Dry Joints

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.

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.

Slow mode

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.
