there is a mechanical problem in your tape deck. probably a losen rubber band. it clicks because the rubber is too lose to move the mechinal parts. so when you power off, it losen the whole machanical parts..it is very easy to replace..opend the deck and check it out..good luck

Belts are prone to harden over time, like 10 years. The belt probably broke.
If you don't feel comfortable removing the housing yourself, take it to a repair shop.

The machine has idler assemblies that provide drive to the "takeup reelbase" When this drive fails, the tape is not gathered up into the cassette, but rather wraps around on itself on the capstan spindle and pinch roller. The mechanism will not release until the tape has been extracted from about the capstan spindle. This can require all sorts of ingenuity to acheive with pout damaging or bending transport parts. The tape may not be recoverable. The deck will require an overhaul to the transport belt and idler drives to get it back to decent working order again. If you could get it to me, cost you about $75 to overhaul it If you are not in Brisbane Australia, then you may have to locate someone near to you.

I also have an MR-929. The information that you need is in the 'Stereophonic 4 track stereo''. As stereo is only two tracks, there is another 2 tracks in addition to the one you are listening to. Wind the entire reel to the empty spool, and then play that. As you have to physically turn the reel over to do so, you should then hear the other tracks (or track, if recorded in mono).
I use my 929 to play my parents recording of my family from the late 60s, which were recorded on a valve (tube) Ferguson machine, which had a green "magic eye" level indicator, which as a child I found fascinating!
