I just brought up some old VHS tapes from the garage and after I rewinded and ejected two fine working tapes, I got a lousy one, which I tried to "fix" using the "ATR" (I think it means adjust tracking or something) button and now when I try to watch a tape, even my recently taped things, they play at a super fast rate, like I'm fast-forwarding it. I tried unplugging it, but I really don't know what to do. Help. Mine is a Daewoo VCR that I bought in April 2005.

Re: My VCR is playing too fast
Try recording on a blank tape and setting the tape speed to SP (standard play). you should also see options for (LP-long play) and SLP (super long play). I think your machine is stuck on SLP option. if no-go, look for a manual on the web.

assuming you have power to the machine , i would suggest the ejection drive belt has stretched , 2 choices here , take it somewhere and get it fixed or unplug it from power supply and remove the top casing yourself and have a look.
This unit requires the rubber parts to be replaced. The loading sequence is not completing properly. The VCR will eject the tape when the sequence fails as a safety measure to prevent damage to either the VCR or the tape.
It sounds like the cassette is not releasing the tape so the machine can put it around the heads. This could damage the machine. Don't use it. A two dollar tape is not worth damaging your vcr. Throw it away.
I had a suggestion that did work. Reach into the VHS compartment with left hand and press down toward the back of the tape. With the right hand press the eject button a few times and the tape did come out. I would not buy a Samsung product again. No help from their 800 tech support. No more playing the VHS side of the player. Lynn
What do you mean 'Tape crunches" Do you mean that there is tape slack, which then crunches when Tape is lifted during Eject? If that is the case, then the Supply Reel Roller Brake is bad. it is a Felt Pad, which needs replacing.
If the entire eject operation is wonky, or if it's timing is bad, then I suspect that One of the eject Gears (On either side of the Mechanism) is damaged and needs to be replaced.
One question, i assume that you are able to eject the Tape eventually, and so - Does the Tape Load into the VCR properly, when you insert it into the machine? This will help me in giving you a better diagnosis.
