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 a User Manual for Philips 2023 -- anyone in need of a complete photocopy welcome to get in touch.V2000 recordings transferred to horrible, inferior V.H.S. (More exciting to try http://www. Marktplaats.nl and get a working machine from Holland!)
