Re: Too fast playback of video cassette
Initially, I am inclined to think that nothing is wrong. It is just most likely that that particular tape was recorded in a different speed other than what your VCR is capable of playing. This is a form of compression wherein a longer recording/playing time is squeezed into the same type/kind of tape. The various settings are SP, LP, EP or even an XP. Pls click here to give you an idea of the recording time/speed at different settings.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

The idler wheel (that only drives the tape in play or scan modes) is
slipping too much (very common problem). Try verify this by
putting the tape in play then immediately press the fast fwd or rewind
buttons to scan the tape. On older machines, the idlers used
rubber friction tires - on newer ones, a clutch. Either replace
the tire or increase the spring tension on the clutch.

Yes, that is a possibility. Also check the mechanism which activates the brakes- is something sticking or broken? A dried or sticky grease can cause the brake mech. to hang up.
A broken or cracked lever or slide piece could be your problem too.
Late VCRs of the last 10+ years are rather breakable, unlike the older ones which were often built like tanks, comparatively speaking.
Not all tracking is created equal, and this is a classic example of what you want to do in the future. Make sure that the tape you want to play back in the secondary machine has been recorded originally in the "SP" mode. "EP mode sometimes has too much crosstalk to effectively play in other machines without the more closely spaced tracks interferring with each other. Hop this helps...Accordianman
the switch is on the electronic board under the tape compartment. you have to unscrew the screws and unplug all the wires to take it out. be careful though, you have to put it back the way it was otherwise you will mess up the machanisim on that machine. good luck
