1- Turn off the cammera.

2- Unplug the AC/DC Cable from the wall

3- Take off the Battery

4- Open the Tape holder.

5- Hold a portable light bulb around 60Wats (turned on of course) nearby the tape holder like for 10 or 15 min. to warm it up.

PS: If you play any tape and the picture looks like damaged, it might be because it's not dry enough, so repeat the step 5 to finish.

The magnetic reader is either dirty or moist. Try this:
Remove power from the camera. I remove the battery as well. In the back of where the tapes go, on the left side is a silver component. It's just behind a metal roller that hangs down from a plastic piece over the head. If you look behind the roller diagonally across where the tape goes, you can see a black square on the right side of the silver component. Clean this (gently!) with a moist cotton swab. The swap should get a bit of black gunk off. I'd recommend cleaning it with a dry swab next to remove any moisture. Wait a minute or so to be sure it's dry. Then re-apply power. You should not see a false condensation message for a long time.

Also what you can try is drying it (also with tape and battery removed) with a blow dryer on LOW for a couple minutes, or situate a ~60w light bulb near the opened tape door (turned on of course) for 10-15 min.

It will work once the moisture or condensation is gone. If it does not work it could a defective dew sensor.
How old is your camera?

Condensation, operation paused


you can try gently drying it with a hairdryer not too close or too hot but try to get the moisture out that is causing your problem. this could have been caused by coming in from the cold to a warmer room. this should fix it.

Try running a cleaning tape through the JVC 2 or 3 times and also wiping all around the tape compartment with a long cotton bud soaked with isopropyl alcohol. It cured my problem in Singapore.

Jvc gr d50.. "condensation, operation paused"


Set it in a bowl of rice for a couple days or leave it out in the open air till it works again. Do not use a hair dryer or any type of pressurized air source. The rice works for cell phones that take a dip in a water source too.

Jvc comcorder getting error message "condensation, operation paused"


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
