    I had something similar happen to my sony TC-WE405 tonight, very annoying. Tape wouldn't turn, then the door was stuck. I gently opened the door and got the tape out but now the player won't play tapes on either side. Either spins for a few seconds or rewinds but it won't play the tape and the tape gets stuck every time. If someone knows how to fix this let me know ... I'll fix it. In the meantime, I picked up another player because the repair bill will be more than the player I just bought cost. BH had some demo models for $75 dollars, but I'd like to fix my old 405 model and keep it as a spare. I'm working on a documentary film so being without a cassette player isn't really an option for me.

How do I get this device to play and record again? I often clean the heads.


if one reuses the tape often, ive found that the tape stretches and no longer covers the entire record path (or play path) , i still have a few cassette and reel to reel decks that I still use , and since the tapes are hard to find now I keep reusing the tapes more and more 4 the same thing , I guess its been like in the past year ive seen this tape stretching thing happen now

Fisher dual cassette player recorder doors wont open


The eject mechanisms may have simply aged to a point where they no longer work. There could be dried out lubricant or a failed mechanical part.

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.

Sony Dual-Deck Cassette Player/Recorder, doors won't close


Are both sides not staying shut? If it's only one side, look to see if the latch is broken. You should see an arm move when you press down the eject button - while the door is open, press the eject button and see where the arm moves. You should see a hook that catches the door and keeps it closed. It could be broken, or just jammed. Look at the other side of the deck and see it it looks like it's working the same. Unjam the latch arm if it's stuck, or replace it if it's broken.

Door won't open


It might be a model that has a special IC that allows the door to open and close.

You'll need to take the case off.

try hifiengine.com...that site may have the service manual.
