Question about Sharp Viewcam VL-A10U Camcorder

Open Question

Dew/Clog problem I cannot use my Sharp 8 Viewcam VL-E39 Camcorder because the dew/clog light keeps coming on. I don't know what I need to do to fix this, or if I need to send it out to be repaired, where to send it. Also, I brought a brand new battery, and charged it fully. Even after charging, the battery only works for 8 minutes. Help!

SOURCE: dew

It is possible that the dew sensor is faulty or more likely that the connection from teh sensor to the rest of the camera is faulty. This unit will require repair. If you can soler, you may be able to resolve this. I'll look up your model to see how bad the access is to the sensor.

SOURCE: Sharp Viewcam VL-E66U

I let it sit overnight and when I opened the door I nudged the part that holds the tape up. I got the tape out but I think it is still frozen. I will try a different tape and hope it still works. I'll post results.
Thanks

SOURCE: Flashing "DEW" Indicator shutting down the viewcam

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.

What doe DEW mean? The "DEW" sign keeps coming on and then shutting off..

DEW sign indicates high humidity level inside the camcorder. What you experiencing has nothing to do with humidity, It is a faulty connector on a junction board. Sharp has fix for it.
