280D SS Problem

I have an operatonal problem with my 280D SS. When I push the play button the pinch roller will not meet the kapstan in either direction. The Kapstan moter runs. A short time before this overall problem happened the reverse playback sound was not precise, however, the forward playback was ok. Although I have not taken the machine apart, it would appears to me that the problem could be the plunger solenoid that controls the pinch wheel arm. I would appreciate any experiential insight that anyone could provide.
