The cassette player suddenly stopped working. The cassette doesnt run at all. I tried to use a cassette head cleaner but couldnt as the heads dont rotate in first place and the cleaner requires cassette to run.
Radio and CD player are working though.
If anyone has solution for this please let me know.

There could be several reasons why a cassette does not play when inserted into a system, and the power light blinks within 5 seconds. Here are some possible causes and solutions:
Dirty or damaged cassette: The cassette tape itself may be dirty or damaged, preventing it from playing properly. Try cleaning the tape head and the cassette tape itself with a soft, dry cloth or a cassette cleaner. If the cassette is damaged, try playing a different cassette to see if the issue persists.
Faulty cassette player: The cassette player itself may be faulty. Try inserting a different cassette to see if the issue persists. If other cassettes also do not play, then the cassette player may need to be repaired or replaced.
Loose connections: Check that all the cables and connections between the cassette player and the amplifier or speakers are properly connected and not loose. If any connections are loose, tighten them and try playing the cassette again.
Low batteries: If the cassette player is battery-powered, check that the batteries are fully charged or replace them with new ones. Low batteries can cause the power light to blink and prevent the cassette from playing properly.
If none of the above solutions work, then there may be a more serious problem with the cassette player, and it may need to be inspected and repaired by a professional technician.
That is exactly what a typical M-Load mechanism is supposed to do. Once the VHS tape cassette is inserted, cassette housing cover will be flipped up and two arms will pull tape out of cassette housing to wrap tape around cylindrical spinning head housing that contains video heads and, if VHS HI-FI, audio heads as well. When stop or eject button is pressed, arms will retract and tape will wind back into cassette housing. What type of problem are you experiencing with unit? It may have nothing to do with M-load engaging tape around head cylinder.
First - Turn On The Tape Demagnatiser (should be a switch on it)
Second - Insert into cassette player
Third - Turn On cassette player
Fourth - TURN DOWN VOLUME ON AMPLIFIER TO MINIMUM (This is essential!)
Fifth - Press Play on cassette player
Sixth - After 10 seconds press stop on the cassette player
Seventh - Remove the cassette demagnetizer from the cassette player
Eighth - Turn off the demagnetizer and put back in it's usual storage place
AGAIN, MAKE SURE THE VOLUME IS TURN TO MINIUM WHEN USING THIS AS THE NOISES CAN DAMAGE SPEAKERS.
My radio did the same, the antenna was unplugged under the passenger dash, as for the casette, mine still doesnt work...nor did it in my last saturn so im thinking that maybe they just have defective cassette players idk
Check with a small torch, to ensure that there is no tape broken arround the pinch roller or head, if there was no tape broken away, between the pinch roller and the cassette head there is a white cassette bar, this may have become bent.
yes the rubber rollers inside your unit have become hard,,and they are slipping, and the unit detects this,, u can purchase a product called re-grip [ for rubber products and it treats the rubber in such a way to make it soft and pliable again ] the product is sold by mcm electronics and can be found online,,, treat the surfaces of the rubber rollers in your unit and it should preform to original specs....any further help please email me at [email protected] hope this helps you
