Hello, I have more than 200 hours of videotapes in V2000 format. These cassettes contain many memories the early childhood of my daughters. I would like to be able to view them but my Philips 2334 cannot function any more more than 3 minutes without stopping. Does somebody want to sell a video tape recorder V2000 Pal/secam well to me? Thank you.

A short and simple question, maybe not so simple to answer: Who is the inventor of the V2000 system. Is it Philips or can it also be Grundig. Does anyone have some information on this, that can be tracked. The reason for this is that I (dutch) had an argue on this item with a German. I don't mind if it is a German invention, but I have always thought that it was an invention/devellopment from the "Philips Natlab" at Eindhoven.

Lionel,

Have a look at Television magazine (try major newsagents like W H Smith) which has ads for manual suppliers and tv/vcr spares companies. Same parts may fit Philips VHS machines and still be available.

hi, I have owned a philips vr2023 for about 10 years now and I want to digitize my old tapes on CD-roms. I once built a audio/video composite connection for the DIN-AV outlet on the back so the signal wouldn't have to be converted into an UHF signal first.

I lost my self-soldered connectors, can anyone tell me what pins carry what signals?

As I remember they were audio and video in and out and ground.

ps. I dont mean the 20pin square connector, but the round AV 6-pin connector

thanks, Frank

Looking for a good home for:

Phillips VR2023 video recorder and 6/8 tapes inherited about 5 years ago and in occasional use since.

Picture quality fair but not wonderful probably heads need cleaning, maybe tapes over-worn.

Sound OK unless switch to standby and then back to operate within about 10 seconds.

Instruction folder and manual

Brochure for VR2022

(Will be dumped after Christmas if no takers)

I'm based in Wollaston, Northants.home e-mail: keitha.cheasman@tesco.net

Hi, can anyone help me find what is wrong with my Philips VR2424?

In fact it works very fine .... when it works !!I mean it is very hard to make it run in play or in fast mode. The only mode that starts easily and continues to work is the rewind (both ways are ok).I noticed that when making it play without any tape works and it helps in making it work for a while with tape inside, but after a few minutes, it will stop and disable any function. It then needs to be switched off and on again to clear.The front panel switches give the impulse but the motor stops after trying to turn for a very short time (same result with different tapes).It looks as if there was not enough power to drive the tape and the system stops automatically.Where can I check if the power supply ouput? I think it should be 5.1 volts but not sure.

Has anyone some technical manual for this model?I have a large quantity of these PAL V2000 and Betamax pre-recorded tapes and can may be help someone; if looking for something, just send me a list of what you are looking for - tapes are in english, french, dutch and german, including some Walt Disney, Warner, etc...)

Thank you a lot for your help.

Albert

Does anyone know the equivalent Philips machine (if there was one) to the Pye 23VR33. I have seen an image of it in a service manual and it looks like a VR2334 or VR2324. If you apply the normal conversion 'rules' it would suggest a VR2333 - but what is one of those?

IMPORTANT NOTICE.

Hi all Philips VCR format enthusiasts. I've just created a Philips VCR Yahoo Group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/philips_vcr/ . This group you's can discuss, send photos, share info, talk about early VCR recordings etc... even do deals and swaps if you wish on this group. I'm in the process of adding photos of some early VCR machines not just from Philips but also from Grundig, Loewe and hopefully sometime the USA Norelco if I ever get any pictures of those machines. I'll try and make the group as exciting as possible with adding pictures and even video files of what I've transferred from VCR cassette. I've got stacks of pictures of these old VCRs from various websites especially EBAY. Anyhow enjoy.

Cheers

Troy
