Free to anyone who can collect. Philips N1500 VCR (first domestic VCR - museum?) and N1700 VCR with some cassettes. I don't think either work. 2 Hanimex 8mm cine projectors (one super8 - again both need attention). Bell and Howell video presenter (old and needs servicing). Various other old stuff which should be skipped but just in case someone somewhere can use it. First caller must agree to take the lot (what you do with it afterwards is up to you but it must be removed from my premises in Peterborough).Email me at rpe*@sitesource.co.uk (remove the astrisk* - I have had to do this to stop spam; my penis is large enough already, thanks).

I have a Grundig V2000 machine which I bought new in Germany in 1984. It has been well used but I haven't played anything on it since 1995. I have just got it down out of the atic after seeing this site. It doesn't seem to fit in with any of the models listed on the site. It has the symbol "EU=RO" and the model name "Video 2x4M" on the front. On the back it has Best. Nr. 850 (order No 850),serial number 72629.

It used to work before I put it up in the atic (In it's original packaging)After seeing the site I decided to try it out again. However, now it won't thread itself.

Is it worth my wile trying to get it to work? I still have about 30 cassettes, some of which have material on them I'd love to see again

Any input from people with more experience than me would be more than welcome

To mackmuck:

Re the ITT580 at the car boot sale, if I found one and it was demonstrated to be working I'd snap it up, even for $50 (which I assume if US£ would equate to about GB£30).

I have a collection of old VCRs - 1700, 1702, 1500, 2022, 2023. Does anyone know of a UK-based engineer who could take a look at 1 or 2 of them (ideally south).

I've scanned the service manual of the Video 2000 2x4 super machine made by Grundig.I left out the tuner parts as well as some of the spare-parts lists as well as notes and stuff. It's scanned with 300dpi and compressed to JPEG. A page is about a meg large.http://casandro.dyndns.org/service_manuals/

Ohh, BTW you can donate if you want to help scanning more manuals. :)

Hi everyone!

About half a year back, I was at a flea-market where I found a V2000-player/recorder (I think it was an ITT 580 ). I didn't know much about it though, so I didn't buy it. I went there again today and it was still there. The price was about $50 with some cassettes included, and the seller showed me that it works. Now, the question which I would like you enthusiasts to answer is: Should I buy it?

Hi all,

I picked up a Video200 machine yesterday complete with some tapes (and all for 50p) itís a Grundig V1600 2x4

The machine is in great cosmetic condition, but seems to have a few faults.

When a tape is playing the sound is muffled and quiet with changes in pitch, is this just a simple clean of the audio head or something else?

The picture is a little grainy but not too bad, rewind and fast-forward is good.

I canít seem to tune in any channels using the tuner, nothing is picked up on the uhf band, is this serious or a simple fix?

Also does anyone know the pinouts for the av din plug or better still a copy of the manual / service manual

I'm looking for home movies filmed on V2000 for a new LWT show. The footage really has to be taken in London because it a regional show I'm afraid. I've some the show blub below but if you have any V2000 stuff that you can't play anymore or would like to reminisce about drop me a line. Stuart 020 7633 2573.

LWT invites you to share your home movie memories with the rest of London. Working in conjunction with registered charity the London Film Archive, London Weekend Television are producing a new programme which will look back over the last century through Londoners own home movie footage.
