Stereo issue: Cassette system jammed...
The stereo in my 1500 is convinced that there is a tape in it. I have tried _gently_ levering the casette tray while pressing the eject button, to no avail. I also tried inserting a tape to see if it was just confused, but the tape won't go in.

Anyone know if there's a quick fix or common failure point where I can start, or am i at the "tear it down and see what's not moving right" phase?

Thanks. :)

Oh... if this has already been covered, link me please. :)

Did you try it with the power on or off? You might want to try it with the power off too see if you can lift the cage where the tape goes into. Sometimes they get stuck in the down position. But if there's no tape in there, it's weird that it would be stuck down. You're going to need a long and thin metal instrument to get in there and pry it up slowly.

If you can't, maybe it's time to upgrade.

My first car had an 8 track. It was a 68 Mustang. Need I say more?

I don't think they sell tapes anymore. Maybe at flea markets.

Might be time to grab a stock CD player cheap from somebody who upgraded to aftermarket.
