Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

The casset player keeps reversing the tape. It reverses for a short time and the ejects the tape cartridge. I use the player with my satellite radio to axcess the audio system thru the tape deck. Out of the blue it started reversing. The player does it with a regular music casset as well. I tried cleaning with a headcleaner but it reverses as well.

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!
Keep me posted.

Have unit hooked up, but cannot get the vhs casset tape e to remain in player, keeps ejecting.


Typically a VHS tape has a button on the underside that unlocks when pressed inside the VHS player. The wheels unlock and move the tape in the VHS. If this doesn’t happen, the tape will eject.

1990 lexus ls400 cassette player will not read or play my cassetes. i put in my cassettes but my front tape flap doesn't close and it automatically switches back to the radio.


The player has to seize the cassette as it is inserted and seat it in the correct position to be played. Sometimes the manual eject linkage becomes defective or misadjusted, preventing the cassette from seating correctly. The eject button may depress fully without causing ejection or it may depress but not cause ejection.

2000 Buick Century. Put in a replacement radio/cd/casset player. Radio works, clock works, but CD and casset do not. The message comes up E 13. What does this e code mean?


if its a radio shack radio, it means E13 means "Tape Communication Error". It is caused by the
microprocessor reading speed pulses from the tape deck either too fast, most other makes mean about the same thing, normally a stuck tape will cause this code to show up, either that or the drive gear that loads and unloads the tape is broken, cracked, or jammed

The VCR component used to work fine, but now the video is totally snowy (the sound is fine). In the past, I have solved this problem with other VCR's by cleaning them with a head cleaning cassete. ...


Careful cleaning of the VCR tape head with alcohol and a soft cloth (q-tips sometimes leave fuzz behind) may help, but you could have a problem in the circuit that switches from VCR to Tuner.

My 1995 bmw 318i won't eject a tape and the tape keeps changing from side 1 to side 2 and won't stop. I don't have any music in my car now since the only way to change it to radio is to eject the tape


Just a thought. try pushing the eject button holding it down & with a small pair of pliers carefully lift the tape & pull it out. Tape player heads could be dirty, eject button sticking or faulty or the player is done its time. Good luck

Casstte Player- '94 ford


I think you are saying you are using a cassette adapter to play the external iPod/PSP etc. and I presume the cassette plays regular tapes OK. The auto-reverse cassette player thinks the 'tape' is over, so reverses then ejects. You can try putting in a regular tape, change sides then eject. Try the adapter again. Hopefully the adapter will work in 'one' direction.

Cassette player ate a tape and will not eject it out.


Not really.
Remove the two small bolts under the front edge of the seat, open the fuel door and release the two levers on each side to release the hood. Remove the two black filler panels below the handlebars. Lift up on the center hood, disconnect the plugs and antenna from the front of the radio system. Remove the ground wire from the radio mountng screw. You should be able to remove the fairing hood completely. Take the whole thing to a radio repair shop.
Installation (of course) is the reverse. Be sure the plugs are inserted completely in the radio.

Canon ZR60 Mini DV Digital, remove the cassete message


This is a tape transport problem and is expensive to fix. Unless you know a cheap tech, it's time for a new one. Be patient loading and unloading tapes. This is usually what causes this problem. The Yellow warning sticker is REALLY important. Another important item is to always use the same brand of tape because switching tapes causes a gummy build-up the makes tapes get caught in the machine.
