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?

My camcorder is model GR-D20E. When I turn it on, there is error msg on the LCD screen: Please wait. Condensation, operation paused.


Hi.

The camera has got moisture inside it and that is why you getting the message on-screen.

I suggest you find a dry warm place to put the camera in for about 24 hours for the camera to dry out. Take out the battery when you do this.
The condensation should have dried up after 24 hours and should be fine after that.



Regards.

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!

The message, condensation problem please wait appears on the screen. The camera will not work at all.


I'm not familiar with your camera, but if it does have a condensation problem this might help.
1. Turn off the camera 2. Place the camera in a zip-lock bag with dry rice 3. Leave in the bag for 3-4 days 4. Add the battery and power on
I hope this helps!

My camera JVC says Condensation operation paused.


Here is way to fix this: http://www.freewebs.com/ltooz/03jvcgrd70u.htm
Take your time, it's not hard to fix but you need to be calm when working especially when you solder pin 1 & 2. It worked for me and the thing with the power connector was working only for couple minutes but you can try the trick with the power connector first.

I thing it is not worth letting the camera to be repaired for money.. try fix the problem yourself

CONDENSATION NEVER GONE


You are not providing much to go on, but if you are having a problem with condensation, try packing the camera in a ziplock bag with a bunch of desiccant packs (the little packets that come in vitamin and other bottles with supplements) and leave it in there for a few days, the desiccant packs may absorb the moisture.  Keep it in a warm place so that the moisture remains as water vapor so it can escape from wherever it is trapped.  With a little luck this might absorb enough of the trapped water vapor to help.
