Problem with AIWA TP-M130 micro cassette recorder can't get tape out

I have a AIWA TP-M130 micro cassette recorder that has a tape is stuck because I can't get the flap/door to open. Can you give me some suggestions? If I can't get it to open, can I just break it open and still be able to record with a broken door/flap?

Hi ya

Well Aiwa stereos are very hard to open and designs to break when opening, however some models can be opening without too much issue.

So before you try to open the item, try these if you have some switch cleaner or alcohol tape head cleaner - put a little drop onto the headphone jack and insert and move around the socket just incase there is dirt on the contacts inside, also clean the tape head too just incase of the same,

if not then its an open up, sometime the solders come loose, so with a soldering iron just warm the solders up a little this may fix it.

if this does not it may be a broken part inside the jack - they can be replaced but not easy - spares can be got from ebay from china, for about 1.00gbp

hope this helps

It can't be done. Sorry.

I assume that they won't let you buy a recorder for him. If so, have him wrote what he wants to say in a journal or notebook, or get the prison librarian to help with that.

Sanyo Stereo Cassette Recorder M7300K will not record and record button vey hard to push down

Make sure the tape you are trying to record to is not restricted (unrecordable or pre-recorded). You can look at the tabs on the top narrow band and if they are punched out the tape will not accept recorded material. (you can put scotch tape over the hole and still record but only if you are desparate!)

Check with a small torch, to ensure that there is no tape broken arround the pinch roller or head, if there was no tape broken away, between the pinch roller and the cassette head there is a white cassette bar, this may have become bent.

How to open an old cassette that doesn't have any screws?

Some bargain tapes were made with glued-together shells. They were usually sold in bulk packaging in the days of cassettes for voice recording (for students taping lectures, for instance) but weren't meant to last long. You need to break open the shell and transfer the tape into another one after you repair the problem. Use a stiff blade along the seam to open it. I use a shop knife to get the cut started, then wedge a stiff putty knife into the opening and twist. The shell splits open pretty easily once you start it.

Malfunctioning tape recorder or bad tape?

How old are the tapes? Unless the tape recorder doesn't shut off when it gets to the end of the tape, then I think the tape recorder is fine and it is probably just the tape.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.
Mac =)
