20 Most Recent Sharp Viewcam VL-Z7U Mini DV Digital Camcorder Questions & Answers

Do you get the grey line when you play back incamera ? Have you transferred the file outside the camcorder ? If you get the grey line in both, invariably the recording head needs cleaning. Power on the ViewCam. Eject the tape. Use a soft lint free cloth and generally clean the head. The head of the large metallic cylindrical thing placed slightly titled. It is right at the bottom of the camera beyond those small posts. If your finger cannot approach, use a swab with mild spirit/alcohol. Let it dry a minute and then record a fresh material and try. Please reply if it helped or not.

Always use the camcorder with the battery and power button on.Does the cassette compartment close without the tape ? If yes. then we have hope.Now insert the tape and press to close the compartment as usual. Does it close or reject every time ?If it rejects, then very slightly nudge the three tiny figures of the mechanism where the two wheels of the tape fit.Now the tape will sit inside the compartment and lower itself.If it still ejects, then very slightly press the base metal (where the tape rests once loaded but) without the tape. This is the largest metal piece visible closest to the hinge and door.The tape will load properly now.You could face error DEW or 007. Both are known errors.DEW is really due to moisture in the air. Try on hot dry place.for 007 error, you would need to carefully clear with one index figure the reading head. Remember all parts of the camcorder are delicate and need carefull handling.Never use any tools, fluids, fabric or tissue.Let me know if this solves.I am looking for USB driver for Windows 7 and the method to extract from tape as I do not have Firewire (Ieee 1394) any more in my laptop and desktop.

You should open the terminal cover then connect the charger to the DC IN jack. See picture below:

Hello Mr
  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    I don't know if this will help, but when I leave the camera open with no tape in it for a day or so, "dew" goes away. Now I just store it open without a tape in it and have never had this problem again.

    Hope this helps.
