Will not record


The dew warning is caused by moisture in the tape deck. LEAVING THE CAMERA OPEN FOR SEVERAL HOURS WILL SOMETIMES CURE THIS. If it does not, the dew sensor must be reset and a factory service station is the only solution. The circuit board which contains the sensor will probably need to be replaced.
Most equiptment has a standard refurbishment program and I would estimate that the cost of repair is between $150 and $200 dollars. A word of caution, never leave a tape in a camcorder as this is a magnate for moisture.

Tape won't play


Hi hwgs,

The "DEW" warning appears if a VHS player or recorder has built up humidity. This, much like dew found on the grass on a cool morning, is the result of condensation building up, ususally after a temperature change. Once the moisture has evaporated the unit should work properly.

Be sure to keep your TV away from sources of humidity, such as a window or a bathroom/kitchen door. Also, make sure it is in a climate-controlled room away from drafts so the temperature does not change rapidly.

Thank you,
Jason,

Hello mountain8,

It sounds like the dew sensor might be bad and giving a false reading. If you have the ability to you could disconnect the dew sensor to see if it is the problem.

I hope this helps,

Thank you

That is 'dew' as in wet. Do you have it in a warm, dry location? This time of year they can attract condensation if the VCR is in a cold place.
Hope Ya Fix it!

It's sounds like the vcr's tape mechinisum is malfunctioning to me. Try unpluging it for a while. It will correct itself. Or it might have
dew sensors if the room is too cold the vcr wont work until the dew it gone off the heads. If it don't have dew sensors
and plays the tape with dew on it might eat the tape.
also if a timer is overlaping or is set to come on right now it might do this.

Sansui TV/VCR 13" color


there is what is called a "dew sensor" in a lot of vcr's that keep you from playing a tape if it senses moisture in the unit because a tape will stick to the video head and get all bunged up. sometimes they go bad and will keep you from playing a tape even when there is no moisture present. if your are electronically inclined you can take the back off and locate the dew sensor, then disconnect it. the constant whirring noise is the unit's way of trying to dry off the video head cylinder. the dew sensor, which is usally located behind the video head, is a dark grey thing about a half inch by half inch and has two wires going to it.

HELP, my panasonic keeps shutting off. Dew? condensation?


Put it in a very dry place, and let it sit for a few days. How is it getting either dew or condensation? Once dried out, keep it in an airtight plastic bag.
