Cassette Tape stuck

I have a Sony TC-WR645S dual cassette tape deck with a cassette tape stuck in one of the decks (it was trying to REW when it stopped and got stuck). Every time I turn on the deck, it seems to try to FF or REW the tape for a couple of seconds, but nothing happens, and I cannot eject the tape. Is there a way to remove the tape?

Thanks! I have the same problem on my Sony TC-WR645S Stereo Cassette Deck. The cassette tape cannot be removed due to I cannot eject it. How to solve this problem? Please advise.

Thanks.

    I have Sony TC-WR565 with cassettes frozen into each compartment. I've tried hitting the pause and stop bottoms and disconnecting the power as recommended in the manual, but to no avail. I cannot eject the tapes.

The problem here is that the unit is stuck in a partial position. The "reset" by unplugging and plugging back in usually causes the unit to reset to a known position. If there is no activity (no motor sound), it will need to be opened up and reset manually. If you hear the motor running for a short period, it is attempting to reset, but the belt is most likely worn or broken. These units are relatively simple, but a bit tricky to dis-assemble. This repair should not require anything other than a belt or 2. Figure on $3-$10 for parts plus the local labor rate for the repair.

Most of the Problem with these deck is that belts wear out and that will cause your tape to be stuck in the unit.. you will need to take the unit a part to get your take back..

If you are trying to equalize the sound from one half to the other ... you cannot, unless there are separate INPUT and OUTPUT jacks on the back. Otherwise you will need a second cassette deck.

Belt replacement in a sony tc-wr645s tape deck


I have just spent half a day trying to replace the drive belts in my sony twin deck unit , in the end it still didnt work as the the old rubber belt did some damage to the unit , anyway shops like **** smith or tandy stock the drive belts , take the front of the unit away from the main case there will be a plastic casing that surrounds the belts there are at least two belts, there should only be two small screws undo these and move the plastic unit forward on the plastic mounting brackets then you will see the metal wheel and the plastic wheel that you fit the belt around , its a bit fiddly but i can do it in my sleep now even though the motor died it was a good experience
