Dew has condensed in the camera. Eject the cassette but leave the cassette door open.remove the battery . Borrow a hair drier . set it to optimum temperature(not vey hot but but hot enough to cause discomfort when blown on fingers). direct the hot air through the cassette compartment door for about five minutes. reattach the battery and reinsert the tape.
Good Luck,

I have a Sony DSC-T1, it has the vertical colored lines on the LCD screen. Which i found where it was the CCD Sensor, which they have a recall on this. Would I be able to get this fixed free of charge?


Problems with the LCD screen are usually the result of dropping the camera or water in the screen, and very rarely consistent flaws that warrant a recall. If your camera is still under warranty, however, you will most likely be able to get this fixed free of charge.

When i turn the camera on the word Dew flashes for about 3 seconds then the camera turns off,


Hi - Sorry your having problems with your camera. I'm assuming it's a video camera. the DEW warning is telling you there is excessive moisture in the camera. I suggest you take out the tape and leave the tape door open in a dry warm place for a couple of hours.
You could also take a hair dryer on LOW and keeping it at least six inches from the camera move it back and forth over the tape compartment for a minute or two.
Sometimes the DEW message comes on when there is no such problem which is a problem with the camera that will probably require service.

Good Luck, Mikeywaf.

Flash is'nt working on my Moultrir Camra


There is not going to be an easy fix for this problem. An electronic component is going to have to be replaced. It is easy for a camera flash to burn itself out from dew or moisture condensation inside the camera. All it takes is one drop of water in the right spot when the camera flash is fired, and the 300v tidal wave from the flash capacitor crashes into the sensitive 5v microchips(only 20v is needed to damage them.) I would sell it "as-is" or "broken" online somewhere to try to recover some money.

Is there a way to convert Sharp Viewcam Z, mini-dv, model vl-z1 to infrared?


I did not realize it meant buying a membership or paying...I have not fixed the problem but am not interested in joining. I don't think there should be a charge to simply ask a question. But, I understand if you are a business that requires that.
Thanks anyway...especially for responding.

What is the actual procedure to open up the sharp to be fixed for dew problem


I presume you have allowed this camera to get wet from dew. If so you might let it set in an area with moving warm air for a couple days, I have heard of using a hair dryer, but I haven't done this, Usually if the inside gets wet you have a dead camera, they will not tolerate miosture inside.
