Can not watch VCR on My Sharp camcorder model no.VL-E66U

My Sharp camcorder model no. VL-E66U stop playing the recorded footage. I used the camcorder about a week ago when the dew/clog light began flashing. At first I thought it was the battery light but when I took a closer look I saw it was the dew/clog. I have no idea what this light means but I know that I can not watch anything I record now. The camera is working fine and the recorder seems to be working fine. Only when I try to review the footage it is very fuzzy and I can not make out the objects. I really need help my boyes 1st basketball game is this Friday and I want to capture it on film.

I let it sit overnight and when I opened the door I nudged the part that holds the tape up. I got the tape out but I think it is still frozen. I will try a different tape and hope it still works. I'll post results.
Thanks
Kate

SOURCE: Dew Alarm

Many times dew sensor stops giving moisture signal if hot air blows in open cassette compartment for 3-4 minutes from distance through hair dryer.
and some times dew sensor needs to be replaced to stop giving dew signal.

the VL-AH150U manual should be very close to the VL-AH-151U.
Let me know if this works for you or we can try something else. Thanks.

"Dew" sitting on my Video Camera


Dew Formation
What is “dew formation”?
When cold water is poured into a glass,
dew drops form on the glass. This clinging
of water drops is called dew formation.
When dew forms in your camcorder.
Dew will gradually form on the head drum
of your camcorder and make the video
tape stick to the head. This causes
damage both to the head and the tape.
When dew forms, recording and playback
may not function properly.
Dew is likely to form in the following
circumstances:
—When moving the camcorder from a
cold place to a warm place.
—When placing the camcorder in a cold
room which is then heated rapidly.
—When moving the camcorder outdoors
from an air conditioned room or car.
—When placing the camcorder in the
direct path of air
blowing from an air
conditioner.
—When placing the
camcorder in a
humid room.
How to prevent trouble.
When using the camcorder in a place
where dew is likely to form, allow the
camcorder and the video tape to
acclimate to the surroundings for about
one hour.
For example, when bringing the
camcorder indoors after skiing, place it in
a plastic bag.
1Be sure to tightly seal the plastic bag
containing the camcorder.
2Remove the bag when the air temperature
inside it reaches the temperature
of the room.
“Dew” warning feature
If dew forms, the word “DEW” flashes on
the screen, and the power will automatically
turn off in approximately 10 seconds.
Plastic bag
1If “DEW” flashes, remove the cassette,
leave the cassette compartment open,
and wait for a few hours to allow the
camcorder to acclimate to the
surrounding temperature.
2To use the camcorder again, turn on the
power after waiting for a few hours. Be
sure that “DEW” has disappeared.
3Do not insert a cassette while “DEW” is
flashing; this may result in damage to
the tape.
4Since dew forms gradually, it may take
10 to 15 minutes before the dew
warning feature engages.

I have a sharp camcorder model vl-e785u and I am needing to know if there is somehow to download my tapes to a computer to burn to a cd.


I don't know about downloading to a computer, but you can buy a VCR/DVD recorder for about $140, put the VHS-C cartridge in the adapter and transfer to a DVD, or plug your Camcorder into a DVD recorder (about $119) and copy. It couldn't hurt to check out some of the transfer services that could do a little editing and copying for a modest fee.
