hi, first of all you won't download the clips, but stream them to be able to be recorded... for that you need a fire wire cable to connect the cam to the PC... (assuming that the PC have an FW plug !) then you'll need a video editor software, like movie maker or premi?re the first is a minimalist and free, the second is a professional one and costs a lot... then after editing you'll have the option to burn a DVD or stream to youtube or whatever you wan to do with the final result... cheers mich

DEW means it's got damp inside the camera body and it must dry out. A warm setting on a hair-dryer (NOT TO HOT) should do or just leave the cassette housing ejected in a warm room overnight is best this should solve the problem. .

moisture in the cassette holder. Take out the cassette, leave the holder door open for a couple of hours in a dry, warm location, and it should work again.

Have you checked if it has other connectors? Typically, it might have a 3mm round plug, that is the same as your 3mm headphone stereo plug socket. The one on my camera has this but is has 4 coaxial connections along the shaft, instead of the 3 that you would see on a headphone plug. You will then need a suitable cable which would have RCA plugs on the other end. Alternatively, check the manual. Remember, if you don't have a manual for it, just go onto the Sharp website, and download one. They usually have them available for free.

Possible that the power supply is damaged, there is a fuse link but you must be lucky to have it blown before any damage is done. So you need to open the set to confirm, attempt to open the panel and check on the power supply only if you are equipped.'

The dew sensor is located in the cameras tape mechanism. This will require disassembling the camera to remove the tape mechanism and repair. This can usually be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.
