Do not operate your vcr in damp conditions or move it between rooms with different temperatures without letting it get used to new temp before switching on

do not switch of at the wall socket as vcr's have a little low power heater inside that keeps dew (dampness) away

I have a Sharp ViewcamZ VL-Z900. DEW error


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,

Shut down "dew"


This happens when you take camera from cold(er) environment to warmer environment, dew forms on the recording head, so as a precaution the unit locks up. The solutions is to leave the unit switched on and wait till the dew incator goes out( can take up to an hour) I found this out when on holiday, i would go from an air conditioned room to bright sunshine and it happened all the time.

Dew means...humidity in camera. Power goes to Off for protection because tape or video head can be damaged if humidity at video head. Blow Dryer for 2-3 minutes in camera while in cassette compartment is Open. Hope after that camera will be ok.

It is possible that the dew sensor is faulty or more likely that the connection from teh sensor to the rest of the camera is faulty. This unit will require repair. If you can soler, you may be able to resolve this. I'll look up your model to see how bad the access is to the sensor.

I had this same problem, and believe it or not, it is very simple to fix.
The fault is a dry joint on the dew sensor circuit.
This can be fixed permanently with a soldering iron, or if you don't want to kill the camcorder you can do a temporary fix each time the message occurs.

If you remove the tape and look down inside the camcorder, towards the front, next to a green circuit board, you will see two small blobs of solder with a wire running from each.

The image below shows the most likely position that needs either soldered or pushing in with a screwdriver or other fine metal device. You can remove the batteries first, for extra safety.061fb70.jpg

Dew


Model: VL-Z800 Sharp ViewcamZ

I was in Shanghai in Dec 2008 over Christmas and I experienced the 'DEW' problem. The cassette tape door would not close either. I did not experience this before even after 2 years. I suppose the cold & the rain water causes the dew to accumulate in the CAM.

Solution.
I did the reset by taking out the small tiny battery situated just above the big battery. The small battery has a cover. Pull it up & Get the small battery out and the whole camera resets. Re-entering the date & time is the only inconvenience. After reseting, I could use it again, but not for long as the problem comes back. When I came back to Malaysia (Temp 32-34 degrees celsius), the DEW problem disappappers.

You could also try this method to get rid of the dew. Buy a small sack of rice. Yes rice, the uncooked ones. Cut open a small opening just big enough to put your CamCorder into the sack. If you do not want to get your CAM dirty, wrap the CAM with tissue paper. Close the opening with a musking tape and leave it a few days. The dew should disappear from the CAM. It works for mobile phones too when it is accidentally drop into water. Of cause you should not switch on the mobile when it is still wet. It will self distruct if you do. Try the rice solution for a week before you on your mobile.
