Stein. The problem with your VR2022 (B&O Clone) sounds like a head switching problem. The adjustment for head switching can be found on the DTF plug in boards to the right of the cassette compartment. This will explain your jittery pictures and the white snow that happens when you play a recording on another machine. When you make the adjustments, remember the exact position they were in, just in case you adjust the wrong one. The VR2020 probably has a blown reel motor drive transistor. Check the transistors attached to the heat sink at the rear of the machine for short circuits. Replacements are easily available. Rich.

I have two VCR's and two problems.1. Bang&Olufsen Beocord 8802-V ( VR 2022 clone). When playing pre-recorded tapes the picture is jumping like on a TV where the vertical hold is out of order. Sound is OK. When playing new tapes that is recorded on this VCR, both sound and picture is exellent. When playing tapes recorded on this VCR on another one, there is a wide stripe with snow at the bottom of the picture.2. Philips VR 2020. Good playing of pre-recorded tapes (but it was this machine that gave snow on the bottom with the tape from the B&O machine). Stops and turns off when windind/rewinding after a couple of seconds.Any idea of what's wrong with the two machines? Thanks in advance.

WANTED - PHILIPS N17xx RECORDER

Hi, I'm looking for a Philips N1700 or N1702 recorder. Cosmetic condition not important if working , but will also consider any dead or dying machines if heads are ok. all P+P costs met.

Come on, why not rationalize your spares pile and get a bit of cash to keep your other kit running :-)) or how about a swap / px for a classic GPO Phone ? candlestick through to Trimphone available

Thanks for looking

I have a Philips VR2022 V2000 Video Recorder. The machine is in unmarked condition. No scratches or scuffs. All the controls and displays work perfectly. The only problem is that sometimes when tapeing It stops and shuts down after about hour. Other times it will tape the full tape with no problems If anybody can repair the machine, and stop this problem they are welcome to take the machine for FREE. But he or she must be willing to collect it. I live in South Manchester next to Manchester Airport.

Rare opportunity! Grundig 2x4 plus. Basically sound, but irritating machine! Two simple but elusive faults. Second machine for spares and manual (photocopy). House-move imminent, hence FREE if collected from Harrow, Midd'x before 6th Aug. Also Philips VR2022 for spares. Same price.

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.
