The tape keeps falling out of the tape path on my TEAC X-7.
I think its a problem with one of the pinch rollers. If I take it off, everything runs smooth. Do I need to purchase a replacement or could it be something else?

Tape will walk off a roller that is dirty, dry and slick or getting gummy from the rubber breaking down.

If they are old I would get new ones from Tascam parts. If you can't get new ones you can have new rubber put on your old ones by Terry Witt at Terry's Rubber Rollers.

You could also have a tape tension problem or the tape itself could be bad (sticky-shed).
