SOURCE: aiwa cassette deck won't eject
I had this problem on an AD-S40. Turned out to be the drive belts, which had stretched, resulting in the fact that the motors couldn't drive the mechanism through it's various load cycles of opening/closing the captain roller, etc. as required to operate the mechanism. Stuck in mid-cycle, the doors would not open.
After removing the case cover, you can turn the belt driven wheels by hand to complete the cycle, so that you can eject. Then get new belts (several outfits sell belts based on length, on line). You don't need to do much to replace the belts -- after unlocking and getting the tape out, it was only a couple of screws to remove the mechanism, as a unit, and there is no need to fuse with the circuit boards and such. Easier than I expected.

The belts are probably shot in the cassette player that's 13 years old. You can probably buy another radio like it and just change out the cassette portion if you are a good electro-mechanical person.

The auto-eject feature is normally triggered by the tape reaching its end. This causes the tape to tighten and then activates a trip lever that starts the eject cycle. Most auto tape decks that are not auto-reverse eventually have this problem. It is not usually the deck's fault, but it is with the tapes themselves. After many plays the tapes get wound too tight on the reels and drag, causing the auto-ejection. This is especially true with the thinner, larger tapes found in the C-90 and C-120 varieties. Try taking the tapes to a regular tape player and then fast-forward them from one end to the other and them a full rewind as well to loosen the tape on the spindles and re-distribute the tension. Hopefully this will work.
