Cassette Player Stopped Working

I put a cassette tape into the player to try and make a mixed tape from tracks on a cd. When i put the tape in the machine it started making a weird noise, so i thought i the tape in the wrong direction. I then tried the other tape deck to see if i did put the tape in the wrong way, and i didnt and that player wouldnt play either. I could not open the first tape deck, the recording side one, and had to force the door open to get the tape out. I tried again and this time the tape didnt get stuck but it still wont play or record, but it does acknowledge that a tape is in the machine by switcing to the tape mode.

In all likelihood the Drive belts have snapped. Get them replaced.

Check its belts. Replace them. Belts can be bough from most of the electronics spare part selling shops at your town. They are available in kit form, according to model number of your player.

How to record a cassette tape to a cd

Your question is posted under a "CD Shelf System" heading. If you really have one of these, the answer is "you can't". The CD player is a player only, not a recorder.

On the other hand, if what you're asking is how to transfer cassette tapes to CD using a computer, there are a couple of ways. One is to connect a cassette player (boom box, component system cassette deck, etc.) to the line-in jack of your computer's sound card. Download and install Audacity, which is free software for recording and editing sound. Then you can record the sound from your cassettes as you play them into the computer.

Another option, If you want to be fancy and spend a little money, is to buy a USB cassette deck. It automatically converts the cassette audio to digital and sends it to your computer over a USB cable. Recording software is supplied (sometimes the Audacity program mentioned before). Several companies make them. Here's one from a company called ION that some friends of mine have, and it seems to work well for them. They've been converting a lot of tapes of family members, and Audacity has been good for cleaning up tape hiss and enhancing the sound.

Either way, once you have the sound in your computer and processed to your liking, you just need to burn it to a CD using whatever burning software you have. (I use CDBurnerXP. It's free, easy to use, and does everything needed for normal CD and DVD burning.)

Loud buzzing when I insert a tape in my car's stereo

Hiya, first try a normal cassette, see if that plays OK. If so the deck is probably fine, if not then the deck is faulty (probably not serious though and just a loose wire on the head).
If the connection between the tape and MP3 is a cable, the fault is quite likely there (if bluetooth then not). I strongly suspect the cable from the previous issues also.

Best of luck

Cassette player will not work

common fault on the JVC tape decks is the belt stretch and then it does a clicking sound its trying to pick up the audio heads. changing the belt is quite hard if you have`nt done it before.
