Try rebending the plate back and restoring everything to proper condition/orientation and see what happens. Worth a shot.

if one reuses the tape often, ive found that the tape stretches and no longer covers the entire record path (or play path) , i still have a few cassette and reel to reel decks that I still use , and since the tapes are hard to find now I keep reusing the tapes more and more 4 the same thing , I guess its been like in the past year ive seen this tape stretching thing happen now

always remember source, amp, then speakers. ex: cd to eq to amp to speakers and it goes: out from cd player into eq, out from eq into amp, out from amp into speakers . hope this makes it easier for you.

I had worked on one once that was thought to only need belts- it needs a total mehanical tear down to remove the old grease- they are not worth the money it takes to do the repair job

There should be a button or switch that will select the recording deck and the dubbing deck. You put a blank tape into the recording deck and the pre-recorded one into the play deck. Pressing the record button on the dubbing deck, on some models should start the play deck running. If not press play on that deck.

It is very easy, you don't need a manual for this. The EQ line in and Line out get hooked into the record out and Tape in of one of the tape loops on the Sansui amp. Record outs go to EQ in and the EQ out goes to tape play.

Mine did the sane thing. Since I had cassettes in at the time, I noticed that neither turned and I saw an "E" on each display. Figured the belts were broken or something. Unplugged unit and removed the cover. Both belts on each side were stretched out enough so that the wheels would not spin. Each side has 1 flat belt (like a rubber band) and another that is smaller , skinnier and perhaps circular in it's diametric shape (like an o-ring). A repair kit on E-Bay is $16.00 plus shipping and that's if you know how to replace them. A better bet is to go to your local Goodwill store and look at the electronics area. I found the exact deck there 8 years ago and it worked well. It cost me $9.99

There is either a burned out transformer or more likely a broken solder joint or defective power supply part in the unit- it needs professional work.

Depend on your location and willingness to ship the unit. The cost of the repair must also be weighed in. If you don't want to put $100 into it I don't think most shops these days will want to open it up. Dual cassette deck are notorious for failure due to cheap design. Look around at all the problems. I have been fixing units for 40 years and even at Sony and Sony authorized.
I can look at it at Skywave Tape Deck Repair in Chicago area if you want. Google it.

Try pushing the eject button while pusshing the power button. Mine was doing the same and that is how I was able to eject the tape.
Good luck
