My fostex personal multitrack a series won't play, fast

Customer Question
My fostex personal multitrack...

My fostex personal multitrack a series won't play, fast forward or reverse. It clicks in but won't turn

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your product?

Fostex personal multitrack a series 8track

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far?

I spooled the tape correctly, hit fast forward, the spindle snaps into place, the tape moves maybe 1/2" then stops. Like I say it won't play, or ff or move after that. the capstand does look a little rusty but I can turn it by hand...lube maybe??
