It sounds like a mechanical push open/close, but if it is solenoid then you will have to open it up and find out what has it jammed. my best advice is to take it to a service center and have it worked on.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

push the eject button at the same time get a nail file and insert it in the
on the right hand side of the deck it may take three hands one to push eject one to push the eject mechanism
inside the radio behind the tape
and one to help remove the tape
if that doesnt work....dont try forcing anything as the stereo WILL break..... take the stereo out of the car, so it is not connected
to the electrics, then either, gently take it apart with a screwdriver
I would suspect the belts, look for any small motors and missing belts.
You may be able to manualy turn a wheel or gear till it ejects.
if your not comfortable doing this urself with the above said porcedures... its better to take it to the dealer...
A very helpful rating is appreciated for answering Your Query
your cassette seems to be jammed, try removing the player open it which should reveal the trapped cassette then try to carefully remove the tape as it may have got stuck around the capstans(rubber bits) sometimes when tapes haveen't been played for a long time they tend to become loose, try to ensure that the tape is tight by using a pencil inserted into the spool and turn it until the tape tightens please take care not to over tighten. good luk
The more detailed the description of the problem, the better for diagnosing the root cause. Thanks.
It sounds like you have a couple of problems. I'll address them as you have them numbered above.
1. Decks typically have belts to drive the various 'reel' mechanisms. Therefore, they can slip without breaking anything inside the machine or the tape. Your first symptom leads me in that direction.
2. That it migrated is mysterious, unless Sony is using a common motor to handle both decks' reel duties.
3. This symptom may have something to do with the root cause of both sides jamming...
Do the cassette well doors come off, say, for cleaning? Could they be dislodge? If so, they may have something to do with the jamming problems in # 1 and #2 as the doors play a part in positioning the cassette and holding it in place against the reel motor cogs. How do the doors operate with NO tape inserted?
Does it take excessive force to close the door only WITH a tape? make sure the tape is fully seated before closing the door. The capstans (directly below each reel cog) have to engage through the small holes at the lower edge of the cassette. They should be straight and clean. Any dirt or oxide on them will cause problems as these are what move the tape at the precise speed necessary for good playback or recording.
My hipshot recommendation, otherwise, is to look around inside the cassette wells very carefully for any foreign matter, debris, dust bunnies.
1-pull the paper cassette out-fan the paper and adjust the cassette to the proper size of the paper.2-after you remove the cassette from the machine have a look in cassette bay with help of any light source and cofirm there is no foreign object stuck inside(pieces of paper-pins etc-after that if the problem exist apply a spray from contact cleanr with it is tube inside the bay of cassette in direction of machine rear frame.and insert the cassetee firmly many times to activate cassette switches.
i have an aiwa stereo system model no: cx- za20k ,the twin cassette deck works fine,but there is no playback from the c d player,the stereo takes 3 cd s and the player just says reading and changes to the next cd endlessly any one help please
If you haven't already done so, don't get overly forceful to avoid bending or breaking something.
Often the cassette carriage mechanism is gear driven, and by moving the gear one direction or the other will unload the tape. You may need to disassemble the machine further to gain access to the drive mechanisim.
Sometimes the carriage mech. can be entirely removed from the VCR by removing the attachment screws. Other times, these screws are made inaccessible by the tape itself. Look down on the right side of the carriage. If you do remove the carriage, mark the gear positioning first! as the gears must be positioned back exactly as they were from the manufacturer.
You might need to employ the services of a technician if things are complicated.
Firstly: do not think about forcing the cassette door!
Look inside the unit. You need to hand rotate the capstan flywheel a
bit,( a large-ish metal disc attached to the motor via a rubber drive belt.)That should release the powered deck mechanism and allow
Then buy a new drive belt , so that problem does not recurr.
