Thats great that you are technician. This dew sensor locates near video head assy area. you need to find it urself. this sensor looks like black carbon pattern on white cemented plate or yellowish flexible base. Main thing is it has only 2 points and can be recognise easily. just remove it and place 1k or 820 ohms resistor there. I am not sure about resistor value because it depends on circuit requirement. Hope this info helps you out.

I have a sharp vl-z300 camcorder which is displaying an e007 error can you help


The 007 error is associated with dew sense and is a fairly routine repair.

PC board traces open at System Control IC, and will need to be hard-wired. I would suspect that any reputable electronics service facility should be able to perform this repair.

To find a Sharp authorized center in your area, contact Sharp support at sharpusa.com/CustomerSupport.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this free answer and leave a testimonial).

Whot does it mean when dew on screen and turns off just after


"Dew" means there is condensation (moisture) in the camera. The camera may refuse to operate until it is thoroughly dried out.

Sharp vl-z8 dew light keeps coming on


It seems that the due detector can suffer from bad soldering or soldering alteration after few months of use.

1. The (ideal but uneasy) solution consist to fix this solder by making a clean new one, I personally did it, and it worked for a few months without a problem anymore ; but then it came back again.

2. The other solution consist in short-circuiting the dew detector to eradicate the problem.
Of course, it will also mean that when real dew will happen you may use the video tape recorder when you shouldn't, but at least you should not see the problem coming back again some months later.

To know more about this dew detector circuit and how to fix it the way you want go there:

Hope this will help as it helped me,
Good luck,
Fabien.

Camcorder Error


for a quick fix I usually override it by slightly opening the tape when its being loaded, i think its a sensor issue. my cams been rendered useless because of this stupid error, I cant even sell it now because it only works 10% of the time and that's usually when im just checking out the cam, only when I need it the most does it screw up on me
