Question about JVC Digital Cameras

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 to seat properly. What is the problem?

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..........

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.

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!

I've tried several 4 GB SD memory cards in my JVC GR-DF450u mini dv digital camcorder and continue to receive an Card Error Message? How do I fix it.


The GR-DF450u works with SD cards. Your 4GB cards are actually SDHC cards. While they fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

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
