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.
