Default Re: Sony SL-F30 not unloading

That looks to me as if it is jamming up on something. If the machine cannot complete the unloading cycle, it will re-load the tape to avoid leaving it half-loaded. If you can't see what it is jamming on in the time the machine is trying to unload, press eject, wait until the mech jams up, then pull the plug. This will give you more time to have a look around. When you power up again, the machine will just re-load the tape.
Nobody's perfect. I'm a nobody. Therefore I'm perfect!
