HELP, my panasonic keeps shutting off. Dew? condensation?

Hi i own a Panasonic NV-DS60. Was working well, but then the condensation light kept flashing and the camera refused to work. had to send it in to the dealer. Now, two weeks since it came back was working perfectly fine, my camcorder now refuses to record, or play back more than 3 secs of video, then switches to standby, with the power led winking at me. Tried 4 diffrerent tapes, still the same. i suspect dew or condensation maybe even though the condensation light does not come on. Anyone have suggestions of what i can do in case it is dew, or condensation instead of sending it in again? thanks

Re: HELP, my panasonic keeps shutting off. Dew?...

I had the same problem and noticed that the light was steady when I removed the tape, suggesting that the problem related to tape transport. I inserted the tape without switching on and banged the base of the cam firmly on a wooden table. That sloved my problem.

Put it in a very dry place, and let it sit for a few days. How is it getting either dew or condensation? Once dried out, keep it in an airtight plastic bag.

Dew symbol on panasonic NV-DS60


My panasonic camera does the same- from what research I've done online the only method (that REALLY works) is removing the battery pack and hitting the camera (where the battery was at, don't hit it too hard) with the palm of your hand. I didn't believe this until I tried and *poof* it worked back normal.
