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.

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.

Please Wait Condensation, Operation Paused


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.

MESSAGE ON SCREEN


Since water inside of these is a bad thing, these units contai a "dew sensor" that will prevent the loading of the tape if a "wet" condition exists. This can happen if the camera is cold and the room you are in is warm. The humidity on the air will condense onto the camera internals and cause this to occur. Try ejecting hte tape, leaving the compartment open and point a hair dryer at it. Keep the hair dryer a bit away from the unit, you don't want to heat it up, just get some warm air inside to evaporate the "dew".

If that fails to resolve the problem, the sensor itself may be defective and need to be replaced.

Keep us posted.

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
