    I have 2 HV30's and loved them. Well I had two.

    Today one of them died, it got a " Remove The Cassette " message.

    So I tried to remove the cassette and it would not spit it out.

    GOOGLE --> HV30 Cassette Removal

    You will see too many mentions of this error on the HV20/HV30

    Some have had to use " Reset " to clear it, that did not work for me.

    I suspect "Reset" works in the case of a bad tape and not humidity.

    I returned THAT unit, because I was able to. Still have one.

    Now looking for another solution as I many times am in areas of high humidity.

    I saw mention of the HV20, HV30, and one of the GL models.

    Again in my case I suspect it was high humidity related - but there is info out there on the error message coming up for cassette issues as well.

    I got the same problem with my Canon :( I tried different ways of getting rid of the humidity but no luck...I heard there is a way to disconnect the sensor...But that can't be very good for the camera...

    I have a Canon MV6i and i get the error "Condensation has been detected"

    I know camcorders have condensation/moisture sensors, but I wonder if Canon sensors might be a tad, over sensitive. As much as I am not a fan of the HDD solution, I may be going that way.
