It could be the rewind solenoid is jamed up or there is a switch that comes loose under the tape deck. Either way, it will need to be serviced.

The buttons on this machine are gated with a mechanical mechanism (under the buttons in the machine -= you can't see it) that acts as a "gate" to control how the buttons behave. This mechanism is probably stuck and needs to be looked at by someone with mechanical inclination - short of calling customer service for service locations. It shouldn't be that expensive to fix. Good luck.

The headset you are using is a stereo headset. This unit uses a mono headset. Look at the end of the headset. If there is 2 black rings, it is stereo. You can get a stereo to mono adapter at Radio Shack for about $2.50.

This is caused be a bad record switch. As a temporary solution, incert a blank tape, push the record switch, then stop. Repeat about 10 times. This may clean the contacts of the record/Play switch but it will probably need to be replaced.
