Video 2000  



Inside the VCR

Inside the V2080 shows many hall marks of Philips construction. The style of construction is similar to that used in the manufacture of the NV1500 series VCR. Indeed it would appear that the same production line might well have been used. If you look carefully at the cables which inter-connect the PCB's you can see the large plugs and sockets which suffer badly from dry joints.

Video Heads

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.
