Why doi have grey lines across my Sharp camcorder VL z7 when It on play back. Theres sound breakage as well. Can someone tell me why?

Do you get the grey line when you play back incamera ?
Have you transferred the file outside the camcorder ?

If you get the grey line in both, invariably the recording head needs cleaning.

Power on the ViewCam.
Eject the tape.
Use a soft lint free cloth and generally clean the head.
The head of the large metallic cylindrical thing placed slightly titled.
It is right at the bottom of the camera beyond those small posts.
If your finger cannot approach, use a swab with mild spirit/alcohol.
Let it dry a minute and then record a fresh material and try.
Please reply if it helped or not.

This could be a fault with the built-in microphone.

One thing to try before condemning the camera is to plug in an external microphone and see if the noise disappears.


Good luck

When recording it shows that it is recording but we can't see anything. If we play back what we think we might have recorded we can only hear the sound but not see anything.

Follow the steps below to troubleshoot this issue.

IMPORTANT: If additional model-specific instructions are needed to perform any of the steps below, refer to the operating instructions of the camcorder. The instruction manual is available in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony eSupport Web site.
  1. Ensure a fully-charged battery is inserted or connect the AC power adapter.
  2. Turn the camera on to the VTR or PLAYBACK mode.
  3. Insert a cassette tape with recorded video into the camcorder.
  4. Ensure the cassette tape is rewound to the beginning of the video recording.
  5. Begin playing the cassette tape.
  6. If your camcorder has an LCD screen, try adjusting the brightness or contrast.
  7. If there is still no picture on the LCD or viewfinder, reset the camcorder to factory specifications

What are the differences in the record modes? (HQ, SP, & LP)

The amount of recording time on a disc depends on the recording mode selected. The approximate recording time for each of these modes is listed below:

  • HQ (High Quality): Recordable time is up to 20 minutes.
  • SP (Standard Play): Recordable time is up to 30 minutes.
  • LP (Long Play): Recordable time is up to 60 minutes.

  • NOTE: If you record in LP mode, the quality of the scenes may be degraded, or scenes with quick movement may appear with a block noise when you play back the disc.
