Question about Sharp Viewcam VL-Z1 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Moisture is an enemy of any tape based system. The moisture can cause the tape to "stick" to the rotating heads damaging both the tape and heads. This is why there is a "dew" sensor inside the tape compartment. The screen message indicates that the sensor has detected an excess mount of moisture and won't let the unit load a tape until the problem is cleared. Try leaving the unit open and pointing a hair dryer at it from a distance of about 12"-18". The warm dry air should remove any moisture that exists. Should this not resolve the problem, there is a defect in the sensor and it might need to be replaced.
