Question about Televison & Video
Tape drive mechanisms all work using friction drives - whether by belt
or by clutch. This allows for a little slip in the drive
mechanism to brevent breakage. As the VCR ages the friction will
of course tend to loosen until it starts having trouble like you
describe. Not all cassettes are exactly the same and the tighter
ones have trouble first. It needs a belt job.
Also, some of these Sonys have a defect in the capstan motor shaft sleeve that was molded a little off square and the motor will start to drag on the mounting plate eventually.
And be sure and lube the tape loading arm by the audio head.
Hope ya fix it!
