Question about Sharp Viewcam VL-Z7U Mini DV Digital Camcorder
There are horizontal gray bars, evenly spaced, across the playback on the cam-corder display, and also if I download the video onto my computer. I tried new tapes, didn't help. Supposedly the heads may be mis-aligned. Can I re-align them myself? Thanks
I hate to say this but you sould bring it for repair to a professional instead of trying to repair it yourself and actually damaging your camcorder. If simple maintenance
repairs don't work like incerting cleaning tapes for 10 seconds.
Please bring it to someone who knows what they are doing.
You'll get your camera back working perfectly for a small fee.

When you see gray bars that means that your drum is dirty use a soft head cleaning tape for 20 secs and with the posts they are visible by removing the cassette cover there is one for audio it looks like a minus sign on the post and the other is for video and it has a plus sign on top you would need to use a phillips head screw driver with the middle cut out or a pair of twezzers and when you adjust it you turn it a very very little bit to the right start with the one with the minus sign and when the problem goes away when viewing you turn it back just a hair. when you look at the posts you will see in the middle that there is a raised spot that why you would need the tool that i described.
