When a tape won't eject, the problem can be caused by several things. The most common problem is that the belt that operates the eject mechanism is slipping and not allowing it to eject the tape. This can be fixed by either using a re-grip solution on the belt or have the belt replaced. Belts are inexpensive but sometimes difficult to get to. Most of the repair expense will be in the labor. Unplug the unit and take the cover off. Hopefully there will be enough clearance so you can get to the tape. Try to find the motor and belt that is responsible for operating the eject mechanism. The motor will look like a shiny cylinder, about the diameter of a quarter and will have a plastic pulley attched to the shaft. You can rotate the pulley and belt with your fingers and manually eject the tape. If the tape is around the spindles and video head, you will need to manually move the mechansim that retracts the spindles and returns the tape to the cartridge. While you may be successful in getting the tape out, you need to find out what caused the problem in the first place. Putting in another tape will most like become stuck again unless the problem is identified and resolved. Also look for a broken spring or cracked gear (missing teeth) in the eject mechanism. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance Good luck! - Jim

This unit needs to have the "idler" changed as well as the belts. Over time, the internal rubber parts get hard ans slippery. There are safety checks inside that will stop the unit when problems are detected. With a slipppery idler assembly, the tape does not get wound into the cassette after passing the heads. Rather than have the tape collect inside and be destroyed, the unit stops. This is a relatively simple repair that any shop should be able to perform. Expect a parts cost in the $35 range. In my opinion, this unit is worth the repair as it will continue to provide service to you for years to come. New replacement units tend to last only a year or two.

this sounds like a cleaning and tape carriage alignment is needed, that not too hard to do if you tinker.Service on this is not too much at electronic or tv repair
