Hello I had the same issue the take up reel tensions need to be adjusted try this thread tape so that there is no slack hold one of the tension guide reels try the right one first hold it so that it is in the 12 oclock postion this is so that it wont retract to the left which will prevent the motor from stopping or going into the cut off position if it continues to play with you holding it in this position the the tension for the reels need adjusting this can be done by slightly turning the blue adjustment knobs that read PLAY / TU 7 FWD 10 one is for 7 inch reel and the other is for 10 inch reels it's the board at the very top of deck when you take the cover off turn them slightly to the left until problem is gone this is what I did and it worked

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!
