Thanks Bronco Billy. Turns out it is the capstan drive belt. I removed the belt and replaced it with a rubber band and it now works. Ordered a new belt from ebay.
I have an Onyko TA-2600. It will operate in fast forward of fast rewind modes. But if I hit the Play button there is just a "clunk" noise and then nothing happens - the tape is not driving. Any ideas?
Probably capstan motor is K.O. or capstan belt if it is not direct driven.
But if you are some lucky it will be the reed switch or the relay that connects the motor.
