On turning on the power switch, there is clicking sound four to five times and both the casser decks are raised and go into pause mode. Both the casset windows also get jammed. Suggest solution to overcome this problem.

BMWRIDER Good call fellah. Just one catch, both tape and cd covers have their own lid control motor with driving cicuits. NOT connected to flywheel. Both my belts are snapped and am looking for replacements. Happy holidays. Pete2010

This model really uses a direct drive cam from the main motor to cycle the head assy. Most of the time when the heads wont move the motor , the motor drive circuit,or the cam itself is broken. If the cam is broken its a real bugger to take apart and repair as I used to do Aiwa for the factory returns in NJ when i had my shop In Long Island, NY. Man what a job that was tearing down all those really sophisticated cassette mechanisms.. good luck on your repair

Sounds like another case of a slipping belt. A belt usually runs off the flywheel and actually lifts the head assembly into the play or record mode. Due to the pressure involved it's either that belt or the main drive belt which is slipping or completely snapped. BMW

Tritronics Inc. is my parts supplier of choice. They usually have or can get any parts I need and their prices are reasonable. www.tritronicsinc.com. They are agents for just about every manufacturer and will research parts based on model no., location of part and/or part description. It sounds like you will need a new door if it is broken. I've tried glueing these lids before with limited success. Tritronics would have the service manual also which would help with disassembly. Good luck.

Tips for a great answer:
It sounds like the belt is slipping or broken which monitors the speed of the tape movement. When you play or rewind the tape, it thinks the tape has reached the end of play and shuts off. You can try a different tape to make sure the tape does not have too much tension on it. If the second tape has the same result you will need to remove the top cover of the deck to inspect the tape drive mechanism. Make sure the belts and pulleys are clean and replace any belts which have glazing or cracks. If the belt is broken you will need to replace it with a compatible belt of the same length and width.
