Hello everyone!  Im completely new to the Boombox Troubleshooting Game......so bear with me. lol


Tapes play fine at first but after a few minutes (almost the length of an average song) the speed of playback speeds up quite noticeably.  


It doesn't matter what part of the tape is playing (the beginning, middle or towards the end).  I can stop the tape....start it again and it will play at what seems to be normal speed.  Then the problem repeats.


Any idea if it's just the belts or maybe it is another problem?


Any help would be much appreciated.
