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.

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>

Hello.

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.

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

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.

Hi John, it will probably depend on where you are located. I would love a V2000 for my collection, but living in Sydney, Australia the shipping costs could be too high. Unless you live around here somewhere too!

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.

Please help...

I've been trying to repair my old Philips N1502 video recorder since I have some tapes I'd like to play.

Does anyone have one of these VCRs, in any condition, that I could perhaps buy and repair or just use as spare parts for my own machine?

Thanks in advance

Marie

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'm auctioning a fully working Philips N1501 on Ebay in excellent condition, please take a look if that's of interest, item number 300366765292

It's quite unusual to find an N1501 model in any condition nowadays, so thought some fellow collectors reading this page might like to hear about it.

Best wishes

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 listed two V2000 VCRs on ebay. One is an example of the first Grundig 2x4, and the other is a Grundig 2x4 Super. Full details are on the item listings.

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).
