I own sharp digital camcorder model VL-23, already sent an e-mail, but I think it was lost and therefore will repeat it again. I have a dew message, went to a site that recommended resoldering or removing the small battery. I removed the small battery and had to reset my camera date but the dew message is now gone, for how long I do not know and they said this fix was probably temporary. The soldering seems touchy any other ideas?? Also, I had returned the camera a few months after purchase because near the end of a tape ie about 1/8 of an inch or so, the camera sound stopped recording. They sent it back and said they could find nothing wrong with it. It's doing the same thing and I’ve tried different tapes. I didn't bother returning it as it seemed to be a waste of time and money. Any ideas?? Thanks.
