Question about Nakamichi Audio Players & Recorders
This may be a reel sensor problem, or the rotation of one of the reels is stopping for some reason. Most of the time, these faults are mechanical. There can be worn belts, or drive wheels, or gears, and etc. Sometimes there are faults in the electronics where a sensor is not being read properly.
The unit should be properly checked to evaluate the fault.

First let me say Hi!! It's very nice to see you on this site Calum, I've seen your work and im a fan.
Now let's talk about your issue. It seems to me that you might have a problem with the motor that controlls the pulleys, it could be either one. Or you might have a loose pulley, again it could be A or B. Try to stare at them in action to see which one it is, and also listen for any strange sounds they might make when rotating.. Good luck!

It could be the take up spindle does not have enough torque causing the tape to bunch up after the capstan. If you open up the unit you will notice ether belts or rollers for the tape drive. If it has belts you can replace the belt after cleaning the pulleys. If it has rollers you may be able to clean them with a rubber cleaner (not alcohol which will dry the rubber and cause glazing). Make sure the capstan and the pinch roller is clean using a rubber revitalizing cleaner on the pinch roller. "Goof off" from a hardware store is great for the capstan if it has a lot of metal oxide on it.
