Hello, my name is***** be happy to assist you.
This kind of problem occurs mostly due to lose rubber belts in tape mechanism and replacement of belts would help to resolve the problem but it would be hard to obtain required belts as this unit is approx 21 years old.
Required belts part number is ***** follows..
###-##-####Belt FR Square &###-##-####Belt Flat Capstan for one tape deck and you need two set of belts to replace them on both tape decks.
Please check following link to download service manual copy of this unit if trying to repair it yourself and use above belts part numbers to search/ google it for price and stock info if available anywhere...
