Hi there.

Have you tried using more than one tape-- as in switching to a different tape and starting play?

Some times, it's a problem with the tension on the current tape's wind.

Have you tried fast forwarding the tape to the end and then rewinding it? remedy a poorly wound tape...

Let me know and we can take it from there!
