Default Re: Sony SL-F30 not unloading

Can't be seen from the video clip, but are the flaps opening on the front of the machine?
If they don't, the cassette is prevented from escaping and gets reloaded.
It's easy to get the machine to attempt to load without a tape by moving the sensor plates on the carriage.
This will then immediately try to eject and you should see the sequencing of the cradle and flaps etc.. Be prepared to get your fingers out of the way quickly!
