Question about Thomson Televison & Video
Hi, Each time something like this happens it is usually something unique and not a common problem. It could be that your tape has wrapped itself around the capstans or guide rollers and could be binding the unit up. The eject feature may have failed also. I would suggest you take the cover off and I beleive you said you already did that, so that you can see the cassette and the carriage. try pushing down on the carriage after you push eject and see if starts to move. Sometimes they just get unseated and the unit does no know where the carriage is. You can also try wiggling and even slightly prying on the carriage while attempting to eject to see if it moves any and it might free itself. Sometimes a cassette will not open fully to expose the tape and hang up on the carriage. Take a flashlight and look around inside to see if the tape has come out of the casset and gotten wraped up in the machine, this will happen when the machine gets old and out of alignment.
Try these and let me know how it is progressing.

You have to cut off the tape part that got sticked with the durm motor first. Anyway, the casette tape you have inserted now is useless. Cut the two ends of the tape and unroll it off from the drume motor and maked drum motor free to turn. Do it very carefully without damageing the drum motor. Now switch ON the VCR, and wait for just 30 or 40 seconds. The loading arms will unload first and after it you must unplug the VCR. The replug it, now you can eject the casette trapped inside. OK.

the cassette is stuck in this the mechanism. It can be manually remove.
Turn off the player and remove plug from the wall. Get a Philip screw driver, disassemble the player's cover in order to gain access to the internal part of the VCR.
Check the side of the mechanism, you will see a plastic. The plastic lifts up the cassette from the mechanism, so lift up the plastic and the cassette should come out.
Study the mechanism very well, and you will see where to lift the plastic and cassette should come out.
Let me know if you need more help.
