Hello, I see that you have received an answer to your post. You might want to take a quick look at the load belt located to the right of the cassette mechanism, sometimes this belt becomes loose due to wear and tear and slips on the motor pulley. Another problem that is common is a set of gears located in the middle of the mechanism(drive clutch assembly) this assembly also begins to loosen due to wear and it does not move the reels(pick up and supply) thus pulling the tape out of the cassette housing and triggering the movement detectors inside the mechanism. Replacing the belt seems to be the best option, the clutch assembly requires a bit more skill but if you are not sure there should be a qualified tech in your area that could help you with that. Hope I was able to help.

I'm afraid you are dealing with a weakened Laser on the unit. The cost vs. benefit ratio of fixing this unit is not worthwhile.
You will find that there are newer versions of this device on the market less expensive than what you paid for the unit you have now.

That particular unit is very sensitive to scratched or dirty disks. Remove the disk and make sure there are no finger prints, peanut butter & jelly, or popcorn butter stains on the back side. If there is, gently wash the disk under warm water with a DROP of mild dish detergent, being careful not to scratch the surface. Rinse the disk well and dry with a soft, lint free cloth (like an old cotton t-shirt) again being careful to avoid scratching the disk. Replace the disk and play.
If the disk is scratched, there is little hope of fixing the scratch so the unit can read it.....

You`ll find the error codes in the service manual, But I don`t think this will help you, it sounds like you have a compatability problem. Are you not better connecting your turntable up to your PC?? You can purchase these really cheaply out of ASDA and other good retailers now which will plug directly into the USB port. You`ll have no problems then, I promise, I`ve done it. Ian
Has it actually wrote to the disc and have you finalized the disc?? Does the disc look like it`s been wrote to, you can usually see the recorded section of the disc but if it`s not been finalized, It`ll never play on a normal CD player. A CD player requires the TOC (Table Of Contents) in the centre of the disc, if this is missing, the CD will just give up and say disc error or something similar. Ian
hope this helps,thank you
