Sharp Viewcam Z AV socket problem

The AV socket is loose -it obviously needs resoldering to the board inside the camcorder. I am confident enough with a soldering iron but how do you take the camcorder apart.

To transfer video you need to use firewire, not usb. If you use firewire to connect, set the camera to the 'play' icon and then open up a capture program (ie, movie maker) you should be able to just record/capture from there. Good luck!

SOURCE: Camcorder Error

I had the same problem with my Viewcam Z. I couln't do anything with it anymore. Eventually got so annoyed that i actually called sharp to figure this thing out. From what technical support told me when you see E007 that means that there is some internal malfunction and the only way to repair the camera is to take it to a SHARP technition. so the question is would you pay alot of money to get this low end camera fixed?? i wouldn't..

If you're pretty sure the camera is just dead and have already resigned yourself to buying a new one you could just pry the door off and get your wedding tape out. There are lots of places that can transfer it to VHS or DVD for a small fee. On another note, I have a camera just like it, have lost the AV cable and can't seem to find a replacement online. Care to sell me yours? If so send me an email at [email protected] Thanks!

SOURCE: Replacement charger for Sharp Viewcam VL-Z3

As long as you can obtain a charger that is rated the same as the one for your camera it will not be a problem unless the original charger is a microprocessor controlled charger that has the ability to control and change the charging current as the battery charges.
A camera shop can check this out for you.
If it just a simple AC or DC charger, then you can simply use the connector from your original charger and join it either by soldering or with a screw terminal block(which you wrap in Insulating tape once fitted).
The main thing you need to be CERTAIN of is as to whether the original charger is an AC or a DC type.
This will be clearly indicated on the label on the charger.

How do I connect my sharp camcorder model VL-E650U to my Samsung tv series 6 630 lcd tv to view the 8mm videos on my TV screen?


You will have to use AV cables and an adapter. The adapter looks like a scart cable connector, it is that shape , and it has 3 inputs
one red one white and one yellow. It should fit in a spare scart socket on the tv and the cables should attach to the camcorder.
Just program the video to a particular channel, you may have to consult your owners documentation to discover how this is done. Go to the channel, insert the tape and press play.

Monitor will come on but then will click off and on


Sounds like a bad connection on the inside of the power cord socket on the back of the monitor. If you feel confident enough to take the back off just remove the power cord, remove the back and then wiggle the pins inside the socket 1 at a time and look in the back of the socket at the same time to see if the wires are loose on the pins, or if the wires from the pins are loose on the circuit board. May just need resoldering. If you can find out what it is it could save you money getting it repaired, unless you can do it yourself.

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.

Where do i plug in a cable to connect the cam to a tv or computer? i only see an ear socket and an ext mic socket on the cam.


On my Panasonic camcorder, the RCA plug-ins are in a separate compartment covered with liftable flap. Try searching for this flap. My flap is next to the battery compartment.

Can my Viewcam be used overseas?


Yes! The Viewcam ® comes supplied with a universal A/C Adaptor, which will accommodate from 110-240 volts and 50 or 60 hertz. You may need to purchase a plug adaptor for the different type of sockets.
