Well my dumbass friend decided to whip this out of his pocket while I was in the gas station and tried to play songs from his phone... it worked, but the damn tape won't come out now... wtf do I do to get it out? I press eject and it shutters and grinds...

Is it me or does it look like he put the tape in backwards.... wire towards the middle.

Here's what you do:

You tell your friend how much he owes you after you have a professional fix it.

My thoughts exactly.. looks like he put the side with the wire in first. lol

It looks like the wire is caught/jammed in the spinning parts of the tape player.

I see 4 options:

1. Leave it permanently
2. Buy my extra radio
3. Buy a brand new one http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/Radio_Bose/ES375623/
4. Try to take the radio apart and get the tape out w/o breaking anything.

the picture is misleading ill give you that, but its definitely not in there backwards. the cord is coming out of the front. thats not what is blocking it. i can pull on the cord and it doesnt help. needle nose vice here i come.

its been like that for 2 weeks now... and i was cleaning out my car so my 1/4 mile videos look decent and the damn tape wont come out.. ill probably order a new one since they are so damn cheap.

It sounds like the tape player may have gone bad.

I would butter knife it out like seerlah suggested, or nose pliers.

my vote is buy a new one, considering its only $23

edit: make your "dumbass friend" buy the new one

Usually I try to push and wiggle the tape while I press eject. But if all else fails you could open the deck or buy a new one.

It's really easy to take it apart and pull the tape out yourself, I had mine fully apart within minutes. You just have to take the top of the case off (4 screws) and then you can reach the tape player portion which is held in by 4 easy to reach screws.

Same problem here. Mines been stuck for 3 weeks. Only difference is; my dumbass put it in there. A friend advised against it... I regret not listening to him.
