Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Initially, the message "Please Wait" then "Condensation Operation Paused" is either there is a substantial temperature difference between the inside of the camera and the surrounding air (unlikely) or the camera thinks there is condensation inside (most likely); DEW sensor error.

Offhand, try using a hair dryer set to lo heat medium speed. Apply through the open cassette door in a sweeping motion a couple of passes. Exercise great caution not to over heat the inside.

Good luck and thank you for asking JustAnswer.
