Question about Audio Players & Recorders
It's hard to provide advice without knowing make / model number. Many manufacturers have back issues of owners manuals on their websites - if not a Google search will often trawl one up
Lots of manufacturers used to put 'soft touch' buttons on cassette players - they don't actually push in (just wobble a bit) but work nonetheless. From your description it sounds like the drive belt has broken - alternatively it could be some worn cogs in the motor system, which might explain the clicking sound. Many years ago I had an AIWA tape deck that made a loud clicking when the tape counter got to 9999. Pressing the counter reset used to clear it.
You should be able to connect a CD or DVD player to it using the auxiliary sockets on the rear panel (assuming it has some). Any tape/ aux inputs should be the right impedance to work okay but a phono (record player) socket is unlikely to match. There will normally be a row of buttons (or perhaps a rotary dial) on the front to select input source.
