Hi! First, I'm in New York and I have to deal with a lot of PAL / NTSC conversions. I only recently discovered Video 2000. It happened as a result of someone sending me some tapes - and I didn't know what they were. I had never seen them before. I took them around to several professional duplication houses in NYC - and NOT ONE person had ever seen them before. No one had a clue. So I got a friend in Germany to find me a machine (Video 2000 2x8 Best Nr. 2080) and I just received it. However he didn't send any cables. Now I'm on a search for the cables. Does anyone know where I can get them? I specifically need the output cables which would go from the player to a German TV. I'd be looking for extra sets as well - since I'm sure I will ave to do a bit of splicing.
Did you know that even sony made VCC cassettes? I found some. Weird hey, they had their own betamax system, but they also made video 2000 tapes.
Just to say I have just had two of Jimmy's other B&O machines, and not only are they beautiful to look at, they work like a dream too, well worth the Money and the trip to bonny Scotland in last weeks snow. So if you need a fully working one, get in quick, it is worth it.Cheers and thanks again Jimmy.Chris

If like me you have come to this site looking for someone to transfer your Video 2000 tapes to a more current format I can recommend the services of Martin Potter who has a number of postings on this page.
When moving house I found a number of old tapes and Martin has successfully transferred them to DVD so I can once again see the old rubbish that I recorded back in the 80's. His service was both effective and reasonable so if you have a similar requirement then give him a call.

I'm in serious trouble with my V2000 machine. I was casually watching an old tape when suddenly I heard low crackling sounds from the machine (Siemens 304, identical to Grundig 2x4 Super) and the picture started to go bad. Knowing the tape was slightly damaged but had gotten a lot better from being viewed a few times I just pressed fast forward to get over the bad section. No chance. Only snow and sound. Now it's like that with all tapes. Any chance for rescue or is the head drum shot? If yes I'll have to look into fixing my old Philips.Please help me! I have about 60 V2000 tapes and would love to watch them again!

Which brand of tapes is in best shape today? I sometimes see stocks of video 2000 tapes where I live, it's mostly philips 480. No idea of their condition. I don't use them but if anyone truly needs tapes let me know.
also I'd like to repeat my post way up:
WANTED: original releases of monty python on video 2000.
Could anyone provide me with a used V2000 tape by around 10th Feb 2005? Pay post and costs of course. I need to test a Grundig 2x4 (Grundig 1600) which I have just bought, before letting it loose on other people's tapes for DVD transfer.

Payment on your terms for a decent working model with some hours left in it. I am in North Wiltshire and will happily travel or rely on postman pat.Many ThanksChris
Hi! I'm new here, but I've been a collector of old video recorders for quite a while now. In fact, I have a few surplus V2000 machines that I'd like to dispose of (for free). It's been a while since I've tested them, but I have a VR2020 that should work, plus two others that probably don't work. I'm in north Bristol near the M4/M5 junction if anyone would like to get in touch and pick up one or all of these V2000 machines.
Hay does anyone want to chat! if your female between 17-20 give me a call. ali
I was wondering if anyone here has ever seen Monty Python on video 2000.
Why? Well I am a fan and I noticed that due to it being around in the early eighties it came out on literally all possible media (CED betamax laserdisc vcd cdi 8mm film super8 film and super8 tape). Except that I never found any official vcc 2000 for monty python, life of brian, holy grail, how to irritate people, etc. So if anyone owns, or has seen this, please do mail me. Even if you don't want to part with it I'd still like to know.

just turning back to the mysterious "VCR5000" dual use (SP/LP) VCR.These machines did exist - here in Germany, some "Landesbildstellen"had these VCRS. They were extremely expensive, a former offical told me,that they had a hefty price tag " around 10 000 DM ". But money was no matter instate dept. in the Germany of the 70s ( they bought thousands of Telefunken Bildplattenspieler for schools, museums and hospitals ), so they bought one in some Landesbildstellen. Here in my hometown, this VCR broke down in the early 90s,and because nobody could repair it, they throw it away to the trash. (!!!!)Our Landesbildstelle still has dozens and dozens of VCR I or II movies, even originals,like "Birds in spring" or " Peasants are baking bread " ( real thrillers ;-),but they have no VCRs to play them. So they were really interested that I have functionalVCR N1500 and N1702.
The VCR5000 was offered only to universities, schools, archives etc.because it was so expensive. So thats the reason, that it isnt included in the consumer catalogs I have.
As I looked at the original VCR tapes. I can remember, that the first videostoresin the mid 70s here in Germany, had tons of VCR, especially VCR-LP tapes.On fleamarkets etc, I see many betamax originals from the late 70s, evenbins upon bins of Super-8, but I only found 2 VCR-LP originals (Elvis) inten years ! Why are they soo extremely rare, much rarer than the VCRs ?

HALLO ANYONE INEED OF A COVERSATOIN
I'm interested to buy a video2000 philips vr2334. in a good situation, I want to rewrite videotapes 2000 to disk DVD.How much cost ?
Hi Martin & Christian,
I understand that Grundig did release a dual standard VCR machine, model number VCR5000, that could record in SP or LP mode.
You could select the SP or LP mode when recording, but during playback the VCR automatically switched to the correct speed. (Just like dual speed VHS machines today).
These may have only been sold in Europe and I've never seen one for sale, so I guess today they are a super rare item. Due to the different type of heads used in SP and LP machines, I expect this model had a 4 head drum with both types of head fitted.
Hope this helps
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.
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
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.
