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.

When trying to record or replay, I'm getting an error message that says "Please wait - Condensation, Operation Paused." I've waited now over a week & still getting the same error...


Put the camcorder in a warm dry place for a few hours, there is moisture inside the unit, that triggers the humidity sensor and shuts the camera off. If after drying the camcorder for a reasonable time it still will not function you will need to get it repaired.

I have a error saying please wait condensation operation paused what does this mean


It probably means that a moisture sensor has tripped inside the recording mechanism. Did you take the camera from a cold (i.e air-conditioned) place into a warm place?
Generally waiting 'til the camera has warmed up and whatever moisture inside has gone away will let you use the camera again.

Condensation operation paused


Remove power from the camera. I remove the battery as well. In the back of where the tapes go, on the left side is a silver component. It's just behind a metal roller that hangs down from a plastic piece over the head. If you look behind the roller diagonally across where the tape goes, you can see a black square on the right side of the silver component. Clean this (gently!) with a moist cotton swab. The swap should get a bit of black gunk off. I'd recommend cleaning it with a dry swab next to remove any moisture. Wait a minute or so to be sure it's dry. Then re-apply power. You should not see a false condensation message for a long time.

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.

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.
