Classic bad belt. The belt will ride up on one flywheel making it run slightly faster causing a loop under the heads. Did it on all 6 of my 1000 and 2000 decks

Subject: [ARSCLIST] TEAC X-1000R
We (the RSA) have a TEAC X-1000R giving me a bit of trouble.
When playing tape in forward direction the tape sometimes slips of the head, however, when playing the tape in reverse direction it plays just fine.
Can anyone perform a remote diagnoses?
