Question about Sharp Viewcam VL-AH151U Camcorder

1 Answer

Canon mv300i I use the camera to capture. When inserting the tape the message came, 'remove tape' . I've removed it and put it back. Now the the camera doesnot eject/remove my tape. I've tried removing accu and DCcable and lithim-baterrie for a minute and then connect it , but the camera is 'dead' and stil doesnot remove my tape. Last thing what might help is the reset button/spot, but but it seem that the camera hasn't got one. What options are left? I hope you help me, I need the footage for an assignment Tam

I have glued a small plastic square over the "switch" on the cassette that presses down more on the sensor in the camera so it can sense that on the cassette and it should clear the tape cassette. Better still have a camera tech adjust the sensor in the camera. Good luck

Camera says "Please e-operate after pushing reset


Remove the battery and keep aside for about 15 minutes. Now after inserting reset the camera., if the fault occurs., remove the tape and use a hair dryer to blow into the tape tray section/drum section.
It is possible that the dew sensor is working to indicate moisture, if so the heat will change the fault.
Also if the hall IC's within the drum is faulty the drum will not move and so will indicate a fault-- service.

When I try to take a picture my camera will not take the picture and a message keeps poping up saying that my memort card is protected. Why is it doing this and how can I fix this?


The problem *may* be that the memory card is defective - but is it much more likely that the card is simply "locked" (or "protected") You can check for this by removing the memory card from the camera if it isn't already, and look along the left edge of the card. Find a small tab and slide it forward (to the unlock position) and carefully slip the card back into the camera and try again. If it still reports that it is protected, carefully remove the card to see if the tab has moved back to the locked position. It is possible that if the tab is moved when inserting the card, it could just as easily be moved back when removing, too - so it may not looked like it moved.

Either way, if the tab is moving (or suspected to be be moving) to the locked position during the insertion and the unlocked position during the withdrawal process, you could place a small amount of tape along the card edge - over the tab - and carefully insert the card again (you might have to remove some tape to allow the card to fit into to slot, depending how much room there is). If you never lock the card (I never do); you could put a very small drop of super glue on the tab to hold it in place. Wait for the glue to set completely before inserting into the camera and try again.

If this fails, you should try again with a different card.

I hope this helps!

Head cleaning required


i have the JVC MiniDV Digital Video Cleaning Cassette. I began having trouble when I was shooting DV24P and when I went to playback I noted audio dropouts. I'm using SONY Premium DVM60 tapes. I began having Head Cleaning Required message. I have ran the Cleaning Cassette and the message disappears, but even trying a brand new tape, switching to DV playback i get the error message. Luckily, the shoot i was on the master audio was being captured by a secondary device and we were able to simply use the video from my camera. Since then, I was able to play & capture both the video & audio previously recorded in HDV30P and I didnt receive an error message. Now though I cannot record any DV audio without dropouts. When I tested just moments ago, I was able to record HDV and both video & audio were clean, but during playback I still received the Head Cleaning message. Is the record head different from the playback head? Can you manually clean the heads by removing the plastic door cover with a lintfree cotton swab and rubbing alcohol (obviously disconnecting and removing all power & powering off prior to cleaning), the same way any previous machine heads were cleaned in our stations? I think I may have got a batch of bad tapes that may have gunked up one of the heads some where and its getting missed by the cleaning tape. Is is possible that the head has been scratched, and will require replacement. If yes, is there any way to look at the head and detect this?

E04 unit in safeguard mode


I tried every method I could find from people posting on the web, but the method that worked for me is this.

1. Eject the tape and close the tape holder.
2. Turn the camera off and remove the battery.
3. Put the battery back in. Leave the camera off.
4. Open the tape holder.
5. Slide the tape in, but as you press the holder in to accept the tape, keep your finger pressing in on the holder, being careful not to slow the tape holder from moving downward.
6. Turn the camera on.
7. If it doesn't work the first time, press more firmly to help the tape holder accept the tape.

That's it. This method seems to work for me and lets me use the camera for a long while. If the camera is sitting unused for more than a few hours, I have to do it again. And each time I insert a tape, I make sure that I keep pressing as the tape holder lowers the tape.

"Re-attach the power source" but tape is stuck, door open


I had the same problem. First, depress the reset button, located on the camera body (where the LCD screen closes over it). It is hard to see at first. It is important that the camera be set to the OFF position. When the camera is whirring after the reset, then hit the EJECT button so the tape comes out. Take the tape out and insert it back. That's it. My camcorder worked fine and let me record or plaback once I followed those steps.

'Remove the Tape' message


if you havent found a solution already, basically it means your camera is screwed up and has dirt or something inside it. so you have to take it to a service centre. :)
