This message is for jk mchugh, whose name I found on your chatline. Am sending this message via the chat page as well as to jkmchugh email. I have a Phillips VCC 360 Video 2000 tape which I desperately need to be transferred to VHS so that I can transfer it to DVD. The film is priceless to our family as it contains 50 year old images, previously transferred from 8mm film. After scouring Australia, I found only one machine in Canberra, in the archival Screen Sound, but it did not work. (Government department!) I hope that jkmchugh can help me - I am willing to pay all necessary mailing and transferring costs so that our family can see this film . Please advise soonest.

Hi page and pagers.

Is this site still active in 2004?

I have two Grundig machines, neither of which is working now (something to do with the mechanics I think.

A year or so ago I spoke to a guy on the Kent/Surrey border who said he could repair them, but I think that may be too far away for me.

Does anybody know if there is somebody in the NorthWest of England who is still repairing these machines? I would be happy to end up with one working machine and leave the other with some lucky guy for spares/repairs.

Can anybody help?

Thanks to Steve Hanley's great instructions I was able to fix all my old tapes.While doing this I noticed that grundig cassettes are of noticeably worse mechanical quality than Agfa and ITT ones. Inside the Grundig Cassettes the tape is just _glued_ to the reels! Didn't take apart any other brands, but thought I'd share that with the community.

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?

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 !

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).

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.

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.

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.

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....

I'ts AMAZING !!! 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 am trying to find out information about an old Hitachi Color Video Camera, Model VK-C870E. Saticon System. I would like to know when the camera was made, how good quality it was, how much was it new, and whether it would have been used for recording TV pictures as it appear to have a cathodray tube.
