This is the head cleaner that you would need for your camcorder. These are the best! We use this particular one in our repair shop and they last a really long time. I have some that are over 5 years old and they still work.

http://www.amazon.com/Sony-V825CLD-Camcorder-Cleaning-Cassette/dp/B00005TQKQ

When using a head cleaner, play it for only 5 to 10 seconds at a time. If there is improvement, but it still doesn't look exactly right, run the head cleaner again for another 5 to 10 seconds. Repeat as necessary. The reason for this is because the tape is semi-abrasive and will wear down your heads (over time) if it is run for long periods of time.

Hope this has helped

Most likely, your heads are clogged - you need to use an 8mm tape head cleaner. Be careful where you buy as there are a lot of chinese knock-offs that are junk. We do have a supply of the original tape head cleaners from Sony. Contact Us at AVRepair com

Suddenly my Sharp VL-Z100 can't record or play any of my cassettes! And after I finish to try to record something a red icon with an X inside appears on the screen. Anyona can help me please?


Clean up your head with the mini Dv head cleaner cassette. If still problem persists, give it to company personnal for repairing this problem, because this is the problem for the head. The head is the costly part in camcorder. So please give it to authorized person other than the local technician.

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.

These units are getting old. Sound as though some capacitors are going out. Repair bill could go to around $300. Consider a new camcorder.

Check to see if you have a source of power to your Viewcam. We suggest using either the supplied battery or the A/C Adaptor. For further assistance, contact us at 1-800-BE-SHARP.
