I used to replace faulty tapes of VCCs. But there are two questionsI couldn't answer right now.First, what kind of tape are the best for V2000? I'd like to havegood quality and hopefully a "new" 480min VCC with the correct timedisplay (on my 2x4 super). So the tape-thickness would be important.The VHS-tapes I tried seem to be to thick. Second, the tape end recognition is done by a "silver-line" onthe back of the tape. I wonder if there is a possibility to drawthis line myself. Till now, I used a tape-repair-kit to merge thenew tape with the ends of the old tape. But this way I have lessquality at the beginning/end and I wonder if the headdrum likesthe splice.Simon

V2000 tapes for sale, Use (or at least what they are labeled with) seems to be to tape TV, bought with a V2000, but the VCR didn't make the trip home. Buyer pay postage or collects. Make me an offer, there just in the way at the moment as I have no deck, and a girlfriend who thing s I have too much video junk anyway (11 VCRs isn't excessive is it?)

Hello,Can anyone provide me with the circuit diagram fo a Grundig 2x4 Super power supply please.I'm endeavouring to get to the bottom of the very common power supply fault that seems to bug nearly all of these machines. If I find an answer, it will be made common knowledge on this chat forum!Cheers, Ian.

I have a VR2022 breaking for spares. Looking for parts? Let me knowand I'll see what I can do. First come first served. Some of these parts I can test to ensure they work, some I cannot.

Email at the address above with details of the boards you are looking for and I'll see if I can help. Mechanism to go allinone if at all possible.

Thanks, Graham

Are there any outlets where 2000 pre recorded tapes can be obtained.

I have a broken Philips 2020 machine and about 10 Video 2000 tapes dating back to the early Eighties. The tapes are full of old BBC/ITV programmes/commercials of the time, old TOTP's etc etc...

I would like to play these tapes again or at the very least copy them to VHS.

Ideally though I'd like to buy a working Video 2000 machine. I'll pay a good and fair price and will collect within a 50 mile radius of London.

Many thanks

Not quite V2000, but still Philips.

I have two VCR format machines. One standard, broken machine. One long play, good working machine. And a few (big, square) tapes.Any offer considered - these must be historic. They're certainly heavy. Email me.

V2000 Clearout! Free stuff!I can't remember the model names exactly, I'm clearing out my old bedroom at my parent's house. I have a Philips VR2022 (I think) with cable remote and a Grundig 2x4 with a dodgy front flap and instruction book, and a few tapes. All working.Free to anyone who wants to collect them!

Does anyone know the exact thickness of the milar shim that is used to set the height of the video head on a 2nd generation Philips V2000 machine? Better still does anyone have a shim? Even better, does anyone have a new 2nd generation head which comes complete with the shim? Thanks.

I am looking to find a Philips VR202~ machine in good working order. Money no object - well, not exactly, but I want one pretty badly... have had three in the past (1981-1990), now all sadly defunct...
