The most likely culprits are #1 the belt that controls the cassette mechanism has gone bad/loose or broken # 2 the switches that control the mechanism are dirty or broken Both would require removal of the unit from the car and you'd need to bring it to a electronics repair shop. Any decent tech would charge $75-125 to do it right. They'd also clean the heads and tape path, so it'll probably sound a lot better once they are done. good luck!
