It sounds like the taped program was recorded on a different speed. The other VCR that you are playing the taped program may not have the speed needed to play it correctly.
Next time when you record a program try to make sure you use a speed that will be compatible on both VCRs.
For example a tape that last 120 minutes, using the different speeds will give the following recording times.
SP means "Standard Play" >>>> 2 hours
LP means " Long Play" >>>>> 4 hours
ELP means " Extra Long Play" 8 hours
Older VCRs have all the 3 speeds but newer ones only have SP and ELP.
Hope this helps.

I assume this symptom appears when attempting to play a tape? If the picture is mostly snow, VCR may need video head cleaning. To do this, take the top cover off- You will note a cylindrical shiny aluminum drum- the actual heads are at the lower edge of this rotating drum.
Anyway, use a lint free cloth or special wipe moistened with rubbing alcohol, or product specifically made for such, carefully cleaning those heads as well as the drum itself. Occasionally, it may take 2 or 3 cleanings.
If the VCR has lots of hours, or abrasive head cleaners have been used, the head could be worn out. If so, toss the rig and purchase a new one. Head replacement is non-economical unless you have a high end machine.
