Question about Sharp Viewcam VL-Z3U Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Open Question

Sharp VL-Z3U E007, dew problem, mini dvc problem

Initially, E007 error. Authorized Sharp repair shop said was d/t dew error, that Sharp was honoring the problem as was inherent to this unit. Have sent back three times--capstan motor replaced twice. ?? Same E007 error. Now will not even accept TDK tapes. Sharp tells me dew error has nothing to do with E007 error, no longer authorizing repair. As repair shop has been securing authorization, I've no idea what problems have been related. However, the problems have been consistently the same from the outset. Sharp doesn't make the tapes, they tell me--say no longer make this camcorder. They blame the tapes I'm using. Cannot record nor play the 50-75 tapes I have. I don't reuse tapes. Would like to be able to download to my comuter. Sharp personnel indicated couldn't be done. Radio Shack said could, purchased firewire cable, can't get to download. Help! Purchased camera in 2004, problems began within the first year, but presumed warranty repairs would remedy. Boy, was I wrong.

SOURCE: Help!! Can not connect my Sharp ViewCam Z VL-Z3U Through FireWire

You've probably fixed this by now, but since nothing is posted:

I have an older Sharp digital camcorder, one of the first. It's the VL-NZ100 and Sharp does not support transferring the video to a PC with this camcorder because they did not include the cable to do it. That said, I WAS told by Sharp that I could figure it out myself if I got a fireware (IEEE) cable.

I got a very inexpensive IEEE-1394 firewire cable, set my camcorder to Tape/VCR, connected the cable to my PC and my camcorder, and Windows Vista recognized it. It asked if I wanted to transfer the video and it just walked me through the whole thing! This is built in to Vista, so if you have the operating system, you are set.

If you don't, I don't know if you can download Windows Photo Gallery from Microsoft. I know that you can download Windows Live Photo Gallery but I don't know if that has the same functionality. You didn't mention what operating system you have.

And FYI, I didn't need drivers.

I have a sharp vl-z300 camcorder which is displaying an e007 error can you help


The 007 error is associated with dew sense and is a fairly routine repair.

PC board traces open at System Control IC, and will need to be hard-wired. I would suspect that any reputable electronics service facility should be able to perform this repair.

To find a Sharp authorized center in your area, contact Sharp support at sharpusa.com/CustomerSupport.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this free answer and leave a testimonial).

My cam say in the display dew and shut off


Hi,

It sounds like you have moisture in the camera. Place it in a warm dry place for about 24 hours. Also make sure you take the battery out of the camera too.



Regards.

What doe DEW mean? The "DEW" sign keeps coming on and then shutting off..


DEW sign indicates high humidity level inside the camcorder. What you experiencing has nothing to do with humidity, It is a faulty connector on a junction board. Sharp has fix for it.
