I am trying to find out information about an old Hitachi Color Video Camera, Model VK-C870E. Saticon System.

Hello PLEASE HELP am desperately seeking all over to find the old classic movie of superwoman not superman superWOMAN. might be on Beta Cord.it is rather old so i wouldnt be suprised if it was late 1970's or something like that i think it may have been around the christopher reeves time period.it is not a cartoon it is a normal movie and at the time was probably on VHS or Beta cord even something like that.i know DC crimes sindacate seems to have some old things like this although i have seen more action figures than actual movies from them. have you ever heard of or seen this old old movie.Or do you even know what the name of the actress in it is as i can not even search via her name for i do not know it.thanking you kind regards melanie -xxx-PLEASE PLEASE PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE HELP cheers :))
I have a VR2324 that is reluctant to accept deck commands. It responds to the keys but usually then rejects it and if you can get it to lace up it invariably laces out again. After persistant 'play' attempts it will eventually accept and then plays fine. Can anyone help or offer service data.By the way I have full service data for the Grundig 2X4 Super so would happily swap.You can also Email me at nokia.com
V2000 Pre recorded film (on a VCC-180) for auction:
When my Grundig died a few years ago it took some time to find an engineer willing to fix it but all it needed was a new capacitor and life was restored. When a TV went dead recently it turned out to be a break inside the power lead near the plug. All it took was to chop off the end couple of inches from the cable. Hopefully you might find a repairer who will at least check out these possible easily fixed problems.
if people are offering equipment for sale which requires collection, could i suggest that they indicate their approximate location please?

Hi - first time ever on a chat page - so apologies if my web etiquette is poor.
I have a Phillips N1500 VCR unused since 1976. It has been hermetically sealed for the last decade and in a cupboard for the fifteen years or so before that. Last weekend I rediscovered a couple of cassettes and would like to see if I can get it to play that episode of Kojak supposedly on one of the cassettes.
First problem I have is no power lead - it's a double hexagon shape like none I can remember with the live and neutral perpendicular to one another (no earth). Does anyone know where it might be possible to get a lead?
Also am I likely to be wasting my time on such old equipment (there's a sticker inside dated March 1974!)?
Any hints, encouragements, discouragements all appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Here, the site of the videorecorder Philips VCR N1500, but language germany.
Due to the need to reduce the size of my V2000 collection, the following machines are (reluctantly!) available: Grundig 2x4 Super in excellent condition, with operating instructions, Service Manual (original) and photocopy, 3 remote-control receivers and 2 handsets, plus second (working) machine with damaged heads, plus other spares; Grundig 2x4 Plus in good working order and good appearance, with photocopy of Service Manual, and second machine in poor condition for spares; two Philips VR2020 machines, both in excellent condition, with two sets of original operating instructions. Some tapes available if required. Offers for the lot, or might split.

Hi all.Unfortunately my beatifull Philips VR 2340 got totally dead during playing of a tape.The tape still is in the machine.Can ayone help me out with a copy of the service manual for the VR 2340.Thanks a lot.I want to keep this legend alive.
I have some archive material of one of my bands that I was in, on 2000 tapes has anyone got a working player going cheap?, I can collect almost anywhere in the UK or Eire
It's very important with nice photos! But the document is version Germany.http://www.klug-happel.de/media/Magnetband.pdf
Here, I find hard difficult from search of the motor (www.virgilio.it):
All formats video (reel and cassette) also Video 2000, VCR, VCR-LP and SV in language francais: http://milestone.picsound.be/index.html
HelloDoes anyone know of a company or individual who can transfer video 2000 tapes to VHS in the Skelmersdale/Southport areaThank you
Can somebody help me with the following problem. My VR2024 gives b/w picture in playback and e-e mode. After some time the color comes. It has something to do with the chroma board (I think). Witch parts should be replaced?
Hi Christian (nordkorea),
I want to know that which between Grundig model VCR-5000AV or SVR-5005? Is it exist, yes or no?Is see the site list VCR/VCR-LP/SV: http://www.eclipse.co.uk/mikey/vcrlist.html
Dual standard VCR / VCR-LP model. Switchable on record, but automatically switched between VCR and VCR-LP on playback. Had video input / output facility.It's VCR/VCR-LP for recording/playback only without SV.
more VCR messages than V2000.... but in a way the VCR System was a predecessor of the V2000.A VCR message board ( and site ) would be great.I have talked with an old GRUNDIG worker last week, the VCR 5000 was planned as a multinorm VCR (VCR, VCR-LP, SVR), but was never built, because of the success of the V2000 System. Only schematics exist. This would have been great, because the three systems are really wasting space in my living room.
I am not complaining about use of this page. My point is that readers with the N1500 range may have more luck if they contact the user group on Yahoo but they do not seem to take this action.
The reason I write is to try to give helpful info or advice when I can.
This is a valid group! Why shouldn't people post here?
I have a LVC120 tape i want to convert to VHS, but my player broke down before i could do it. Is there someone who could do it for me ?

I sometimes think people don't read messages.
On 16 Aug someone offered free N1500 and I have mentioned a Yahoo user group for these models a few times.

Going very cheap to a good home(else I could put it on ebay ...)
Would need to be collectedI'm in the Hants/Berks area
A colleague is looking for video 2000 cassette tapes urgentlyplease ring mark 02077297039 london area Bethnal Greenor e mail me keith
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 [email protected] (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
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).
Hi I am looking for a schematic wiring diagram for the philips video 2022 can anyone help me or tell me where i could find one thanks
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 Thomas Bennett,
Re Philips 1500.
See my message above yours about yahoo user group for 1500 and 1700 models.
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?
Grundig 2x4 Plus for sale. Working order and good appearance apart from some scuffs on the ends. Second machine (rough) for spares, and photocopy of manual. £20. Located Shropshire. Must be collected.
I'm scanning the Grundig 2x4 super (first version mono) so I'll put it online.
Hello.Wanted a Philips 2000 so The Friends of Chertsey Museum can show occasionaly a 2000 tape of a bit of Chertsey's history © 1975 which is in the collection. Must work properly, but the outside condition not important. Any reasonable price considered. Will collect within 150 miles from Surrey.
Hi I am trying to find a working N 1500 to buy, it must have a decent upper drum at least enough left on it to allow me to copy many tapes. Alternately on to beg / borrow / hire. I live on the Isle of Wight.thanks
Re Philips 1700 VCR. Try address group.yahoo.com and search vcr for user group. good luck.

Please get in touch if you can help...
My wife is selling a B&O Beocord 8802-V video recorder on ebay.It's a lovely machine, but its HUGE and we havn't got the room.
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.

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.
Any format of film or video footage, any subject matter. If you are willing to recollect your movie memories on TV we would very much like to hear from you.
