it has probably thrown the capstan belt and will require a new belt fitted. the transport relies on capstan rotation to engage play. a separate reel motor operates ff/rew and takeup funtions

If the tape transport doesn't move up on play, but you can push it up and pull it down by hand, the grease on pivots is all dried up. you can take it apart and clean it. replace belt while your at it.

Check leaf switches and also, press play -- after a few minutes, feel motor(s) for heat build up. If it gets hot, either motor is bad of something is preventing it from rotating

the problem is the clicking spring of the pinch roller,that pushing through the spindle,maybe is weak or is not there,try to find out inside the deck,if you cannot find it.Improvised a clicking spring by means of the string of the guitar number 00,is good of making spring.

The deck will need new belts and idler drives cleaned and serviced, and perhaps some idler tyres replaced. You can get a belt kit from these guys. replacing them is not such a difficult job if you have some mechanical aptitude. Just take it slowly, and focus on getting the transport out of the unit.

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.
