Been there. Done that. If there is a wire attached to the adapter for connection of the iPod, that most likely is jamming the adapter and preventing ejection. You need a non-metallic tool such as an ice cream stick (not a screwdriver!). While pressing the EJECT button repeatedly, GENTLY pry the adapter up to pop it out. When the operation is over and the patient is recovering, examine the removed adapter. You probably will find that the wire has popped out of its groove and may even have lost some insulation so that will have to be repaired.

The adapter is probably stuck by a protrusion from the adapter. Try gently flexing it up and down as you push/pull it out.

I was told it didn't have one but my husband did find it. You have to remove the mud guard located under the radiator and it will be on the drivers side of the radiator.

SOURCE: phillips cassette adapter ploblems

take the adptor apart, lube the gears and put them back. Test by using your finger to turn the two "holes" on the tape in both direction and see if it works. If they do, then you are probably good to go. When you insert the tape, you can gently apply some pressure downward to the tape if you have space to do so. It works tat way for my 1988 toyota camry with stock stereo. Good luck!

SOURCE: Where is the antenna in the ford taurus 2000 tape

Do you see a Spot where the Antenna Is suppose to be? Is it By the trunk?

Power antenna?

If you look in the trunk ,on the side that the antenna is on,you probably have a interior fabric trim panel hiding the lower end of the antenna mount. Remove the panel so you can see the antenna mount.

There is also a cable that runs to you're deck which could have been sliced/ pinched, disconnected and if so, All you would here is static.

Mytape deck is stuck and i cant put a cassette in it. How do i fix it?


Getting that radio out of the dash is a chore. Taking the radio itself apart is worse. Have a shop give you an estimate.

Cassette wont stay in radio ,late 90's ford taurus


Something foreign object could be stuck inside the unit, look inside to see if anything is obstructing the mechanism. Might have to replace unit with a better one from an auto recycling yard.

I want to connect an mp3 player but i only have a cd player, is there a line-in jack somewhere in the car or behind the stereo


No jack on factory stereo. You'll have to use either a cassette adapter or an FM adapter; both plug into your regular mp3 line out. Cassette adapters are not as reliable but cheap and don't use power, while FM adapter requires power (from 12V or battery) and is more expensive.

Tape Deck does not recognize tape adapter. Does not eject.


Just an idea .. In the past I have removed hungry decks from my cars. A lot easier to work on / dismantle than in dash. gently remove the casing and you should find the tape deck a separate component within the whole unit.Hook up via alligater clips to battery to power up and alligater clips to a speaker lead to hear. saves a lot of stress. Usually done for chewwed up and swallowed tape. results are good, surprisingly.

Cheers !

Phillips cassette adapter ploblems


I have the same problem with my tape adapter, I have found that a radio tuner adapter is the way to go. but if you insist on using the tape make sure if you stick your finger in one sprocket hole that the other sprocket turns too, and if it is a little difficult to turn, chuck it and get you a new one.
