Paused." I've waited now over a week & still getting the same error...


Put the camcorder in a warm dry place for a few hours, there is moisture inside the unit, that triggers the humidity sensor and shuts the camera off. If after drying the camcorder for a reasonable time it still will not function you will need to get it repaired.

Condensation, operation paused


you can try gently drying it with a hairdryer not too close or too hot but try to get the moisture out that is causing your problem. this could have been caused by coming in from the cold to a warmer room. this should fix it.

CONDENSATION


Condensation message comes when video head drum got moisture and such moisture can damage tape and video heads. So camera stops function of tape loading and play/ rew/ ff.

Eject and take out tape, if any in camera and blow hot air by hair dryer for 1-2 minutes from at least 6"distance in tape mechanism.

This will evaporate any moisture on video head drum.
and if camera still gives error then dew sensor in camera is bad and you need tech person to replace it.

Jvc comcorder getting error message "condensation, operation paused"


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, Operation Paused


The only thing you can try is to dry it out completely. Open every possible port to the interior, and put it near a dry-heat source. If the moisture is reasonably near a surface it may take a day or two -- if it is in a semi-sealed place it may take forever for the condensation to evaporate out. There's nothing more you can do but have patience and keep trying it to see if the error goes away over time, possibly a looong time. Before you bring it inside from the cool outdoors, you should seal it in a plastic bag until it warms up -- that way any condensation will form on the outside of the bag and not inside the camera.
