Camcorder shows condensation problem most of the time
Sony Digital Camcorder (DCR-TRV355E) shows condensation error (code C21:00) almost all the time, even though the camera is totally dry and hasn't been taken outside the house for days.
I suppose it's a faulty humidity sensor or a fault in the connections to the humidity sensor.
I'd rather disable the whole humidity sensor and live without the condensation warning, and at least have a usable camera!
Any ideas how I could fix or mask the problem?

Re: Camcorder shows condensation problem most of the time
Its a possibility that the sensor could be bad but I'll bet that its a small surface mounted capacitor thats bad. These are common for the caps to go bad, and when they do start to leak, the camcorder should be taken into the shop asap, AS THE LONGER YOU WAIT THE MORE DAMAGE the Capacitors will cause, as they eat up the tiny traces on the board and then the board has to be replaced. Good Luck

C:31:42 shows following error.. FG fault during normal drum operations. Its related to drum assembly (video head) in camcorder and possible reason can be drum stuck with some thing, no power to drum motor etc.
condensation is the situation where a sensor detects presence of moisture inside that is hazardous to the gadget, this will not be removed if no air flow can get inside, best way is to open any side and blow hot air inside. Not hot that can damage some parts.
