Sadly, most have disappeared in recent years -- mostly due to the worldwide recession. The UK options were always less than the USA options, which is no surprise given the size difference. Even in the USA, we now have (at most) a half dozen options. There used to be at least 3x as many.

We suggest TGrant to all our users here, though I'm sure it'd be pricey to ship a heavy VCR stateside.

Perhaps he has a lead?
I was hoping some of our European forum members would chime in, but none have so far.

Thanks for your reply
luckily they are all working and in perfect condition despite their age having had very little use so when i get the time i will have around 2 out of my set of 5 for sale which are new
They are not top models but none the less new machines are hard to come by and will be satisfactory for most purposes

I'm in the UK and am happy to advise and help with Panasonic service where I can, as a qualified repair tech. The FS-200 has no belts, being a G deck, however some points are worth servicing - and a new roller fitting as a matter of course as the roller when worn will skew the tape.

I used to, but now don't as a general rule for two reasons - parts availability, which is just not there any more, and I don't have room to store scrap machines to raid for parts, and also shipping, which now my post office has closed makes it awkward. However I have a few spare parts and tools for servicing and alignment so help as I can.
