There are two options here:

1) Eject the unit so that the tape compartment is open and blow air into the camera using a fan. That should reduce any condensation inside that may exist.

2) If the above does not work, the sensor could be bad or the connections onit could be bad. You will need to remove the door to gain access to the mechanism. You should be able to see the sensor inside. It will appear to be like a small grid on the face of the mechanism. Check the connections on it. If they appear to be OK. Call up JVC and order a replacement dew sensor.

If you don't feel comfortable working on camcorders, please seek out an authorized JVC service center.

I have a JVC Mini DV Camcorder model GR-D7OU. When I turn it on, there is an error message that says:"Condensation, Operation Paused." It has been like that for a week. It will not allow a casset...


Try this one:

1. Take of the battery and take all of the screws out of the exterior and also behind the LCD. I recommend drawing a sketch of each view of the cam on a pice of paper(top,side,bottom,back) and place every screw it its rightful place, cause they're different sizes and you're shure to mix them up if you're not careful

2. Carefuly pull the two sections of the camera apart (left and right). You will notice a connector linking the two parts

3. Disconnect the connector from one side. I think you can disconect it only from one side, you have to pull up on a strapping mechanism. Careful not to force it. Figure it out patiently.
Wait about 5-6 minutes and re-connect it. This kinda resets the whole camera.
4. Put it back together.
Hope that helps..........

When you open the camcorder, it appears on the screen: PLEASE WAIT, CONDENSATION OPERATION PAUSED. JVC Digital Video Camera> Model D70AS


This is usually an indication of high humidity or dampness inside the camcorder. Some devices say "DEW" instead. Most of the time, a simple "airing out" will allow the moisture to be evaporated away. The amount of time required for this to happen is dependent of how damp it is inside the camera and how dry the air is when trying to air it out. Obviously, dry air will evaporate the moisture much quicker than humid air. If you can power the camcorder from your home's electricity - you might want to leave it on so that the electronics inside the camcorder can heat up and significantly reduce the evaporation time.

If the camcorder message doesn't clear after a reasonable period of time, it may require professional servicing. I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

How can I get a manual for my JVC camcorder,model#GR-DA30U. Also how do I get a USB for same camcorder?


JVC has manuals for the GR-DA30UC and GR-DA30US models at
http://books.jvc.com/booklist.asp?Model=GR-DA30U

Neither one of them has a USB port, so there are no USB cables for the camcorder
