Cassette wont stay in ,late 90's radio. I put it in but just keeps ejecting


The eject button is stuck (probably got some stuff splashed on it). Take the face plate off and clean/check area around this button for goo, dirt, or damage.

How do i remove a stuck cassette tape from a 1994 chevy truck player?


Does it make noise or move when you hit the eject button? If so, slide a butter knife under the exposed edge of the tape drive adaptor about an 1/8" and hit the eject button. Just a little upward pressure should help it release. It the eject button has no effect, you may need to pull the radio out, open the cover and manually turn the eject drive assembly.

I have a brand new tape adapter (for my iPod) that was working for weeks, but after I ejected it, it just keeps ejecting itself right when I try to put it back in. It will play just a tiny bit of the...


You might try flipping the adapter over the other way. If that doesn't work, you might want to try putting a cleaning tape in and clean the cassette heads. The tape player will sometimes eject a tape if it cannot read it very well. It assumes that the tape is damaged. Dirt on your heads can cause it to eject your adapter because it is having trouble reading the signal from the adapter.

Tape stuck in player - error code e13 shows


I just got a tape unstuck myself. Everytime I would hit eject it would make a clicking noise.

Here is what I did:
First I watched these videos to remove the radio.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29MTa4FLjtk&feature=channel

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqvk_PNo9Kg&feature=channel

Then I unscrewed the bottom panel of the radio.
Unscrew the brass screws holding in the cassette player portion of the radio.
Now flip the cassette player over to see your tape, etc.
When I pressed the eject button, I noticed a little motor with a worm gear would move a a gear which moved several other gears until it eventually moved a black gear which has a little post that moves the metal arm which moves back when pushing in a tape and moves forward when ejecting a tape. But I would get a clicking sound which seemed to be due to one gear trying to move a stuck gear.
I forgot the exact details of how I managed to get the tape out, but when I did get it out I noticed when I turned on the radio, it would act like it was trying to play a tape. But when it found out it couldn't, it would try to eject but would fail once again with the gear clicking sound.
I think I tried moving the black post on the black gear that moves the arm that pushes the tape out. Eventually I got to the point where the arm was pushed forward like it should be when a tape is ejected. At that point I was able to insert and eject a tape without any problems.

Have a cassette stuck in my 98 Buick Century Custom


sometime you can get luck by taking out the tape player and there will be a small hole somewhere on the player that you can stick a paper clip through to release the tape player. Otherwise gnetly stick a screwdriver under the tape to see if you can get it to release. no guarntees on that last one
