Question about Philips VR750 VHS VCR
The answer is easy take the top off the unit, and with an old video tape try it and watch what the video does. This is the only way really as the causes of tape damage are many, including objects that have got into the works. The only tape chew fault that can be put down to a single thing, is the crinkle bottom or top edge. Which is caused by the pinch roller being worn.
Once you see what it does you can post again and describe it, we are FixYa should be able to pin it down.

SOURCE: vhs tape gets chewed
the rubber belts and rubber capstan need cleaning/conditioning. you can attempt this with alcohol swabs and if you find rubber conditioner (in the past was easy to find in audio supply stores) apply some of this also. if this treatment does not solve, then may need new rubber belt kit. good luck.

If you are a handy person you could first unplug the VCR from the power outlet and remove the cover to see if some of the tape that was chewed up is wrapped around some of the tape path mechanism.
If you know someone techie who has some experience let them look at it and throw them a $20 for cleaning it.
May be best to just purchase a new DVD/VCR .
