Tape deck won't eject tape

With tape access door opened properly, tape deck won't eject tape (with power on or off). I can hear it trying, but without success. Suggestions?

    Thanks. I should have pointed out that there is no tape in the deck. It just won't open. It tries, but stops, then beeps, indicating a problem. Other suggestion?

Put the power switch in the off position and close the tape door. Pull the battery off. Pull the power cord off. Now plug the power cord in. Wait... Now unplug the power cord. Now plug the power cord in again, wait a sec, and open the eject door. Worked everytime for me. This was the only way I could get mine to fully eject. It won't load a tape to save its life. Its dead to me.. along with all Canon **** devices. Good luck!

The tape might be wrapped around the head or the capstan. The mechanism is delicate so you risk more damage by trying yourself - check with some of the repair shops on the Fixya home page for prices to remove the tape.

Pinch roller stuck in "up" position, eject button won't open door


The very first mistake is to pry a door open. That damages them. You are never to do that. The correct way to get a tape out is to open the unit up and find out why the tape is stuck and then take action to release the door in the normal way- usually it is a loose belt or defective cam motor. As to the Pinch roller there are slide plates and even some pinch rollers had lubrication on them so that may have dried leaving you with a stuck part. The normal order of business is the find out what is stuck and then take action to clean and lubricate the mechanism to return to normal function. The problem with some Pinch Rollers is that there may be a particular spot it needs to be set at. This is true if it has a guide fitted to it. Then you will need either a jig or mirror tape to be able to set it correct again. I can not give any further advice without seeing the unit but this should get you started.

JVC TD-W901 Door is Jammed, Neither Side will Play


First of all, it could be belt (or belts), it could be a cam, it could be a motor. It could be the door isn't seated properly. It could be that the lubrication has dried out. It could be you haven't cleaned the heads and such since 1989.

If you put it back together properly without a service manual it is a miracle.

Second of all, it is the wrong kind of deck to be doing what you are doing. It is just two cheap portable cassette deck mechanisms attacked electronically in one case. Get a good single cassette deck with a playback trim control, such as a Yamaha or NAD.

I have a duel cassette player sony model # TC-WR 565. The doors will not open and both casettes cannot be removed even after prying the door open.


Mine did that - you will have to patiently keep pressing the clear / stop / pause / etc and even power cycle a few (or many) times and finally you will hear the mechanism release the cassette. Once you hear that - you will be able to eject the cassette. After that go replace the belts.

When I put my tape in the camcorder and close the metal door, the tape does not go down. but when empty, the tape holder do go down.


Hi, My Sony DCR-HC32 handycam's tape mechanism is giving me some problem. It ejects and the tape deck opens up properly but after putting a tape and closing it, the tape deck does not go in. I tried with or without tape but it doesn't go in. It is still open.
Can you please suggest how it could be fixed?
Thanks,
Pramod

Cassette deck plays without cassette, makes clicking noise


The fault is that the reel drive of the deck is not picking up the tape and so to avoid the tape to entangle it rejects. Try to load a different cassete and see it this loads. If not you have a bad belt in your set. you will need to remove and change the belt. Also check for the reel drive to see if there is any slackness in taking up the reel. Since there are reel sensors that act when the reel pulse does not come on rotation of the reel, the set shifts to the other side and then ejects. Open and check this out and I am sure you can sort this out. Good day

Sony TC WR565 dual tape deck. Both doors will not


you can not fix it without tearing it apart. if you do take it apart, try to get the front panel off. Hit the eject button and look for a lever that is stuck.

Cassette deck doors wont eject


the belt that drives the mechanism is stretched and does not advance the mechanics to finish a cycle - i.e stuck in "play". Open case and manually try to rotate the capstan flywheel in the correct direction. this might free the mechanism. depending on model, you might have to leave the power on, but usually you should not apply power to unit. probably need new belt to get this unit to work again.
