The video head probably needs cleaning. Remove the top cover, and using a lint free cloth (like maybe a dishtowel) moistened by a bit of rubbing alcohol, or a specific for head cleaning product, clean the rotating head carefully. This head is about 1.75 inch diameter and sits toward the back of the VCR mechanism. It is motor driven and will rotate at a carefully regulated speed when a tape is inserted.
Note: Most late VCRs state they have an automatic head clean feature, but it doesn't always get everything, especially if you have a tape that is loosing oxide badly.

That means you need a cleaning. Unscrew and take off the VCR
cover. See the 2 (maybe 4) little windows on the outside of the
cylinder head? (round metal thing on a tilt that spins) Those are the
video heads and are very easily clogged with contamination causing loss
of video. Take a piece of leather the size of a postage stamp,
wet it with a little alcohol and just hold it on the side of the
cylinder head while you spin the cylinder gently with the other hand to
GENTLY wash these heads. Don't move the leather at all -
especially up and down as the heads will easily break off. Let
them dry for a minute and try to watch a tape. May need to do
this several times to get a good picture. Can squirt alcohol
directly on the heads and really soak them if needed. Last resort
is to use something really strong like acetone, but beware this will
also melt any plastic parts it touches.
Hope Ya Fix it!
