Have you checked all the drive belts? Some dual decks use one drive
motor and a long belt to drive both decks.
you also should be able to remove the cover of the tape compartment off to see the deck better

i had the same problem of not opening the cassette doors and not running with my sony tc wr535. After I repaced the belts myself with new ones it did run fine! :-) An original sony(!) rubber belt set for the two decks costed me 23 euroos incl pp.

SOURCE: Cassette Tape stuck
The problem here is that the unit is stuck in a partial position. The "reset" by unplugging and plugging back in usually causes the unit to reset to a known position. If there is no activity (no motor sound), it will need to be opened up and reset manually. If you hear the motor running for a short period, it is attempting to reset, but the belt is most likely worn or broken. These units are relatively simple, but a bit tricky to dis-assemble. This repair should not require anything other than a belt or 2. Figure on $3-$10 for parts plus the local labor rate for the repair.

I have the same unit which had the same problem. It has to do with dirty contacts on each tape mechanism.
Remove the main cover and look down on each tape mechanism. You will see 4 contacts on each unit. These come in contact with the tape. Remove each unit by removing 4 holding screws.
You will now be able to spray some contact cleaner into the front of the plastic contact cover. I removed the covers on both of the second from the right contacts so that I could clean them with an abrasive. These are the main ones.
Put everything back the way it was and the tape deck should work great.
