First, since this will only run with the car on, don't worry about the battery, it should be fine since it can handle a radio always playing with the car running. Next to get it out, you should remove the plastic paneling around the deck. It should just snap off with a little prying, with any bolts located towards the bottom of the car near the floor. Then you can unbolt the radio from the car and then take it apart to carefully remove the tape. It will take some time to do this but won't be too difficult for anyone who is mechanically inclined. Let me know how this turns out.

How can I fix my 2002 Honda Civic cassette player from ejecting cassettes. I tried a cassette deck cleaner and that gets ejected the same.


The auto-eject feature is normally triggered by the tape reaching its end. This causes the tape to tighten and then activates a trip lever that starts the eject cycle. Most auto tape decks that are not auto-reverse eventually have this problem. It is not usually the deck's fault, but it is with the tapes themselves. After many plays the tapes get wound too tight on the reels and drag, causing the auto-ejection. This is especially true with the thinner, larger tapes found in the C-90 and C-120 varieties. Try taking the tapes to a regular tape player and then fast-forward them from one end to the other and them a full rewind as well to loosen the tape on the spindles and re-distribute the tension. Hopefully this will work.

Pioneer CT-W208r won't eject tape.


These dual cassette decks were throw away units in most cases. The belt inside and the grease in the cam mechanism is in bad shape and the deck can not cycle through the steps it need to so as to reach stop. Only stop mode will allow the door block to release. The tape can safely be extracted by a Technician. The deck need work. Dual cassette decks are not always worn the repair cost.

Cannot get cassette doors to eject


the motor that drives the mechanism is jammed or burnt out.if you remove the cover and turn the big metal weights driven by the motor,the unit will dock the assembly and the door should open.

Jammed cassette tape in car stereo


your cassette seems to be jammed, try removing the player open it which should reveal the trapped cassette then try to carefully remove the tape as it may have got stuck around the capstans(rubber bits) sometimes when tapes haveen't been played for a long time they tend to become loose, try to ensure that the tape is tight by using a pencil inserted into the spool and turn it until the tape tightens please take care not to over tighten. good luk

Denon Dual Cassette Deck DRW-660 will not eject either tape. I put a tape in right side, played a bit, stopped, will not eject. I put another tape in left side, closed, cannot eject. Cannot eject either....


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
