There is a sensor near the video head of the camera which senses the percentage of humidity in air and switch off the function, if the humidity is high, because the tape will get struck with video head due to high moisture content in the air. Usually the inside of the camera is cooler than the outside so it will not function.
Remedy is to reduce the humidity down. So expose the camera to sun light after opening the cassette door.Or a little heated air from a video light can do well.

Is condensation visible? Can you see any areas (behind the litle screen, lens etc) that have moisture?

Do you still have condensation, or is the camera just saying you do? how technically skilled are you? Do you feel confident enough to take off the outer cover and let it dry in the sun.

It says condensation and wont work


This normally is cause from of course condensation got wet or damp, and some times it is just that the tape area needs cleaning. Best thing first is try to new tape, then of course make sure it is dry, leave cover open and camera in warm area, if not then needs cleaning. mike

Jvc 700x digital zoom video camera. Condensation, operation paused? camera cannot be used because of this. What can be done to fix this problem, thanks. Ginette


Hi Ginette The camcorder has a built in Dew sensor that monitors the condensation in the area of the camcorder while it is in use. Normally after leaving the area where the condensation is and the camera sitting for a while it should reset itself, if it doesn't then the dew sensor needs to be replaced. On the model that is shown in the picture it is on the motor bracket assembly. I could be more specific if i had an exact model number. I hope this helps.

yes had this on a few JVC it may be that the moisture has corrosded the dew sensor and will need service. When you store it use those crystals that come in packing of some items They are excellent for preventing this in Video cameras

The video camera says condensation please wait


Use dessicant packs that come with new pairs of shoes or electronics, seal in ziploc bag with camera for 14-hrs with unit opened up as much as possible, try again?

Camera won't record/ play footage.


Video head was dirty / clogged due to old tapes usage so it did not recorded any signal on tape and now it requires cleaning with good quality head cleaning tape to record and playback properly.

CONDENSATION


Condensation message comes when video head drum got moisture and such moisture can damage tape and video heads. So camera stops function of tape loading and play/ rew/ ff.

Eject and take out tape, if any in camera and blow hot air by hair dryer for 1-2 minutes from at least 6"distance in tape mechanism.

This will evaporate any moisture on video head drum.
and if camera still gives error then dew sensor in camera is bad and you need tech person to replace it.

Condensation


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.
