Question about Sony Televison & Video
Does the VCR shut its self off after you press play or is it just not showing on your TV? I have an older model TV and I have to put it on and AUX channel by pressing input on the remote then I am able to play any VHS. If it is your VCR that won't let you even press play then it may need to be cleaned or repaired.

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.
Hope Ya Fix It.

The heads need cleaning and/or the tapes are old and dirtying up the playing heads.
Run a wet tape head cleaner through an see if this improves.
