It is generally the tapes in my experience.  A couple of things can work.
Put the tape in and run it back and fourth a few times with the speeds all
maxed that is the switch on 1-78 and the pitch control maxed.  

Another trick that I read somewhere is to put the tape and a slightly damp
washcloth in a zip lock and leave it overnight.  It sometimes works.

Joni, I've had this problem several times and did not find a ready 
solution.  I finally settled on Scotch...not for the tapes, for me...after 
a shot or three, I decided the squealing was in the key of H major and 
christened it a new sonata.

Dan, who still remembers P D Q Bach's shleptet in q minor
