Your video heads are clogged or broken. Most likely if you will purchase a mini-dv head cleaning tape and use it, your problem will be solved.

Dropped my Leica


Hi,

Try the steps given below:
1 Remove the memory card, then install the new batteries, when you turn it on it should work.
2 The next thing to try is examining both the battery and flash card door. There's usually a little switch on both doors that activates when the doors are closed. It will be a little piece of plastic on the door that pushes in on a pin switch when the door is closed. Closely examine both doors to try to identify these switches. A lot of times that little plastic nib wears down or breaks off, but can easily be a jury rigged with a small glued-on replacement.

If you still face the problem then there is some internal problem in camera, you need to take to service center to get it repaired.

Hope this helps.

Hi Donald. not sure how many calls you get from


The fault seems to be in the sensor and the mode switch of the loading system which is connected with the main controller processor and loading driver.
This can be a failure of the tape end detector which is a IR - infra red- emitter which is placed in the center of the tape tray and MUST feed continuous signal to the END IR detectors placed at either ends.
Also the tape seems to load with a false detection of the cassette within when the tray is closed for this reason of the failure along with a possible misplaced mode switch settings. This triggers to make the loading move without a reason and so can be due to failure of the the mode switch or unbalanced settings.You will need some experience to remove the tray unit, then check on the IR sensors and also check the settings of the loading drive and mode switch.

I have a Sharp ViewcamZ VL-Z900. DEW error


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 may have loaded film roll that has already been taken?


Usually when you finish exposing a roll of film, you rewind it until you are sure it is all wound into the cassette. There is a change in the sound as the end of the roll leaves the camera. An exposed roll would have no film sticking out of the cassette. A new unexposed roll will have a bit of film sticking out of the cassette to pull across the ack to the take up roll.

I have a sony handycam - dcr-pc109e. When viewing a tape, there are grey horizontal bars across th screen that have just appeared. I cannot seem to get rid of them. Any ideas please?


Gray horizontal lines appears when video heads in camera got dirty / clogged.
Use good quality video cleaner cassette to clean video heads, problem will resolve.

Display Screen is White


I would check the wires connented to the display screen. they run from the bottom to the screen.
You have disassemble the camera.
I would think first before tring this.
Remove 3 screws on bottom, 1 in battery compartment, and 1 at very top of usb flap (look good).
Now slide the side piece starting at the usb flap then apply pressure to top and away from unit.
now look for 1 silver and three black screws (facing back and front, look good).
See the screen look at the bottom follow the wires to the connector on the very bottom and check that. Remember to replace battery door first if it fell off during process.
*TEST NOTE: You can place batteries in and place a penny across the bottom to test before you put it back together.

Okay well if the images are okay on the PC and don't have any black lines across them it's just the LCD screen. Very expensive to replace and unnecessary if it's still working okay, it's a shame it wasn't still under it's 1 year guarantee; unless you extended it that is.. and you could take it back to the shop for repair or replacement.
