Question about JVC GR-D50 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
The camera has a sensor inside to detect condensation. Condensation can cause the tape to stick the the transport mechanism, resulting in possible damage.
Condensation can occur if the camera is moved from a cold environment to a warm one. The only thing you can do is open the tape compartment, remove the tape to allow maximum airflow and wait for the camera to warm up and any condensation to evaporate.
If the condensation warning had come on and your camera hasn't experienced a sudden change of temperature, this could indicate a possible fault. I'm afraid this is not something you would be able to fix yourself.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
