I'm looking for a manual (copies fine)for a 2034 Philips V2000 recorder.My 95 year old uncle has just bought one to watch his tapes! Ideally inDutch, but English would be fine too.

Yes, I know I work for Philips, but it's not so easy to find the rightpeople in an organisation with over 250.000 collegues....

Does anyone have any knowledge of the Grundig 2x4 1600 ? I've just picked one up, but the only mode it will stay in is 'still frame' when I try to play/rew or ff the machine shuts down after about a seconds and the pause light flashes.

The tape does appear to be moving correctly but the tape counter seem to be stuck at 0000. How does the counter work in this model , does it rely on any sensors - if so could this be the cause of the machine's continual shut down.

All help gratefully appeciated,

thanks,Keith.

Can anyone help me with a new fault I now have with my PYE VR2022 ?

I've just cleaned all the contacts on the 3 boards on the right side of the tape tranport - which seems to have cured it's fault of no/poor head drum rotation. But I've now discovered a new fault which appears to be DTF related. First the tape is running to fast with noise running through the picture and also why I think it's DTF related is that there are noise bars when the machine is in still frame or picture search modes (acting more like a VHS does rather than a clear picture).

I have pleanty of spare boards I can swap with a machine I broke up a few years ago but would like to know which board is responsible for the DTF rather than having to swap them all over.

thanks,

Keith.

anyone that can provide me with a schematic of the portable tuner VR2120. In fact I only need to know the DIN connector pinout. I want to use the tuner standalone to use it as tuner for my PC. Exchanging tuner+recorder for a PC-TV card is ok for me too.

During my previous research on the politics of the Northern Ireland "troubles", I taped a number of documentaries. When I returned to the States I couldn't find a recorder that would play them. I understand there is a video recorder available in the U.S. that will play both PAL tapes and whatever we use and the cost is about what we would pay for a regular recorder. Anyone who knows where I can purchase one in the Delaware, Washingtin, D.C. area I would appreciate hearing from you. Thanks

Hi everybody,

I have 2 vr2334, 1 portable, but their heads are dead... And I have a vr2023 (all this in secam, I'm in france), with "new" heads (when I found it, it was almost new), but I have a little problem :It works perfectly, but in black and white until it is hot (it takes 15 minutes before the colors appears !) I remember that the problem appeared after I try to watch a film during a storm, and the electricity was coming, and going, and coming again... I know I should not do that, but I did ! :)) Any idea of which component is dead (and on which pcb ?)Or is it possible to find the scheme of this vcr ?

Thanks,Patrice.

Hoi, ik ben op zoek naar een eignaar van een goed werkende V2000 in de buurt van hilversum, ik werk voor een omroep bedrijf en wij hebben een klant die graag V2000 tapes wil over zetten naar VHS / Betacam. Vandaar dat wij de machine een dag willen lenen, Hier staat dan wel tegenover dat je in ruil voor deze dienst bij ons het het muziek archief ( > 250.000 titels), wat mag kopieren. De machine in kwestie hoeft niet op te kunnen nemen, stereo te zijn of perfect beeld te geven, zolang hij maar afspeelt!Voor meer informatie bel naar Ad Roland Media telefoon 035 6281111 en vraag naar Walter Steenvoorden

It plays for about 10 seconds then shuts off.HELP!! I've got 3 of the V2000's so Idon't want to get another one,but I would like to make one good oneout of the 3. The reason I'm still keeping them,is because I've got about 3 dozen films,and about 2 dozen tapes,so it's worth the botherof getting them sorted out.Also,where can i get a new head from? It's so long since I've played it,that the head must be DEAD by now. Are there any Video engineers who still repair V2000? I live in Margate,soif anyone can help,please let me know. I still believe that the V2000is still the BEST system going,,,even though it is antiquated.Is there anyone in Kent who canm help? If you can,please mail me. Thanks. Robin Taylor (27.3.2000)

How about starting a section on PALSITE to cover the other Philips Video systems (VCR / N1500) (VCR-LP / N1700). I've got two of the original N1500 machines with the cooker timer style clocks one is ex- Tyne Tees TV (but has gone very rusty inside from being stored in someone's garage) and the other which was recovered from a tip some years ago still in it's original flight case has head drum servo problems. Hoping to get hold of a N1702 very soon.

My VR2020 "chings"! Is it normal, when pressing stop for the machine to make a noise almost like a typewriter bell? It's really quite noticeable. Hope it's not early signs of something wearing out.

I still have a tape in V2000 format of the 1987 FA cup-final between Coventry City and Tottenham (I am a Coventry supporter). I wish to copy it onto a VHS tape. Can anyone help??? After conversion, the 2000 format can be kept by anyone who can help me.

Thanx

I have a Philips VR2020 which is fully functional, it has been in it's original packaging and box for the last 7 years. I have the user manual and a number of tapes. As I say it is fully functional, as I tried it out yesterday, and was reminded what brilliant quality the V2000 system was. Wife wants it out of the way because of it's size, therefore any reasonable offers accepted. The only stipulation is that you must collect from Reading, Berkshire.Look forward to hearing from someone.

I have decided to get rid of the faulty V2000 because I dont have the time or space to keep it. I will try and sell it, but the buyer must collect from Preston, Lancashire. I was looking for offers on the machine, and 12 cassettes. It has a remote which works, yet the machine has a fault (as previously mentioned) so if you make a offer to my EMail address I will try to get in touch. All the best Luke

I have been given a Philips Vr 2022, Video Cassette Recorder. It came with 13 cassettes and uses the V2000 format. However it has not been used in a LONG time and now I cannot get it to work. After turning the machine on, all the lights, clock, counter etc. lights up. The ejecct button works, however if you insert a V2000 cassette and try to Play, Record, Fast Forward or Rewind the machine makes a hammering noise and the tape moves VERY slowly. After about 20 - 30 seconds the machine gives up and ejects the cassette. I hope soolmeone can suggest a fault, and / or a solution, as I wish to copy the cassettes over to Betamax (not VHS!!). All the Best. Luke

Great site. I have a 2x4 Super and a Pye 22vr20 portable all owned since new. The Super picture is jumpy in picture modes (any ideas?). Trivia - PD Magnetics sold a VCC540 tape (4hours 30 mins a side). I picked one up in a department store in Amsterdam a few years ago.

PALsite have just added the full details of the 22AVS530 Video In/Out Adaptor. There are full circuit descriptions and alsosimplified versions. The adaptor was used to allow audio and video in and out connections to the V2020 -> V2023 models.

Wrong model number in above message - the portable I want heads/contact bridge for is a Philips VR2220 with the VR2120 tuner/timer unit.

Thanks again.

Does anyone want any parts from a PYE 20VR22 that I'm breaking up ? This also suffered from the head drum problem I meantioned earlier but since I also have a Philips VR2022 with a similar problem.

Also does anyone know a source of Video heads and contact bridge for the portable V2000 ( VR2022 ). It's still working at the moment but the head are looking a bit worn and it's recordings contain a lot of drop-out.

...and finally a problem with a ITT VR483 ( VR2021 clone) , the tape runs very slack after it leaves the drum and keeps getting chewed up around the pinch roller.

Thanks,Keith McHugh.

Anybody out there interested in a Philips VR2021 (I think) V2000 VCR?My parents have had one in their attic for years and they might be planningto junk it - I reckon it would be very cheap (or maybe even free), foranyone who wants to ship it (it's heavy though!)Last used in 1992, when the TV tuner (and playback) has a flickeringhorizontal band going up (or down?) the screen....

Hi Keith,

are you able to scope the connections to the motor. It would be interesting to know if the motor is stopping because it is brokenor because the singles to it have stopped.

Does anyone know a cure to this fault that seems to happen to all the early Philips V2000 machines I've had in the past.

Sometimes the machine starts to lace up but the head drum isn't spinning, or is only spinning slowly or spins normally then stalls either at the end of the loading sequence or a few seconds into playback.This seems to happen mainly with the VR2022 machines I've had - one got this fault after having a head change.

Any thoughts ?Thanks,Keith McHugh

Whilst developing this new site, it definitely brought back some fond memories. I never owned one of these units personally but a number of my friends had them. They always looked like a superior system, as usual that simply means it won't succeed. Just imagine where we would be today if this system had stayed strong!

Good Luck with the V2000 site. I'm too young to remember the format but it was very interesting reading about all the early features that Philips thought up and how they were adopted by the newer formats so much later. I was also intrigued by a reference to an earlier video system made by Philips. Any plans to do a site for this Alan?
