There may be debris inside the recorder that is stopping the mechanism from seating down properly or the cassette housing may have got damaged.
Both these causes will result in the tape being ejected immediately.
-
Unplug the recorder, turn it upside down and try giving it a shake from side to side. If there is anything stuck inside, this will normally dislodge it.
-
If that doesn't work, then the recorder will require servicing.
