Question about Personal Cassette Players
I'm listening to an audio book on cassette tape. The audio voices fade in and out almost symmetrically, and there is an echo in the background - so when the speaker says a line, in quietly repeats itself as the tape continues to play. I've "adjusted" the pad a little (to increase the pad pressure against the tape) which helped, but there is only so far it can be adjusted before the tape wants to hang in the cassette player. Any advice on how to repair would be greatly appreciated!

WHAT HAPPENS TO CASSETTES THAT WON'T PLAY
By Margie Crawford
Cassettes can be damaged in a
number of ways. Besides just wearing
out, they can be broken, twisted,
stretched, stuck, demagnetized or
missing the pressure pad. Most of these
problems can be repaired except for
demagnetization which causes the
audio to fade in and out.
Cassettes can be demagnetized at the
self-check out terminals so do not
place them on the machine while
checking out other items. At home
do not place them on speakers or near
magnets. If the audio sounds backwards
or like a foreign language, it is twisted
and can be repaired.
