When we turn the camcorder on there is a message on the screen which says the temperature is too low and we have to wait. We have left the machine on several times and the message remains and the machine don't not do anything. Any Idea on how solve it?

its probibly early signs of condensation or a little damp air with faults of this nature same as lense cap fault and or condensation fault leave camera plugged in and switched on for a week . when camera has been on for a while dont put it straight into a bag or case leave it a room temp for a couple of hours after use before putting it away .
Dear Gmartinez, Could you please explain what you mean by "dew pops up"? Do you mean that you see water droplets in the LCD display or inside the camera somewhere? If thats the issue then make sure that you do not switch on the camera without making sure that the moisture is completely dried. This issue is common if there is a very large temperature gradient .. for example, you might be staying in a hotel or a room where temperature is maintained at 16 degree Celsius where as outside the room, the temperature is around say 30 degree Celsius ... or due to rain or because you took few pictures on sea shore or any other water body.
Remove the batteries and keep the camera in sun to make sure that camera circuits are completely dry before inserting the batteries.
If this is not the issue then kindly explain the exact issue and I would love to assist you.
Condensation is usually a result of a change in temperature of your camcorder. Like taking it from a warm house and shooting outside in a chilled environment. Or taking the camcorder that was in the car in a cold environment into a warm house. Condesation will make the tape stick to the revolving video head and the camcorder has sensors that know this could be a very bad thing for both the camcarder and your tape. So the camcorder shuts down. The tape also needs to be at the same temperature as the camcorder or temperature differences will create condensation between the tape and the video head.
Eject the tape. Shut off the camcorder and leave it in a room temperature place for a day. Then give it a try.
I'm an English guy with the same problem... What you do is keep the power on for a long time, or you charge it up with the charger. Trust me. However, it is very rare for this to occur. There should be a message saying: "Temperature is too low, keep power on." There should be another message reading: "Turn off power and turn on again to check if camera is fully-functional. Thanks for giving me something to do while X-Plane downloads on my Mac OS X.
Leave the camcorder turned off in a place with constant dry temperature with the door open. Take the battery off and wait a few hours like at least 3. This should work unless it is really damp inside then it may take longer. This happens when the camera is moved from heat to cold or cold to hot temperature. Both tape and camera need to be climatized to prevent this from happening.
mine is an everio gz-mg37u and i get that same bulls*** on the screen at every power up. First I tried waiting a while then switching all the switches between camera and video mode, record and watch mode, etc. and one time it worked and the message went away. Haven't been able to do that since.
Now what I do is turn it on, wrap it in a blanket, leave it about 10 minutes, then turn the power off and on again. Works fine for me, and if I turn it off and then turn it back on within a few minutes before it cools down, it works fine. There has to be a messed up sensor in this thing that I can desolder somewhere......
