I know that this sounds odd but the fix is to remove the battery and hit the camcorder on the back (where the battery was) with the palm or your hand. Put the batter back and it will work. I found this soluation a a CNET web site solution. I don't know why it works.

My panasonic model # DV203D displays the Error Message DEW DETECTED. I thought after several years of storage surely the message would have disappeared, but much to my disappointment it is still Detecting Dew? What genius came up with that error message. Please Help

I had exactly the same problem. It is moisture from a climate change that is causing the problem. REMOVE THE BATTERY - IMMEDIATELY. Open the tape door. Place the camera upside down (and open) on an open heater vent. Let the warm air from your heater flow through the camera for 20-30 minutes. You can then replace the battery and it should work fine again.

Your camera is obviously defective. It may have been a return and resold to you. In any case, you should return it immediately....this problem will only get worse.

I have a SONY KF-WE50 rear projection tv, a few weeks ago it started to turn the pic and sound off while the green light was flashing around 30 times. After the light finished flashing both the picture and...


the green is the reboot process and is normal.
the red light is an error code indicator.
count the blinks of the red light...it cant be 30 times (I think)
it will blink a sequence, pause, then do it again for a total of three times.
count carefully, it gives you three chances to catch the number it is blinking.

GL2 - Tape gets jammed everytime. Eject lights up immediately


This problem is usually related to the Dew Sensor, Unfortunately you can not by-pass the dew sensor. I paid a repair to fix, but he could not. Canon must repair the dew sensor.
I have same prob. I just capture directly to computer since my tape will not open. I would be interested in buying cameras like this, i can use them to still monitor images.

Exilim Z1000 got wet - won't turn on


Remove the battery and dry it out. Don't try to use artificial heat to speed it up, Just leave it sit out for a few days (if the weather's fine) or a few weeks if it isn't. If that doesn't work you may have shorted something, you could send it in to Canon, they'll estimate it when they see it. I once left my favorite 10-CD boom-box out overnight in a downpour. I dried it out for three months up in the barn, brought it in and found one corroded connection, re-soldered that and Hendrix sounds as good as ever.

"Dew" sitting on my Video Camera


Dew Formation
What is “dew formation”?
When cold water is poured into a glass,
dew drops form on the glass. This clinging
of water drops is called dew formation.
When dew forms in your camcorder.
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.
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.
How to prevent trouble.
When using the camcorder in a place
where dew is likely to form, allow the
camcorder and the video tape to
acclimate to the surroundings for about
one hour.
For example, when bringing the
camcorder indoors after skiing, place it in
a plastic bag.
1Be sure to tightly seal the plastic bag
containing the camcorder.
2Remove the bag when the air temperature
inside it reaches the temperature
of the room.
“Dew” warning feature
If dew forms, the word “DEW” flashes on
the screen, and the power will automatically
turn off in approximately 10 seconds.
Plastic bag
1If “DEW” flashes, remove the cassette,
leave the cassette compartment open,
and wait for a few hours to allow the
camcorder to acclimate to the
surrounding temperature.
2To use the camcorder again, turn on the
power after waiting for a few hours. Be
sure that “DEW” has disappeared.
3Do not insert a cassette while “DEW” is
flashing; this may result in damage to
the tape.
4Since dew forms gradually, it may take
10 to 15 minutes before the dew
warning feature engages.

Casio Exilim EX-S880 will not turn on


The problem is the spring terminals inside the camera are not making good contact with the battery. I had to use a screw driver and gently push them to the left to make better contact with the battery terminals. There are three connections. I stress that you be gentle. This not the long term fix but you will be able to take pictures in the short term.

My camera keeps turning off when I turn it on, and the battery is fully charged. Right before it turns off it says "alert" in red letters.. help!


Your batteries could be bad. If not then you could send it in to mackcam.com for an estimate. It would most likely be a power board
