My gentle way to get mine unstuck was to hook the tape with a dental pick and yank on it until it popped out. I think it's safe to say if there's a tape stuck in there now the mechanism is probably broken. Once you get the old one out I doubt you'll be listening to your old cassettes of the BeeGee's. Sorry. :)

I got mine out with a pair of long pliers and a screwdriver. But once you do that- the mechanism is definitely broken.

Mine was stuck when I bought it last summer. I've transfered all my old tapes worth keeping on to CD's so really don't care especially with having a 6 CD changer in the trunk. So I just kind of ignore it.

unstick tape from deck

I've had luck with a miniature flathead screwdriver, but not at the base where the pickup contact the tape. Rather along the side of the cassette, about where the gears/drivers are. It felt like I hit some sort of trigger and then the cassette popped right out.

good luck,
