Question about Panasonic PV-GS39 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Dew Detected We just started getting a dew deteced error on our PV-GS39, however it's nowhere that it would get dew. We've followed the instructions in the manual, I've tried hitting it a few times (as suggested on multiple web site), all to no avail. Any suggestions? Thanks,

    There is no moisture, is there any way to fix a faulty sensor without sending it to the manufacturer who wants to charge almost the same price that we spent to purchase it in the first palce.

Dew detect comes from moist that gets on your dew detect sensor. This prevents any moist from damaging the tape or mech. if moist gets on your tape it will stick inside your mech. if you have not been in a moist area then the sensor could be faulty or your main pcb could be faulty.

Dew detected


If you contact Panasonic, they will say to remove the tape, use a hair dryer (low setting) for about 5 minutes and then leave it opened overnight.

or you can try

to put the camera in a plastic bag with the tape door open and insert a silica gel bag (that you find in shoe boxes). Close the plastic bag and leave it overnight. The next morning, the video camera should start working! This is something that an owner tried that worked without the manufacturer's help.

Hope it works for you, too.

Let me know if you need anything else

Hi,
The camera is telling you that there is moisture inside the unit, place the camera in a warm dry space for 24 - 48 hours to dry out, it should be fine after that.

Eject the tape. Leave the tape carriage open. Power the unit off and tent it with a light linen cloth for about 20 minutes in a warm but obviously low humidity area. Emergency/ short time approach: Clean hair blow-dryer. Set for warm/low heat. Turn on and "wave" the warm air into the tape mechanism section about 18 to 12 inches away from the camera's open gate/door. Bake for 3-5 minutes..

This may sound stupid, but it worked for me.

Turn your camera on. When you get the dew detected warning, take your battery off and just hit the spot where your battery was a few times with your palm, not too hard, but not really soft. Put the battery back on and it should be fixed unless you actually do have a dew problem!

If that doesn't work, try drying it out with a hair dryer.

I have the same problem with my PV-DV103. Panasonic wants more to TRY and fix it than the camera cost new. MY advise can the camera and buy one without the DEW option.
Thats what I am searching for presently . If the manufacturer says the camera has a dew indicator in the circuit - buy elseware.

Dew detected on DV-203


I bought my 203 2 years ago-same problem. I FOUND THE SOLUTION! Might sound stupid, but I found it online, tried it and it works! When you get the "Dew Detected" sign on the screen, remove the battery, give it a good palm hit on the bottom where the battery sits. Hit it a couple good times, put the battery back in and voila it will work guaranteed! I thought it was dumb at first, tried it and it works, hell it works everytime. The blow dryer, plastic bag trick dont work because its an electrical error, not actual dew.

Dew detected error signal


Dew has condensed in the camera. Eject the cassette but leave the cassette door open.remove the battery . Borrow a hair drier . set it to optimum temperature(not vey hot but but hot enough to cause discomfort when blown on fingers). direct the hot air through the cassette compartment door for about five minutes. reattach the battery and reinsert the tape.
Good Luck,
