This is usually caused by a failed component in the moisture sensing circuit within the camera and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I’m a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I’m semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

SOURCE: Condensation

If the camera becomes damp or cold and brought into a warm atmosphere damp forms in the mechanism which would cause the tape to stick and become damaged or fouled.

leave the camera to warm up for a few hours and the fault should clear.

If not the most common reason is the dew sensor has failed and needs replacing

I found instructions with pictures on fixing this problem online at

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.

SOURCE: camera says condensation please wait

1. There is a condensation sensor in the tape compartment, It is a silver spindle, in the left rear. Clean this with a swab moistened with isoprpyl alcohol. I have tried this recommended approach, and it did not resolve the issue.
2. Open the camera, and unplug the power cable. This will reset the camera, and resolve the issue for varied amounts of time. The instructions for doing this are posted elsewhere on this site. I have done this with my JVC GR-D30, and have had success.

SOURCE: Please Wait Condensation, Operation Paused

This is often referred to as DEW and is a sensor inside the camera that detects moisture. You can hasten the removal most times by warming the camera with a hairdryer on medium setting and not too close to the plastic case. When you store the camera store it with a few of those little bags of silicone crystals that come in many packages that we just throw away.

Condensation operation paused how do I fix this?


If the camera is working correctly it's to protect the camera and tape.
The camera has detected condensation inside it's body due to a large change in temperature. eg. when you take the camera form a heated room to an external environment that is very cold.
You simply wait until the camera acclimatizes.

I'll push the power button and the little green light flashes it beeps and the lense comes out just a tiny bit but then in stops goes back in and beeps twice and it's still off. Is there and...


First check the battery. Charge the battery to full condition or change with new battery and try to turn on your camera.
Or you can put off all batteries and memory card, wait for a moment, then put in again and turn on your camera.

Hope this help

Cant upload photos from my camera


try this go into device manager, remove ALL the USB, uninstall all the drivers, reboot PC, install the software that came with your camera, reboot, at next desktop, wait say a few mins, and NOW plug in your camera, you should hear a dong dong, it will then either install or ask for drivers, point it to the software that you used to install, wait until finished and with it still attached, reboot, wait until desktop appears next time, and wait a little bit, now your camera should work.

Camera won't zoom in


Mike,

I don't think it is your BB. Mine too has stopped zooming when it worked fine last week.

Do you know if BB did an auto update to the software. I am not aware of any.

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.
