Dew has condensed in the camera. Eject the cassette but leave the cassette door open.remove the battery . Borrow a hair drier . set it to optimum temperature(not vey hot but but hot enough to cause discomfort when blown on fingers). direct the hot air through the cassette compartment door for about five minutes. reattach the battery and reinsert the tape.
Good Luck,

DEW DETECT error when I turn on my PV_GS300 mni dv panasonic camcorder, and it shuts off automatically



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

Eject the tape. Leave the tape carriage open. Power the unit off and tent it with a light linen cloth for about 20 minutes in a warm but obviously low humidity area. Emergency/ short time approach: Clean hair blow-dryer. Set for warm/low heat. Turn on and "wave" the warm air into the tape mechanism section about 18 to 12 inches away from the camera's open gate/door. Bake for 3-5 minutes..

Dew detection


try getting a head cleaner for the camera and see if that works. If not then moisture mas seeped into the cameras circuits and caused a short circuit. seems like the only way to fix it, is to have it sent back to the manufacturer for repair.

Where are you keeping that camera? I would return this camera if it keeps happening (before warranty expire).

Dew Detected


dew detect comes from moist that gets on your dew detect sensor. This prevents any moist from damaging the tape or mech. if moist gets on your tape it will stick inside your mech. if you have not been in a moist area then the sensor could be faulty or your main pcb could be faulty.

I have the same problem with my PV-DV103. Panasonic wants more to TRY and fix it than the camera cost new. MY advise can the camera and buy one without the DEW option.
Thats what I am searching for presently . If the manufacturer says the camera has a dew indicator in the circuit - buy elseware.

Dew detected on DV-203


I bought my 203 2 years ago-same problem. I FOUND THE SOLUTION! Might sound stupid, but I found it online, tried it and it works! When you get the "Dew Detected" sign on the screen, remove the battery, give it a good palm hit on the bottom where the battery sits. Hit it a couple good times, put the battery back in and voila it will work guaranteed! I thought it was dumb at first, tried it and it works, hell it works everytime. The blow dryer, plastic bag trick dont work because its an electrical error, not actual dew.
