Hi all. I still have the Pye v2000 vcr (I'm sure it's a 20vr23 with add on remote control sensor) and loads of tapes for offer. I've just given the tape path, heads and video head drum a proper clean (yes I did do it correctly before the video head police get on my case). All working fine and as it should.

It will all need to be collected from Rogiet in Monmouthshire as it's all too heavy to post.

Any questions just ask.

I have a quantity of previously recorded V2000 tapes which I want to go to a good home. They are a mixture of 2 x 120, 2 x 180 and 2 x 240, Grundig, Philips and BASF. They currently hold various films and programmes recorded during the 1980s. I have no working machine so cannot check what is what. Any sensible offer considered.

I also have a Grundig v2000 2x4 machine which is available for spares or repair, and a similar v2000 2x4 Super. Offers for either of these also considered.

Hi everyone,

New to Video restoration, but have acquired a massive collection of N1500/1700, Beta and V2000 tapes and want to transfer many of the contents to digital myself.

Managed to get a Philips VR 2324 very cheap and after a quick internal clean, loads, laces and plays/fwd/rwd cassettes without any issues. However, I am finding there is no video signal on either SCART or UHF modulator out.

Can anyone advise on what to check/common faults?

The video head seems to be somewhat difficult to access but from what I can see, doesn't look in bad shape.

Any ideas?

Hi all.

I have a Pye 20vr23 vcr and quite a number of cassettes I will be selling. The vcr was serviced a few years ago and some new components fitted. I tried it the other day and it still works but one tape I used shed some oxide onto the heads and transport. I can't be bothered to take the 4 big screws out from underneath and fart around finding all of my cleaning equipment. If anyone is interested in the whole lot send me a message with an offer and we'll go from there. Collection only as it's all too heavy to post.

I think the cheapest and easiest way is to purchase a HDD+DVD Panasonic recorder on Ebay, since PC video cards doing this job are not reliable. Regards.

Hello - my Dad has a VR2022 and a large number of tapes which he would like to convert to dvd or ideally to computer files for safekeeping (old family videos, etc) - the number of tapes he has means it would unfortunately be very costly to send the tapes to a company to do it. Therefore I am wondering if anyone knows of any companies which sell the kit required to convert the tapes.

I have a PYE 20VR20 for spares or repair. The machine powers up and seems to operate but I have not hooked it up to a tv. It has been kept in a garage and there is some dust ingress and there is some corrosion to the heads. Comes with a operating instructions booklet, a used Philips VCC360 (2x3hr) tape and power lead. Contact me for further information and or pictures on [email protected]

I was, and I suppose I still am a great fan of the V2000 format which in my opinion was the best of the 3 domestic VCR formats. My research at the time lead me to conclude that the Grundig V2000 2x4 Super was the machine of choice. Years passed and eventually my machine stopped working. I tried to repair it and in the process acquired 3 further machines in the hope of getting a working macine out of the 4. Anyway I'm moving house and need to get rid of the machines and tapes. I would be quite happy to give them away. You would have to collect from Wakefield. There are about 25 V2000 tapes, (and 7 S-VHS tapes) if anyone is interested.

I can be contacted at

I have four V2000 machines, all Philips, VR2020, VR2022 (x2) & a VR2023. The VR2023 used to work with the remote but I haven't tried any within 10 years. I also have sealed blank tapes. Is there any interest in these otherwise they're going to the recycling centre.

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 [email protected]
