You could have one of several problems. The cleaning message comes up when the camcorder cannot read the signal from the tape properly. This can be caused by: 1) A dirty video head 2) the tape guides being out of alignment 3) A worn or broken video head If a cleaning cassette head does not help, you will need a tech to look at it.
With the dew indication, the tape will not load. This is to prevent the tape from getting stuck inside the unit. If "drying out" the unit has had no effect, either the sensor itself is bad or the connections to it are defective. Opening these is no simple task for the novice. Bring it in for service. It should not be more than about $100 to fix this problem.
You need some hardware to transfer the tape digitally to your computer. I use a cheap device from Best buy that ran around twenty bucks. It has software with it and everything. Basically its a device that has RCA ports and an S-Video port on one side and connect to the computer through USB. Its kinda a headache cause you have to play the Digital 8 tape through the hardware on to the computer and save it as a MPEG. Then you can put it on a flashdrive or email it to people. Much easier just to get a digital video camera if you have the funds.
This mechanism was shared by a number of jvc models and works great til it stops. It has been my experience that most often the entire mechanism is cheap enough it becomes the prefered method for repair. This of course is a shop repair issue. Time is more costly than the part. Entire repair about $150.00.
I have enabled the MV6i to load a tape by:
replacing the 3V 'data' battery,
re-entering the date and time,
turning the camera off for about half an hour,
after taking several photos using the photo function the tape would load properly.
Hope this works for you too!
