Question about Audio Players & Recorders
The tape stopped playing part way thru. Tried to open the door to remove the tape but door will not open. A mechanism attached to either a transformer or solenoid is clicking behind the tape mechanism. The tape will not play, wind or rewind. Is the problem mechanical or electrical? Is it worth fixing the deck? Have tried dismantling deck to open door to remove tape, but without dismantling the whole tape drive mechanism could not find a way of opening door. I would appreciate if you could help with this problem.
It sounds like the drive belts on the deck have broken (not allowing playing, FF or REW) and/or the tape got "eaten" meaning the tape itself has wound itself around the rollers and cannot free itself. I strongly doubt this is an electrical issue. Definately sounds mechanical.
As far as the door not opening, there's usually a hook that holds the door closed. If the unit is mostly disassembled, look near one of the sides of the door for a metal hook. It's normally spring loaded and can be moved manually. That should free the door. If your tape was eaten, it might take some gentle persuasion to unwrap it from the rollers.
