Door won't open

My Sony cassette deck TC-WE605S is a dual deck. The door with a cassette inside will not open or play. It's the deck on the right that can play or record.

Re: Door won't open

It might be a model that has a special IC that allows the door to open and close.

You'll need to take the case off.

try site may have the service manual.

Sony TC-WR690 doors will not open to remove the cassette.

If you remove the cover after unplugging the AC, you will see that when you push the eject button that on the back side the putton is held back by a white plastic piece. Push down the white plastic piece as you press the eject button. The door will open and the tape will release. I jsut did this today on my Sony TC WR 670 dual tape player. Both sides were blocked. I noticed that both fuses on the board were also blown. New fuses didn't solve the problem. May be that the transformer is out?

I have a duel cassette player sony model # TC-WR 565. The doors will not open and both casettes cannot be removed even after prying the door open.

Mine did that - you will have to patiently keep pressing the clear / stop / pause / etc and even power cycle a few (or many) times and finally you will hear the mechanism release the cassette. Once you hear that - you will be able to eject the cassette. After that go replace the belts.

you can not fix it without tearing it apart. if you do take it apart, try to get the front panel off. Hit the eject button and look for a lever that is stuck.

I can't eject the cassettes from the deck - both seem to be stuck. How do I fix this problem?

only one way. I did this before. take your fingernails, stick them in the top of the door, and pull. want to use it again, put tape to hold door close.

Sony WE605S won't play in back direction any more

if the square belt kinda serpentines in and around a couple pulleys (or did originally) then it did not get put back on correctly. try to think of another way it could be threaded through the pulleys.
