RE: Technics RS 1500 Rewind Problem

Is the tape on the 10" reek Ampex/Quantegy 456 by any chance?
Even if it isn't, there's a good chance that it has sticky shed syndrome and it's stopping the transport.
Try a "new" tape or if you have one, one that isn't back coated.
And like Charlie said (hey Charlie) clean the tape path.
