I think the tape path is incorrect. But still working probably?

    actually, it should work, just not ideally. The tape is still between the pinch roller and capstan. I wouldn't put it in rewind or fast forward like that, but I suspect the current owner has done so.

    capstan going wrong way for it to work . the rubber wheel would turn the wrong way for it to work like that . forwards play it should go clockwise .
