I also have a '95 ford explorer. Same problem. I took the screws out of the tape and opened up the adapter. I took out all the gears EXCEPT for the one large one in the middle two on either side. Now it works perfectly.

Try a different brand of adapter... My '02 Explorer refuses to accept Sony cassette adapters (it ejects the cassette after a minute or two). On the other hand, a cheap Phillips adapter plays flawlessly!

Inside the cassette adapter is a mechanism to apply a certain amount of "tension" to a sensor in the cassette player. If this simulated tension is too great, the cassette player will try switching to "side b" (thinking that it is the end of the tape). On some adapters, this "tension" is so great that the cassette keeps changing from side a to side b. If this occurs too often, the cassette will be ejected!

Hey,
I actually had the same problem happen to me and it still occurs every now and then. Try blowing in the end of the cassette adapter while using ur pinky finger to turn the insides of the cassette. Next, turn the volume off on the cassette insert device and insert your cassette adapter. Now turn your volume up slowly and see if this fixed the problem.
Best of luck,
Matt

I have a 99 ford Taurus and its a cassette tape adapter stuck in it please help me


Been there. Done that. If there is a wire attached to the adapter for connection of the iPod, that most likely is jamming the adapter and preventing ejection. You need a non-metallic tool such as an ice cream stick (not a screwdriver!). While pressing the EJECT button repeatedly, GENTLY pry the adapter up to pop it out. When the operation is over and the patient is recovering, examine the removed adapter. You probably will find that the wire has popped out of its groove and may even have lost some insulation so that will have to be repaired.

<p>An iPod can store hundreds of songs makes it an ideal source for music on your car. Buy an adapter is the easiest and cheapest way to connect your iPod to your car stereo system. Do you know which adapter fits you best and know how to use the first steps to expand their musical possibilities. <br /> <p><br /> <p>Tape deck <br /> <p>1. Buy an iPod adapter cassette player, if your car has a cassette player. This is one of the easiest and cheapest way to get your iPod to play music from a car radio. A cassette adapter is shaped like a tape with a wire connected to an end. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. For a cassette adapter or a store of electronic music in good standing.

This gives you more options when you're in certain areas where FM stations are vague or nonexistent. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Connect the FM transmitter for the iPod to a lighter (depending on model purchased). Turn on your car's FM radio and find a channel that is unoccupied. Adjust the transmitter to the channel number exactly the same and then to match the iPod. For example, 99.1 FM if you find a free channel in your area, the FM transmitter on 99.1 reading.

I have a brand new tape adapter (for my iPod) that was working for weeks, but after I ejected it, it just keeps ejecting itself right when I try to put it back in. It will play just a tiny bit of the...


You might try flipping the adapter over the other way. If that doesn't work, you might want to try putting a cleaning tape in and clean the cassette heads. The tape player will sometimes eject a tape if it cannot read it very well. It assumes that the tape is damaged. Dirt on your heads can cause it to eject your adapter because it is having trouble reading the signal from the adapter.

Casstte Player- '94 ford


I think you are saying you are using a cassette adapter to play the external iPod/PSP etc. and I presume the cassette plays regular tapes OK. The auto-reverse cassette player thinks the 'tape' is over, so reverses then ejects. You can try putting in a regular tape, change sides then eject. Try the adapter again. Hopefully the adapter will work in 'one' direction.
