The camera has got moisture inside it and that is why you getting the message on-screen.
I suggest you find a dry warm place to put the camera in for about 24 hours for the camera to dry out. Take out the battery when you do this. The condensation should have dried up after 24 hours and should be fine after that.
Condensation can form inside the camera if you take the camera from one environment to another where there is an extremetemperature change.
Simply wait until the condensation disappears. The warning is to protect tape and camera.
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.
I found instructions with pictures on fixing this problem online at http://www.freewebs.com/ltooz/03jvcgrd70u.htm The process involves taking the camera apart. Other forums I have looked at have mentioned waiting the error out or allowing the camera to air out.
The only thing you can try is to dry it out completely. Open every possible port to the interior, and put it near a dry-heat source. If the moisture is reasonably near a surface it may take a day or two -- if it is in a semi-sealed place it may take forever for the condensation to evaporate out. There's nothing more you can do but have patience and keep trying it to see if the error goes away over time, possibly a looong time.
Before you bring it inside from the cool outdoors, you should seal it in a plastic bag until it warms up -- that way any condensation will form on the outside of the bag and not inside the camera.
