Do you mean that you can't receive any channels with the built-in tuner? In that case, the problem is that the tuner is analog and most stations world-wide are broadcasting in digital. You will need the appropriate digital-to-analog converter (set-top box with tuner). These directions assume OTA signal and an appropriate antenna. If you have cable, check your output and the specs of the cable tuner versus that of the VCR. Most VCRs can only tune in signals that come in over the RF input (coax). If the tuners aren't compatible, you can still record.
In any case, when you use a set top box, set the VCR to the appropriate input channel. (On some VCRs this was Line In or channel 3 or 4 but check your manual. I know the RF output to the TV had to be between 53 and 67. The documentation for the input isn't something I remember for this model.)
If you mean that you can't get tapes to play correctly, try cleaning the VCR. (You can either use a cleaning tape or isopropyl alcohol on cotton swabs after opening the cover to the VCR). Next you may need to adjust the tracking of the head. See your manual - there are buttons to adjust the tracking on the original remote.
I hope this helps.
