It all depends on where the squeak is coming from. Some very clean rubber parts make kind of a squeak but I don't think that is your problem if you use cartridge cleaning systems. The real answer as a 40 year plus Tape Deck Technician is to get in there and see what is causing the squeak- it may need some oil in reel table, Pinch Roller or even the Capstan Bearing. Manufacturers do not like to put oil into unit as it makes for no repairs and you will not have to buy a new one. I worked at Teac but this unit is far after my exit- I still do repairs full time on the product though. I am sure I could resolve it- I am in the Chicago are.
I'm not familliar with this device but from the ERROR it spits out you seam to have a configuration problem, since it is a TAPE wich is 44 Khz SAMPLE RATE, check the sampling rate settings it might be to high or to low
It sounds like the knob part has has lost grip on the spindle of the switch, due to age. The knob part is designed to pull off (though sometimes they have an allen screw to keep them on) for service. You could try and pull it off! However it could (due to its age) have decayed and so might break up. If you do try to pull it off, turn it to the off position and when you put it back on put the knob pointer at the off point.
However it is safe to operate at the present.
On the 8 track the fixes and myself would need to know more details. Like: does it play, can you put a tape in etc, before giving a verdict.
