Grundig 2000 2 x 4

I have a 1981 Grundig 2x4 where either the tape loading mechanism or the switching has failed anyone sucessfully repaired one ? Think its beyond me - certainly without relevant bits of the service manual.

Anyone in the Lancashire area interested in the whole or parts for spares ?If not it seems destined for the dump also c20 tapes (can't remember whats on them !)

Sorry to all those who e-mailed me - but I wasn't really looking to sell my Philips VR2840 's at the moment - my message was really a reply to the message directly above it (from Steve Rowley). Just to say I had 2 of the models he was looking for. I paid quite a lot for the VR2840 's one cost me around £250 the other just under £ 200 so if I did sell them they're not going to be sold cheap !! But I still have a Philips VR2022 for spares - I've now found a new home for the Grundig 2x4 Super.

Can someone out there help me? We hit the pal prompt on our dvd player and now it just scrolls across the screen, can't even get the menu to come up. Have tried to cut power and that didn't do it so I am giving this my best shot.!!

Anyone interested in a Grundig 2x4 Super and a Philips/Pye VR2022 for spares or repair. Both machines are in the North East (Northumberland/Cumbria borders). Otherwise they're going on the skip as I need some space.

I've got 2 Philips VR2840 's - but I won't sell them for less than what I paid for them. Which was well over £100.

Video 2000 machines must be disposed of, five in all - two Philips and three Grundigs.

For the Philips I have a 2020 and a 2022 (I think, may need to check this). Both worked the last time they were tested but the 2022 (mine from new) has an intermittent problem where it suddenly shuts down and powers off - I have heard that this is probably a dirty relay or pcb contact, or maybe a power supply problem. The Grundig's are two - 2x4 Super's and a System 2000. The System 2000 has a problem with the cover not making the cover switch, other than this I haven't looked at it. Of the two 2x4's, one works well, the other works but has a problem with a slightly grainy picture - this has been proved by substitution to be the power supply and is probably a capacitor as this is a common fault. Just haven't had the time to do anything with them.

I have a User manual for the Philips 2022 and a User manual for the Grundig 2x4. I also have a Grundig 2x4 wireless remote control unit and I think I have a 'cable remote' for the Philips.

These units MUST be collected as they are too heavy, and too delicate, to ship by courier. Collect from my home in Hereford (lower Midlands).

£75 for the entire lot. If they were to be stripped for 'spares'then you can easily make a good profit on these.

I have a website "Search for long lost Countdown episodes from the 1970's" which is about trying to find pre-1978 episodes of the Australian pop show Countdown because most of them were deleted. My site contains info on what I know or suspect still exists in ABC archives and there is a lot of info on the 1970's Philips VCR and some info on other video formats of the 70's. Anyhow here is my website address http://web.1earth.net/~funkydud/index.html and if anyone has any rare piece of Countdown footage taped when originally aired I'd be very interested.

I had to use this board to advertise my website because it would cost me an extra $25 per month to put my website on a search engine, and seeing that messages from this board do appear on the search engine I thought this would be a good place to get my site on the search engine. I'm not a rich person so I had to find a cheaper way to advertise my site. I hope you guys don't mind. I just want my site to be known so maybe someone can come forward with some early recordings of Countdown.

Hi, I'm new to this chat page and I wonder if anyone can help me. I have a Phillips N1700, circa 1976-7 which I have had from new. It has not worked in some years, switching itself off within seconds of depressing the play button. I need to find someone who can fix it at a reasonable price.

I live in Bristol, but travel about the UK a fair bit. Can anyone help?

Regards,

Kim

I owned a VR2021 for a few short months in 1994. Unfortunately after cleaning the heads, I inserted a cassette before the fluid was dry (damned impatience) and the tape got stuck to the drum. Result - broken head - dead machine.

I would like to obtain a V2000 machine of any description from anybody with one to flog in the London area. A later one would be preferred (with picture search/still, etc.)

Also, I would like to obtain any spare cassettes which anybody wants to get rid off - blank or recorded. If the tapes contain old recordings of television - especially junctions and continuity (such as start-ups, testcards, symbols, engineering information, clocks, announcements), please keep them.

EVEN IF YOU'RE NOT PREPARED TO PART WITH OLD TAPES, I WOULD BE VERY INTERESTED TO OBTAIN VHS COPIES OF ANY OF THIS TYPE OF MATERIAL. SEE WWW.THETVROOM.COM / WWW.TV-ARK.CO.UK FOR THE TYPE OF STUFF I MEAN.

To all you V2000 Lovers (who wish to part with their machines)

I wish to purchase a preferably PHILIPS branded V2020 /2021/2023/2024/2324/2334 and some more tapes to replace a V2020 that was given to me and has since died of old age, leaving me with tapes and nothing to play them on.

I have a Philips VR2020 for use as spares, free to a good home. It was damaged en route to me and some PCBs are cracked. You will have to collect it (SW London area). Also, a tape transport assembly from a Grundig 2x4.
