Question about Car Audio & Video
This looks like a mechanical defect: the grease that was supposed to lubricate the mechanism has dried out and/or was contaminated by dust and the levers carrying the tape case seize.
You will have to completely clean and grease the mechanism. Do not use paint thinner or something similar, use gasoline to wipe the dried grease - and stay away from the rubber parts.

It is quite possible that the capstan motor is the loading motor drive and if the capstan motor has failed then the section will shut off. The servo motor of the capstan would have a IC failed or maybe an hall IC that is defective which will not turn the motor.
You can look into the mechanism to confirm , check if therer is any mechnical blocks , maybe check if the capstan is jammed , if so use some oil into the spindle to release.( near the pinch roller)
If so the servo motor assembly must be changed, the problem will be to procure the part or maybe swap from a condemed set.

Strange, so it will not eject at all, is that correct? Have you tried just taking the battery out of the recorder for at least 5 minutes and making sure there is no other power source, then placing it back in and trying again?
Nothing should block the eject feature on this device besides actual hardware malfunctioning.
Please reply back to my answer here once you have tried this and let me know, I will be watching for your response.

Sometimes when a cassette gets stuck like this, it is the door that opens and closes in the front of the machine. The cassette hits the door and puts the machine into a bind and it shuts off, to keep from burning a motor or something up. Now that you have the player open, try holding the front door open while pressing the eject button.
