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.

I have recently rescued my Grundig VR2000(2X4) from the attic, with the intention of transferring my old tapes to DVD. Unfortunately internal examination of the machine revealed a broken belt for the cassette mechanism....anyone know of a source of belt kits for these machines? Dimensions 112 x 1 x 6 mm.

Long shot, thanks for any tips/advice/etc/

VR2023 CTR board wanted:

I require a CTR (processor) board U20 for a VR2023, or a whole scrap machine. Can anyone help? I'm based in Devon but also visit Bedfordshire sometimes so may be able to collect.

The battery leaked all over mine, and though I was able to bring it back to life for several years, it's now expired.

Thanks for any help.

I have a Philips VR2022 and about 60 tapes which I want to transfer to DVD. My problem is that the VCR hasn't been used for many years and needs a good service. Is there anyone reasonably near to Nottingham who could help me out?

Happy New Year,I have a Philips V2000 video circa 1987 that is in good condition and has been stored in my mother's attic for several years. 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. If anyone is interested, just let me know at sandbach.dr@pg.com. Thanks,Roy

I really wish I'd seen the ad above when it was posted - I'm in East London and a stash like that is what I've been waiting years for! (And I haven't even taken the plunge vis-a-vis a machine yet!) I haven't visited PALsite for a number of months and just took a quick look on Christmas Eve - and ended up totally kicking myself!

We have about 40 v2000 tapes a few pre-recorded rest with old tv programmes recorded on them. If anyone is interested in collecting them from E London then they can have them for free.
