Seen this error maybe a 100 times, nobody knows why it comes up or what does it mean. I suggest you go get a special alcohol to clean video heads, and swab at the head a few times. If it does no good, perhaps get on the phone with sharp and tell them there are plenty of people interested to know what exactly e007 means. Please post on any developments.

I let it sit overnight and when I opened the door I nudged the part that holds the tape up. I got the tape out but I think it is still frozen. I will try a different tape and hope it still works. I'll post results.
Thanks

SOURCE: Replacement charger for Sharp Viewcam VL-Z3

As long as you can obtain a charger that is rated the same as the one for your camera it will not be a problem unless the original charger is a microprocessor controlled charger that has the ability to control and change the charging current as the battery charges.
A camera shop can check this out for you.
If it just a simple AC or DC charger, then you can simply use the connector from your original charger and join it either by soldering or with a screw terminal block(which you wrap in Insulating tape once fitted).
The main thing you need to be CERTAIN of is as to whether the original charger is an AC or a DC type.
This will be clearly indicated on the label on the charger.

My sharp viewcam Model # VL-E30U has a snowy picture when I try to view pictures from from a casset


Sounds like dirty video heads.
Try running an appropriate head cleaning tape. After two or three attempts if there is no improvement it's time to see a tech.

Sharp viewcam VL-A10


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.

My sharp hi8 camcorder will not produce a picture unless it is in the review mode. What can I do?


The loading mechanism is not completing its cycle. That will cause the tape to be ejected as a safety feature so no damage occurs to the tape. This unit will require a "rebuild" to retime the loading mechanism.

I can't get a picture on my television when I have my Viewcam connected into my VCR.


Make sure the Viewcam is connected (cable supplied) to an A/V input on your VCR. Set your VCR to the Line In or Auxiliary mode. Turn the Viewcam to Camera or VCR mode if playing back tape. Viewcam image should appear, if not call 1-BE-SHARP.

Can an adaptor be used to play my 8mm tape in my VHS VCR?


With the Sharp Viewcam ®, there's no need to use an adaptor to play 8 mm tape. Simply connect the Viewcam ® to the TV or VCR for playback. You can even use your VCR to make a copy onto VHS tape.
