Error 20 is "Cassette compartment motor lock" this is meaning the cassette loading mech is not accepting the tape It could be miss-aligned in it's position or one of the sensors is defective or the motor is bad

A frayed/ broken flex cable in the cassette carriage - It makes the system think you are loading a small tape, so it does not pull the reels apart so the tape just jams half way down.
$10 or so from Sony repairer.

The deck will accept a large tape but not a small one. I do not get an error code the small format just won't seat.


Most likely problem is the flat cable in the cassette housing. This cable breaks, and the sensors for large/small tapes can't tell the deck to move the reel tables to accommodate the tape.

Most likely problem when a Beta SP deck won't take the large tapes is a bad cable in the cassette housing. Replacement isn't too difficult, and the cable only costs about $20.00.
