If the tape was recorded on a machine like the Panasonics with EP mode then it must be played on a machine with this facility

Depending on your VHS player, you man have only two(2) speeds. I bough A Philco Player as a backup once.
If u want to try something, because I don't know make & model number.
Place your tape in & out (eject) a couple of times. The last IN, foward & rewind ( to the end of tape ) It won't hurt if u do it twice(2x) Then play normaly. See what happens.
I also would agree with: ACCORDIANMAN
"" The only other possibility is that your machine is out of alignment ""
Thats when the LED'S that detect the ""the tracking signal, imbedded in the tape, is not being read due to bad tape, bad tracking head/ circuit,etc. "" [I am 'Biting' ACCORDIANMAN'S words]
Try the " forward\rewind " test which MAY realign tape to VCR.

More than likely, your VCR cannot detect the speed that the tape was recorded in. Either that, or the tracking signal, imbedded in the tape, is not being read due to bad tape, bad tracking head/ circuit,etc. Open the tape cassette door and look at the top edge of the tape itself. Be sure that there are no creases there. The only other possibility is that your machine is out of alignment, but you seemed to imply that other tapes were fine...accordianman

This is automatic, as the record speed can only be manipulated, not playback unless youhave that setting which I have never seen,

My vcr tapes play too fast


If I remember correctly, VCR players had three speed settings. SP-short play, LP-Long play, and SLP- Super long play. The vcr is supposed to be able to tell what speed the tape was recorded at, thus playing it back at the correct speed. If your unit has lost the ability to sense the speed the tape was recorded then you will have to set the speed manually, if possible. Other than that I would have to say it's time to get a new vcr.

I record sports events on my dvd recorder on slp 6 hrs and when i rewatch the screen goes blurry when the action starts


SLP is the lowest picture quality possible for a DVD recording. Due to the extreme compression used for this mode, fast motion and detail are lost. It's one of the costs of long playing time. Try the next recording speed faster?

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

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.

My VCR is playing too fast


try recording on a blank tape and setting the tape speed to SP (standard play). you should also see options for (LP-long play) and SLP (super long play). I think your machine is stuck on SLP option. if no-go, look for a manual on the web.
