Let me make it perfectly clear about Mr. Potter.... he was given a chance to mail back my valuable non replaceable 20 year old tape......... I provided him a U.P.S. RETURN NUMBER to RETURN the irreplaceable item........ NO COST!!!!... safely ......... His decision to put it in the mail without postage ...... overseas ........is just like putting it in the garbage!...... This is not a man of integrity he lied to me about returning my tape to end this and he is lying to all of you........ HIS MOTIVE IS MONEY ............... petty but true............ he holds a copy on DVD ( he tells me) and is trying to exploit me for that!............ I will not let Potter get away with poor business practice at the expense of hostage holding...... BE WARE!!!!! of doing business with Potter your non-replicable items may be LOST or held HOSTAGE by a THIEF ...........thank all you who have e-mailed me about this, customers should not be bashed or treated poorly by business owners..... we need to stand up to the ternary of these individuals................... I WILL NOT BE IGNORED!!! I WILL NOT GO AWAY!!! I WILL NOT LET POTTER RIP OFF ANOTHER PERSON !!!!!!!!!! THIS WILL CONTINUE UNTIL MY TAPE IS RETURNED AND WE ALL GET AN APOLOGY.

Martin Potter & Ken Rodgers you are both being childish to say the least ! No one is suggesting the return post should be free - But simple putting the video tape in a post box without potstage is at best petulant. A very cheap second class surface post would not have bankrupt you Mr Potter ! Mr Rodgers move on - you have had a bad day with regard to this issue. As with regard to transfering video footage onto VHS or CD r at cost price plus second class post is well in the reach of many Video 2000 fan who may not be so well off as you Mr Potter, at least this way I provide the rare chance of those who at one time in the past owned a video 2000 machine can transfer video footage for less than £ 2 a tape, - not everyone wants to pay through the roof for the odd favorite movies from the 80's etc to be saved

I would also like to give my support to Mr Potter.

I have a collection of vintage Philips VCR's, and in recent months Mr Potter has given me regular advice and assistance via e-mail, on how to repair and service those recorders. He has given me lots of his time and advice for free, and has been invaluable.

I am pleased to recommend Mr Potter to all other Palsite visitors.

Martin Potter: WARRNING THIS GUY IS FAULTY check out his e-mails .... if you are following this he is A BIG FAT LIAR ......

Ken, Thanks for the post on PAL Site , Due to you posting my name and your comments I have had 3 requests to transfer tapes just today,Thankyou. Everyone who contacted me thinks you are going a bit too far and making a fool of yourself "My Lawer is bigger than yours " is the best Ken . They all agree you should have sent payment if you cherish your 20 year old tape so much then you would have had it sent back 1st class mail and it would be there by now.I don't know how you expect me to pay for postage of your tape from the UK to the USA would cost at least 6 UK Pounds if not more Anyway keep on posting your comments it's all working out fine for me . Your DVD looks quite good ,can't be your tape anyway as It's PAL encoded and German ,You use the inferior NTSC system over there and V2000 machines were only available in Erope 20 years ago so who's the German friend you have promised to transfer it for ? Maybe he will send payment for the DVD ? Regards,Martin

Joe :

I transfer all tapes to DVD not on VCD lower quality on standard CD's like yourself and the equipment is expensive ,I don't use a PC ,The tape is played and composite signal is fed to a filter then fed direct to a Philips DVDR 980 Stand alone recorder and recorded to DVD in real time at a high Quality setting.all this takes time and I sit through the whole tape to monitor it.And if people (Yes you Ken ) send me return postage payment it helps .anyway thanks for your comments.Regards,Martin Potter

Mr Martin Potter I believe it would best serve this chat room if you went elsewhere - you have & continue to upset others with regard to making large amounts of money in transfering video 2000 to other formats. In any case it is morally wrong to over charge supporters of video 2000 & betamax users to transfer video footage to other formats.

I provide the same service as you & it's my opnion that this kind of work should be done as a hobby & the charge for such a service should be at Cost Price ( ie: the cost of a blank tape or bank CD) Plus second post.

You should be ashamed of yourself at the was you have treated others users of this format!

I hereby call on all other users of the Video 2000 & Betmax format to boycott this man (Martin Potter) untill such time he has resolved outstanding issues & takes a less Capitalist approach to riping people off.

Video 2000 Users .

It was just last night I managed to get my head around this problem & I have now corrected this problem.

I bought a standard scart lead & placed one end into OnDigital box & feed the other end into A/V scart on the Video 2000 machine, I opened up this end & soldered a Video out / Audio out Phono leads - which I feed into my Betamax Video in /Audio in & then used ariel out connection & feed this into my VHS Machine which in connected to my TV .

This now means I can record UK normal transmissions or Digital Transmission via my Video 2000 or Betamax & VHS & it also makes it very easy to transfer programmes recorded on Video 2000 or Betamax to VHS format - all this is looped into my computer & now I can transfer (capture) onto normal CD-R any programming in Divx/Xvid format.

Wow, this has been an interesting project but worthwhile.

I hope this Solution helps others get around a simalar problem.

NOW ALL VIDEO 2000 FANS WE CAN BUY LOADS OF VIDEO 2000 MACHINES FROM EUROPE WITHOUT WORRIES !!

To the Webmaster & Users of Video 2000 System

Can anyone help me !!

I have a philips Video 2000 (2334 Model)!

I have bought this video from Germany because I have many old tapes which play perfect via the scart lead to the TV etc but if I try to use normal coxial lead to the TV & tune TV into video channel I can't get Sound only mixed German audio like on Long Wave Radio. I'v also tried to tune in my video into TV ariel & once again I can't recieve sound only this same garbled German audio while the picture is English - is this because it was made for pal transmission in Germany (Europe) ?

I don't have a proper remote control but I'm using a Philips D2 Mac Cable box Remote which allows me to play, stop, rew, ffd the video.

Can anyone tell me if this model has a Video input on this Machine & how can I record onto A/V in if this is the case ?Is it possilble to use the one scart at the back of the machine for Audio/Video OUT, to my TV while at the same time having a Audio/Video IN, from any other item i.e Ondigital Box or Satellite Reciever?

Does anyone have or know where I can get an instruction booklet for this model ?

If anyone has any idea on how to get around this audio problem please help me with your suggestions.

chris.lowdon@removethisntlworld.com

point me in the right direction with a VR2324 machine that Ihave.Philips VR2324 Can anyone offer advice on my VR2324. When I can get it running this machine produces quite good results but here is the main problem:

The machine is very reluctant to complete the 'play' command correctly. About 95% of the time the machine laces up and then switches off.

There is a secondary fault concerning the modulator which from time to time is either going off frequency or going off altogether. (not sure which).

I don't have the service manual for the machine so don't know where to start. Does anyone have service documantation for the VR2324 or similar? I have two 'working' Grundig 2x4 super machines (plus an unrepairable one) and have the full service documentation. I could offer a copy in return.

(In case its relevant, I live in Cambridge)

This is the email, unedited from KEN RODGERS:-

O.K. I have your attention! It took long enough. You may send back my tape U.P.S. NO CHARGE using our corporate UPS # 44W156 the same number e-mailed to you May 30th this is at NO COST TO YOU. You may send it back to our corporate office at the same address it came from. I already have another vender who will provide tape transfer service in a timely manner. Holding the tape hostage or threatening me will only harm your credibility, returning my tape now is your only option.When I receive the tape our business will be terminated. This is not a non-payment issue it is a performance issue and your performance and attention to a customers needs have not been met i.e. keeping in contact, you have proven to me that we can not do business. If you want to stop the aggression then send back my tape!

Ken states "is a performance issue "how can this be as he has not either sent any payment, nor intends to.So he will not see the performance of the DVD transfer.I feel he sent the tape with no intention of paying and is now wasting my time.I am returning his tape, but retaining the copy on DVD disc until full payment arrives and i see a withdrawl of all said comments

I am Vice Chairman of The Friends of Chertsey Museum. The Museum has a tape in a square box which I played in an exhibtion in the Museum in 1980. I hired a Philips VR 2000 machine to do this and to play the 10 minute sequence from a programme broadcast 'Nationwide'. The Friends need a Philips VR machine to buy or hire so that we can transpose the contents onto VCR, or burn a CD. We want to see again what is now an historical document of the saving of an ancient building. Can anybody help us in this quest? I shall be giving a talk in April 2005 about this recorded Tudor building in the museum and would want to use the tape as the finale. This is an important historic tape which has not been viewed for 24 years so we would be grateful for any help. This is the second time of asking on this chat page, but unfortunately my hardrive went down and I lost my correspondance with someone who could help me when I had confirmed that the tape had not been thrown away in a recent reshuffle at the Museum.VS

there is something going on with the VR2350. every time i plug in, the machine goes with a sound like morse-code beeping and whistling all along. what is there to do about it?

Kocht ik me onlangs twee exemplaren van de VR2350, ik zet 1 ervan in de stroom, en dat gaat wel goed, een volgende dag test ik die andere, en die doet het ook wel aardig. Maar als ik die eerste weer aansluit geeft die ineens een continue piepgeluid, als ononderbroken morse. Toen die tweede maar weer aansluiten, is die ineens net zo erg. Terwijl allebeide apparaten eerder deze week nog nagenoeg vlekkeloos functioneren. Wat kan ik hieraan doen om het te verhelpen?

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?
