The most common pinout is:

1: L (or mono) in
2: GND
3: L (or mono) out
4: R in
5: R out

But some manufacturers reversed the inlets and outlets, or leaved pins unconnected, or used own pinouts, for example 1 L in, 2 GND, 3 R in

At some cassette recorders inlets lives only when the mode selector set to tape position, and the record and play buttons pressed. (You are need a cassette, too, and if you don't wish to record, press the pause button, too.)

Note the DIN inlet is 300mV one and high impedance, but RCA outlets 700mV low impedance ones, so maybe you will encounting disortion of overvoltage.
