Oh, and I forgot to say that I can't get it to tune in a TV station number (I can't see the picture on screen, but guess that after the SEARCH routine I should be pressing STORE and 01, etc) When I do that though, it reverts to 00 and won't do anything.

I took my old V2000 Bang & Olufson Beocord 8802-V out of the loft and let it sit in the living room for a few hours (to avoid condensation in case it had chilled while it was in the loft).When I plugged it in, the clock and all the lights came on as normal but whenever I ask the cassette to move in any way (play, record, rewind or forward) I just get a nasty metallic-sounding chattering noise.I am also unable to tune the TV to the VCR.Any suggestions, or has this quietly died on me while it was in storage?

Hi, I have a VR2220 and a VR2120 in good conditions. I think both should work fine, but I can't assure that as I don't have cartridges V2000. If anyone is interested to them, I may be contacted at the reported E-mail ; I'm shure we will reach an agreement. In any case my tel is 0039 011 698411. My best regards to all the readers.

Can anyone help me with an n1700. I bought one new around 1977 and used it for a few years. It has been in the box ever since together with around 8 cassettes recorded from the TV at the time.With great optimism, I switched it on today and loaded a tape. It seems to fire up OK but just goes through the motions of lacing up and down and then switching off. I suspect that it might be the belts that have stretched - in the same way that mine seems to have done over the same period!

Is it possible to still get replacement belts?Failing that, is there anyone who still repairs these things (I live in Chester, UK)?Failing that, is there a reasonable copying service for this format. (I Know that one of the tapes has footage of one of my children dancing on the TV, which I would like to recover in order to embarass him)?

Could anyone help me, i have a fully working grundig 2X4 super machine, only problem is the power supply generates a LOT of heat. It gets hotter than any 1980's VHS or beta machine that i own. Could anyone tell me if this is normal, or is something about to blow.(There is also pleanty of air space above it so air-flow is not a problem)

any help would be appreciated

-Thomas

Hi there

Just found this chat site & it looks great!

I am in Western Australia, & I used to have the Philips N1502 VCR. I still have some of the tapes with material on them, which I hoped to be able to transfer into another format, but never had the opportunity in the end.

Can anyone tell me where in Australia I may be able to get my hands one of the VCR's capable of playing these tapes?

Also, out of curiousity, what was the quality comparable with (vhs, svhs, etc..), as I recall the picture looked great?

William

Just checked some old Video 2000 equipment I inherited.

PYE 22VR20 with 21VR20. This still works and is in very good condition, 1 tape with it.

Is there any demand/use for this equipment these days ?

_@_v - v-2000s were available from around 1979-85/6 so to get early 70s bbc broadcasts you'd need somebody with either a Sony u-matic (1971) or phillips vcr (1973). post-1978 broadcasts would've been recordable on betamax, vhs, or v-2000 vcrs (the three big-seller formats of that age)

I've just managed to pick up a 2nd generation V2000 Beocord 61 (Philips V2334 clone). Its suberb for playback of recordings from my VR2020 using the SCART to my TV. However, because the unit is from Germany, the RF side of things is devoid of sound due to the different varient of PAL used over there. Does anyone know of any "tweaks" inside that can modify the varient of PAL used? If not I've still got a great machine for playing existing recordings and making new ones via the AV connector. Thanks to anyone who can help!
