Having problems with your JVC Digital Cameras ?

JVC GR-D31 camcorder showing "Condensation" warning - no matter what I do. Suspect faulty dew sensor. What can I do?


Answers :

There are two options here:
\015\012
\015\0121) Eject the unit so that the tape compartment is open and blow air into the camera using a fan. That should reduce any condensation inside that may exist.
\015\012
\015\0122) If the above does not work, the sensor could be bad or the connections onit could be bad. You will need to remove the door to gain access to the mechanism. You should be able to see the sensor inside. It will appear to be like a small grid on the face of the mechanism. Check the connections on it. If they appear to be OK. Call up JVC and order a replacement dew sensor.

Erratic shutdown of Panasonic ag dvc7 camcorder due to dew sensor malfunction. Have tried the obvious solution with hair dryer. Can periodically resolve by removing/replacing battery or by smacking the case. Makes me think it is a loose connection, but have no idea where to look for connection. Any way to disable this dew sensor or repair without sending back to factory?


Based on vibration (smacking the case) sometimes resolving, it seems like you're on track with the problem being a loose wire or solder connection. Other than going in and fixing that, there isn't much that can be done. There's no setpoint or menu ... Digital Cameras

When I turn on my Olympus FE-190 camera it shows the "card setup" screen with two choices: Power Off (highlighted) or Format, and gives a 3-ring alert sound. (It does this no matter what is set on the program dial: auto, guide, etc.) If I press OK to "set" with Power Off highlighted, it turns off. If I highlight format and press OK of course it warns me I'll be reformatting the XD card. When I attach the usb cable the screen on the camera shows PC highlighted but when I press OK it says "one mom

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-HC27E Camcorder which was working great until a few days ago. my problem is its suddenly not showing my recorded tapes, I was watching footage only a few days ago from my recent holiday, the images were starting to get grey stripes across the screen, thought this was due to a low battery, put in a new one, still no images showing.

PV-DC152D CAMCORDER, LCD Display only works if it is pulled out, turned 180 degrees and pushed back into place so the display is facing you. If you move the LCD display over 3/4" away from camcorder it will go black again. Personally, I think this is an issue with some sensors that gauge when to turn on the LCD display "ON" and Viewfinder "OFF" and vice-versa. Any help on this would be appreciated since there is nothing else wrong with the camcorder.

We know that there was viewable video earlier because we reviewed the disc yesterday and was able to watch our daughter's recital.

My HP Pavilion 9000t cannot seem to detect my Canon ZR830 camcorder. Even though the Canon shows "DV IN" when I connect the firewire, after using system restor to roll back prior to Windows update, and after updating the IEEE driver in device manager, the computer can't find it. Annoyingly enough, I was previously able to "see" this camcorder on my computer. No help on the Canon site, and no help on the HP site either.
