Just a guess. Have you cleaned the two conductors on the sensor? You can test its function by running the tape in either direction and shorting it with a non-ferrous metallic object, say, an aluminum. You don't want anything magnetic near your prerecorded tapes.

I'm pretty sure the auto-reverse is NOT supposed to work during recording. What would be the point since it only records in one direction?
And I'm pretty sure there's only one reverse sensor, usually to the left of the heads and not necessarily on a tension arm. The sensor foil is supposed to be on the non-oxide side of the tape so it will adhere better and never contact the heads.
This picture of a GX-635 shows a typical transport ...
There's a knob for how the auto reverse. Is it set correctly? I believe infinite forward / backward play is possible if you have the knob set properly, a sensor foil on the tape and the tape counter set to 0000 at the beginning of the recording.
