WHEN WE PUT A TAPE IN AND PUSH PLAY THE DEW LIGHT COMES ON AND WILL NOT PLAY.WHAT TO DO?? It's in a van, quite dry as far as I can tell. I've let it sit with power on, can hear the fan inside running but it never "dries out". My model is actually AVP6750, but I couldn't get anywhere using that number. Thanks.

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

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,

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.

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.
