SOURCE: TEAC V770 3head tape deck.
The unit sounds like it has a take up clutch or takeup idler problem. Check all the drive assemblies in the unit. Remove the cover from the front of the transport inside the cassette well, and check the condition of the idlers and reel base drives. The counter belt can also gatherup and prevent the takeup reel from working correctly, or fire the auto stop mechanism preventing it from playing, although that sounds to be ok in this case as the unit will FF and REW ok. The takeup drive is supplied by a different drive idler as it requires much lower and more controlled torque. This unit was always considered to be a great tape deck and is well worth a bit of attention for restoration. You can get a new belt kit for $19.00 from here

This is a convergence problem; in the customer menu there is an option to adjust it----if red or blue will not move in some direction---one of the two convergence IC's is bad and both need to be replaced.
I have step by step instructions telling what you will need for this repair. They are in Microsoft word----let me know if you want them and I will email them to you. You can buy both chips for this set on Ebay for about 13 dollars plus shipping for a pair.
I do this here for free so if this has helped you take a moment and give me a vote here.

Testimonial: "Thanks I appreciate the info. Very quick response."
I don't know anything about the "eats tapes". You can take out your tape fairly easily thought. All you need to do is
unscrew screws on the left and right side of unit
remove the cover
use a flat head screw driver to gently push down on a white lever on the side of the drive mechanism while pushing the eject button
