I wonder if anyone can help. I have a Philips VR2023 VCR and it is not working what well as it is chewing up the tapes. I need to either get mine fixed, purchase one or hire one for a few months. My late father used this format extensively and my mom has given me a number of tapes of the family and I would really like to get a machine to convert these tapes over to dvd. Once this task is all done I am quite happy to part with the machine and about 400 tapes.

Can anyone either sell me a machine or advise where I can get mine fixed.

There is a Philips VCR N1500/1700 user group on Yahoo which might help.

Anyone need parts off a non-working Philips N1702 ? I know the video heads are damaged but there maybe other parts on it that might be useful to someone. Also I have a 2nd N1702 that is sort of working - it starts to load but then switches off and unlaces before it completes the threading process. Any ideas what might be wrong with it ? All the drive belts look ok and the drum does start to spin up. Thanks.

More about N1700:

Anyone have a scrap Philips N1700? I need a drum motor. It's one of two motors on a bracket on the underside of the deck, and it's probably easiest to ship the pair of motors on the bracket. Anyone able to help? I'm in the UK.

Thanks for any help, Colin

N1500 tapes?

Not quite V2000 related, I know, though incidentally I do V2000 to DVD transfers if anyone needs them, see my web site http://www.colin99.co.uk/videocopy.html

I've just bought N1500 and N1700 machines, which I've been servicing. Trouble is, I have only one tape, and that is damaged (it jams because some of the plastic interior is disintigrating). So, does anyone have one or two of these tapes which they don't need, preferably with some recordings on them? I long ago donated mine to a museum and now regret it! Also, if you have an N1500 tape to transfer to DVD, I will do this for you if the machine fully works.

At present, the N1500 mechanically runs and seems ready to try. The N1700 needs more attention, it's not behaving properly.

Thanks for any help,

Colin

Hello everybody. I have a request to make not for a machine (although I'd like one - I had one in 1994 but I managed to wreck one of the heads). My query is slightly different.

I run a website which looks for old 'offcuts' of telly - stuff between the programmes. So, that means things like weather forecasts, promotions of forthcoming programmes, new season trailers, continuity/engineering/transmitter announcements, temporary fault announcements, programme menus/lineups/slides, and so on. Also anything unusual that may happen (such as unannounced 'test' broadcasts that may have accidentally been recorded at night or after a mid-morning programme after which testcard was scheduled). I am particularly interested in various ITV regional logos and collecting the various animations including them that will have been transmitted over the years.

If anybody has ANY clips at all of anything more than 20 years old, from the BBC, any ITV region or Channel 4, I would be very grateful if you would consider copying this material to DVD for me. The original tapes and indeed the programmes themselves would not be required. I would be happy to pay a small charge for the trouble.

Regards,Mark Boulton, London

I have a Philips VR 2020 and a Philips VR 2023. The 2020 has just been fired up after 6 years in storage and has just snapped one tape and ruined another one by wrapping itself round the tape heads. The VR2023 powers up ok but when the play button or rewind/forward preview the machine just switches off. Can anybody help me by pointing me in the right direction of a good quality repairer in the Manchester area or maybe swap or exchange the machines for a reconditioned V200 system.M Barnett

Part required for a Grundig 2x4 Model 1600: Anyone have a scrap Grundig 1600? This was a later model machine without Dynamic Track Following. The reel idler on mine has just shed some teeth, see picture here:http://www.colin99.co.uk/beta/v2000idler.jpgThe part possibly exists in other Grundigs.

Any help most appreciated. I will be trying Grundig service agents, but hoped someone here might have a spare which I could get more quickly.

Cheers,

Colin
