FIrst, tap the side of the camera with a good thump, and it will remedy the problem immediately.
Then, to prevent it happening again, do the following:
1. Chuck out all those cheap crappy tapes you purchased to save a buck. Get JVC or Panasonic.
2. Chuck out all those cheap generic batteries you purchased to save a buck. Get JVC
3. DO NOT STORE OR TRANSPORT THE CAMERA WITH THE FILM IN, OR THE BATTERY ATTACHED!
4. ONLY AFFIX BATTERY AND FILM IMMEDIATELY PRIOR TO USE. Keep both in their proper containers.
if that doesnt work
i'll tell you the secret. the moisture sensor is a little black square on the side of the drive motor. if you look directly where the tape goes in, the drive motor is in the far back left. it's partially hidden behind a silver pin hanging down from the black plastic cover that goes over the video head. take a long q-tip and dip it in glass cleaner(windex etc) and gently wipe it off. you should see a small amount of black guck on the q-tip.
then remove power for about one minute and allow to dry. it's better to use air to dry it out.
