Your takeup spool isn't moving. Before tearing into it further try putting the cover back on the deck and power cycling it. Hit REW and then try ejecting the tape. If this works, you'll get the tape back but it's likely the deck is dying.
If not, you need to be very careful to get the tape out: You may be able to turn the wheel that moves the tape basket to gently ease it out; otherwise, there are screws on the top of the tape basket. Remove them and gently lift the tape out while carefully unthreading the tape from the tape guides around the head. There'll be two feet of exposed tape--pretend it's glass, it's delicate!
Now the tape is out and you need to thread it back in the cassette. This needs patience, but here goes:
On the front of the cassette, there's a door to protect the tape. Feel the right hand side of the cassette for a small button; hold it down to open the door and keep it open
With the other hand (or with three hands! :) ) put your hand under the right-hand tape reel under the cassette. Carefully turn it clockwise. It will make clicking noises, but it should ease the tape back into the shell.
Beyond that, the cause of the original malfunction will be a bad reel motor, which is probably not fixable, or a bad belt, which you may be able to locate through mcminone.com. You'll have to unscrew the bottom cover to investigate further.
