Question about JVC GR-DX28 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My camcorder stopped working suddenly. On the screen a message appears as constant saying "condensation operation paused" and the camcorder won't load a cassette, the cassette's just pop straight back out. The cassette mechanism will close without a cassette, but not with one in. Looking at the cassette mechanism I noticed that there appears to be a retaining spring missing on one side ( should the camera have two retaining springs, one on each side. I hadn't bothered to look until it stopped working) Any idea's would of great use. Thanks Paul.
If the camera becomes damp or cold and brought into a warm atmosphere damp forms in the mechanism which would cause the tape to stick and become damaged or fouled.
leave the camera to warm up for a few hours and the fault should clear.
If not the most common reason is the dew sensor has failed and needs replacing
