Hi there, I have a sharp vl-a111h, I opened it & put in cassette, when I closed it i caught it and the flip down part caught in it and it jammed, I opened the flip down part but it just whirrs now...


If the set had been kept off without use for a long period of time it is possible that the mechanism would have jammed up or the drives would have lost the contacts, or a possible servo or loading drive fault.
Since the tape was chewed up as it was inserted on the tray, I think the take up spool, the reel winder , the capstan can be suspected areas.
You might have to open the tray and mechanism to confirm- this is a delicate mechanism and must be removed with a lot of care..

Inserted a cassette, get the message "cannot record cassette" "protect tab". A little grey piece (probably the protect tab) fell out the camera when I set it down. Not sure where this...


On the mini-DV tapes I have, the protect tab is a slider- it does not come out of the cassette. If you look at the back edge of the tape, where the long label goes, the protect tab is at the right hand end. When it is set to prevent recording it will look like a little square hole, but there should be a tiny edge of the tab showing (mine is green) which you can pull across with a fingernail or sharp object to cover the hole and allow recording.

Sharp Viewcam VL-AH151U keeps saying "eject cassette" why is that? How or where can i send this to get fixed?


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.
