Ejects cassette, and gives a dew detect message on

This is usually caused by a failed component in the moisture detection circuitry within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

How do I get my videos from my panasonic pv-gs85

In my experience, your recorded video is in mod or mts format. No matter what, these HD formats cant be accepted by your imovie. U have to convert these hd formats to mov or mp4 imovie can accept.
I always use Pavtube HD Converter which can help me convert these hd formats to mov to use in my imovie. It is easy to use with high output quality.
U can have a try.
