How to remove the tape from a dead Sharp VL-AH151U camcorder

I was given the camcorder with no power cord or adapter and a dead battery. All I want to do is to remove the cassette tape. Is there a way to do this manually, ie without power?

Many, many thanks

    Sorry.

    You have power to eject the cassette. Online battery costs are not too high.

SOURCE: Sharp Viewcam VL-AH151U keeps saying "eject cassette"

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.

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

I have glued a small plastic square over the "switch" on the cassette that presses down more on the sensor in the camera so it can sense that on the cassette and it should clear the tape cassette. Better still have a camera tech adjust the sensor in the camera. Good luck

Make sure the little red tab on top of the tape is set to record and not save. The camcorder will not let you record it its set to save
