wrinkled tape

We shot on an XL2 (if that matters) but captured it using another camera and it ate part of the tape. It's too wrinkled for the camera to play. We are going to try playing it on the XL2 to see if it will play it. If it can't, is there a way to straighten the tape out a bit to "iron" out those wrinkles enough to play it?

Surely there's some little tip or trick we could do. Thanks!

Hi Jonathan. I have had a similar problem in the past when a JVC deck chewed up my tape. I would not risk playing the wrinkled section on the XL2 at all, in case the tape gets snarled on the mechanism and causes worse problems. Best thing (in my opinion) is to wind the tape manually past the wrinkled section and carefully capture or copy it from that point onwards. (Hopefully it is not wrinkled all the way.)
