Ok, you tape machine heads. I need your help on this one.
I bought this AT-RMX64 ultra-cool 4-track deck several months ago. It had an issue where it was very sluggish on FF and RW. I thought I fixed this by sanding a little rubber wheel that was hardened and therefore not gripping well when it was supposed to. (Forgive me, I don't know what it's called.)
However, last night, RW abruptly stopped working, and the transport got really loud all of the sudden during any operation (play, record, FF, etc.). RW is the only transport function not working. Everything else does, but the transport is really noisy (kind of clicky).
Here's a video so you can see/hear it in action.

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
