Take off the battery and plug it in to the wall, it it moves or resets then try to close it like you use to, if not make sure the out side cover is open all the way, or if cover is attached to holder try to gently giggle it or see if something is hung up inside

    it sounds like its jammed up, with out seeing it I'm not sure what to do. Their are only a few people left in todays world that still fix things, try to find a local camera shop, like a small store that just sells cameras, they sometimes fix them or could take a look at your problem and direct you from their. good luck sry i couldn't help further.

Hi, when I put a cassete in my tape deck TD-W315 the cassete runs very fast. It looks like a LP in 78 RPM? Does anybody can help me?

Check to see if the capstain roller is pressing against the capstain. Sometimes they get stuck or something has broke preventing it from pressing on the tape.
