I'm not familiar with this unit but the frequent cause of this problem is that the record/playback head is not retracted from previous use. Frequently caused by drive belt problems - loose, broken or off track. Try running the drive with the door closed and no cassette. This seldom is a problem that the owner can fix. Professional service is recommended.

Why won't the door shut on my cassette player shut with a cassette in itwhy can't i get an answer to my question


I'm sorry, but it seems you may have a product that no one has any experience with.

But just to help in any way I can I will suggest reading your operational manual to make sure your inserting the tape correctly.

Or maybe your tape has reach the end of the roll and is automatically ejecting it?
Check that all other applicable settings are correct for insertion of a cassette tape.
Does your device allow a "recorded tape" to be played? Or does it only accept "recordable tapes" to be recorded? I do recall that cassettes have a way of being identified by a player as to whether or not it is a "recordable" or a "non-recordable" tape.
I probably wasn't the best help you could have got here on fixya, but I have exhausted my advise to you, as general as it may be.
If my advise wasn't the solution, please be patient or reword your question to attract the experts in the field of cassette recorders or music recording equipment. Different headings will be directed to the answering panels that are associated with answering those type of questions.

Good luck

I have a sony cassette deck tc fx44. If I try to insert a cassette am unable to close the door. The door closes just fine without a cassette


Sometimes the tape sensors or record sensor gets bent or out of place so the door wont shut. Look for something like that.

The doors of my technics deck RS TR575 don't open or close when I press open/close switch, it sound , but not responding. Please help me Thanks Manuel


It's a simple job for a repairer - if you can find one that will have anything to do with audio cassette technology anymore, sorry, but I'm finding that some won't.
Not knowing where you are I don't know which currency you use but if it helps, here in the UK I'd say don't spend more than £25 on this.
There are still new cassette decks made and lots of good used ones around.
I know Technics is a very good make but I was looking at superb condition Nakamichis the other week for £35 which are a far better brand.

Tape will not turn


The more detailed the description of the problem, the better for diagnosing the root cause. Thanks.

It sounds like you have a couple of problems. I'll address them as you have them numbered above.

1. Decks typically have belts to drive the various 'reel' mechanisms. Therefore, they can slip without breaking anything inside the machine or the tape. Your first symptom leads me in that direction.

2. That it migrated is mysterious, unless Sony is using a common motor to handle both decks' reel duties.

3. This symptom may have something to do with the root cause of both sides jamming...

Do the cassette well doors come off, say, for cleaning? Could they be dislodge? If so, they may have something to do with the jamming problems in # 1 and #2 as the doors play a part in positioning the cassette and holding it in place against the reel motor cogs. How do the doors operate with NO tape inserted?

Does it take excessive force to close the door only WITH a tape? make sure the tape is fully seated before closing the door. The capstans (directly below each reel cog) have to engage through the small holes at the lower edge of the cassette. They should be straight and clean. Any dirt or oxide on them will cause problems as these are what move the tape at the precise speed necessary for good playback or recording.
---

My hipshot recommendation, otherwise, is to look around inside the cassette wells very carefully for any foreign matter, debris, dust bunnies.

Do you maintain the deck as recommended?

Insuficient clearance for caset to install


There is a lock on the door mechanism. Unless the belts are good, the machine will not recycle to move the heads down far enough for the tape to be removed, so the door is interlocked to prevent damage.

Take the case off and push the door release and watch where the release lever hits a small nylon piece. You can pushit down with a pencil or screwdriver and the door will open. This white nylon piece will stay locked down if the blets are good and do not slip. They put the door latch in park allowing the tape to be inserted or removed.

Try to treat the belts with rejuvenator CaiKleen™ RBR Let them sit a while to get rejuvenated enough to not slip and the problem should be solved.
