Re: Camcorder Error

I had the same problem with my Viewcam Z. I couln't do anything with it anymore. Eventually got so annoyed that i actually called sharp to figure this thing out. From what technical support told me when you see E007 that means that there is some internal malfunction and the only way to repair the camera is to take it to a SHARP technition. so the question is would you pay alot of money to get this low end camera fixed?? i wouldn't..

Re: 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

Re: Camcorder Error

With my sharp vl-a10u i have an e007 error in the right bottom corner of my screen, it makes no sense and is bothering me so much. It started when i was filming going down the stairs and jumped the last 2 steps, (i landed hard and put some shock on it) than it stopped recording and the error popped up. Please help me.

Re: Camcorder Error

Seen this error maybe a 100 times, nobody knows why it comes up or what does it mean. I suggest you go get a special alcohol to clean video heads, and swab at the head a few times. If it does no good, perhaps get on the phone with sharp and tell them there are plenty of people interested to know what exactly e007 means. Please post on any developments.

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.

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.
