Like most Philips models this VCR suffered from problems
associated with dry solder joints. Before carrying out
anything else it is advisable to check the PCB's for dry joints.
In particular the power supply section and it's linear regulators
should be checked.
If the VCR suffers from mistracking first check the voltage
drive to the piezo-electric crystals used in the Dynamic Tracking
circuits. Video heads for V2000 machines are now rare and extremely
difficult to obtain.
This model has an incredibly slow times 1/8 speed playback. Which
gave near perfect noise free playback because of the Dynamic
Track following system.
