Classic Mission Impossible musing

On Mission Impossible, the classic TV series, a tape recorded is used to give background and the assignment to Mr. Phelps. At then end it says "this tape will self destruct in five seconds."

Why then does he bother turning off the tape player? (Prolly to initiate the FX but it looks dumb!) Why would he risk blowing up his hand to turn off the tape player?
