I was wondering if anyone ever found pre-recorded V2000 tapes for Monty Python? (Except for Life of Brian which I have already.) For a weird collection of mine.
We can duplicate PAL V2000 tapes on DVD or VHS (also in NTSC) at € 15 per recording hour.
Hi,Does anyone know of a reliable person / shop in the South West where I can get my Grundig 2 x 8 V2000 repaired? A chap on this forum has been trying to help me fix it myself (thanks Steve - I've sent you yet another mail!!) but I now think I will need to take it to a shop.Originally it had dirty heads/tape path caused by using a cassette purchased from E Bay but now I have an "F" error displaying and the cassette will not lace up. When trying to load a cassette but the player accepts it, then goes into FF or RW (?) but only one wheel seems to be moving which caused the tape to snap (and made a horrible noise!).Any help would be greatly appreciated as I desperately want to keep this great machine going.I can be contacted via e-mail - [email protected]

i'm looking to purchase a working video 2000 machine. email me with details.
I was clearing out the loft and came across a couple of sealed BASF V2000 VCC480 (8) hour tapes!I bought them about 8-10 years ago I guess - check them out...
I have a Philips vr2021 for sale if anyones interested
While clearing out someones house I have discovered an amazing collection of spare parts, manuals videos tapes and accessories. There are 3 grundig V2000 machines that are in working order, 6 that power up but need attention, 3 Philips VR2020, (1 in working order) the others power up lace the tape, unload then eject. There is also an external video / audio adapter for the Philips VR2020 /21 series that clips onto the rear of the VCR, still boxed and in as new condition. There are lots of V2000 tapes with various recordings etc.In addition there are lots of VCR service manuals for VHS Grundig,Philips & Ferguson machines. There is a lot more that needs sorting through which will take a while.I used to repair VCRs years ago and remember the V2000 well especially the Grundig 2x4 Super. Unfortunately, so far I have not found any video heads for V2000 machines. The non working ones I will try to repair and get up to a reasonable standard before putting them up for sale. There is also a dual beam Oscilloscope available with probes etc. If anyone has any specific requirements email me with your wants and I will let you know if I can oblige. I am located in North Manchester.
Did you know that SONY made V2000 tapes as well?? Weird isn't it?

Hi Does Anyone Talk Around here or not
Ooops !!! 2333 is not the same as 2340, but as 2334 !!!
I'm an old (not so old, I'm 41) V2000 fan ! I still own (all in SECAM, I'm french) : 2 VR 2334 (one is working but the heads...), 1 VR 2120 + 2220, 1 VR 2023 (working only in B&W, I think a little component has gone while watching a film during a storm ! Not clever, I know), a "like new" Radiola (=Philips in France) VR 2333 (same as 2340, but more recent, and with a different tape counter using the same panel as the clock) and I recently acquired a B&O 8802V perfectly working after cleaning.But I don't have the B&O remote control (The receptor is present inside the 8802). I tried to plug the remote control receptor of the VR2023 (the plug is present on the B&O), but it doesn't work, even when unplugging the B&O receptor...Any idea on how to adapt the Philips remote control on the 8802, or do you know someone who has one B&O remote for sale ?If you have pictures of the B&O remote control, you can send it by e-mail (I don't know what it looks like)...Maybe the good alternative must be to buy a universal remote...
Thanks for all guys, long live V2000, and sorry for my "not academic" english ! :)

For Sale- just putting on Ebay 3/4/05 at 22.00hrs. Philips VR2120 and VR2220 set.
Help,I have a Grundig V2000 2 x 8 player that was in excellent condition until I tried to play a film (from E-bay). Now plays with no colour and picture appears to "roll" very slightly from side to side. I assume the heads are dirty as I recently suffered exactly the same problem on a Sanyo Beta but I managed to find an old dry head cleaning tape which resolved the fault immediately.So, can anyone describe in detail how to clean the heads and tape path etc so that I can save my machine!Regards,Martyn Scott
V2000 to DVD transfers:
In case you are here because you want to be able to view some old V2000 tapes, I would like to mention that I offer this service at very competitive prices starting at just £15 (see http://www.colin99.co.uk/beta.html). I use two V2000 machines because some tapes play best with Dynamic Track Following models and some play best without, this means I can get the very best from your tapes. I also use a digital timebase corrector to improve the picture stability.
As well as V2000, I offer Betamax, VHS, Video8, Hi8, S-VHS and professional Betacam SP transfers to DVD. You can see testimonials to my work on the web site too.

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
Hi, I have 3 B/O model 8802V machines for sale all with romote controls. I am looking for Philips / Pye / ITT / Marantz 2023 models dead or alive as long as they are complete. Also have 5 philips VR2022 machines (working) for sale. I am prepared to exchange machines.
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!
i want to know about hot mail chatroom AND install it

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. Alternatively, if you have a tape you want transferred to DVD, I'll do that free of charge for the donation of a tape. Thanks.

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.
Hello!I really hope, that someone can help me! I am looking for a video 2000.. Write too me if you have one..
i love this syte is a pleasure hangging out with u guys thank u very muchbye 4 nowcollins
