normal dew indication is from moisture if you can find any desicant out of pill bottle sometimes in new electronics the desicant can be ractivated by placin in oven at 220 degrees basically above boiling point
15 to 20 minutes let desicant cool place camara and desicant in tight sealed container or plastic bag let set overnight see if moisture problem goes away

"Dew" sitting on my Video Camera


Dew Formation
What is “dew formation”?
When cold water is poured into a glass,
dew drops form on the glass. This clinging
of water drops is called dew formation.
When dew forms in your camcorder.
Dew will gradually form on the head drum
of your camcorder and make the video
tape stick to the head. This causes
damage both to the head and the tape.
When dew forms, recording and playback
may not function properly.
Dew is likely to form in the following
circumstances:
—When moving the camcorder from a
cold place to a warm place.
—When placing the camcorder in a cold
room which is then heated rapidly.
—When moving the camcorder outdoors
from an air conditioned room or car.
—When placing the camcorder in the
direct path of air
blowing from an air
conditioner.
—When placing the
camcorder in a
humid room.
How to prevent trouble.
When using the camcorder in a place
where dew is likely to form, allow the
camcorder and the video tape to
acclimate to the surroundings for about
one hour.
For example, when bringing the
camcorder indoors after skiing, place it in
a plastic bag.
1Be sure to tightly seal the plastic bag
containing the camcorder.
2Remove the bag when the air temperature
inside it reaches the temperature
of the room.
“Dew” warning feature
If dew forms, the word “DEW” flashes on
the screen, and the power will automatically
turn off in approximately 10 seconds.
Plastic bag
1If “DEW” flashes, remove the cassette,
leave the cassette compartment open,
and wait for a few hours to allow the
camcorder to acclimate to the
surrounding temperature.
2To use the camcorder again, turn on the
power after waiting for a few hours. Be
sure that “DEW” has disappeared.
3Do not insert a cassette while “DEW” is
flashing; this may result in damage to
the tape.
4Since dew forms gradually, it may take
10 to 15 minutes before the dew
warning feature engages.

Hello mountain8,

It sounds like the dew sensor might be bad and giving a false reading. If you have the ability to you could disconnect the dew sensor to see if it is the problem.

I hope this helps,

Thank you

Video camera won't operate


One of three things is happening here.
1) There is actually dew inside the machine. Try blowing air onto the unit for a while to "dry it out".
2) The dew sensor has failed and needs to be replaced.
3) The solder connections to the dew sensor are marginal which is providing a false reading.

Since this is a camera, getting access to the sensor is not easy. I would bring in the camera for service. If the sensor is bad, the replacement will be around $15. Add in the local labor charge for the complete repair cost.

Dew liht comes on and camcorder shuts off Everything was ok when suddenly the dew light appeared and the camcorder just shut off. Suggestions as to what to do... Do you think if I tried resolving the...


Tools needed. Zip lock bag. Sillica packs from shoe boxes or find somewhere to buy more... SImply seal with the camera and wait a couple days. This will suck the dew out. :) DO NOT USE HEAT like from a hair dryer or anything like that. Too hot for a cam to handle.
