The red light flashes when its charging

Had this problem myself and found that the voltage of the battery was too low for the camera to charge (2.8 volt,s)
I manually charged the battery up past 3 volt,s then put it back in the camera and plugged it in--the light did stop flashing and did finaly turn green.
Or just get an external charger online for cheep.

Ihave a view cam made by sharp and the model #vl-ah160 and it does not hold its charge even wih new batteries.i had drop it and i was wondering if this can cause it fo not holding a charge

if it still works ..I dont think this should have cause any problems ....I guess the power issues came from poor quality of the accumulators or better from a not that great formating of them when they were brand new....another cause may be the age ...after all even in mobile phones , those rechargeable ones have a limited life time ...and his is the way they behave .....I mean they begin to last less and less.. a solution might be new ones...or even try to never let them inside the camera even when the power is off...cause all cameras empty them batteries when they aren;t even on ...

Sharp viewcam VL-A10

According to the manual the red X means the heads may be dirty or worn out. I was looking at the manual for the VL-A110U camcorder as it seems like the closest thing but the red X is pretty universal. Your older tapes are probably fine. Sometimes a small piece of tape gets stuck in the tape head and is not easily dislodged. I would tyr using the cleaning tape 10 seconds at a time maybe 3 times, waiting a couple of minutes between cleaning as the heads get hot. If that doesn't do it you will probably need to take it to a reputable repair shop to see if they can do something.
Manual for the VL-A110U is available here.,1083,47,00.html

Battery charge

I'd start there. Usually the flashing red indicates that the charging function is not working. A defective battery can cause this.

Camcorder Error

for a quick fix I usually override it by slightly opening the tape when its being loaded, i think its a sensor issue. my cams been rendered useless because of this stupid error, I cant even sell it now because it only works 10% of the time and that's usually when im just checking out the cam, only when I need it the most does it screw up on me
