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

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.

I have a JVC GR-DX97EK digital Mini DV camcorder.I'm getting a error message that says "Please Wait,Condensation Operation Paused".Can someone help with this problem?Possibly how to disconnect...


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.

Condensation Alert is normal behaviour if you have taken the camera, for example, from a warm heated room to an outside cold environment. This is to prevent damage to tape or camera.
Wait until the camera acclimatizes (no moisture in the camera) to the new conditions and try again.
If the above is not the problem, take the camea to an Authorised Dealer for diagnosis.

Condensation, operation paused


Try running a cleaning tape through the JVC 2 or 3 times and also wiping all around the tape compartment with a long cotton bud soaked with isopropyl alcohol. It cured my problem in Singapore.

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 ).
