HI, When turn on BetacamSP PVW-2800P, i get message: "Error10". How can i fix it, help me, please! Thanks


  • An Error Code 10 indicates that condensation is detected. There is a condensation sensor in there and it's detecting to much condensation. Take it to a dryer room and put a fan on it for a bit to get the condensation out of it. When it dries up the Error Code 10 should go away.

Regards, Tony

Sony pvw 2600 VCR we have an error 10 message showing after switching on...what does that mean and how can we fix it? Thanks.


Error 10 relates to a condensation or Dew warning. Unplug the deck and let sit for a day. It should be okay.

Error code 08 comes. Tape ejects automatically. Auto off stays on. Can someone help


error 08 indicates "video drum not spinning." could be as simple as a bad tape, but most likely is defective video drum assembly or defective motor driver circuit.

PVW 2800 hour meter readings?


The reason you can't read the head hour meter, it's because the lithium battery only has a lifetime of 5 years so it's dead and you need to replace it!
