When we restored the Univac 1532 I/O console the very first problem was that it would not advance the paper tape through the reader.
Turned out to be deteriorated rubber on the pinch roller / capstan assy.
After having the rubber replaced and realigned all was well.
We sent ours to http://www.terrysrubberrollers.com/
He did a good job.

Hi everyone,
  I purchased a DSI NC2400 paper tape reader/punch and while the punch
section works perfectly the reader has a problem. Basically, the reader
just won't start. It won't respond to a DC1 in remote mode and won't start
to read & copy a tape in local mode. When you press the read button, the
read LED lights for less than a second & goes out and the read head never
moves tape. I will revisit troubleshooting it next week but I figured I
would see if anyone had a service manual or schematic for it.  I would
gladly pay for any scanning/copying costs
