Cassette Player tight tape message

I have xm radio and I have recently ran into a problem with using the cassette player. When I insert the tape to play the xm through this it will eject the tape and say tight tape. Is there any way to get this to stop so I can get the better sound for my xm radio. the manual states that I turn off the radio hold in the tape/cd button and then press the eject button. This does not work. I also have tried other tapes and get the same message as well as winding the tape.

No, there isn't. The only way I know to remove a cassette when the 'Eject' function doesn't operate, is to remove the audio unit & disassemble it to the point you can access & manually turn the gear(s) of the 'eject' mechanism. In the process, you could possibly discover where/what the problem is and fix it.

probably the belt for the pullys inside are worn, if you can get replacement ones they are easy to fit, just open the case and slip the old one off and new one on.(may have to remove an internal cover also)

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.

Tape cassette player doesn't play cassettes


Sounds like the little rubber band that drives the pinch roller has broken and/or jumped off its pulleys. Simple fix, but you will have to take it out and take the upper cover off to get to it.

1999 Honda Accord Cassette Player Problem


Cleaning the Radio may fix it but what it sounds like is there is a lever inside that got jammed and you have to take the player apart to get it to work again.. Cheaper to get a new one

I have a 2004 Chevy Impala and I have a tape that I bought that connects to my phone through a wire so I can listen to the songs on my phone. However, recently everytime I place a tape into the the slot,...


Your "tape" is a cassette adapter. It is designed to be inserted in one of two ways depending upon whether your radio loads cassettes the long way or the short way...BUT you have to insert the wire into the appropriate slot of the adapter so it will not bind as it is inserted into the radio. You can actually damage the wire if you do not do this. Your problem may be caused by interference between the wire and the player mmechanism, causing it to eject

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.

1995 Saab 900S Left speaker doesn't work when using tape player


sounds like the cassette adapter has a bad channel, or didn't fully seat into place. Try removing and re inserting, to play the other side of the adapter if the wires will allow it. Then auto reverse the cassette deck to allow a different portion of the cassette head to be used for the signal. Those cassette adapters are poor quality, and put alot of time on the mech.
