Sharp Viewcam VL-AH151U keeps saying "eject cassette"
Assuming the record tab is in the correct position, download the manual for the VL-AH150U, very close to the 151U.
Page 10 of the manual shows the normal reasons for the "eject cassette" message. If not, I would call Sharp support at
1-800-BE-SHARP (237-4277) for referral to a local repair center.
Let me know if this helps.
VL-H86 PROTECT TAB IS ON AND ALL THERE IS ON THE
Let me reach back into the past here!
Well, protection tabs are on the cassettes. Video8 & Hi8 used a built in re-usable tab (unlike VHS, Beta etc which used a once only break-it-off tab, a method originating near 50 years ago with audio cassettes)
In reverse of the that method, when the tab is out (or slid over) recordings can be made on 8mm's including D8's and not when the tab shows.
they are located on the back edge of the cassette usually with indicator icons in the plastc of the case to help.
Recorded new tapes show lines or tracking problems
Hi - This is the most common problem with film camcorders. The heads are dirty. you need to get yourself a head cleaning cassette and carefully follow the directions. Since it sounds like you haven't cleaned it in a while or at all would give it a second pass with the cleaning cassette.
Analog camcorders in general specify that the heads should be cleaned every 10-15 hrs.of use. It's possible it's another problem but unlikely and this is a cheap way to find out.
Good Luck and thanks for visiting Fix Ya.
I need mine fixed about how much will it cost?
Hello - It's impossible to say without a tech looking at it first, but at the very least 50-60 Dollars (USD) and up to a couple of hundred dollars for any major repair. Labor rates at a video repair shop average about $50-60 per hour
Not to be pushy, but it might be time to invest in a digital unit. Analog tapes degrade after a few years and were never meant for archival purposes. You might want to investigate having your analog video transferred to a digital format on DVDs to make sure you have them for a long time.
Again, sorry if I strayed off from your question and displeased you with my ideas. Just trying to help.

Cameras requests similar AC power supply either 110 volts or 220 volts. The cables connection area should only fit into the camera port provided allowing the power outlet area to s do the rest.
