Sanyo VPC-HD2000 parts (replace the remote)

As many of you know, we have been writing (and using) the last 2 High Definition Sanyo camcorders (the Sanyo VPC-HD1000, VPC-HD1010 and now the VPC-HD2000). The Sanyo VPC-HD2000A (A is for the US version) is a fabulous camera / camcorder! See our review at

But when you are taking several hours of taping each week, giving it the "use" test, things tend to get LOST. And the remote is very very small- about 1 inch square.
My Editor has now lost 3 of them, over time.... he loses lots of things, so this is nothing new (grin). And several years ago, we asked if we could get a replacement and Sanyo said, "No they were not sold separately".

So I tried again, and things have changed! They now have a company called that will sell some of these hard to find items for the Sanyo HD2000 video camera. And in fact the remote will work on all 3 cameras (you can change the code so it will not change the other camera if you have 2 camcorders shooting at one time).

The remote for the HD-2000 was only $28.67 and it is located in Gardena, CA (south of Los Angeles), so we picked it up and now all is well again with the Remotes and the Sanyo HD-2000!
