Re: If I leave the battery in the camera will it damage...

Like most battery-powered products, it's best to remove batteries when not in use for a long time to avoid possible damage to batteries and/or Viewcam ®.

I have a dcr-sr47 sony cam cord. Got wet today and only red light by battery on back lower left flashes now and no picture nothing. Help thank you


Hi,

As you probably know liquid damage can be serious for electrical items. You don't say if the camcorder just got splashed or was immersed.

First thing is remove the main battery and any coin cell that may be a back up battery. Then place in a warm dry place (airing cupboard) and leave to dry. Try to stand the unit on its battery end.

Then once dried for a few days try it with the battery. Sadly water damage can and does kill the parts inside so professional repair may be your only chance.

My JVC Digial Video Camera has an error message "Condensation Operation Paused". What should I do and where can I get this thing repaired?


HI,
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.



1- Turn off the cammera.

2- Unplug the AC/DC Cable from the wall

3- Take off the Battery

4- Open the Tape holder.

5- Hold a portable light bulb around 60Wats (turned on of course) nearby the tape holder like for 10 or 15 min. to warm it up.

PS: If you play any tape and the picture looks like damaged, it might be because it's not dry enough, so repeat the step 5 to finish.

THANK YOU,
VIJAY

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.

Ccd-trv37 trouble with recharging battery


I think, battery is not being charged in camera.
  1. Plug the charger in AC out let.
  2. hook up with camera, check camera wroks with charger,
  3. set camera power button in OFF / Standby position,
  4. attach battery to camera and check any Charge-Light lit?
  5. If yes, leave it on charge up to 4-5 hours for new battery.

· Tap o the side to fix your problems
-only, only, only use the more expensive JVC tapes. They keep their tension far better than cheaper brands. Also, they won't rub off their oxide coatings on the heads as easily, avoiding the 'clogging' of the heads (which thereby requires constant cleaning-further damaging the heads).
-when and if you do get E- errors do a complete rewind or fast forward to the end of the tape in order to pull out tape slack. Then remove battery and tape for a while. If still screwed, then yes, sharply tap (not hard!) on the closed tape door. That may reposition those tiny switches that I mentioned earlier and get you going again.
-NEVER, EVER, EVER, leave tapes in the machine when not in use....it creates problems for the heads and the mechanisms.
-Don't leave the battery on the camera when not in use for extended periods of time. It can create problems with respect to resetting the computer controlled logic.
-there are little switches and interlocks that provide electrical feedback about the mechanical status of things to the main processor of the camera (ie. tape/no tape in camera, door open/closed etc). Over time, the mechanics get out of adjustment because of usage, humidity and certainly rough handling. So: treat the mechanisms very, very, very delicately. Don't use/store the camera in humid conditions, hot conditions or very cold conditions. Certainly don't leave it in your car---ever!
-get the camera "cleaned and ajusted" regularly to avoid these problems. (I know...more $$$$)
· -I keep bags of dessicant in an insulated camera bag with the camera to maintain dryness and optimal temperatures during storage.

Camera keeps draining the attached battery when the camera is off


I had the same problem and a tech told me that the camera will continue to draw from the battery if it is connected. There is no fix other than to disconnect the battery when not in use.
