Question about Cameras
It sounds like it needs a clean / service.
Look through the tape window you will probably see that the right hand spool isn't turning, the most likely problem is the idler assembly or take up clutch needs replacing.
But if the take up spool is going backwards there may be something sticky on the capstan or pinch roller, cleaning both with isopropyl alcohol (as a cleaning tape wont work) should help but I would recommend having the whole tape path cleaned, this will involve removing the cameras cover
