Hello,

I recently restored my AIWA tape deck to working condition and I was going to listen to my old tapes collection. To my disappointment, all cassette by EMI are failing: as soon as the magnetic tape start after the leader, the capstan slippers and the tape does not advance. I googleed a bit and found out that is common issue with EMI pre-recorded tapes from late 80's (and indeed all my EMI cassette from 1985~89): has anyone figured out what is the problem ? On inspection, the tapes look fine: rewind/fastforward works perfectly fine, only playback has problem.

Any help will be apprecited.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
