It is possible that your load/unload mechanism,has become damaged, or that the belt is off. You may try any of the manual load/unload first to see if this makes a difference.

"1. Disconnect the AC plug.

2. Remove the Top Case and Front Assembly.

3. Make sure that the Moving guide preparations are in the Eject Position.

4. Turn the LDG Belt in the appropriate direction shown in Fig. M1 until the Moving guide preparations come to the Eject Position. Stop turning when the preparations begin clicking or can not be moved further. However, the tape will be left wound around the cylinder.

5. Turn the LDG Belt in the appropriate direction continuously, and the cassette tape will be ejected. Allow a minute or two to complete this task.

B. Method to place the Cassette Holder in the tapeloaded position without a cassette tape

1. Disconnect the AC Plug.

2. Remove the Top Case and Front Assembly.

3. Turn the LDG Belt in the appropriate direction shown in Fig. M1. Release the locking tabs shown in Fig. M1 and continue turning the LDG Belt until the Cassette Holder comes to the tape-loaded position. Allow a minute or two to complete this task."

If that does not work, disassemble your mechanism and check the eject mechanism for alignment. Hope this helps, good luck
