If it still works ..I dont think this should have cause any problems ....I guess the power issues came from poor quality of the accumulators or better from a not that great formating of them when they were brand new....another cause may be the age ...after all even in mobile phones , those rechargeable ones have a limited life time ...and his is the way they behave .....I mean they begin to last less and less.. a solution might be new ones...or even try to never let them inside the camera even when the power is off...cause all cameras empty them batteries when they aren;t even on ...

I have sharp VL E630 the battery is charged I put it in the camcorder the screnn fickered a couple times the went black and now nothing? Allan


Many times the contacts that hold the battery in place become compressed and they no longer make good contact. This results in not only the battery no charging often, but the camera not working. Make sure that the metal tabs are holding the battery securely.

The other possibility is a short. This is much harder to troubleshoot and may require you take the camera in for repair. But if the device has a short, it will shut the camera down.

Battery or Charger bad?


If you persistently leave the batteries discharged, it is unlikely that they will be able to hold a full charge. You should re-charge your batteries at least once a month, even if unused. Put it on your calendar. BTW 2 years old is hardly 'brand new'.

Sharp view cam


This style camcorder has an adapter that feeds off of the battery charger...the charger plugs into the wall on top of the charger you place the battery and if you look on the front of the charger you will/should have an outlet that looks like two holes. This charger should have come with an adapter that looks like the battery only it is attached to a cord. You should than be able to open the battery compartment and insert the corded (battery) and presto it works...if you do not have one you can contact Sharpusa.com

Dew


Model: VL-Z800 Sharp ViewcamZ

I was in Shanghai in Dec 2008 over Christmas and I experienced the 'DEW' problem. The cassette tape door would not close either. I did not experience this before even after 2 years. I suppose the cold & the rain water causes the dew to accumulate in the CAM.

Solution.
I did the reset by taking out the small tiny battery situated just above the big battery. The small battery has a cover. Pull it up & Get the small battery out and the whole camera resets. Re-entering the date & time is the only inconvenience. After reseting, I could use it again, but not for long as the problem comes back. When I came back to Malaysia (Temp 32-34 degrees celsius), the DEW problem disappappers.

You could also try this method to get rid of the dew. Buy a small sack of rice. Yes rice, the uncooked ones. Cut open a small opening just big enough to put your CamCorder into the sack. If you do not want to get your CAM dirty, wrap the CAM with tissue paper. Close the opening with a musking tape and leave it a few days. The dew should disappear from the CAM. It works for mobile phones too when it is accidentally drop into water. Of cause you should not switch on the mobile when it is still wet. It will self distruct if you do. Try the rice solution for a week before you on your mobile.

Sharp Camcorder VL-NZ100E battery doesn't seem to charge


2.7 volts is too low. Usually camcorders use battery at least 6 volts. Problems with rechargeables especially NiCds and NiMH, a cell will be shorted. for 6 volts pack, there are 5 cells in series (5 pcs x 1.2 volts with load , 1.35 no load). If you are measuring only 2.7 volts, it is highly possible that 3 cells are dead. As for the charger, if the same charger is used to power the camcorder and you said the the camcorder operates using the adaptor, this means that the charger is OK. You can ZAP the battery back to life but I will not recommend. It can be dangerous. If you can buy the battery, I suggest you do it since the old battery, even when zapped, will not provide enough juice anymore.
