An easy solution

New to my Op-1 obviously with a question like this: my tape is stuck in reverse. I tried numerous thing to get it back to normal. Help please!

Reverse means shift+play or pressing 5 key during playback? This happens even after initializing the tape?

I can’t record for when I press record the tape is already in reverse. If I press the shift/play/5 let’s the tape changes to the normal way and makes it’s way back to the starting point and stop? Never had this prob b4. Think I’ll crack out there instructions.
