Hi to all!I found a Grunding 2x4 Super at the University junkyard so I took it with me.Some parts were missing so I've decided to disassemble it. If somebody of you needs the mechanics (without spindle motors) or the boards (expect front panel board) or the front panel (there is one "door" missing), I'll send you at the only cost of shipping.I live in north-eastern Italy (near Trieste).Sorry for my poor English.Regards,Diego

Hi, does anyone know where I can source new pinch rollers for the Philips VR2840 ? At one time I remember an Amstrad VHS part was a compatible match for the earlier models of these 2nd generation machine but can't remember which one.

Thanks, Keith.

I have a Grundig v2000 1600 2X4 Machine. Up until Recently It's been working fine. Now it starts to play then stops (i don't think the tape is getting took up). I have taken apart and found that the motor underneath is loose and wobbling from side to side Is this normal? I just presume it should have a little give in it. It's the motor thats connected to the arm at the top which switches from reel to reel.

Hi. Owing to my father now moving into a nursing home i have acquired 6 V2000 recorders which are a mixture of Phillips and Grundig. They are a mixture of 2x4 and 2x8 machines. I honestly do not know if they are in working condition but knowing my father there is a good chance that they do although i have a feeling recording heads may be an issue. Outwardly they all look in excellent condition. I would like to sell these and am open to offers. I will provide any information you require and photographs if you would like them.I am sure they would at the very least be of use to someone who needs spare parts. I look forward to hearing from anyone interested

Hi, can anyone help me? I've got a quantity of 2000 tapes which I've had for 25yrs +. I used to have a camera and a player but they're long since deceased. I'd really like to find someone who would go through my tapes and put the content onto a modern format. Some of them will be full but most will only have a small amount of film on them. After succesfully swopping the format you can have the old tapes. If someone will make contact with me I'll get the tapes out and tell you exactly how many there are. Incidentally some of the tapes that I don't want copying have got British Superbikes on from the early 80s and also quite a lot of boxing.

Free to collector! Grundig 2x4Super machine (looks like www.oldtechnology.net/images/grundig2x4super.jpg ). Half a dozen tapes and the add-on box which allowed it to be controlled via a Grundig TV remote (but not remote control itself).

It's been up in the loft for decades but had to come down when we had new insulation. It powered up OK, but I suspect the tape transport is dodgy - I couldn't get a video connection to the TV to check.

It's free to whoever wants to collect it from me in Bristol.

Hi An interesting site.I have a Phillips VR2022 recorder/player with a few tapes. When I last tried using it about 10 yearsago I am sure the video head has failed although all else worked then {picture broken up both play and record. } Can you get replacement heads? or is anybody interested in purchasing this. Must say it is very heavy so I expect postage will be high.

Does anyone have a V2000 Video Tape Recorder that actually works or more specifically will Play Back VCC480 & 360 Tapes so I can copy old content to DVD so I can watch them.All stuff was recoded on a Grundig Video 2x4 Super during the late 80's, which packed up a long ago and when no one could repair it I threw it away. I now have 80+ Tapes and no means of playing them.

Hello. Probably the only time on here.... Have been keeping my Grundig 2x4 Super and 2 dozen tapes for many years. Always intended to copy good stuff such as Beat Club from German TV, and some other music I recorded in late 80s.Unfortunately, now I have finally decided to do this, the set lasted about 30 minutes, when it suddenly started belching acrid grey smoke....! RIP. So - Does anyone want the tapes? Mostly bought new by myself and only used for personal TV recording. Mainly BASF 480s. Although I did aquire some 2nd hand Grundigs. I m sure the BASFs would still record fine. Don t want anything for them, although if anyone who wants them could do me a favour.....? One of the tapes featured Heartbeat - A charity music concert from 86. I was watching that when it went up in smoke. I d love to have a copy of that. Anyway, tapes are free, but must be collected from Stourbridge, which is near Dudley - West Midlands. Anyone interested, please mail me.Regards,Mick farmer

Hello!I just bought a Radiola 20VR23 V2000 VCR, the French equivalent to the Philips VR2023. But when I plug it in, it goes fast forward for some seconds. During that, no button responds, no fonction is available. Then it goes in standby mode and a little dot lights up in the bottom-right corner of the band counter. No fonction is still available. I cannot even set the clock. Help me please! Thank you in advance.

I have just been given a 'Grundig System Video 2000 (2x4)

There is one tape in it.

I notice when I pull back the top plastic cover on the tape I do not see any tape going over the brass rollers...is this normal.

When I place the tape in the machine I hear a flapping wing noise and then a sudden motor whirl down and then silence.

When I try to play the tape I hear the same noises.Taking the top cover off the actual tape playing area has another steel cover over it so I can not see what is happening.

Any ideas?

Cheers Jim

Du Pont produced a longer V2000 tape called a VCC540. This produced a tape length of 9 hours (4h 30 mins per side). I bought a couple in Holland, not sure if they were available anywhere else? My Grundig 2x4 Super used to think it was a 4 hour. Much later a similar problem with VHS 300 tapes and the ATTS system (although at least with my VS660 Nicam you can adjust and enter the tape length via the remote) Also Grundig produced (towards the end) a really good looking VCC with a much larger tape window(during the maple leaf shield period - I guess when Philips had a share in the company).

Hi everybody,I wanted to reactivate my Grundig 2X4, which was stored for 2 years after working absolutely fine without any problems.Now it does not run the cassettes (run, fastforward and reverse) any more. What can happen in the retirement (in my dry and clean cellar) with the system?Does anybody know a technician/TV service in Nuremberg (or close-by) who still repairs V2000? (should be, since Grundig produced in Nuremberg-Langwasser).

Can anybody help me with repalcement suggestions and/or instructions? If you want to email me, just remove all the numbers from my email (didn't need any more spam!)Cheers, Roderick

I have a fully operational Phillips VR2324 machine (V2000) for sale. It has recently been fully overhauled, and has a new pinch roller and memory battery. I have just finished copying all of my old V2000 tapes on to DVD using this machine. It is a European spec. model with a PAL B/G tuner. It will play all V2000 tapes, but will only record in the UK via the SCART input. This works fine. I can provide photos of the machine by email. Offers please.

I also have a quantity of used V2000 tapes, a mixture of VCC360 and VCC480. These have various old programmes and films taped during the period 1980 - 1987.

This is not a technical question in any way, but I am looking for one or two programs from the eighties - and because these are the video recorders from that time, just maybe someone here can help me. I am looking for the Noel Edmnds Saturday Roadshow from 1988 (sorry, I have no specific date)? Did anyone perhaps record this on their vcc (or VHS or betamax or Umatic etc., I have placed this message on other forums as well)? There was an item on there called "clown court" that I am trying to find. Thanks.

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.
