Never let your video camera get dew which is dust and debrss fro cheap cassets iner dew so be careful keep it clean.

Noe batteries you need top of the line with a seperate charger making it a non problematic future.

Whot does it mean when dew on screen and turns off just after


"Dew" means there is condensation (moisture) in the camera. The camera may refuse to operate until it is thoroughly dried out.

My video camera keeps saying dew all the time



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.

Hi When I switch on cam, I am getting the text DEW


Sounds like condensation. This can cause the tape to stick and snarl, so the camera probably won't lace up until it drys out. If you leave it in a warm dry place for a few days it should clear up.

The camera wont stay on for more than 10 seconds, flashing message: DEW


Obviously excessive humidity inside the camcorder.


Follow whatever described in the manual.Or if you had already lost it,just let your camcorder in dry place for a couple of days.This should fix your problem.

Unable to start the camera


I had the same problem on a Sharp VL-Z3U
This was what worked for it & yours may very well be the same thing:
The solder joints to the DEW Sensor were "cold joints" which means that the solder joint is defective - is not a sound joint. This means that with temperature variation, the solder joint can intermittently separate and break the circuit, causing the DEW Indicator to come on and completely shut down the camera.
Here is a picture from the perspective of the tape cover being at the top of the picture and the rest of the camera at the bottom. The dew sensor will be on your left.

go to:
http://omlets.tripod.com/sharpdew.jpg

get a real slim soldering iron with a fine point. Open the tape cover and take the tape out. Get a strong light to shine down into the mechanism.

If your camera is like mine was, you may see a brownish material on or around the solder joint - this is flux used in soldering which was applied too heavily, and not heated long enough to burn off. The joint therefore doesn't quite connect the dew sensor to the terminal post - depending upon heat/cold ambient conditions, sometimes it makes contact and sometimes it doesn't .

Heat up the soldering iron - make certain the point is tinned (has a thin film of solder on it). Carefully just touch each solder joint for a couple of seconds - just enough for it to melt, and then quickly remove the soldering iron. You don't want to leave the iron in contact with the solder too long or it may melt other insulation around the terminal. This all probably sounds more complicated than it really is - but it really is just a 5 minute operation. If you've not done much soldering, and feel uncomfortable about trying it, you may want to take it to a radio, tv or computer repair shop and ask them to do it for you.
