It seems mechanical problem and you need to apart unit.
I would advice you to get Maintenance Manual of BVW-75 before to open unit and get help from mechanical exploded section.
Below is picture of Maintenance Manual and part of mechanical exploded view...
It is high end broadcast model and needs care in maintenance.

Digital tapes should still eject normally (they are the same size and shape) which indicates that it has jammed somewhere inside.
If you want to fix it yourself you will have to remove the cover and check the tape.
If the cassette hasn't spooled up and all the tape is inside the cassette you should be able to unscrew the carriage (the cradle that takes the tape in and down) and remove it that way.
If the tape has spooled around the heads there is a cog (can't remember the exact position of it) arranged vertically near the side of the machine that you can manually wind the spooling arms back into the cassette.

UVW-1800 error 02-694 indicates a problem with one or both reel motors. check the cables going to both motors; have seen failures related to these cables.

The probem as told on another site (sorry, can't remember to give proper credit) is that the pinch roller is not making contact with the capstan. THis is exacly what happened to my 1800 after sitting for a long time with no use. THe solution was to manually excersize the lever going to the solenoid to unstick the mechanism. Then, voila, pinch roller pinches, tape moves, UVW1800 happy again.
