There is humidity in the camera, most likely on the circuit board, and the internal humidity detector is sensing it.

It is possible but rare, the humidity sensor and or its related circuitry is defective.

When startup show the messaje "WARNING DEW DETECTED" and 5 seconds later shutdown


Dew warning is normal and means condensation has been detected the camera. Usually this happens when you take the camera from a warm room to a cold external place or vice versa. Wait for about an hour or so for the camera to acclimatise.

Get "DEW DETECTED" warning on screen, powers off.


Also try this, take the bottom cabinet off, with the lcd panel facing you and the camera turned upside down and the cassette housing pointing away from you you will see 2 wide gold cables plugged into the right side of the board, realitively the same size, the gold cable that is between the main pcb and the mechanism assy is the control cable pull it our of the connector and clean it with alcohol, you can even take it one step further and evenly trim just a hair of the cable off all the way across just so that it has a new place to set. This has worked for me over 100 times in the past years. Seasoned camcorder technician 13 years experience.

Dew detected show on lcd


Hi,
The camera is telling you that there is moisture inside the unit, place the camera in a warm dry space for 24 - 48 hours to dry out, it should be fine after that.

Dew Detected message


When the camera's circuits detect condensation on the tape heads, this message is shown and the camera shuts down. This is to prevent damage to tapes, that could stick to the damp head.  It is recommended to leave the camera in a warm and dry place until sufficient time has elapsed for the condensation to evaporate. This may be several hours. Do not leave the camera anywhere too warm that is likely to damage it, like on a stove or radiator.  This issue is commonly caused by moving the camera from the cold outdoors, into the warmth of indoors. If the symptoms persist, the head may be dirty. try a head cleaner cassette, or failing that, return for service.

Warning Dew Detected


Where are you keeping that camera? I would return this camera if it keeps happening (before warranty expire).

Dew detected


This may sound stupid, but it worked for me.

Turn your camera on. When you get the dew detected warning, take your battery off and just hit the spot where your battery was a few times with your palm, not too hard, but not really soft. Put the battery back on and it should be fixed unless you actually do have a dew problem!

If that doesn't work, try drying it out with a hair dryer.

Dew detected on DV-203


I bought my 203 2 years ago-same problem. I FOUND THE SOLUTION! Might sound stupid, but I found it online, tried it and it works! When you get the "Dew Detected" sign on the screen, remove the battery, give it a good palm hit on the bottom where the battery sits. Hit it a couple good times, put the battery back in and voila it will work guaranteed! I thought it was dumb at first, tried it and it works, hell it works everytime. The blow dryer, plastic bag trick dont work because its an electrical error, not actual dew.
