Wanted: Sharp VC-2300 service manual
Not often I ask for data, wondering if anyone has a service manual for a VC2300 tucked away in their data stores they might scan for me. Typically, I have loads of Sharp data (much already loaded in the library) but nothing for this.
By gum, I only just vaguely remember those, but I don't remember ever seeing one in real life!
As I recall, Sharp products of the period seemed to be very well engineered and put together, though I only got the chance to lay hands on two of their VCR models, one, a fairly humble front loading machine, no remote control and no fancy features. The other, a very nice, feature rich, remote control model that was streets ahead of its rivals. Damned if I can remember model numbers, but from polar opposites, they both seemed equally well put together.
If it ain't fixed, don't break it!............
We saw a couple of these over the years. Sharp machines were always well built. If I had a pound now for every idler I'd fitted!
So many, infact, I used to base the money a yellow pages ad cost on "idlers per week" 😆
