Hello Everyone

Please can i appeal to all that reads these posts, if you have any old tapes with recordings on from the MID 70's (Probably on old phillips N1500 tape) Please check labels or if you have the equipment to play them, check for any recordings of Wew Faces, TX date 8th Febuary 1975, One of the acts on this show was Kenny Windsor (Comedian) and The winner was Dennis D'ell (Former lead singer of the honeycombs)Please get in touch should you by chance come accross any recordings you may have. I will convert any tapes found to DVD format free of charge and return the tape and DVD to you. If you do not have the particualr episode of new faces that im after, BUT you do have a recording i'd love to know about these aswell. Thanks for Reading. Lee 07790779792 or l_elcocks@hotmail.co.uk

Hi,I have a Phillips VR2022 for sale, the machine is in good condition and does everything it is meant to do except it shuts down after about 6mins of play or record, not sure what is wrong with it. I live in Salisbury but make the trip to London most days so am happy to meet or arrange delivery if on my route. I am looking for around £70.00 for the machine and maybe a few pounds toward delivery.I also have 13 tapes, these all play and have a lot of interesting shows on, the all work, are in reasonable condition and are stored in my spare bedroom. I am looking for around £30.00 for the tapes and as above can deliver if on my route to work.Anyone interested?Give me a call on ggc75@hotmail.com

Hi!I'm from Spain, Valencia/Costa Blanca region. I'm looking for a working (or possible to repair) unit of a V2000 unit. We had one at home when I was a child but, unfortunately, it got broken. I have many tapes which I'd like to convert to DVD (I hope they are still playable) from when I was a child. I see some units from time to time available on eBay. Unfortunately, vendors are all based on Germany and I can't seem to find any available from Spain.I'd like to contact with someone which would be willing to sell me one unit at a reasonable price (since shipping costs will be probably high). Also, as my area is highly populated with visitors from Germany or the UK during summer, maybe we could to the "operation" in person. I wouldn't mind taking my car to go to places like Benidorm, Alicante, Jávea, Calpe or Teulada to carry the unit.So please, if you are interested, contact me at the email provided.I'd also like to recommend you my page, chirimoyas.es, devoted to the cherimoya!<a href="http://www.chirimoyas.es" title="Chirimoya">Chirimoya</a>

After a big clear-out today I was about to consign a Philips VR 2020 and 9 recordable BASF VCC450 2x4hr tapes plus head cleaner (and a couple of old photocopies of the Instruction Manual) to the recycling depot when I found this web-site. It is about 20 years since the recorder was last used - I think the only problem was mechanical when loading tapes.

I live in Sutherland - the Far North of Scotland so it is possible that carriage costs could outweigh its worth. But if anyone wants it and the tapes for spares for the cost of carriage let me know soon.

Would just be delighted if it was of some use to someone.
