I have a Technics Tape Deck Model RS-673. The automatic-stop

Customer Question

I have a Technics Tape Deck Model RS-673. The automatic-stop system has become very sensitive so that a tape only plays for a few seconds and then automatically stops. This is nothing to do with sticky tapes - my tapes play perfectly on other tape decks.
