Hi, i am considering purchasing a VR2020 but it has a problem, once tapes are loaded it stops and the tape cannot be removed without taking the machine apart, does anyone know what this problem is and how it can be repaired as i'd like to purchase the player ?, Thanks, Andy.

Has anyone actually attempted to build a a/v box for the Vr2020 family vcrs?

I've just started but have gotten stuck on finding a connector for the 20pin male socket

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).

Don, I made a very stupid typo above. when I suggested you try a SCART or phono connection to your TV, I should have said VIDEO, not RF!Regards, Bill

I have just pulled my old N1501 out of storage after 20 years. It powers-up but obviously all the belts have changed into a gooey mess. 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
