LCR-C tape recorder has a switch inside that is pushed by the mechanism whenever play or record is on.
The switch is the play/record switch. Thats a well known malfunction of this drive - normally the switch ist pushed for record und released for play.
Your problem is the grease used by the manufacturer. You marked a pusher on the drive's back side. It has a white plastic lever under it, held by a spring upon it. This lever sticks to the pusher due to the hardened and sticky grease. You need do disassemble the drive, clean the pusher in alcohol or some fat solvent. Best practice is cleanup with alcohol, then using dishwashing detergent in hot ultrasonic bath, and finally let the pusher settle a few days. After that you have to check if the lever is still moving on the pusher. Maybe you have to disassemble even the whole drive and clean out the grease.
