Question about Panasonic Palmcorder PV-DV53 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Dew detected error signal

I switch on my cam and it tells me dew detected. I once searched about this problem and found one person writing about short circuiting the dew detector. I am an electrical engineer (I think I should be up to it) But there is a problem. I can't locate the dew detector. Could someone please tell the location? My e-mail is [email protected] thanks.

Dew has condensed in the camera. Eject the cassette but leave the cassette door open.remove the battery . Borrow a hair drier . set it to optimum temperature(not vey hot but but hot enough to cause discomfort when blown on fingers). direct the hot air through the cassette compartment door for about five minutes. reattach the battery and reinsert the tape.
Good Luck,

Same dew dection problem with no help from Panasonic


Stupid as it may sound, After much investigation and navigation, dissasambling, cleaning and unsuccesful attempts. Dew detected message kept coming on . Found a solution that worked for my and many others apparently.

Remove the battery, take the cam firmly and hit it with the palm of your hand exactly bellow de base of the battery seat (lower BACK side OF THE CAM,) TWICE or three times. Hit it hard, Put the battery back on, turn it on and it shoukld work like magic. Try it, I thought the same thing you are thinking now when I read this. please go ahead an try it good luck

Sharp vl-z8 dew light keeps coming on


It seems that the due detector can suffer from bad soldering or soldering alteration after few months of use.

1. The (ideal but uneasy) solution consist to fix this solder by making a clean new one, I personally did it, and it worked for a few months without a problem anymore ; but then it came back again.

2. The other solution consist in short-circuiting the dew detector to eradicate the problem.
Of course, it will also mean that when real dew will happen you may use the video tape recorder when you shouldn't, but at least you should not see the problem coming back again some months later.

To know more about this dew detector circuit and how to fix it the way you want go there:

Hope this will help as it helped me,
Good luck,

Dew detection


try getting a head cleaner for the camera and see if that works. If not then moisture mas seeped into the cameras circuits and caused a short circuit. seems like the only way to fix it, is to have it sent back to the manufacturer for repair.

Dew


It is possible that the dew sensor is faulty or more likely that the connection from teh sensor to the rest of the camera is faulty. This unit will require repair. If you can soler, you may be able to resolve this. I'll look up your model to see how bad the access is to the sensor.

Dew


Model: VL-Z800 Sharp ViewcamZ

I was in Shanghai in Dec 2008 over Christmas and I experienced the 'DEW' problem. The cassette tape door would not close either. I did not experience this before even after 2 years. I suppose the cold & the rain water causes the dew to accumulate in the CAM.

Solution.
I did the reset by taking out the small tiny battery situated just above the big battery. The small battery has a cover. Pull it up & Get the small battery out and the whole camera resets. Re-entering the date & time is the only inconvenience. After reseting, I could use it again, but not for long as the problem comes back. When I came back to Malaysia (Temp 32-34 degrees celsius), the DEW problem disappappers.

You could also try this method to get rid of the dew. Buy a small sack of rice. Yes rice, the uncooked ones. Cut open a small opening just big enough to put your CamCorder into the sack. If you do not want to get your CAM dirty, wrap the CAM with tissue paper. Close the opening with a musking tape and leave it a few days. The dew should disappear from the CAM. It works for mobile phones too when it is accidentally drop into water. Of cause you should not switch on the mobile when it is still wet. It will self distruct if you do. Try the rice solution for a week before you on your mobile.

Dew detected eject tape


I have the same problem with my PV-DV103. Panasonic wants more to TRY and fix it than the camera cost new. MY advise can the camera and buy one without the DEW option.
Thats what I am searching for presently . If the manufacturer says the camera has a dew indicator in the circuit - buy elseware.

Dew detected on DV-203


I bought my 203 2 years ago-same problem. I FOUND THE SOLUTION! Might sound stupid, but I found it online, tried it and it works! When you get the "Dew Detected" sign on the screen, remove the battery, give it a good palm hit on the bottom where the battery sits. Hit it a couple good times, put the battery back in and voila it will work guaranteed! I thought it was dumb at first, tried it and it works, hell it works everytime. The blow dryer, plastic bag trick dont work because its an electrical error, not actual dew.
