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.

Message appears CONDENSATION-OPERATION PAUSED


A sensor called the DEW sensor, "Thinks" that there is moisture in the camera, this may or may not be so. I suggest you open the camera up, leave it in a quite a warm place for a bit, and see if that clears it. otherwise it may be a faulty sensor, happens frequently.

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 paused, JVC Video Camera model GR-D70AS


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

Condensation message


Dry it using hairblower, open the lid cover and blow it dry but donot overheat pls... If it still not working then the sensor is acting abnormally. Most JVC dew sensor are very sensitve and can easily be broken. Here in Philippines we dont have four season and the use of dew sensor here is not important, i only replaces it with a resistor to act as a dummy sensor. (1000 ohms to be exact)

Condensation


This is a bad or dirty dew sensor, a common problem with this model. It's not a user correctable problem. Your local camcorder repair shop should take care of it ( under $100 ).
