Video camera won't operate

\015 I have a samsung video camera model number VP300 and it keeps showing that it has a problem with dew and this prevents the camera from working as its part of the protection from operating the camera in damp conditions. I changed the lithium battery as sugested but the problem still exists, could you please help me? Thanks.\015

Answers :

One of three things is happening here.
\015\0121) There is actually dew inside the machine. Try blowing air onto the unit for a while to "dry it out".
\015\0122) The dew sensor has failed and needs to be replaced.
\015\0123) The solder connections to the dew sensor are marginal which is providing a false reading.
\015\012
\015\012Since this is a camera, getting access to the sensor is not easy. I would bring in the camera for service. If the sensor is bad, the replacement will be around $15. Add in the local labor charge for the complete repair cost.

I have a Sanyo VPC C6EX 6megapixel camcorder which, when switched on, immediately takes a photo in 'camera' mode without any prompting. After that, it will not take a photograph in normal operation. I have moved the switch between REC and PLAY and tried both camera and video modes, but neither will respond when buttons pressed. Switch the camera off, and then back on again, and it still takes a picture automatically without warning....! Indeed, the camera seems to be 'confused'?...even in ME
