I assume what you get from a recording attempt is garbled video, or snow? Audio OK?

The first thing is to clean the video head. The best way is to do this manually: take the top cover off, and using a lint free cloth moistened with rubbing alcohol, or an electronic wash product, clean the head. The head is a rotating aluminum cylinder located near the backside of the deck assembly. The actual heads are at the bottom of this cylinder- you can see them- just place a finger in the moistened cloth, and turn the head a few rotations. You should be able to see some deposits on the cloth.

How do I change the vcr to 'SLP' - it seems to be stuck on 'SP'. (There is no "speed" button on my remote.)


Use the remote to get into the setup menus. There may be an option to change tape speed when recording. Alternatively, when you press record on the remote (or deck), you may have option to change the tape speed there.

The VCR part of your deck may be able to playback, but not record in SLP mode.

Searched around for the manual for your machine, and though there are references to it, it appears that a manual / information page doesn't exist for the model # that you listed.

Recording


I'm going to venture a guess that what might have happened is you changed the mode of recording. VCRs record in either short play, or long play, or even super long play. As the length of playtime goes up, the quality goes down, because for short play, a 6 hr tape will record only two, whereas a 12 hour tape will record four hours. More information is stored on the tape, so the quality of picture and sound increase, but a longer movie could be cut off. You can adjust the play-length with the sp/slp buttons on your remote control.

Vcr recording speeds


Yes. SP is "Standard Play" and LP is "Long Play", while EP/SLP are short for Extended Play/Super Long Play respectively.

What setting are you recording the programs on? SP, LP, SLP? Have you tried setting the multiple recordings on the long-play (SLP) option. Is this a VCR or a DVD Burner?

Speed


I assume by "last longer" you mean more record/play time.  The slp mode is the slower tape speed, which means longer record/play time.  The trade-off with the slower speed is poorer video quality.

As regards tape life, if this is what you mean- I don't know- tape life is often a matter of the quality of the tape itself.
