Question about Video Cameras
How to I eject a tape that won't eject. I left it in for awhile and when I turn on the camera it says eject tape. When I push the button it won't eject. Is there another way to trigger the eject mechanism so I can remove the tape? i have an old sharp viewcam VL-E31 and the tape just wont eject. also, how can i put the tapes onto videos or dvds??
Assuming the record tab is in the correct position, download the manual for the VL-AH150U, very close to the 151U.
Page 10 of the manual shows the normal reasons for the "eject cassette" message. If not, I would call Sharp support at
1-800-BE-SHARP (237-4277) for referral to a local repair center.
Let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: I have a Sharp Viewcam
The chances are that a switchcontact or motor is not engaging, and the unit will have to be opened up to be fixed.
Oftentimes, with these older units, switch or relay contacts become oxidized over time, and fail. It sounds crazy, but one fix (without having to open the camcorder) is to give it a bump with the palm of a hand. I used to do withis with my old Olympus, and that's the only way I could get it to work, without spending a few hours taking it apart.
You can always go by a tv or camera repair shop and see what they think. Get an estimate before having it repaired, since it might be better just to upgrade.
You can contact Sharp for support here:
Good luck, and hope this helps.
