    When switching on myGR-D31EK it states please wait, condensation operation paused.

    Switch off allow more than one hour to pass in a dry location.

    The same problem re-appears when starting.

    Please advise on a solution.

    Hi, we have the exact same problem. Is this a latent manufacturing defect. It seems way too common for it to be anything we ourselves did or neglected to do.



    I'd appreciate any advice (other than the hairdryer - tried that already). Also, one person said JVC fixed the problem even out of warranty - what did this cost - I suppose that doesn't matter when you've no moneyto spare whatsoever :)?



    Thank you so much for any help you can provide.



    Mickey



    Any help or replies please send to michelle.irons@yahoo .com

    As soon and Camera is switched on, get message "PLEASE WAIT - CONDENSATION, OPERATION FAILED".

    It did reset for a while when I found a sight describing how to get inside and remove a cable which reset the processor.

    Is ther an internal battery that need changing, or a more permanent fix?

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 JVC Gr D31 EK recorder is displaying a message sayng Condensation Operation Paused.and returns the tape when I try to insert it. My daughters wedding is this weekend please would you advise me what to...


Hi!

You get this message because moisture got into the camera. Simply keep it for few hours in a warm and dry place (even under direct sun beams, but in this case please COVER the lens).
The moisture will slowly get out from the camera and it will work again.

Such condensation (moisture) can get into the camera when moving from cold to warm environment, exactly like people wearing glasses know it happens when they come inside a warm room from the cold outside in winter.

Good luck, and please let me know if it worked.

Jvc gr d50.. "condensation, operation paused"


Set it in a bowl of rice for a couple days or leave it out in the open air till it works again. Do not use a hair dryer or any type of pressurized air source. The rice works for cell phones that take a dip in a water source too.

Condensation operation


I found instructions with pictures on fixing this problem online at
http://www.freewebs.com/ltooz/03jvcgrd70u.htm
The process involves taking the camera apart.
Other forums I have looked at have mentioned waiting the error out or allowing the camera to air out.
