Ruan, A temporary fix, is to leave the right side panel off, position your latex gloved hand into the back, of the drive, turn softly, with one finger, the drive wheel, and the unit will unlock. You can now remove the tape cassette. Make sure the cassette tape is very, tight prior to installing it.. To complete a repair, takes a while for full explanation. Regards fmauka...

I see your picture of a cassette player. Guess you are referring to that. (tapes also come in reel-to-reel, and 8-track). Just push the "EJECT" button (power may need to be applied to some units for the eject button to work). The tape slot will open. Insert tape with exposed tape on the "head" side of the opening, usually the heads are on the bottom of the slot.. You can't put it in any other way and have the door close. The "door" that opens has guides for you to slide the tape into. The side you want to listen to should face you. Either manually close the tape compartment or push the close button (depending on model). If the door doesn't close, you put it in upside down. Push play and enjoy.
Hi what has happened is when you pressed play the tape head that reads the tape has come up as normal this locks the door as you cant open it when its playing but instead of the tape head releasing and going back down into start possition it has become jammed in the tape itself. You have two options turn off at mains and give it a gentle bang a couple of times this might free the tape and let the head go back to start possition its upto you how hard you tap it but doing this usually works and will allow you to get the tape out failing this then its going to be a case of stripping it down till you can get access to the tape head and be able to free it from the tape allowing door to open let me know how you get on ok and if you need further assistance
The unit may be damaged or may just need adjustment- only a tape deck technician will be able to answer the question after seeing the unit. To answer it remotely like this, is really an impossible task.
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?
you mean to record?first,you must connect the other unit (if you are using two cassette)by using rca plug or earphone plugs.insert the plugs to audio in or aux(this is the unit that will record).if the other unit doesn't have the output audio,use the earphone out instead.time to record.the recorder must be set to tape/aux,(if you are using a unit with radio setting).then,push the play and record button at the same time.don't forget to put in the blank tape ok.then push play to the unit that you want to be recorded.the square symbol is for stop.the arrows pointing left ,rewind.pointing right, forward.the big arrow pointing right is the play and the button next to it is the record button.
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 :-)
Glad to hear that you got the unit working. One thing you might want to do now that you resolved the jammed problem, to avoid future problems, is with the cassette deck open, look in to the opening and check all the metal parts for any signs of being bent or twisted, even slightly. There is a reason that the door has a spot marked "push door shut here". Pushing it anywhere else will usually bend something. It may be working now but who knows. Usually when you force the cassette mechanisms on the little camcorders you bend something and sooner or later it will come back to haunt you. Now you can open and close it so it would be an easier fix. If you find anything bent you will need to carefully straighten it. Believe me, a little time spent now will save alot of grief later. Perhaps your father-in-law would have the skills to check it and straighten any bent parts. Even if you don't find any problems you will at least have peace of mind knowing that everything is OK. Good luck.
