Hello Christian :

To my knowledge there has been no N1700 SP / LP model launched or released ,but I do have a data sheet which details how to convert any N1700 VCR to add this LP mode as well as the SP at the flick of a switch ,do bear in mind that any tapes recorded like this will only play back on a modified machine.I do have a few N1700's here with this modification but as yet not tested any due to lack of belts .There are also a few boxes of cassettes here recorded in this way whch gives upto 6 hours record / play time from an LVC 180 .If you would like a photo copy of this data sheet covering all details and components needed along with diagrams please email me your address . Regards, Martin.

Hello Martin,

thanks for your fast reply.To my surprise, I never had problems with the VCR Tapes,only with the first Phlips one (orange) and some Scotchs.BASF is very reliable, and you can get many unused and still shrinkwrapped VCR tapes,sometimes at ebay.de or sometimes on flea markets.

I have the old VCR cleaning tape - without fluid.

As an expert, you may know, if a multinorm ( VCR Standard I and LP ) was released.I saw one prospect when a dealer closed his shops, he said he ordered this model, butnever got one.

Its strange, that the old VCR System has a sort of renaissance in Germany,prices are soaring and many new collectors are interested, because they grew up with thismachines.

Christian, It's best not to use the N1700 cleaning cassette to often as it has an abrasive effect on the video heads which in time will wear them out .The reason the picture is getting bad is the oxide on the old tapes is clogging the heads and leaving deposits on the tape path,Scotch ,AGFA,and the older orange colour Philips cassettes are worst,BASF and the later LVC tapes are not so bad.You have to clean the video heads and ALL the tape path every time you play a tape using head cleaning fluid, but be careful near the fragile video heads as they can be damaged.Make sure you wait at least 5 mins before you try playing a tape so the fluid has time to evaporate.Martin

Hello,

I have real trouble with an used N1702. The sound is very good, but the picture quality is changing from fair to appalling - and vice versa. Because the quality is varying,I dont think that the videohead is overused. I tried the cleaning tape ( from an agfadept., still sealed ) half a dozen times, but it isnt working.So I have to clean the video components as described in the manual.Is this really helping ? Or is the danger too high to destroy the videohead ?I remember, that my GRUNDIG store owner had zillions of components, like video heads, cables, etc. All of the GRUNDIG and AGFA base centers have vanished in Germany,but where are the spare parts ? I cant believe that all of these new videoheadswere thrown away ? Some VCR dealers told me, that a company from Liechtensteinbought tons of spare parts, but I couldnt find out which one.

Thanks for your help !

Hello can someone please help me ? I’v got a Beocord 8800-v v2000 vcr, which has just a slight problem. As the tape leaves the head mechanism and comes by the pinch roller assem-bly it puts a crease across the tape about 6 - 9 inches apart . If I place a small amount of pres-sure on top of the pinch roller housing with a drive, this stop and no problems. Can anybody explain how I can adjust this , in layman's terms ? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Kind regards Steve, thanks.

Dispite the emails I read from Ken Rodgers trying to persude me not to send my tapes to Martin Potter I decided to use Mr Potters service,He collected and returned all my V2000 tapes which he copied to DVD for me,He has also looked at my grundig vcr to see if it can be repaired.I would recommend anyone to use his service and to ignor the emails from Ken Rodgers.
