Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders
Hi I have an old fisher stereo system with a double cassette unit. For some reason the doors won't open when i hit the eject button. There is no tape in there and it was working fine. I just rolled the cabinet to a different location and now everything else works except for the cassette unit? Could it have locked itself or something?
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.

Some dual decks use a common drive belt. It may have become too slack (due to age) to drive mechanism. I am sure its time to change all belts in both decks. This will solve the problem

SOURCE: Cassette Tape stuck
The problem here is that the unit is stuck in a partial position. The "reset" by unplugging and plugging back in usually causes the unit to reset to a known position. If there is no activity (no motor sound), it will need to be opened up and reset manually. If you hear the motor running for a short period, it is attempting to reset, but the belt is most likely worn or broken. These units are relatively simple, but a bit tricky to dis-assemble. This repair should not require anything other than a belt or 2. Figure on $3-$10 for parts plus the local labor rate for the repair.
