The DEW light is flashing when I try to play a casette

The DEW light is flashing when I try to play a cassette. I tried drying the unit out and resetting the switch but the light continues to blink when I plug in a tape. There is no video at all. Nothing has been spilled on the unit. Is there anything else I can try?

That is 'dew' as in wet. Do you have it in a warm, dry location? This time of year they can attract condensation if the VCR is in a cold place.
Hope Ya Fix it!

Panasonic NV-DS27. Is there a manual eject mechanism - cassette won't eject.


try the casette eject lever located on the right side of the camcorder.has the condensation light come on? if moisture has gotten into the unit the casette may not eject. you will need to leave it for a few hours in a warm dry location for the unit to dry out and try again.

Hope this helps!

Dew light


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. 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. When ?DEW? flashes, remove the cassette,leave the cassette compartment open,and wait for a few hours to allow the camcorder to acclimatise to the surrounding temperature. To use the camcorder again, turn on the power after waiting for a few hours. Be sure that ?DEW? has disappeared. Do not insert a cassette while ?DEW? is flashing; this may result in damage to the tape.

Videotape is at end of recording space. went to record new event and tape came out of casette and will not play or rewind in video camera


Try another tape in camcorder to make sure that camcorder is OK.
If same problem comes with another tape, check any error sign blinks in camcorder LCD? Usually this kind of problem happens when Dew sensor activated.
Remove battery/ power source from camcorder for 30-40 minutes, reattach battery / power source with camcorder and try.
Let me know model and brand of your camcorder for more research.
Thanks.

Shut down "dew"


This happens when you take camera from cold(er) environment to warmer environment, dew forms on the recording head, so as a precaution the unit locks up. The solutions is to leave the unit switched on and wait till the dew incator goes out( can take up to an hour) I found this out when on holiday, i would go from an air conditioned room to bright sunshine and it happened all the time.

Recording stopped working


Beleive the CCD has stopped responding. A cheap way to verify this is to point an infrared remote towards the lens and press a key. This will usually provoke a response from the camera even if all else fails, barring a bad pickup device...accordianman

Dew and casette eject


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.

HELP, my panasonic keeps shutting off. Dew? condensation?


Put it in a very dry place, and let it sit for a few days. How is it getting either dew or condensation? Once dried out, keep it in an airtight plastic bag.
