C21:00 on sony GV-A500 what to do?

It has the error code for condensation cheack the sensor (see photo link below) If it is very dirty it will appear like a small square circuit board about 5mm x 5mm with a black blob in the center and two solder connections at the top. After cleaning you should see a bright copper circuit where the black was prior to cleaning. Gentle wiping with an alcohol moistened cotton bud is all it needs. it looks like this

Error message saying video lost and not recording

There are several possible issues at play whenever the lost video message appears.

First, have cameras lost power? If you powered cameras through a central power source, inspect it and verify it is working

If you powered cameras through a plug in transformer, touch it, if warm it is working

Next touch the cameras, are they warm? If so, they have power.

Once you have determined cameras have power, disconnect power for several minutes. Turn power back on, if cameras respond and send video, your cameras have likely suffered damage from a power surge and are near failure.

If you have access to a small tv with an RCA video in jack, you
can test this by leaving the camera powered, run a short length of cable from the tv to the camera. We use hand held mini monitors to test this, but they are pricey,

It is most likely that have power surge damage and the cameras need to be replaced
