I found instructions with pictures on fixing this problem online at
http://www.freewebs.com/ltooz/03jvcgrd70u.htm
The process involves taking the camera apart.
Other forums I have looked at have mentioned waiting the error out or allowing the camera to air out.

How long have you had your camcorder?

This is my experience
Maybe Maybe

I bought 3 Sony camcorders at different times, I have used each of them not more than 20 times, and my brother bought another kind of camcorder did the same, but after 3-4 years, they are automatically quit one by one, even my brother’s camcorder quit within 4 years, this is what I think, the big companies like Sony, Jvc etc., won’t let the customers use the same unit for a long time, from our case, made us thought, they probably put a timer to control the age of the camcorders. Maybe we have to know how to adjust or change the timer chap or it will cost some money to fix it. This called a quality control.

I am still research about this case. And also I have a lot of documents can not transfer.

Condensation please wait, and does not recoed, open tape door, and does not want to shut, will not record while this is happening, and there is no condensation in the camcorder


I purchased this camcorder used with the condesation error, it arrived in the mail yesterday, I researched the fix and without loosing any screws got it fixed. Here is what I did.

I plugged in the power cord, turned it to auto with the display screen open, the condensation error was blinking, I left it on for about 30 mins to one hour {didn't keep a tab as I was watching my favorite Tv show.} When I checked back the "condensation" error was gone.I then placed it on "off /charge" to charge the battery.

This is the next day and it hasn't return. It is almost unbelievable, the previous owner sold it just because of the error and I hardly did anything much to fix it. I am so happy.

I dropped the Camcorder, SONY DCR DVD108 and now get an errror message E61:10. Can you help fix it for a reasonable amount or should I just buy a new one?


Error E:61:10 means that some elements of your lens system were misaligned. Now the simplest way to get rid of this problem is to do the very thing that caused it in the first instance. Bang the lens in a controlled manner against a hard surface(wood is preffered) while switching it off and on several times until the fault goes away . dont continue banging it when the fault goes away!
Good luck.

Condensation operation of camcorder paused


Condensation problem is a common on newer camcorders. It is the sensor on the board that detects the condition of humidy. If you have not wet the camera or stored it in the humid area, the sensor or components around sensor is faulty. You can try to dry any humidity using hair dryer at medium setting in about 6 inches away for less than 5 minutes toward inside of tape loading area (make sure loading mech is at opened position). If this does not work, take it to recommended local camcorder repair facility for a diagnostics. Good Luck. CRJ

Sony TRV120 Won't load tape C21:00 code


From the user manual ...

Under self diagnosis display
--------------------------------------------------
C21:00
Moisture condensation has occurred.
Remove the cassette and leave your camcorder for at least 1 hour to acclimatize. (p117)

On p117
-------------------------------------------------
If your camcorder is brought directly from a cold to a warm place, moisture may condense inside your camcorder, on the surface of the tape, or on the lens. In this condition, the tape may stick to the head drum and be damaged or your camcorder may not operate correctly. If there is moisture inside your camcorder, the beep sounds and the [picture of water drip] indicator flashes. When the [end tape icon] indicator flashes at the same time, the cassette is inserted in your camcorder. If moisture condenses on the lens, the indicator will not appear.

If moisture condensation occurred
None of the functions except cassette ejection will work. Eject the cassette, turn off your camcorder, and leave it for about 1 hour with the cassette compartment open. Your camcorder can be used again if the [water drip] indicator does not appear when the power is turned on again.

Note on moisture condensation
Moisture may condense when you bring your camcorder from a cold place into a warm place (or vice-versa) or when you use your camcorder in a hot place as follows:
- You bring your camcorder from a ski slope into a place warmed up by a heating device.
- You bring your camcorder from an air-conditioned car or room into a hot place outside.
- You use your camcorder after a squall or a shower.
- You use your camcorder in a high temperature and humidity place.

How to prevent moisture condensation
when you bring your camcorder from a cold place into a warm place, put your camcorder in a plastic bag and tightly seal it. Remove the bag when the air temperature inside the plastic bag has reached the surrounding temperature (after about 1 hour).

Condensation, Operation Paused


The only thing you can try is to dry it out completely. Open every possible port to the interior, and put it near a dry-heat source. If the moisture is reasonably near a surface it may take a day or two -- if it is in a semi-sealed place it may take forever for the condensation to evaporate out. There's nothing more you can do but have patience and keep trying it to see if the error goes away over time, possibly a looong time. Before you bring it inside from the cool outdoors, you should seal it in a plastic bag until it warms up -- that way any condensation will form on the outside of the bag and not inside the camera.

There is a red on and off icon on the sceen


The fix is really easy and costs nothing, just 10 minutes of your time!

*I fixed mine (twice) this way*

Turn the cam over.
remove all the screws holding the dark plastic bottom on the camcorder, remove it carefully.
Now you will see the ribbon cables, VERY GENTLY, wiggle them from left to right (about 1mm each way), then push them in.
Test by putting your battery back on and see if it holds a tape, or plays without blinking and switching off - you will be happy.

The fault is simply that one cable (I can't tell you which one) becomes loose over time, so it just needs to be pushed back in and the condensation error and/or the door closing problem go away!

A lot of folks are buying cams off eBay like this as it's such a simple repair!

Good luck - please help others - post back if it works!

Condensation


When pouring a chilled beverage into a glass, water droplets may form on the surface of the glass. This happens because the air around the glass is rapidly cooled down, and moisture in the air adheres to the surface of the glass. This phenomenon is called condensation. This kind of condensation may also occur with camcorders. If you continue to use the camcorder with condensation on it, it could damage the camcorder. Condensation may form on the camcorder in the following cases: (1) When being moved from a cold place to a warm place (2) When being used in a rapidly-heated cold room (3) When being used in a humid room (4) When being moved from an air-conditioned room to a warm, humid place When condensation occurs: The camcorder stops operating automatically after its power lamp flashes. The warning message "CONDENSATION HAS BEEN DETECTED" appears and the condensation-warning icon below starts flashing. Condensation-warning icon If a cassette is loaded, the warning message "CONDENSATION HAS BEEN DETECTED" and "REMOVE THE CASSETTE" appear and the cassette-warning icon starts flashing. Cassette-warning icon If a cassette is loaded in the camcorder, remove the cassette immediately and leave the cassette compartment open. If condensation is detected, the POWER switch and cassette-removing switch will be activated. Leaving the cassette in the camcorder may damage the tape. A cassette should not be loaded into the camcorder when condensation is detected. How to avoid condensation Unload the cassette and place the camcorder in an airtight plastic bag when moving to locations where temperatures vary. Allow time for the camcorder to adjust to temperature changes slowly before removing it from the bag. Resuming use Allow at least one hour before resuming use; more time may be required for heavier condensation. When condensation has been eliminated, turn the camcorder on. After the condensation-warning icon stops flashing, wait one hour before resuming use.
