Take a set of RCA Jack cords (4 jacks) and on the tape recorders "out" jacks attach one pair and on the PMD 670's "In" Jacks attach the other pair. Set the tape a few seconds before where you want to record , set your levels to where you want them, start the recorder then start recording with the PMD.
You may need to test record a few seconds to make sure the recording is at the level you want it to be. Plug in a set of headphones to the PMD and listen in from time to time to make sure it's recording OK.
I suspect the recording problem is that the wires have broken on the back of the recording head. The heads move forward every time that a cassette is played and the wires have to bend a little. A common fault on many cassette recorders is that these wires break with constant movement. I have a machine with the same problem, but getting to the head wiring in a CP430 is far from easy.
Get the belts changed, and check a clutch inside the mech which drives the auto-stop mechanism.
It works in a way that it normally holds the auto-stop off if the spools are rotating, but when it wears, there is no srive through it to hold the auto-stop off, so the auto-stops stops, if you see what I mean.
Any good audio tech should be able to do this, if the machine otherwise works OK, it is worth doing because these are very nice and usually reliable machines.
For musical work though, the CP series are usually better, as they provide 3-heads and off-tape monitoring, with better quality and the facility to set tape bias to suit high-grade tapes.
