Hi Everyone

Ive been lucky enough to find a HUGE box of old Video 2000 tapes!!....I have a bit of a dilemma as im a keen collector of old ads and programming IDs from the 1970s and 80s and I dont have a player for this format (The annoying thing is that a lot of these tapes appear to be from the first generation of cassettes circa 1978!!)

I was wondering if there are any enthusiasts in the South West of England (Ideally within a sensible distance of Chard/Taunton/Yeovil) with a V2000 machine who would be interested in going through these tapes with me and transferring any interesting material to VHS

If I have no luck I suppose I will have to put them on Ebay!!.....I hate to do this as im sure these tapes are full of old fascinating ads and IDs!!

Any comments or help would be much appreciated

Mike

To make more sense they should have called it HVS not VHS as Home Video System sounds better than video home system.

You're right, Keith, that we really shouldn't be bothering with such trivialities of some inferior system. However, for the record, VHS was initially christened by JVC as "Vertical Helical Scanning" but then changed to Video Home System before launch because it was obviously much more friendly.

My prize for this extraordinary knowledge? A beauiful working 2nd generation Philips V2000 please!

The meaning of VHS - well I'd heard that "Video Home System" was the false one actually. And Video Helican Scan was the true one !! Who knows !! Why are we taking about it anyway this page is for the better format Philips Video2000.

Hi Trevor, VHS stands for nothing more sophisticated than Video Home System. Some thought it stood for Video Helical Scan because of the position of the video head in relation to the tape, but this isn't true.

Have Grundig 2x4 Super [bought new in 80s] and now have problems!! (1)some number buttonsstick in, I believe this was a known fault, and (2) sound seems high pitched as if thetape is running too fast. If anyone has a solution to these faults or has a service manualor knows of a V2000 repairer within reasonable travelling distance of Portsmouth pleasecontact me at the above E-mail address. I have only just discovered this site and was amazedto find so many loyal supporters!! I was beginning to think that I was the last person inBritain to still have a V2000 machine, I have been uplifted!!!

Pinch Rollers for the VR2324, VR2334, VR2220(Portable) are still availible. I think they are the same as used in later VR6xxx VHS machines. I've ordered several recently when they arrive the invoice gives a VR6xxx model but they work perfectly. I'll try and find out what the model is and post the info.

Keith.

To robert [above]

It might just be that the Pinch Roller is worn and causing the tape to snag on the guides. The machines you have are two of the best V2000 machines made - in my opinion [and the VR2324 is the same as the VR2334 - they just put a different front panel on it! The slow/ still/ reverse/ x3/ frame by frame and time elapsed/ remaining buttons are all there on the PCB, just no buttons on the panel - and the remote sensor is just not fitted.

You might be lucky and find video 2000 pinch rollers still available somewhere!

Hi V2000 fans. I have two Philips machines a VR2324 and a VR2334 and a lot of tapes which I want to transfer to VHS (or even better to SVHS). Unfortunately when I play the tapes they are being destroid due to a faulty capstand transport. The tapes (VCC480 type) are wringled and thus the other side cannot be played any more. Does any one know of this problen and has a solution? Or is there some one who wants to sell a working machine (In The Netherlands)?
