And now I have a problem with a cassette playing. The cassette deck working, but make an autorevers every 3-5 sec.
What do you think, whats wrong? I have no idea. 
Look on youtube

The reversing is a symptom that the deck has sensed “end of tape” condition. As you can see, because you don’t have a cassette installed, one reel is not spinning. It is unclear if this is contributing to this because many autostop decks will stop when play is depressed without a tape in the well. Try it with a tape & recheck.

If it still does this, then you might want to look into why the deck thinks there is an “end of tape” condition.

I'm pretty sure this happens when there's too much drag on the pulleys because it replicates the drag caused by the end of the tape.
