the belt looks fine though it's not loose but do you think it could still be bad?

It’s worth a try, the belt needs to drive TWO capstans, in one, the belt loops entirely around and unlikely to slip but the other one is only partially contacted. Maybe it’s slipping, it’s easy enough to change.

Ok, so I wanna ask, is it clicking continuously, or just clicks a bit and then stop?  Is there a cassette in the chamber when it does this?  If no, does the cassette icon in the display show?  The cassette present icon looks like a sideways horseshoe with an arrow next to it.  How about with no cassette in the chamber, does it still do this?  Also, I know it's hard, maybe impossible to tell with a cassette in the chamber because the window is so narrow, but do you know if the reels actually spin (to determine if the motor is working).
