U-matic tape mechanism doesn't wind/rewind/play

Old u-matic videotapes fail to fast-forward, rewind or play. Some tapes wind very slowly and then stop the machine, and I have to eject to get it started again. However, some tapes work just fine, so it isn't the tape deck. How do I loosent the mechanism to get it to move more freely? IFYI, the video is still good on these 25 year-old tapes. I only need them to work once to copy them to current digital format.
