V2000 service manuals on Ebay for VR2020, VR2022, and Grundig 2x4 Super.
There were considerably more V2000 models than I found listed here, at least on the German /Austrian market.I once had Grundig model identical to the 2080 but without XP. It also had the weird front loading mechanism where you have to press the eject button first. Identical to it were some Siemens. Ingelen made a Philips copy.Then I once had a very late Grundig model. It had a standard front loading mechanism and was considerably smaller and more modern than any other V2000 machine I've ever seen. Didn't look too different from early-90ies VHS machines. Unfortunately it was beyond repair (like all V2000 machines that have any problems, unless you know the right people, most repair people won't even touch V2000). Recently I bought obne of the mentioned Grundig videos at EBAY. Two days ago I got it shipped... smashed into pieces!. NEVER trust the Post or other packet services! I was close to either crying or throwing the machine flat onto the next available hard surface to cool myself off. I've got a handfiul of tapes, some with way cool movies on them. Unfortunately my Siemens machine took the life of three tapes in its last day, since it just wouldn'T stop at the end of the tape rewinding. Just tore off the tape, and so far I haven't figured out how to open a V2000 cassette and most of all put it back together. Less screws and considerably more springs than a VHS cassette.
I have a Grundig 2x4 video 2000 machine,but it has a fault.It will eject and accept the tape,but it will not play.It rewinds o.k ,but will only fast forward very slowly.When i press the play button it winds on the tape into position,but on reaching the pinch roller it immediately unwinds it again and the red light above the tape button starts flashing.Does anyone know what might be causing this fault.

I have aquired a VR2020. OK cond. When plugging in it made a click or two then a very very loud high pitched howl. spectacular! the motors seem to go but this recorder has spent a while upside down in damp for a while. there is a lot of oxide around in it.then on later pluggings in a waft of smoke drifted up from the front rightmost PCB card. oh dear! this was from a small elevated resistor, photos available on request.I have never been into V2000, I'm a Umatic man. this was a chance find so there it is. I have no tapes nor ambition to hold on to it. I'm thinking about if you, or someone who really would appresiate it, could pick it up from Sutton Coldfield west mids UK, it's theirs. I'm not very much after money. tricky to post.I'm undecided if I should take it to a VCR repairest, limited use to me.
Hi,I have a Grundig V2000 2 x 8 player that was, until last night, in pretty good working order. Unfortunately, I purchased a film from E-bay tried to play it and the picture was terrible. At first I thought it was the tape so I tried one from my collection that I knew was good but this was the same. I checked the heads and found the usual black deposits from a dirty cassette. I cleaned the heads and the picture improved but now it seems to "wobble" back and forth across the screen very slightly. The sound also "wobbles" again very slightly. I'm assuming (praying) that it is just a roller or something that has gotten dirty from the cassette as the last time I used the player it was fine. Has anyone outhere got any ideas?
i have a Grundig V2000 super any ideas on where i might get it repaired. tried restarting it recently but no movement.want to get it moving to transfer treasured videos to a new format.

Firstly just say to thanks to those that set this site up, at least I am not alone in V2000 land.
I am trying to get a Phillips VR2334 up and running. The machine appears dead when a tape is in although the panel lights come on when the relevant button is pressed, play, rewind etc. With no tape in the loading tray goes up and down OK and the motor runs when rewind etc is pressed.
I've checked all fuses and connectors and all seem OK. The next step is to replace the backup battery but I cannot seem to locate it. Can anyone tell me where it is or offer other things to try, hopefully it's something simple !
Is anybody can help me about converting some V2000 recordings to VHS S-VHS 8 or Hi8mm or even in digital like DV or DVD ?

Hi u all! Two years ago I was given a Grundig's 2x4/2x8 V2000 (model name 2080) recorder from a friend's family who had purchased it a mere 12 years ago (what a deal for the store!). It needed some circuitry service and, after a 100€ bill, it was perfectly working & I was perfectly happy (along with my beta/svhs machines). Then, this old tape stuck in and the cassete lid got broken... so the machine is no longer working. As our technician put it, circuitry is [relatively] available but not mechanical parts. So ANYONE OUT THERE with INFO or SPARE UNITS of this superb model, plz contact me.
Greetings from Madrid (Spain).
HI IAM LOOKING FOR A SERVICE MANUAL FOR THE PROJECTOR PROSCREEN 4650 ENDURANCE PHILIPS
Date 10th Jan 2004 Hi - I have recently sold my VC2000 recorder and have two for sale on E-bay on the UK site Grundig 2x4 Super that partly function. I have about 50+ VC2000 tapes that were used for home recordings avialable - open to offers for tapes. These are mostly 2x4h and 2x3hour tapes - I don't expect much for them as postage will be quite a lot due to their weight. Please e-mail me if you are interested.
Hi there.A Philips VIDEO2000 is available for parts on ebay. Just 3 Euros plus shipping !Anyone interested ?Look at this address before it's too late:http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=3318&item=3070226054Claudio
Anyone looking for brand new (sealed and unused anyway even though probably over 15 years old???) V2000 tapes?
Try stanleysonline.co.uk who have Philips 3hr and 3M (Scotch) 4hr cassettes.
I have heard Scotch tapes were abrasive and caused extra wear on heads so suggest use sparingly, and when I used to play in Grundig 2X4 Super tended to jam up in Index Search.
Also, came across company who have maybe around 50 cassettes but will only sell as one package. Anyone interested - let me know and I'll check out number and price etc.
Also, new drive belt kits and pinch rollers for Grundig videos are available at 3 or 4 dealers advertising in Television magazine. Maybe for Philips too. Prices vary a little.
Does anyone know where to get V2000 tapes copied onto DVD???
I have two V2000 machines for sale - both in working order.First is Philips VR2023. case is in good condition, new head fitted with extimated less than 100 hours of use. Old head also available still working but well used.
Second is Grundig 1600 ( with german language controls ) Working order, but case is a little scratched on the sides. Playback on the Grundig is not as clear as the Philips, but the Philips is a higher spec machine.
Machines have not been used for a long time but I tested them beginning of January when I found this site and they seem OK.
Service manuals available for both machines ( including all circuit diagrams etc.)I also have 50+ used tapes, various lengths - mostly 360 and 480.
All reasonable offers considered.Location is Warwickshire, Leamington Spa.
does anyone or anybody own, or can lend me a schematic diagram of a vr2340 and a vr2840. 'cause i have a major electrical problem in the piece of electronic attached on to the cooling-rib right next to the AC mains
anybody that knows some more about the electric feed system of a vr2340 or vr2840. Every time i put my 2840 into the electric source, only the capstan-axle and headdrum starts rotating like crazy, and my 2340 shows only the clock and shuts down the transporting mechanism within a few seconds whenever i press one of the transportkeys it is no funn at all...
Een vast veel voorkomend probleem (althans bij mij dan). Vanaf de trafo loopt de stroom naar een printplaat gemonteerd op een koelrib (koellichaam). Van daaruit gaat de stroom door het hele apparaat. Nu heb ik onlangs een 2340 (precies dezelfde layout als mijn 2840) aangeschaft, en die voorzien van een mooiere kast. En nu heb ik alweer het zelfde probleem: het lijkt alsof het elektries blijft hangen in het koellichaam. Wat kan ik hieraan doen? Steeds maar weer een v2000 kopen op de markt verveelt ook snel, en zoveel tijd, geld en moeite hoeft een dolfijne hobbie niet te kosten....

Just how many BOXED Grundig 2x4 1600 V2000 VCRS there are, Or could this be just the same machine again on sale because it has been tampered with and the case removed by someone with a screwdriver who knows nothing about the machines,It's a shame as this machine would have been a must for a collector such as myself but now theres a big ? in my mind as to what has been done to it ,I should have bought it when it was first on ebay ,heres the link to this machine again, http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3068936252&category=39999 notice the seller has changed his name but the machine remains the same.Thanks Micheal Austin (VCR Collector)

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

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.
