Question about Car Audio & Video
Welcome to FixYa!
The spring that is attached to the roller that rolls the tape cartridge or the rubber (like a rubber band) that is attached to the roller from the "motor" might be worn out already. Once these two things are worn out, the motor will feel very loose and the sensor will conclude that it's either there is no tape cartridge loaded or the tape cartridge is defective. It tries to counter check by doing a reverse play, then finally ejects the tape cartridge.
Solution: Replace the spring and/or the rubber. You will need to open the player or have it serviced.
Note: Try to play tape cartridges with short playing time to make sure that the problem is not with the tape cartridges.
I hope this will help.
Thank you for using FixYa!
