Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Electronics Technician: Richard, Customer Service replied 2 years ago

ok, this one is a hassle as your going to need to open up the player by removing the screws fastening the cover (make sure it is unplugged from power first first).

Then you remove the Top plate and you will be able to take the Tape out. Be careful to take the tape out from around the heads if it is wrapped around this.

Let me know how you go with this.

yes, that is the solution, you have to take the cover off in order to get to the Tape.

Don't see where screws are holding cover...
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Just found them
Electronics Technician: Richard, Customer Service replied 2 years ago

ok, please proceed very carefully as if you do not note carefully what your doing you will have issues putting it back together. Make sure you feel confident doing this else you may be best to take it into a store to do.
