What is problem?

If the tapes you are using are "tight" it may be causing both the drop out and rew problems. Always a good idea when you buy fresh recording media to ff then threw it through to ensure that the tape is layered flat. they can tighten up in transit sometimes in shipping from manufacture. The unit will need some service work done also. A head clean could also help with the drop out. Use a Chamois tipped head cleaning tool to do thisusing iso alchol only AND A VERY GENTLE APPROACH. The drum heads themselves are very small and VERY FRAGILE!! Easily broken if you do not clean the correctly. Take it to a vcr/video camera tech for a clean and service of the tape path.

You don't say if it has developed this fault or if you have recently purchased it.
However the likely causes are that an electrical fault is causing a reduced voltage to the motor. Or if you have just got the machine somebody has adjusted the speed of the machine.
Some decks have one motor for both decks. On the base of the motor might be a slot. Inside will be a 'pot' that will adjust the speed. You will need a small screwdriver flat head type, to adjust, the playback speed.
Sometimes the speed adjust pot will be on the PC board. If your lucky the board will be marked! If not follow the leads of the motor to the board.
Sometimes the person who repaired the deck fits the wrong motor! I had one where they had fitted a 9 volt instead of a 12 volt motor. The motor at top speed could still not get up to what it needed to be!

I also have an MR-929. The information that you need is in the 'Stereophonic 4 track stereo''. As stereo is only two tracks, there is another 2 tracks in addition to the one you are listening to. Wind the entire reel to the empty spool, and then play that. As you have to physically turn the reel over to do so, you should then hear the other tracks (or track, if recorded in mono).
I use my 929 to play my parents recording of my family from the late 60s, which were recorded on a valve (tube) Ferguson machine, which had a green "magic eye" level indicator, which as a child I found fascinating!

Trace the wires from the head to the amp section. Put your finger on where they join (during playback) and see if you can get a buzz. If you can't on either channel, look for something that might be common to both channels. Either a switch, or a pre-amp IC, as being the cause of the fault.
