Cassette tape has jammed inside while playing, and the cassette door will not open...suggestions of how to open the door - without dismantling / destroying the unit - much appreciated. Thanks.

This is a messy situation - I've had a few. The best thing to do really is take it to a repairers where they will be able to retrieve your cassette without damage to it or the deck.

Cassette deck will not open

It could be three things: 1) This can occur for when the image reading head of the camera is dirty and dusty, and the rubber rollers that drive the tape get contaminated as well. Either can result in the tape itself becoming caught on a rubber roller, (it wraps around the roller 10 or so times because the roller is driven by a motor) until the tape rolls expand the rollers outer diameter until it jams, and then jams the opening lever, or mechanism.
Fixing is difficult, as access to the (usually 2) screws that connect the cassette holder to the opening mechanism may only be accessible when the door is open. Look under stickers or plugs on the front of the door, and if the screws are there, carefully remove the door and unwind the jammed tape. Your cassette will play again after you clean the rollers and heads with a suitable cleaning kit from the supplier, but there will be image damage when the crumpled part of the tape gets played.
Be aware that forcing the door will usually snap the tape
which would then require re-splicing back together, and
it can also damage the heads and roller, but sometimes sacrificing the tape and taking this risk may be the only option.
Possibility 2) The internal 'door release clip' may have bent, broken or snapped a spring. Try toggling the 'open' button (if it is a mechanical buttonl) whilst gently prising open the cassette door with a thin knife. 3) If all buttons are electronic press buttons, try fresh batteries.
Failing all the above, consider a full service from your service depot or store.

Jvc rv-b99 cassette door jammed

You need to take the unit apart. If you pull hard to open the door, you`ll break the plastic connector that moves the head up and down.

  1. I'm having the exact same problem. It wont accept the cassette...only half way then errors. It will close fully without a cassette as well. hmmmmm
Comment by Guest, posted on Apr 02, 2008 Load cassette, turn it on, then message says re-load cassette. Door to cassette compartment only works half way. After fiddling with power, can get the cassette door to open and close all the way, but not with cassette. Tried several brands of cassettes, no joy.

Cassette Jam

The most frequent cause of this type situation is not having a power source attached, or a depleted battery pack. Once the power source is available, some models require manually unlatching and opening the cassette compartment cover. When the cover is fully open, the videocassette will eject automatically. Please try the following procedures. 1. Attach the power source to the camcorder correctly or use a fully-charged battery pack. 2. Fully-open the cassette compartment cover until it stops while sliding and holding the OPEN/EJECT switch. The videocassette will eject automatically after a few seconds. If the videocassette still will not eject, seek assistance from a Canon Service Facility.
