When I load a VHS tape into my tv it whirs for a sec & then turns off

When I load a VHS cassete into the tv it makes a whirring noise , some scrambly picture shows up for a brief second and then the tv shuts off. the rest of the tv is fine, but the vhs part doesn’t seem to work.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

It could be the tape you are trying is damaged. Try a different tape.

Could be the VCR is dirty and needs cleaning.

Try placing a tape in player and ff to the end of tape, then rewind all the way. Then try playing again. If tape inst moving , it could also mean a belt broke or fell off inside,
