Question about Sharp VL-H875U Hi-8 Analog Camcorder

Open Question

Hi Recently I purchased a Sharp VL-H875U used. It seems to record fine until I go to use the VCR feature. The video rolls like a regular VCR would do if the tracking adjustment was out of adjustment. Tried several new tapes, also ran the viewcam on adapter alone with the same results ...jumping and rolling video. The head inside looks clean as does the other parts the tape contacts. Any ideas? thanks Bill S

According to the manual the red X means the heads may be dirty or worn out. I was looking at the manual for the VL-A110U camcorder as it seems like the closest thing but the red X is pretty universal. Your older tapes are probably fine. Sometimes a small piece of tape gets stuck in the tape head and is not easily dislodged. I would tyr using the cleaning tape 10 seconds at a time maybe 3 times, waiting a couple of minutes between cleaning as the heads get hot. If that doesn't do it you will probably need to take it to a reputable repair shop to see if they can do something.
Manual for the VL-A110U is available here.

Dew Formation
What is “dew formation”?
When cold water is poured into a glass,
dew drops form on the glass. This clinging
of water drops is called dew formation.
When dew forms in your camcorder.
Dew will gradually form on the head drum
of your camcorder and make the video
tape stick to the head. This causes
damage both to the head and the tape.
When dew forms, recording and playback
may not function properly.
Dew is likely to form in the following
circumstances:
—When moving the camcorder from a
cold place to a warm place.
—When placing the camcorder in a cold
room which is then heated rapidly.
—When moving the camcorder outdoors
from an air conditioned room or car.
—When placing the camcorder in the
direct path of air
blowing from an air
conditioner.
—When placing the
camcorder in a
humid room.
How to prevent trouble.
When using the camcorder in a place
where dew is likely to form, allow the
camcorder and the video tape to
acclimate to the surroundings for about
one hour.
For example, when bringing the
camcorder indoors after skiing, place it in
a plastic bag.
1Be sure to tightly seal the plastic bag
containing the camcorder.
2Remove the bag when the air temperature
inside it reaches the temperature
of the room.
“Dew” warning feature
If dew forms, the word “DEW” flashes on
the screen, and the power will automatically
turn off in approximately 10 seconds.
Plastic bag
1If “DEW” flashes, remove the cassette,
leave the cassette compartment open,
and wait for a few hours to allow the
camcorder to acclimate to the
surrounding temperature.
2To use the camcorder again, turn on the
power after waiting for a few hours. Be
sure that “DEW” has disappeared.
3Do not insert a cassette while “DEW” is
flashing; this may result in damage to
the tape.
4Since dew forms gradually, it may take
10 to 15 minutes before the dew
warning feature engages.

Try cleaning the heads, but it seems like the heads may be faulty, you might need to replace the vcr, they don't cost much these days, the repair might cost more than a new vcr these days.

heres a cheap headcleaner, look for one at local shops, wallmart bestbuy and so on

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.

I have a sharp camcorder model vl-e785u and I am needing to know if there is somehow to download my tapes to a computer to burn to a cd.


I don't know about downloading to a computer, but you can buy a VCR/DVD recorder for about $140, put the VHS-C cartridge in the adapter and transfer to a DVD, or plug your Camcorder into a DVD recorder (about $119) and copy. It couldn't hurt to check out some of the transfer services that could do a little editing and copying for a modest fee.

Sharp VL-Z5 as a WebCam


You can but it requires a capture program to do it. You can't use it for chat sessions or IM programs such as Windows Live. Pinnacle Studio will allow you to record to hard drive directly through the firewire cable.

Disc error


I have this same problem so I called Sharp.  This model is  a little older.  When you buy the disks there is a number with an X after it.  If you buy the - R disk the number has to be 4X or less,  for the -RW it has to 2X or less.  Apparently they can still be bought at Office Depot or online.
