5150 deck won't stop trying to engage?

I'm sure this is something common but I never deal with decks. Any help is appreciated.

I would take the deck out and watch the tape engagement mechanism assisted by solenoids.
I don't think it is just a push and engage tape function like in many decks.
I have two 5150 and they are way hidden in the shelves with my collection.
Some kind of reset needs to be done, or changing the belts with new ones can also help.

The 5150 doesn't have a solenoid.
That is correct Eric!
They are very simple decks to work on.

I'm gonna take it apart this weekend and see what I can find. I'm sure it needs new belts and such. I'll clean that record bar like billy says and check the micro switch. If I can't fix her I might just take you up on that offer Skip! Thanks fellas.
