    after loading cassette tape from library into aiwa home audio system

    it won't play, eject, or do anything

    the 2nd tape deck won't play either
    i've tried resetting the unit (turn on while holding clear/off button)

    i took the side panels off, but i can't reach much

    please advise

    firstly: do not think about forcing the cassette door!
    Look inside the unit. You need to hand rotate the capstan flywheel a
    bit,( a large-ish metal disc attached to the motor via a rubber drive
    belt.)That should release the powered deck mechanism and allow
    ejection.
    Then buy a new drive belt , so that problem does not recurr.
