Got to love the factory stereo. I had this problem with my 1999 Taurus. I had to remove the stereo (use a pair of wire coat hanger pieces bent into a U shape and slide them into the holes on either side of the panel, you'll feel a click when you've aligned them correctly, then pull it out). Disconnect everything and use a set of jeweler's screwdrivers to take apart the tape player assembly. Bad news though, it sounds like the ejection action is bad. If you were planning on replacing the stereo with an after-market, now is the time to do it. You'll have better luck installing or having installed a new stereo.

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.

Can anyone tell me if there is a fuse behind the radio of a 1995 Jaguar XJ6? The radio has not worked for a long time and was wondering if it may be a fuse and would like to check. Problem is that it is...

Fuses are all located either under the bonnet or in the boot. Check the fuse map and then check all fuses that could be linked to the radio. Including 'ice head unit' fuses.

Cassette is stuck in hyundai sonata 2003. eject button doesn't work no more. you can hear the unit trying to eject whenever i try to start the car or push the eject button.

The only way to get the cassette out is to take the radio out and take it apart. The 'eject' mechanism has malfunctioned and will not allow you to remove the cassette normally.... SORRY!

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.

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.
