Default Mayfair Stereophonic Cassette recorder Model 2070

Does anyone have any info regarding this deck? I bought it recently and it was in a really bad condition. It required some recapping and physical servicing (two new belts and some lubrication). The volume control initially didn't work and this was traced out to a lose earth connection. Unfortunately only one of the channels works. And I found a loose wire coming off the power supply. It appears to be some form of positive, negative and ground set up. I have identified the loose wire in the pictures attached. Would anyone have the same or similar model and be able take a picture or alternatively know of an online circuit for this or a similar model and I could work out the connection based on that?

Difficult to find information on this deck.

There is a purchasable SAMS Photofact manual available from samswebsite.com both as a hardcopy and a download (not instant).

I have no personal connection to them but have ordered their manuals before.
