SOURCE: I have a Sony stereo
I bought one used with the same problem. There is a small white plastic interlock that prevents the pressing of the eject button when the tape transport is in any mode other than stop (and perhaps pause.) You can take off the cover and press the small white interlock which then allows the eject button to be depressed. With my unit the actual problem was a broken rubber drive belt. Your problem may be different. You can tell by looking if it is the belt. It is possible to buy a replacement belt (about $6 including shipping at one site.) It is also possible to replace the belt without too much disassembly. However, it is a really big pain to go through this work. I decided to give up and return the used device for a refund since I have a ten day return period.

Well I can't find this model exactly but other sony dual decks seem to use a belt that is 8.2 inches in circumference. See page 88 of
you will have to match the width as close as what you have left.
or try to call Sony service

Define 'skip' in the context of your CASSETTE deck.
Poor audio is usually due to damaged media or dirty transport (heads, pinch rollers and capstan).
You can see the tape inside the cutouts of the cassette shell. It should be perfecly smooth and the edges straight. Use reflected light to evaluate it. Edge damage will affect the Left Channel most.
Dirty heads will cause loss of high frequencies first.
The transport, well, if we need to explain it to you then we KNOW it's never been cleaned.

you can not fix it without tearing it apart. if you do take it apart, try to get the front panel off. Hit the eject button and look for a lever that is stuck.
