If this isn't under warranty, then start by unscrewing the screws holding on the outer panel, most of them will be located at the back of the system. Make sure you have the power off before attempting any work. Once you have the outer panel off, you should be able to find the screws and parts that hold the cassette in and start disassembling them and should be able to free the tape. If you run into any problems let me know.

    Operating Our Cassette
    Player

    Background
    Our cassette player, known as a C-1, plays recordings at commercial
    speed and half commercial speed. NLS/BPH distributes its talking books
    on standard audio cassettes designed to play at half commercial speed
    and using four tracks. The NLS configuration can pack up to six hours
    of reading time onto one cassette. The C-1 side- and speed-selector
    switches enable readers to play cassettes created with the standard,
    commercial configuration as well as the NLS talking-book configuration.
    The C-1 player is shipped with a fully charged, rechargeable
    nickel-cadmium battery that will operate the player for about six hours
    after being fully charged. Simply plug the player into a standard
    household outlet to recharge it. Remember, you can always call your
    library about using the NLS/BPH player.

    Using the Standard Cassette Player
    You can operate the C-1 on its battery, or you can take the power cord from
    the recessed area in the back of the player and plug it into an electrical outlet.
    Here is a typical sequence for reading an NLS cassette talking book.


    1. Open the tape compartment door by pressing the eject key, far right and
      marked with a raised square.

    2. Insert the cassette, label side up, with the tape edge facing out. Seat
      the cassette by pushing it back until it clicks. Press the compartment door
      down until it clicks.

    3. Press and lock down the play key (green with a raised circle) to start
      the player. Adjust the volume slide switch (nearest the front edge of the
      player).

    4. Stop the player at any point by pressing the red key with a raised "x",
      first on the left.

    5. To review the cassette soundtrack, press rewind, the key between play and
      stop with the raised less-than sign, or arrow head pointing left.

    6. To advance the cassette soundtrack, press fast forward, the key between
      play and eject with the raised greater-than sign, or arrow head pointing
      right.

    7. To remove a cassette from the player, make sure it is stopped. Press the
      eject key, far right with a raised square. The tape compartment door will
      snap up, and the tape will pop free of its seated position. To play the
      next side, turn the tape over (print/braille label down), reinsert, seat
      in the door, and press the door shut. Then press the start key. After reading
      sides 1 and 2, rock the side selector switch to the right to listen to sides
      3 and 4.


    Tips
    Switches and Buttons
    Speed, volume, tone and side-selector switches are on the right of the player.
    Begin at the top of these controls, in the middle of the player as you face
    it, and you will find the following:


    Variable Speed Control
    Used to slow down or speed up the reading of the book. The voice
    of the narrator becomes distorted as the playback speed is changed.

    Speed
    A different sort of speed switch is just under the variable
    speed control. This is the speed switch that is used to match the speed of the
    player with the recording speed on the cassette. It is a rocker switch. Press,
    or rock it down, to the left (15/16) for our talking books. Press, or rock it
    down, to the right for commercial cassettes.

    Side-Selector Switch
    Another rocker switch, the side-selector switch enables readers
    to listen to both commercial and talking-book cassettes. Here are the things
    you should know about talking-book cassettes before you use the side-selector
    switch:


    • Talking-book cassettes will appear to be oddly numbered because of the
      four-side (or, four-track) system. The first side of the first cassette
      will be 1. The first side of the next cassette will be 5. Then, 9 and so
      on.

    • Turn the cassette over after each side.

    • When starting with side 1, push the side selector switch down to the left,
      marked 1-2. Do not change the switch to listen to side
      2.
      Push the side-selector switch down to the right for sides 3 and
      4. It is important to be methodical about the use of the side switch, or
      you may find yourself skipping whole segments of the book.

    • As guidance, the narrator will provide instructions at the end of each
      side.

    Tone Control
    This slider switch raises (to the right) or lowers (to the left)
    the pitch of the narrator's voice.

    Volume control
    The volume control is also a slider. Louder to the right, softer
    to the left.

    Battery Maintenance
    To maintain battery life, the player should be played frequently unplugged,
    on battery. After several hours, up to six or until the battery fails, plug
    the player back into an electrical outlet to charge the battery. The player
    will operate, plugged in, while the battery recharges.

    Do not remove the battery. As a nickel-cadmium product,
    it is toxic if not disposed of properly. If you suspect the player will not
    work because of battery problems, call the library serving you. They will arrange
    for a replacement player.

Take the top off of the deck, as you look at the #2 deck from in front of it you will need to work with the right side. After the top is off, look at the deck where there are 2 flywheels. The flywheels are the wheels with the belt around them and they are the big one's right next to each other. Most tape decks have 2 flywheels, if it has auto-reverse it will have 2 flywheels. You will need to rotate the flywheel on the right side of the deck (when looking at it from the front). While rotating the flywheel (counter-clockwise if looking from the front, clock-wise if looking from the back) you need to manipulate the solenoid. The solenoid has a metal plunger coming out of it and that is what you need to either press in or pull out just a little. That will engage the head unit with the gears and while rotating the flywheel you will notice that it is engaging from the feel of it. Keep rotating the flywheel and each time you notice it engage the head assembly try to push the eject button. If it doesn't open the first time, manipulate the solenoid again. Sometimes it may take 3 or 4 times, sometimes it only takes one time, it just depends on what part of the cycle the gears are when you start. Each time you manipulate the solenoid it goes to another function of the tape deck. You need it to be in the position it would be in if there is no tape in the unit. You should do this with the power cord un-plugged for your own safety. You do not want to shock yourself.

If you get it in the proper postion and the door only opens a small amount and the tape is still stuck, you probably have tape from the cassette wrapped around the capstan and will be much more difficult to remove without damaging the head assembly. If you find yourself in this position, stop there and let me know. I will give you further instructions so you do not damage the head assembly or the capstan, but the tape would pretty much be history.

I hope this helps, and if so, please rate this solution.

    Is this a bookshelf stereo with the tape decks on the bottom? If so, the flywheel you need to turn is the closest one to the outer edge of the unit, on the right side while facing it. Turn the flywheel with your finger and manipulate the solenoid with a small screwdriver or your finger it you can reach it. It only need to be moved a very small amount. If you force it open you risk breaking the head assembly and the capstan.

To remove tape, insert proper tool under cassette door and carefully spread brass or plastic slotted door brackets just enough to release it from two opposing pins on the cassette holder. Hinge door away from camcorder and remove it completely at the pivot point.

    In that case your best bet is to have a professional service it if you care about the unit that much. My recommendation would be replacement. Tapes are for the most part obsolete. If you need any further assistance finding a repair facility or any other questions on the issue let me know.
    Thanks,

    Yes ok if you can see my other posting Go ahead and inplug it from the wall or if the back of the reeciver it needs to be all shut down wait a minute and plug it backinto the wall . This should eject it
    Also try and hold down the eject button and while you plug it back in the wallthis may help too

    There are no other reason if the Awia will not eject I looked
    and the portable stereo has the push tabe style buttons
    it may possible that the are sticking or the tape as started
    to come onwound. The best advise would be TRY to turn the
    reciever upside down and see if this helps Eject or if you can pry open

    I have looked at this model and the portable stereo is
    very small. The chances that there is a tape in it and the
    it just sounds like the tape is jammed in wrong. Forcing out
    will break the tape and the door. There should be two C-clips
    on the bottom of the door. One on each side and from there
    you are going to pop off those two Metal clips. The are holding the door on to the stereo

Car casette player won't accept cassettes. I put a cassette in and it spits it right back out.


Your casette player must have something lodged in it that's why it spits the casette tape back out. If you are able to, try dislodging the player from your dashboard. Shake it and if there's something noisy inside, chances are that's your culprit. Try to get it out by shaking the player while keeping the casette tape door open - like getting coins from a piggy bank. :)

Hope this helps!

3). Pull the head if the tape from the left reel.
4). cut-off the damaged edge, and attached a peice of sctoth tape to the shining side of the tape, and leave about 1/2 inches of scotch tape beyond the head of the recording tape.
5). trim the sctoch tape using single edge of the sctoch tape razor or X-Acto knife to the same width as the recording tape.
6). carefully insert and tape the head of the recording tape to the right reel. and manually wind the tape till the recoding tape is flat to the front of the recoding pad.
7). carefully close the top shell, make sure not to pinch the tape. use your finguer trun the right reel, make sure the tape winds freely.
8). secured the top with screws.

I'm guessing the "black thing in side" is referring to the actual tape itself- ribbon like which can be spooled out of the tape case. If so, then your VCR may have a mechanical problem of some sort, which results in a "no tape transport" or "no tape takeup" problem. If the latter, the right reel (takeup reel) is not being driven. Older VCRs often used a small rubber rimmed drive mechanism to drive this reel. Newer VCRs (10 years old or less) pretty much use a gear drive. Something may be broken here, or perhaps the gear is stuck. This gear assembly has to swivel back and forth, from left for rewind, to right for takeup or fast-forward. Unfortunately, you can't see the gear once the tape is in the machine, at least not from the topside. Suggestion: Take the top cover of VCR off, look for this gear, and see if it swivels freely, look for broken gear teeth.

Put tape in new video cassette


TAKING A GOOD QUALITY TAPE FROM ONE CASETTE AND MOVE TO ANOTHER WITHOUT HARMING THE TAPE QUALITY: TAKE A NEW, GOOD CASETTE AND UNSCREW THE 5 SCREWS HOLDING THE TWO PARTS OF THE CASETTE TOGETHER. AT THIS POINT DO NOT OPEN THE CASETTE. TURN THE CASETTE UPSIDE DOWN (SO THAT THE SIDE WHERE THE SCREWS CAME OUT IS NOW SITTING DOWNWARDS ON A FLAT SURFACE) IF YOU OPEN THE CASETTE BEFORE TURNING IT UPSIDE DOWN, ALL KINDS OF SMALL PIECES WILL FALL OUT AND YOU WILL NOT KNOW WHERE THEY CAME FROM. NOW GENTLY SEPARATE THE TWO PARTS OF THE CASETTE AND PAY ATTENTION TO EXACTLY WHERE THE TAPE RUNS THROUGH VARIOUS SPINDLES, ETC. MAKE A SKETCH IF THIS WILL HELP YOU. GENTLY LIFT OUT THE TAPE AND REPLACE IT WITH THE TAPE THAT WAS IN THE BROKEN CASETTE. THIS IS ASSUMING THAT THE ONLY DAMAGE WAS TO THE CASETTE ITSELF AND NOT THE TAPE. REPLACE THE TOP PART OF THE CASETTE (WITH THE SCREW HOLDS STILL FACING DOWNWARDS). HOLDING THE TWO PIECES OF THE CASETTE TIGHTLY TOGETHER, TURN IT OVER AND REPLACE THE SCREWS. TRY NOT TO HANDLE THE TAPE ITSELF. I HAVE USED RIGHT FITTING SURGEON'S GLOVES WHILE DOING THIS, BUT REALLY DON'T KNOW IF THEY HELP, BUT THEY DO KEEP THE NATURAL OILS OF THE FINGERS OFF THE TAPE.
