There is a sping ativation at the back of the drive weel, when the cassette reaches the end it tightends and clicks the cassette off, i have corrected this by opening the cassette door, holding the drive weel with your fingers tight and pressing play button and hold the button down, you should then hear a clicking sound, do this for around 10 secconds, this may correct the problem as sometime the auto stop spring can be a little tight

Fast forward, reverse the cassette and fast forward again. if the tape is too tight the current sensor will always trip out the motor.

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

Why doesn't it record?

I had a lot of problems with the blank CD's and tried a lot of blank CD's. After doing many hours research I finally found that the 'Memorex Brand Music Digital Audio" blank CD's were all I could find that would record from cassette to CD. You may find other brands that work but the key I found was the words 'Digital Audio' and many posts said the same thing. I bought mine from America from 'SimplyBestDealsOnline'. Really hope this helps. Susy.

Recording from a vhs cassette...

This dvd/vcr unit is having a problem with component failure. It is probably in the main power supply section, since the unit shuts down. This can happen in these products due to the qulaity of component use in the product runs. The components usually have 5% to 10% failure rate. Which is usually taken care of by the product warranty. Unfornately this is a common problem with big manufactuers and large production runs. You need to have the unit tested and serviced at a service center. The service center will have all the service information to repair you unit. The Magnavox Customer support telephone is 1-800-605-8453. Tell them the model number of you unit and about the problem with the unit shutting down during use. They will be able to tell how to your unit serviced. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Connect audio components for recording Cassette to CD

Try this since you do not supply model numbers. If your receiver and CD have digital audio connector (coaxil or fiber) hook the receiver output to the cd input.

If you do not, see if there is a spare set of RCA jacks for output. If not, just hook up the cd player in the cassette jacks-there is always a cassette in and out-and hook your cd player to an auxillary input or use the cd player input.

Remeber though, cassettes have inherently more noise than cd so your cds will not sound like a pre-packed cd.
