    I have a Technics M33 cassette deck, and the PLAY, FF and REW keys stay in a down position when the tape side reaches its end. It is not shutting off. Access seems pretty involved from inside the unit. I think this may be a matter of lubrication. What is involved, here, to access the dis-engaging mechanism? Will the service manual help?

    It could be a worn belt.
    Service manual must be helpful for sure.

    I didn't know that that mechanism was belt-operated. Thanks.
