Check the capstan/pinch roller to see if there is any debris and clean if necessary. If the issue is consistent, in that it's happening with several different cassettes, and you have checked/replaced the battery then there may be an issue with the transport motor and it may need service. Give Sony product support a call for assistance: ... l=WMFX290W
