I have an Elura 90. The cassette door opens but

When ejecting the tape you must hold the eject switch down for a full second. There are two stages to the eject process just as there are with the insertion of a videocassette. Hold the button in position long enough to hear the motor mechanism start.

meny things will keep unit from coming on
1 battery holder clips bad/missing
2 fuse/resittor open
3 bad volume control switch
4 13.8v jack on side of unit bad/unsoldered from pcb

look at side power jack first is it loose
look at battery clips are they ok
can you hear the power switch clik on turn on
with back cover off find a ground put -6 volt on it and then find the power switch apply +6 to it and see if radio comes on.if radio comes on check that side power jack.

Washer won't start

Open the control panel and check the door switch, mostly it's loose. You should hear click sound when the door is close if the switch is in working condition. Otherwise bend the contact metal a bit until it makes contact. Hope this helps.

either it has moisture in it (let it dry), or the dew sensor is bad and needs to be replaced.
