I have the same unit which had the same problem. It has to do with dirty contacts on each tape mechanism.
Remove the main cover and look down on each tape mechanism. You will see 4 contacts on each unit. These come in contact with the tape. Remove each unit by removing 4 holding screws.
You will now be able to spray some contact cleaner into the front of the plastic contact cover. I removed the covers on both of the second from the right contacts so that I could clean them with an abrasive. These are the main ones.
Put everything back the way it was and the tape deck should work great.

Make sure you have the correct model # and go to the Yamaha web site. There is no K-700 but there is a K-720 (I have this tape deck).

No play but fast forward and reverse work ok--yes it is the drive belt. I disassembled the unit to find that the belt is actually sticky and stuck to both weighted flywheels, the drive motor pulley and managed to stick to itself. The drive motor is warm from trying to turn. Now, anyone know where to find the belt??
