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.

Jvc 700x digital zoom video camera. Condensation, operation paused? camera cannot be used because of this. What can be done to fix this problem, thanks. Ginette


Hi Ginette The camcorder has a built in Dew sensor that monitors the condensation in the area of the camcorder while it is in use. Normally after leaving the area where the condensation is and the camera sitting for a while it should reset itself, if it doesn't then the dew sensor needs to be replaced. On the model that is shown in the picture it is on the motor bracket assembly. I could be more specific if i had an exact model number. I hope this helps.

Lcd screen reads


Either the dew sensor is defective or there is some condensation inside the unit. Try opening up the unit and pointing a hair dryer at it from about 12" away (enough to blow warm air inside the unit, not hot air). Let that run for about 10-15 minutes and try the unit again. If it continues to fail, than the dew sensor needs to be replaced. This repair shoold be done by a repair shop as cameras are not the easiest to work on.

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

JVC Model: GR-D7OU


If you refer to the message of condensation, test cleaning the sensor of condensation, a little black square joust behind of the drive motor, the drive motor is located too far on the left side of the mechanism, cleanup whit a qtip moistened lightly in some window cleaner, if this one gets dirty surely it was the problem, wait a few minutes to dries the product on the sensor and try it.

Jvc comcorder getting error message "condensation, operation paused"


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

You have to clean a sensor that one finds to the right of the engine of tape load, it is not necessary to disarm, only opens the compartment of the tape, the laod engine is a vertical cylinder like a 8 mm silver color, It is located even behind to the left side, use a special hook tool, with a cotton cover and laser clen-up solution.
