I recently picked up a 2X4 Super with an annoying fault - when you try and play a tape, it laces up correctly, but then the reels don't move. It sits there, effectively in pause mode, for a few seconds, and then goes into emergency shutdown.

Loading, unloading, fast-forward and rewind all seem to work normally, it just refuses to turn the reels in play mode. The tape itself isn't jammed - it works on my other 2X4.

Also, can anyone offer advice troubleshooting the DTF system on the 2X4?

Anyone got a working Philips N1700 or N1702 VCR-LP machine ? As I've got a couple of tape I would like to transfer - one is a Scotch LVC120 and the other a Philips LVC150.

Thanks.

I have available for disposal 2 x Philips 2020 V2000 VCR's and 2 Grundig 2x4 Super V2000 VCR's.I do not use these any more and they have been in my spare room for several years. I tested them around 2 years ago and they were still working.Also have a few tapes.

I used to repair V2000 VCR's years ago and have quite a few spares for the Grundig 2x4 super.

E-mail with your requirements. I can supply some working and tested panels for the Grundig 2x4 Super.

Location: Manchester UK.

Hi I have a small sound studio, running Cubase5, Soundforge5 on PC, with all the basic equipment needed to record, master etc.I am totally new to the Beta scene and would like to know what would be the most cost effective way for me to have a Beta system up and running. Would it mean syncronising my current set up to a Beta machine, with a TV screen? I have no idea! I would like to be able to do voice-overs/music to existing beta material, master it and have it ready for the client in Beta format.Any info would be much appreciated.ThanksCraig

I have several Grundig V2000 VCRs and a quantity of brand-new (well, 17 year old!) 2 hour cassette tapes of the type originally sold with new VCRs. If someone out there wants to make me an offer for the tapes (approx 20) I would be most interested.Incidentally, before powering-up an old Grundig V2000 machine, please be sure to replace the Power Supply capacitors, C420 & C423, with RS part number 124-5579 and C424 with RS part number 124-5591. These are 275V wkg items, as opposed to the original 250V wkg items which have a tendency to catch fire! The battery on the Microprocessor Card will probably need to be replaced. This can be bought from Farnell, part number 863-968. Belt Kits and Pinch Rollers are available from Grandata, part numbers BK94 and PR162 respectively.

Oh yes ... and has anyone got any pre-1980 video recordings (maybe on Philips N1500 / N1700 or a reel to reel format like the CV2000) that the BBC might be interested in for their Treasure Hunt appeal. http://www.bbc.co.uk/treasurehunt

Well I can't think of anything to say about V2000 today - but I would like to ask if anyone knows of a working Sony CV2000 (that's a reel to reel video recorder not a Sony version of the V2000) - as I've got some tapes recorded on that type of machine in the 405 line format.

Thanks, Keith.

To Keith Mc Hugh:

Hi Keith, I own 2 fully functional Philips VR2023 's and recently got a VR 2334 VCR (wow what a marvelous machine!!!)I saw in the archived messages that you have the schematics for the 2120 and the 2220, my gut feeling is that these will be very useful for me.the 2334 is in fact, just these two units fitted together in one unit ;-)there is even room in the enclosure that is used for the battery pack in the 2220!! and the units are physically separated in the 2334.If you still have the schematics, I'll be interested in them.Ofcourse, the original schematics/service documentation of the 2334 would be even better

Cheers,

Rik

Thanks for that, Keith.

Another PALsiter helped with the pinouts for the N1500, and so I did a bit of poking around with the DIN socket last night - interestingly, it seems that it's actually non-standard. I was expecting pin 2 to be video, pin 3 ground, and pin 4 audio; in fact while pin 3 is indeed ground, pin 4 is video and pin 6 is audio (there was no audio on pin 2).

To Gareth

The 6-pin AV DIN socket on the Grundig 2x4 is fairly standard. I bought a scart kit from Argos a few years ago (the type with just about every connector you could possibly want).. in that kit the main lead was a 6pin to 6pin DIN which when fitted with one of the Scart adaptors will provide AV out from the 2x4 to a VHS or TV with a Scart input. The same socket is also fitted to the very old Philips N1500 recorders.

Not sure if you'll be able to record on the 2x4 the same way as one of the pins provides a switching signal to determine which way the signal is going down the cable (record or playback). If I can find the exact pin details I'll let you know.

Keith.

Thanks Rich - I'll give the heads a clean and see if that helps.

Still looking for help on the pinouts of the 2X4 AV DIN socket, though! =;-)
