When I push the eject button and raise the cover the tape will not eject. The battery is fully charged. I can rewind and play what was recorded on the tape, but the now it is full and I can't change tapes.
The main chassis has a problem with it its very easy for them to break when that happens it needs to be replaced sorry if you need the tape i can post back how to get it out you would need to take it apart but its easy

Yes i had the same problem ... 1.Put the cassette as far as it
allows... and move the cassette left and right slightly twisting , and
you will activate the mechanism 2.SOON the mechanism gets fully out immediately!!!! remove the battery 3.CLEAN contacts (I'm looking right now on the internet to find where the hell sensors-contacts are) 4.PREY that it works :-)
I had the same problem with my camcorder just awhile ago. This can reflect a low battery. Try plugging in the camcorder for a couple of hours without using it. Then try recording or playing back the tape with it plugged in. Unplug it and check again. If this does not work you may have to replace the tape head.
It does sound as if your battery is giving up the ghost. How long have you had it? If it's an older type is it a NICAD. If it is perhaps it's built up a memory. Fully discharging and fully recharging 3 or 4 times can sometimes give it more life but if it's geting a bit old maybe a new one is in order.
Have you tried using the power supply and bypass the batteries altogether? See if the same fault occurs.
The halting rewind could be caused by a slipping clutch or slipping belt, Maybe it's time for a service. But tie the rewind problem to the battery going flat it sure sounds like a dying battery to me.
By the way, the charger light isn't saying the battery is good and fully charged, it's merely saying it can't charge the battery any more when the light changes color or goes out or whatever indicates a full charge.
