SOURCE: 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 ).

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

The process involves taking the camera apart.
Other forums I have looked at have mentioned waiting the error out or allowing the camera to air out.

SOURCE: Please Wait Condensation, Operation Paused

This is often referred to as DEW and is a sensor inside the camera that detects moisture. You can hasten the removal most times by warming the camera with a hairdryer on medium setting and not too close to the plastic case. When you store the camera store it with a few of those little bags of silicone crystals that come in many packages that we just throw away.

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!

When on sreen says please wait condisation operation paused wut do i do thank u


Condensation can form inside the camera if you take the camera from one environment to another where there is an extreme temperature change.
Simply wait until the condensation disappears. The warning is to protect tape and camera.

I have a error saying please wait condensation operation paused what does this mean


It probably means that a moisture sensor has tripped inside the recording mechanism. Did you take the camera from a cold (i.e air-conditioned) place into a warm place?
Generally waiting 'til the camera has warmed up and whatever moisture inside has gone away will let you use the camera again.
