Question about Sharp Televison & Video
Your concern indicates a probable fault in the take up spool (right side). Often this would be only a belt that requires replacement. In some instances, it could be the clutch under the "take-up" spool. You could try exercising the tapes (forward/rewind) before playing as in some occasion, the tape may be stuck/adhering to one another. Other than the last possibility, the unit has to be opened up and work be done inside. Should you be uncomfortable on a DIY (do-it-yourself) perhaps your best be would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

It sounds like the sensor to tell the microcontroller that the tape is moving is not working. If that is so, the VCR would probably do the same thing in FF or Rewind. If you end up taking this unit into a repair shop, have them check the DVD's software version (it should be 1.250) If below that number, have them upgrade that as well. You can check the version yourself by pressing 1,2,3,4 and then "display" on the remote while the unit is on and no disc in DVD. After noting the version, just hit "power" on the remote to exit this mode.
