Condensation preventing cassette eject on Sony VX1000 : LUSENET : Shooting DV Films : One Thread

Hi, my Sony VX1000 is displaying a condensation alert. The instructions say to eject the cassette and leave it open and powered up for one hour to dry out. However, the cassette will not eject. Has anyone experienced this and can let me know how to overcome it. Many thanks Mark Dezzani August 1st 2002

I have the same problem. My vx1000 stopped while playing a tape and will not eject. All that shows on the display is the cassette bad sysbol and the battery icon. No other functions work.

I sent the camera for repair to a local Sony dealer and was charged approx. US$250. The problem apparently was not condensation but a burnt out logic chip.
