It could be the rewind solenoid is jamed up or there is a switch that comes loose under the tape deck. Either way, it will need to be serviced.

When I take my foot off the pedal it rewinds farther than it should


Hello on a BM-147 there is only one adjustment responsible for auto back space when you used foot pedal and that adjustment is next to the Display is call Reverse Time that controls the reverse function when you take foot control off from play but if the problem is when you take the foot off on REW and unit keeps going you have a bad foot pedal you can get a replacement at http://www.tvps.com/Products/ECS-Sony-IN-75-Heavy-Duty-Foot-Pedal---Pre-Owned__ECS-PIN-75.aspx

Foot pedal FF or Rewinds when pressing Play


It's possible that there's a broken wire in the cable that connects the foot control to the machine. This usually happens near the plug that plugs into the machine, or by the end that goes into the foot control.

You can usually duplicate it if you put the auto-backspace up a bit and then hold down the play pedal on the foot control. While holding down the play pedal, try moving the cable near the machine or near the foot control in a circular motion. If the machine stops, rewinds or fast forwards, then odds are that the problem is with the cable.
