Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
I've seen this on other types of recorders, and it almost always boils down to the tape driving mechanism needing cleaning. Oxides can build up and cling to the tape, causing all kinds of wrinkles. You will either have to open it up and clean it or have it serviced. If you elect to do it yourself, read up on tape head cleaning, since they can be easily destroyed. Buy the chamois leather cleaner sticks. There are many articles on cleaning various tape heads, but I couldn't run down anything on this device. This website details the process for a VCR, and should be close to your unit:
Good luck, hope this helps...I kept my vcr alive with 2 resoldering of cracked solder joints and numerous hand cleanings (plus a dab of grease) for 24 years, so I know it works!
