How do I get my cassette tape unstuck?

Insert a thin, flat-head screwdriver beneath the cassette tape inside the deck. Gently pry upward on the tape until it comes free from the tape deck's heads. Grasp the tape with a pair of needle-nosed pliers. Pull the cassette out of the deck.

Herein, how do you manually remove tape from a car?

Hold down the eject button, and when the tape begins to rise, slide your prying tool underneath it and lift gently. Your tape should pop the rest of the way up so you can remove it.

Additionally, why do cassette adapters eject? Insert a cleaning cassette into the tape deck to clean it. The adapter might be inadvertently ejected, because the tape deck is malfunctioning due to dirt on the heads.

Simply so, what causes a cassette tape to drag?

There are a number of causes for excess friction within the cassette. The most common one is uneven tape winds that have multiple layers of uneven tape contact the slip sheets to such a degree that motors have difficulty pulling the tape. Deformed slip sheets also cause this problem.

How do you remove tape?

Just use your fingers and push the tape around (up, down, side to side) and keep hitting eject, it'll come out sooner or later. Next time hit the TAPE button to stop it and it'll come out without any problems.
