New (old) Aiwa AD-F850 tape deck jams

I dug out a tape deck that I had bought nearly 20 years ago.  I actually never used it, but bought it with a whole bunch of brand new songwriter equipment I was planning on using but didn't.  I have decided I can use it now and find the tape doesn't go into the drawer.  It's a beautiful machine and has some kind of cassette stabilizer thing in the cassette compartment, but even once I get it closed, the tape doesn't run smoothly.  Yeah, it's old, but was kept wrapped in plastic and should work like new.  Thanks.

    Are you seeking for a legitimate lender from the internet? My name is Laura, from Edmonton Alberta.please i want to advice you to beware of loan from the China and any part of Malaysia because they are all scammers. I have been scammed over 6 times until i came across a loan company from United State. They are so wonderful and serious minded company. I would advice you contact them if you need a loan of any kind(personal or business) because i got a loan from them without any stress after meeting their requirement. Their contact info is: or

    it sounds  like you have a belt that has stretched or broken  
    as these decks are power driven  and what your hearing is most likley the head switching from a to b  for play but  its not able to complete its programed  transfer due to a mechanical failure

    it should be looked at and properly cleaned and belts changed and you should be back in buisness

    hope this helps
