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.

The eject mechanisms may have simply aged to a point where they no longer work. There could be dried out lubricant or a failed mechanical part.

The DR1o might have a Sankyo transport and they have sense fingers that become tarnished. This needs to be serviced to make the deck work. It is possible that the deck is still in play mode which blocks the eject from taking place. Unplug the unit and open it up and rotate the worm gear with a finger and the door will eventually open up but do not force things as understand the size of motor in the unit that normally turns the worm gear.

Sony tc-wr535 won't eject. Tape stuck. Won't play cassette on either deck A or B .makes noises but won't FF or play, gets stuck and wont eject. Will belt conditioner work? What do I use?


The problem, according to messages on your site, is that the belts are old and have stretched. There is a great step by step tutorial on www.Instructables.com with pictures and all. Parts are not too hard to find on search engine. Looks like less than $25 to fix.

I purchased a Nakamichi 480 tape deck from a seller on eBay. All the push buttons work OK except for the EJECT button. It will not allow the compartment to open where you insert a tape. The eBay seller...


Hi there
It is probable that the head assembly or pinch roller assemblies are not returning to their correct rest position. The arms that carry the pinch roller assemblies develop dried grease problems in the bearing/post they are mounted to that prevent their timely return and fouling the casette shell preventing eject. Check them by seeing if they are clearing the cassette shell, and are "sprung into the home position with out binding.
I have repaired scores of these decks over the years, and am happy to talk to you more about the problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

Tapes stuck in the cassette and dooes wont eject on both sides


I hate to say this but you may have wrapped the spook around the player inside. I have not had much luck opening jammed doors that result from spooled up tapes.

Tascam DA 40 DAT Machine ." Loading error "


The DAT machine needs new belts and maybe some cleaning. These fail all the time due to old belts that lose the tension that is required.
