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).

I own a vr2840, and so it is known that the machine has XL mode. When I try for that, the picture is not quite as good as claimed on this site, in the overview about the VR2840. Is there something wrong with my machine??

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....
