Question about Video Cameras

No viewfinder image

This Sharp Jet Zoom 12 Model VL-L310U had been used very little, in storage mostly and up to now worked very well. The battery finally quit holding a charge after about 6-7 years. Here is my problem description below.

I have no image in the view finder. I have connected it to AC/DC power and tried it with and without a VHS tape. It powers up ok on the VHS functions and all else seems ok, except for a flashing camcorder & key icon that flashes in the side window near the auto lock button. Page 16 of the owner's manual refers to this as an "alarm indicator" and says to "follow the alarm immediately" by going to page 17 where there is no mention of this issue.

Any ideas? Thanks, Bill Jacobs.

I have a Sharp VL-E760 viewcam LCD that records on 8mm tape. The battery no longer charges and I have a tape inside that wont come ojt because it needs the battery. Is the problem the charger itself


The problem is most likely the battery itself when you have finished using your kit and wish to put it away never put it away with a half or fully charged battery as it will not last always run it down and never leave a tape in either.

My Sharp Camcorder model number VL-H875U will not charge. I have tried a new charger and that will not work either. Any suggestions?


The battery pack is most likely a problem. Measure voltage across terminals of the battery, if reading is below 1V your battery has to be replaced. Part number of the replacement battery is UBATi0055TAZZ.

Camcorder gone bad


First a few questions:

1) Will the unit accept a tape or is it completely dead?

2) In camera mode, does the viewfinder work?

Thanks,
Dan

No Display on LCD


If you have used any kinda abresive cleaning product on your LCD screen is is most likely finished and needs to be replaced or it is faulty from the beggining. You must go for and exchange or a repair replacement of the LCD..

I do not get the estimated amount of recording time from my battery.


All battery times are estimates. Maximum battery time will be achieved by less frequent use of zoom, digital circuits and auto focus. We recommend following the instructions in your operator manual for proper recharging procedures for your battery.

How long does the battery last?


Battery life varies according to the Viewcam's ® operation. The use of zoom and other functions increase power consumption, so actual recording time may be reduced. Extended-life batteries may be purchased separately.
