They said it lost because there wasn't enough adult videos, but that isn't true... hehehe. Nudge nudge.

If your VCR only needs new pinch roller, any engineer should be able to fit new one as same as VHS machines. Early Philips VHS models (maybe even later ones) probably used same rollers. I bought VHS parts (rollers and drive belts) for my Grundig V2000 videos and fitted them myself - a while ago but if memory right, roller just pulled off spindle.

I recently bought a Philips VR2424 Video 2000 vcr. Unfortunately it damages tapes during playback. Picture looks good, although wind back and the damage done is clear to see. I'm told it may be due to a Pinch Roller problem.

Anyone recommend a UK based Engineer, still capable of handling the format?

Hi, Love the site. especially the V2000 section. I just wonder if anyone can help. I have a Pye (Phillips?) 23VR33 machine, but it does not seem to be listed on the site? There is a 34 so is this it by another name? I am also in the process of transferring V2000 tapes to dvd via lovely Sony MC3 without need for PC. Thing is there is on some tapes a central band of interference across the picture. is there any way of removing the band? Should I try another machine if I can get one? Thanks

Dear All

I have a Philips VR 2022, remote, original manual and approx 10 tapes. It has been in the attic for the past 20 years. I'm not sure if it works but I can't bear to take it to the rubbish tip.

Is anyone interested in giving it a home or using it for spares? All I need is enough money to cover the postage.

Best regards - Clive

Hello all!I bought a Grundig Video 2000 machine in 1982. It came with a add on remote control unit, and it cost me a total of £685. When you consider that I only earnt £65 a week in those days, that was quite a lot of cash! It was a fine machine when it worked, but it did have a few problems with drop-out, etc. Even the tapes were very expensive, with a 8 hour (480)tape setting me back around £24 a time. Madness!It's good to see that the old format is still being talked about. I still have loads of tapes, and 1 machine, (not the original though) this one cost me £25 about 15 years ago. Not sure if it still works. Must try it out one day.I will return to this site soon, but for now, cheerio.

Hi never heard about this format before untill today.

Have aquired 2 tapes of ebay of FIRST BLOOD AND RAMBO FIRST BLOOD PART 2.

I have no use for them as I only have a vhs machine.

Was wondering what they were worth and if anybody wanted to give me a fair price for them?

They are apperently precertifaction as the cases do not have any ratings but the tapes do have 15 marked on them.

Works for me/

Hi all,

My Philips VR2350 Matchine V2000 VCR (in the UK, a specially-imported model) has developed a fault - it hasn't been used for a while. On powering up, the clock display is blank and the beeper is switched on permanently. Meanwhile, all of the segments of the function display are lit up. There were a few dry joints, which have been resoldered to no avail. I've also replaced the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply - but this made no difference. Does anyone have any idea as to what's wrong? I've tried looking for a circuit diagram or service manual on-line, but to no avail. If a kind reader (probably resident in Europe) could e-mail be one, that would be terrific and I would be eternally grateful! Kind regards, Martin

Hi

This is the latest in a line of requests for someone who can service/repair a V2000 machine (and an N1700 as it goes). I know there have been other requests and I can't find any replies but I am ever positive and hoping that the rest of the exchanges were private and all these people now have fully functioning machines, hmmmmm.

Otherwise, there is a solution but not an cheap one that I am on the cusp of using. There is a guy in Holland who services, repairs and sells V2000/N1700 machines. He sticks them on Ebay on a regular basis. The ones he sells were built for the european market and I believe there were some compatibility issues when playing into a UK TV. He did explain it to me but my tiny non-tech brain could not take it in. However, he is prepared to service and repair my machines but I, obviously, must shoulder the cost of shipping. It depends entirely on how much a working machine is worth to you.

I am here exploring the alternatives. If nothing comes from this site I will go ahead and let you all know how it works out.

I have sent an e mail to the Dutch guy asking if I can give out his details on this site. It may be that he is already known to this community. His Ebay handle is Charly_Rackslider and you could track this down by searching on Ebay for these machines.

Hopefully more later,

Phil.

Re Grundig 2x4 drive belts. Try Grandata in Wembley, tel 020 89002329, part ref BK 94, or Visionaids tel 0195 2273130 (if phone number still same - or look for website to check) part Konig 7535.10 - Grundig fitted same belts in many early VHS machines so were still plenty about but not listed under V2000 models.

It appears to work perfectly well, but I only have one tape that says "faulty" on it, so I'm not 100% certain. It definitely is electronically sound.....I would like it to go to a good home and suspect that there is a market for these wonderful old machines.

I have just inserted an ad on ebay this evening, selling a batch of 5 Pye/Philips V2000 VCR's and with over 300 Pre-Recorded tapes!! The starting price is low with NO Reserve. All units have some kind of fault, but Service Manuals are included! The only downside is that the buyer has to collect due to the sheer weight of the whole batch. Searching for Philips Pye V2000 VCR should easily find this 10day listing. It may take a few hours yet for it to appear. Thanks for reading. Please see the ad for more details and pictures. A hobbyist could have a field day with this lot - wish I had the time

Included in the sale are in excess of 200 original manufactures V2000 films and documentries etc. Some are for Children, some are many popular UK TV series, some are well known films and some are hardcore aldult material. I purchased the complete collection of tapes from a video rental store for £500 back in the early 90's. Most of which were brand new and unopened. Those tapes that do not appeal and can be sold on or used to record over. Best offer over £ 200 + shipping secures.

Reason for reluctant sale - moving abroad - email or telephone 07833-512208

The Value of home recordings

Do you have tapes full of old TV shows you recorded in the seventies? Don't throw everything away without looking!

This may come as a surprise to some, but TV studios until recently did not keep tapes of everything. The tape was expensive and so it was recycled, or thrown away. Some well-known examples of series with episodes gone missing are "Dad's army" (one or two episodes missing) and "The avengers" (first series missing) and "Doctor Who" (over a hundred missing episodes).

If you are about to junk your early tapes, check http://www.missing-episodes.com first. Just to make sure.

Hi, I have a problem with a 22AV5530 AV adapter in that it doesn't record audio. It records and plays back video ok through the BNC sockets, and it will playback audio but it just wont record audio through the 5 pin DIN socket. The playback volume is very low however. Any clues? Thanks, Richard.

A radio/TV repair store will most likely replace the belts for just a few pounds.

Hi Chris.

Ref Grundig 2x4 Super.

Go to the V2000 user group on Yahoo, click on files (left of page) then Grundig.

There is a user manual listed page by page. Rather slow though.

To set clock, just key in time (eg 1430) then press clock on left side panel)

I have recently purchased a Grundig 2x4 super machine which plays tapes well and tracks all my old tapes ( recorded on a Philips 2023 years ago). However there is no instruction manual with the machine which would obviously be useful. Can anyone help me please and maybe email me with some help on the relevant clock setting procedure etc.

Hi Guys, Can anyone sort this one? I have a Philips VR2023 whic I have just bought off ebay. When it arrived it played a tape ok, but was mechanically noisy. I found that the transport/ tape carriage had been damaged in the post. I managed to remove the tape carrier and repair the damage. Mechanically the machine is now ok but when I try to play, wind or rewind a tape the machine cuts out after about five seconds, also the tape counter ramains on '0000'. This is very frustrating as this looks like a great example of a 2023. Any ideas gratefully received! Thanks.

Hi everybody, from Italy.I own a Philips 2334 not working, that I cannot fix, and some dozens of cassettes.All I want is to have a working VCR to play the cassettes and save them on the computer.After that, I'll donate the VCR (good for replacement parts if you too are unable to fix it !)and the cassettes to who rents to me the working VCR.

HI, Yes i've got the full philips manual for the 2020 [I think it covers the 2023 as well]. It's dog eared and as you may know it comes in loose leaf form, was vey helpful when i last used it. Sadly my 2020's got slung out by my folks when I left home about 20 years ago. I've just got the tapes and manual and a few panels left [the computer boards i think]. If you want the manual it's yours for free, just cover my postage cost. If you don't have it it'll get slug out sooner or later!Joe
