According to the manual the red X means the heads may be dirty or worn out. I was looking at the manual for the VL-A110U camcorder as it seems like the closest thing but the red X is pretty universal. Your older tapes are probably fine. Sometimes a small piece of tape gets stuck in the tape head and is not easily dislodged. I would tyr using the cleaning tape 10 seconds at a time maybe 3 times, waiting a couple of minutes between cleaning as the heads get hot. If that doesn't do it you will probably need to take it to a reputable repair shop to see if they can do something.
Manual for the VL-A110U is available here.

What type of cassette do i need for a sharp VL-A10 viewcam 8


You need to use a tape that says 8mm or Video8 only. I have provided a link to the type of tape that we would use.

http://www.amazon.com/Sony-MP-Video8-tape-120min/dp/B0009WUCG6/ref=sr_1_7?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1284056100&sr=1-7

There are tapes that say Hi8 and Dig8 on them. These tapes will not work properly in your camcorder because they are the wrong format. Your camcorder would probably chew the tape at some point if you tried to use this kind.

Hope this has helped.

CAN NOT PAYBACK AND SOUND IN MY VIEWCAM


Your camcorder gets all of the information off the tape by uisng the spinning head, called a drum. It sounds as though the drum is either clogged, which can be cured by a cleaning tape, or it is worn out, which means you will need a technician to replace it.

Camcorder Error


for a quick fix I usually override it by slightly opening the tape when its being loaded, i think its a sensor issue. my cams been rendered useless because of this stupid error, I cant even sell it now because it only works 10% of the time and that's usually when im just checking out the cam, only when I need it the most does it screw up on me

Can an adaptor be used to play my 8mm tape in my VHS VCR?


With the Sharp Viewcam ®, there's no need to use an adaptor to play 8 mm tape. Simply connect the Viewcam ® to the TV or VCR for playback. You can even use your VCR to make a copy onto VHS tape.
