Question about Sharp Cameras

Open Question

Just bought a Sharp VL-ZL at a yard sale. Great price but I'm beginning to see why. First came the 'dew' issue, but I read here what that is and what to try. The next day a new problem occurred, and this one's not only weird, but I can't find anyone online with a similar issue. The cassette door will not stay closed with a tape inserted. Take the tape out and it closes fine. Any thoughts? Thanks.

SOURCE: Lens cover sticks closed.

If you're careful this problem is a relatively easy fix for many digital cameras. The design of the lens cover mechanism is usually simple and very similar throughout camera brands. Here's an example fix for a Canon A400 with similar problems:

Dew has condensed in the camera. Eject the cassette but leave the cassette door open.remove the battery . Borrow a hair drier . set it to optimum temperature(not vey hot but but hot enough to cause discomfort when blown on fingers). direct the hot air through the cassette compartment door for about five minutes. reattach the battery and reinsert the tape.
Good Luck,

I'm looking for the manual camera or camcorder SHARP VL-HL50, this I bought in Japan in the year 1995.


That model was only sold in Japan and there was never an english manual published. The best you can do is to get the manual for a similar model number. Try here:

What is the actual procedure to open up the sharp to be fixed for dew problem


I presume you have allowed this camera to get wet from dew. If so you might let it set in an area with moving warm air for a couple days, I have heard of using a hair dryer, but I haven't done this, Usually if the inside gets wet you have a dead camera, they will not tolerate miosture inside.
