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, I just bought a Philips VR2087. It looks like the VR2023 but it has VR 2087 printed on the front. Is it a "special" version of the VR2023?

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.
