Question about Aiwa Audio Players & Recorders
The auto reverse is a two part system, the heads are moved and the motors change direction. Slipping belts, broken gears, dirt in the gears can all cause this type of symptom. These are decent units and I would invest in a general overhaul to bring it back to factory spec. I have done a number of these in the past and would recommend the overhaul. Expect $10-$20 in rubber parts plus the local labor rate.

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.
