Hi. I've had this problem a few times myself when I was tent camping or outside for a long time.

Remove the battery, and see what happens. If it keeps happening, I let it sit out of the bag for a couple of hours in the car with the battery removed.

I would not suggest hitting the camera.

I've got the 203 and all i had to do was take the bat. off and give it a couple of good hits on my palm, hitting the bottom of the camera. At sounds odd, but trully works. On the 203 its an electrical issue. Before doing this, be sure to open open the tape case, and remove your memory card and, if you can, the internal bat.

it worked for me.

Good luck.

DEW DETECTED / EJECT TAPE


I know that this sounds odd but the fix is to remove the battery and hit the camcorder on the back (where the battery was) with the palm or your hand. Put the batter back and it will work. I found this soluation a a CNET web site solution. I don't know why it works.

My mini dv panasonic has a dew detectived


i have the same experience of this "dew detected" problem, try to remove the lower cover (the one where we connect the tripod screws) then look for any loose flat printed circuit pattern, or better disconnect then re insert again.

this solved my problem, hope it can help you

Dew detected


This may sound stupid, but it worked for me.

Turn your camera on. When you get the dew detected warning, take your battery off and just hit the spot where your battery was a few times with your palm, not too hard, but not really soft. Put the battery back on and it should be fixed unless you actually do have a dew problem!

If that doesn't work, try drying it out with a hair dryer.

Dew detected eject tape


I have the same problem with my PV-DV103. Panasonic wants more to TRY and fix it than the camera cost new. MY advise can the camera and buy one without the DEW option.
Thats what I am searching for presently . If the manufacturer says the camera has a dew indicator in the circuit - buy elseware.

Dew detected on DV-203


I bought my 203 2 years ago-same problem. I FOUND THE SOLUTION! Might sound stupid, but I found it online, tried it and it works! When you get the "Dew Detected" sign on the screen, remove the battery, give it a good palm hit on the bottom where the battery sits. Hit it a couple good times, put the battery back in and voila it will work guaranteed! I thought it was dumb at first, tried it and it works, hell it works everytime. The blow dryer, plastic bag trick dont work because its an electrical error, not actual dew.

Dew detected error signal


Dew has condensed in the camera. Eject the cassette but leave the cassette door open.remove the battery . Borrow a hair drier . set it to optimum temperature(not vey hot but but hot enough to cause discomfort when blown on fingers). direct the hot air through the cassette compartment door for about five minutes. reattach the battery and reinsert the tape.
Good Luck,
