Question about Sony (43132) Audio Cassette (Type 1)
I bought one used with the same problem. There is a small white plastic interlock that prevents the pressing of the eject button when the tape transport is in any mode other than stop (and perhaps pause.) You can take off the cover and press the small white interlock which then allows the eject button to be depressed. With my unit the actual problem was a broken rubber drive belt. Your problem may be different. You can tell by looking if it is the belt. It is possible to buy a replacement belt (about $6 including shipping at one site.) It is also possible to replace the belt without too much disassembly. However, it is a really big pain to go through this work. I decided to give up and return the used device for a refund since I have a ten day return period.

Sony uses an integrated circuit/motor to drive the eject system on their dual cassette decks. It's VERY possible that the motor has failed.
You'll need to take the case off and dislodge the cassettes by hand and prying some levers
Then toss them . theyre not worth fixing

I have been there before! Most cassettes door releases act by a motion of a locking hinge release system .If you can see the movement when you press the release button use something that will flex but be strudy to HELP trip that mechcanial lever! BE CAREFUL & BE PATIENCE!
