I'll say don't bother, just try to find a Hi8 unit for playback. Office surplus recycling center in town? You mignt find one there. The best bet short of new is you. Any friends that have one in the closet not being used? Will they sell it to you for $50 or so. Have they burned those old memories to DVD? How? Have they finished? Can you schedule time later to dump their old tapes to a potable USB hard drive in exchange for letting you do yours now? It might be a good anniversary/birthday/xmas gift. They can sort and burn to DVD at their leisure. Seek a Sony or Cannon. A deck(vtr) might be in better condition. You'll be in good shape if you already have an analog to digital converter box(to USB) or board(PCI bus). Format any external USB drive used for video capture as NTFS so you can make files as big as you need. Go get 'em.

What type of cassette do i need for a sharp VL-A10 viewcam 8


You need to use a tape that says 8mm or Video8 only. I have provided a link to the type of tape that we would use.

http://www.amazon.com/Sony-MP-Video8-tape-120min/dp/B0009WUCG6/ref=sr_1_7?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1284056100&sr=1-7

There are tapes that say Hi8 and Dig8 on them. These tapes will not work properly in your camcorder because they are the wrong format. Your camcorder would probably chew the tape at some point if you tried to use this kind.

Hope this has helped.

I HAVE a sharp viewcam vl-h860 hi8


If you're pretty sure the camera is just dead and have already resigned yourself to buying a new one you could just pry the door off and get your wedding tape out. There are lots of places that can transfer it to VHS or DVD for a small fee. On another note, I have a camera just like it, have lost the AV cable and can't seem to find a replacement online. Care to sell me yours? If so send me an email at turnerts@charter.net. Thanks!

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.

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.
